A: Advantage Gold not recognizing Wheel Programs: For Advantage Gold to see the programs:

1. All programs must be installed normally in the default locations:. Windows Program files or Program files (x86).
2. All programs must have exactly the same user name.
3. All programs must be the current release. Older versions will not necessarily see the newer ones.

We recommend that you follow these instructions:
1. Uninstall any wheel programs.
2. Reinstall the latest install file for each wheel program you own from our downloads page.
3. Make sure to NOT change the destination folders. When it asks for the serial numbers, enter the codes you were given when you purchased the software.
They should all work together then. We will be working on an advanced interface to make this easier in the future.

Other f-key issues:
If you have a problem with the f-keys not working with our programs, this issue is usually caused by the function keys being re-mapped, especially on laptop computers which assign those keys to special hardware functions like changing the brightness or sound volume. Desktops that reassign the keys assign them to various windows functions like browse the Internet, or open email program and many of those keyboards come with software that lets you customize what happens when you press an F-Key.

Many desktop computers have an F-Lock key. Others have an FN key on the bottom row of keys to the right of the space bar between ALT and CTRL. these keys are used to switch between mapped functions and normal function key values.

F-Lock is usually an on/off switch, press it to enable normal function keys, press it again and it reverts to mapped keys.

FN key can be an on/off switch like the F-Lock key, but more often, especially on laptop computers, you must use FN like a special shift key, i.e. press and hold the FN key then touch the function key you want.
