This worked for me after two days on-and-off fiddling.

Below is the "Read Me" I wrote for myself.

Vista - server/XP - remote.

To install on remote computer:
1)Set up SimConnect on both machines.
2)Run FSXGET setup.exe on remote.
3)Run FSXGET and install FSX Google Earth Tracker.msi upon prompt.
4)Run Google Earth Tracker on remote and right-click options at tray icon.
5)In Flight Simulator-Connection tabs - configure relevant settings.Exit.

6)Start Google Earth.
7)Select right-click again and Create Google Earth KML File.Exit

To run FSXGET:
1)Run Google Earth Tracker.
2)Start Google Earth.
3)Start FSX.
4)Wait for balloon notification on remote - "Connected to FSX!".
5)In Google Earth go to File and open KML file.
6)Click "User Aircraft" in left-hand pane.
7)Select/Unselect what you want to show.

Hope this helps someone.

Anybody know how to keep aircraft centered on map?

Hello asabi,

at the moment there's no such option in FSXGET itself. The feature does already exist in the current development version but it's still a long way till this version will be released.

Nevertheless, there is an option in Google Earth when you right-click a placemark and have a look at the property pages. You can select to center the view on this placemark. This will make google earth follow it when it's position is update.

This works but isn't very smooth neither does it allow you to control any viewing options, but these features will most certainly be present in future versions of FSXGET.
