  1. JoyNames Problem

    Thanks Pete, I did fix that. Deleted all the Helicopter related aircraft and profile and started over from within FSX & FSUIPC. All is now good, now UseProfiles=Yes in the INI file.
  2. JoyNames Problem

    Thanks again Pete. Re. The Helicopter Profiles, the only one re-installed is 1=WILCO-FSTR, the other two are not yet installed. I will review. Dane
  3. JoyNames Problem

    Pete - what can I say but simply THANK YOU YET AGAIN. I now completely understand the problem - due to my new Windows install and because I thought I was doing the right thing by pasting in my previous FSUIPC4.ini file, the settings did not jive. I made the changes and all is excellent. Thank you. PS - I have purchased your FSUIPC5 as I am going to be purchasing P3D v4 next week. Can I copy in my FSUIPC4.ini file and simply change the name to FSUIPC5.ini? Is there anything other file(s) that can or should be copied over?
  4. Due to Windows 10 Version 1709 I had to reset my PC during the installation of Version 1703, then I had to reinstall everything all over again. Everything is working great but I am stumped by by FSUIPC.ini file indicating <<MISSING JOYSTICK>> and also the second and third two lines that are in my saved FSUIPC.ini file get removed when I load FSX. I have attached my ini and my log files for review. LINE 2 MISSING - 0=Radio Switch Device LINE 3 MISSING - 0.GUID={B7441AB0-BD61-11E6-8009-444553540000}) [JoyNames] AutoAssignLetters=No C=Controller (Gamepad F310) << MISSING JOYSTICK >> C.GUID={A628CE50-0254-11E7-8001-444553540000} J=Logitech Extreme 3D << MISSING JOYSTICK >> J.GUID={F7DD4480-BD9C-11E6-8001-444553540000} R=T-Rudder << MISSING JOYSTICK >> R.GUID={D17FC700-30DC-11E7-8001-444553540000} 1=Controller (Gamepad F310) 1.GUID={18ECDE50-CD6F-11E7-8002-444553540000} 2=Logitech Extreme 3D 2.GUID={23DBF0D0-CD6F-11E7-8003-444553540000} 3=T-Rudder 3.GUID={EFC4ACB0-CD6E-11E7-8001-444553540000} FSUIPC4.ini FSUIPC4.log
  5. I don't mean to keep this post going but I just wanted to report my final update to my issue. I got my PC back from my tech guy today and all is well, I did not have to do a factory reset. What I did do was to uninstall the Windows Update KB4038788 restarted the PC, launched FSX-SE and went into the Load Flight... menu under FSUIPC in the ADD Ons - I DID NOT HAVE AN ISSUE. So for those experiencing crashes this may be the cause - if you copy and paste - Windows Update KB4038788 causing FSX crashes and P3D - into a Google search you will see that this is an issue for many people. That's all for my post... Regards, Dane.
  6. Regarding the above thread. My PC is in the tech shop as the technician is trying to resurrect it without me having to do a full factory reset. I have just finished reading three different threads that points to a recent Windows update which is causing FSX, FSX-SE, and P3D to crash - this could very well have been my problem?! Windows Update KB4038788 causing FSX crashes and P3D
  7. Thank you Pete, I will act on all this in a number of days as my computer is not happy. It decided to crash last night and will not restart it seems that I may have to do a complete factory reset and begin the extremely long and frustrating task of rebuilding and reinstalling everything from scratch, that is if I can remember everything - I am not a happy flier at this moment... Regards, Dane.
  8. Thomas, I installed FSUIPC4.971 but it did not solve the problem. I have done a great deal of elimination process and nothing seems to make a difference. What I have found is very strange but I can repeat the Microsoft crash every time - when I go to the ADD-ONS drop down and open the FSUIPC Loaf Flights... and then move my mouse up or down through the various saved flights, that is when it crashes. If I do not move my mouse in the saved flights area it does not crash - like I said I find this very strange. I am including another FSUIPC log as well as my FSUIPC ini file in case you want to have a look. FSUIPC4.ini FSUIPC4.log
  9. Thank you I will do that, then see
  10. FSUIPC4, Version 4.966c I have noticed that sometimes FSX-SE crashes the moment I go into the ADD-ONS Load Flight... when I have the Default Flight loaded. Other flights do not seem to cause this problem. I have attached my FSUIPC4.log for reference EDITED Just edited my info above as well as attaching this error message FSUIPC4.log
  11. Stuck in Profile Specific

    I have found my problem - please ignore my post. I found that I had conflicting (duplicated) aircraft names. Once I edited the names all was OK. One does learn a lot during these moments of trying to figure things out...
  12. Not sure if I have done something wrong, but it seems pretty simple to setup Profile Specific and add aircraft to it. However I must be doing something wrong as FSUIPC is stuck in Profile Specific mode. I had created a Helicopter Profile Specific and added two different helicopters into that profile and all works great. Then I loaded a new flight of a standard fixed wing aircraft to fly but FSUIPC did not recognize the fact that the aircraft loaded was not one of the helicopters and I did not see a way to turn off the Profile Specific check mark as it was greyed out, so I had to go into the FSUIPC4.ini file and change Use Profile=Yes to No, then restart FSX-SE and actually had to reconfigure a setting. Looking for help on this matter as I would like to keep using the profile specific feature. I have attached my FSUIPC4.log file
  13. P3D v4 - FSUIPC5

    Thank you DaveG I appreciate your reply.
  14. I searched the forum but did not see an answer so I will ask it. Just purchased P3D v4 and would like to purchase FSUIPC-5, my question is... Is there any problem if I copy in my many assignments and settings in my FSUIPC4.INI into the FSUIPC5?
  15. Thanks for your reply Pete, I will review further.
