An update to this.

JoinFS can be installed on a Linux machine running wine.

I don't own a mac but believe there are windows emulators for them too, so you could probably do the same on a Mac.

Using wine on on your linux PC.....
Install Simconnect.msi (I used the Xpack simconnect).
Install JoinFS.msi

I run it in the KDE desktop environment GUI and not from the command line.

Job done.

It may work, but I'd need to compile part of the program to specifically target the ARM processor. It's one for a later version I reckon. ;)

To be clear, I have ZERO experience with Linux, so thought it would be fun to try to see if I could get it to work. I'm way too ignorant of the way of Linux to make it go. LOL

I was using Ubuntu. Could never even get wine installed. It kept failing and giving me errors about "unmet dependencies". None of the fixes that I found would remedy the errors. So I moved on to trying to install from source. That ran into several walls as well.

This would be a great application for the Pi and I hope Peter keeps this on his long list of features.

Yup the Raspberry Pi is a different beast as it's an arm processor like Peter mentioned.

I also had an unsuccessful try also.
It might be able to be done with QEMU for pi or Eltech if somebody had a spare week to have a go.
