Pre TTS software for I-Magic and Fortius trainers.

Post by KeithD » Wed Aug 29, 2012 12:24 pm

Here is a link to download the Fortius Software.
Use with a 32 bit operating system only.
Will work with I-Magic and Fortius Trainers.
This will not work on 64 bit operating systems.

Fortius 2.0.2
https://docs.google.com/open?id=0Bxx_RW ... XBqMURlVEU

Download, Unzip and burn to a disc.
Use a 32 bit windows O/S to run Fortius.
Duel booting is the best if your main O/S is 64 bit.

You can learn about duel booting from this link. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/80 ... -7-xp.html

If however you have a very new computer that does not support 32 bit at all then you may use VMWARE to use a virtual operating system.
This works well on new fast computers.
Get it here

Once you have a 32 bit O/S you can then. Install and Fortius.


Patch 2.0.3

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B-M7cK ... 1BndHE4dmc

Patch 2.0.4

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B-M7cK ... k85WWxwaUk


The Velodrome software can be downloaded from this link.

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0Bxx_RW ... FoxS2FTZDA
Let me know if this works OK.

Extreme MTB can be downloaded from this link

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0Bxx_RW ... 252SjY5eU0

The VCF got permission from Tacx to use the Fortius software as it is now obsolete as this software is no longer supported by Tacx.

Tacx or the VCF are not responsible for any software issues that you may have, but I am sure that the community of users will help solve any problems if you encounter them.

This is the I-Magic Green software.
It is a separate program to Fortius and TTS.
Anyone using an I-Magic can use this software using a 32 bit operating system.
The green I-Magic software will not work with Fortius Trainers or the newer Tacx Trainers.

Join in the I-Magic event.

I-Magic Software main program. Unzip and install
https://docs.google.com/open?id=0Bxx_RW ... GJ0TDR1RFE

Extra terrain Sipscape. Install after the first program

I have now used VMwre to run a Fortius and I-Magic from a Windows 7 64 bit Operating system.

All you have to do is download the free program
http://www.vmware.com/products/player/? ... wpxqnlknea
Run VM and install Window XP 32 bit.

Adjust the settings to get the correct screen size and download Fortius software and install on the xp virtual machine.

Remember to download the Fortius files when using the Virtual XP and not from the host .

If you have problems make a new topic on the forum I will try to help out.
My tests so far have been encouraging its fairly easy to set up and Fortius runs very well.

If as sometimes happens your Fortius Software refuses to work and you have tried everything then you may have to reinstall the Software. First though you must uninstall it.
use the uninstall program then do the following according to your operating system.
One you have done this you can then reinstall Fortius using the supplied downloads

Error Code: -5005 : 0x8000ffff - uninstall your software

The unistall function went wrong. Some of the Tacx Fortius programs have not been uninstalled. Due to that it is not possible to reinstall the program. Also it is possible that one of the updates did not work properly

How to solve this
Below procedure explains how to unistall you software and save your files

If you need to reinstall the software and you do not want to loose you saved date, please follow below instructions. This is the standard directory instruction. If you have installed your software on a different Driver, you must change too this directory.


Save your records / Save your files (Windows XP and Windows 2000)

Real Life Video’s
Cut C:\Program files\TacxFortius\Catalyst\ the folder Video
Cut C:\Program files\TacxFortius\Catalyst\ the folder Program
These directories have been chosen by you during installation (could be a different location)
Cutting you video makes the savingtime much shorter then copying the files.
(so including the Video map name!) to and paste them to an other location.

Save Files (Same action as above)
Copy C:\Program files\TacxFortius\Catalyst\ the folder Runs
Copy C:\Program files\TacxFortius\i-Magic\Data\ the folder Route
Copy C:\Program files\TacxFortius\i-Magic\Data\ the folder Pilot Route
These directories have been chosen by you during installation (could be a different location)


Make sure that you do not copy these files in the Tacx Fortius Directory because this directory will be erased.
After installation of the Fortius Software you can replace these files at the same location. Now you have restored your save files (and video’s)



Windows Vista
First, open windows explorer (or file opener)
Go to the top of the page
Go to the extra menu and select your map options
There select the tab display and scroll down.
Now just select the box with display hidden maps

Real Life Video
C:\Program files\TacxFortius\Catalyst\ the folder Video
C:\Program files\TacxFortius\Catalyst\ the folder Program
These directories have been chosen by you during installation (could be a different location)

Save Files
These could be stored as the XP files., or
C:\Users\ Select your login Name \ AppData \ Local \ Virtual Store \ Program Files \ Tacx Fortius \ Catalyst \ the folder Runs

Restore the files by putting them back in the same directory
This is the procedure to reinstall the Fortius software.

Make sure you have followed the instruction to save you saved files.

It is no longer possible to uninstall by a button -> Tacx Fortius > uninstall. Follow the procedure to uninstall the Software.


Go to Start - Settings – Configuration screen - Software
Select Fortius i-Magic and then the button: remove
Select Fortius and then the button : remove
Select Velodrome (if you have it) button remove

The following is just to be 100% sure that everything is uninstalled.

Clean Directory
We have to be sure that the Directory of Tacx Fortius is cleared. Sometimes you get the error message in the header trying to uninstall the software.

You must follow below procedure to clean the Tacx Software from you PC.
Example: C:\program files\TacxFortius\
Remove the complete directory (the Tacx Fortius Directory)

Registry Clean-up Part 1
A. Click on START > RUN and type "regedit".
B. The Register Editor opens.
C. Navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > MICROSOFT > WINDOWS > CURRENT VERSION > UNINSTALL
D. Remove the following items (if existing by pressing Del)
Fortius Menu
{D2BAFC44-D10B-401E-B744-808CAA85E886}
Fortius VR
{2555AF7D-1766-42E9-934C-E408933AEBF9}:

For Vista Users
Go to the windows logo and start a search. Type in “regedit”

Follow above procedure from B.

Registry Clean-up Part 2.
Navigate in the Registry to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > TACX
Just delete the Tacx Directory (by pressing the delete button)
The most relative Tacx Fortius Files have been erased


Now we are ready to do a new installation of the Fortius
