Due to the graphics- and memory-intensive nature of the GTN PC Trainer, it should be the only application running on your PC. In some cases, even if your computer meets the minimum system requirements, the trainer may not function properly. This is sometimes due to the unique configuration of each computer and the extra processes that are utilized by that computer.
