Hello, what could be the problem?

Some kind of a certificate issue between your computer and activation.

Please try renaming the following file:

X-Plane/resources/plugins/Gizmo64.plugin/firmware/assets/ca_store/cacert.pem

To: _cacert.pem (adding the underscore).

Let us know if you have any trouble after this.

This would make it so your Windows OS certs are used instead.

Tried it, doesn't help. 

Then the login/password window appears

That's the issue, unfortunately. The above poster also went through this. You can see the resolution here: 

 

I have no plans to go to Win10 not until I build a new machine. OK Win7 11 years old but it is very stable after hundreds maybe thousands of fixes and XP + all addons I have works perfect so no reason to upgrade yet. Win10 is quite new, bugs is there. It is not like buying a new car. Same was with Win7 when i came, lots of strange problems.

I am an old programmer/developer and have seen systems/OS that not have been updated for decades, as those companys say "why change something that works perfect"
That is the way I think, my Win7 works perfect. No reason to upgrade now. Never have those problems I see on forums with XP + addons.

So if we must have Win10 to run your software then I have to remove your planes, maybe I can use the Ixeg 737. Still have an old Gizmo that works.

This is the first addon, so far, that I can not run. Have done several upgrades with other addons and they work.

Update a Win7 to Win10 is also very foolish, will always cause some problems. Only way is to do a clean install on a empty disk.

My experience with MS OS.

I do not agree. Win 7 to Win 10 was the most painless transition of any MS OS I had ever done.

Your mileage may vary, but trying to run a very outdated operating system that is not even supported by MS is not wise either. You should really upgrade before it becomes too late to actually safely migrate your data. There is likely NOT going to be a path from Win7 to Win11 (or whatever it will be called). THAT would be foolish and a hassle.
