All my gauges are black out?

Recommended Posts

I just Purchased FSUIP and received my KEY.

Please note that for these keys to work you MUST be using FSUIPC version

3.53 or later. Download the latest from http://www.schiratti.com/dowson.( Did this!)

1. I Run Flight Simulator (with FSUIPC installed according to its documented

instructions) ( Did This!)

2. When it is running fully (not waiting at the initial flight selection

screen), enter the FSUIPC options via the FSUIPC item in the Modules menu

(type ALT M F or use the mouse (Did this ok!)

2. You will see the main "About" screen in FSUIPC. Click on the button on

the right labelled "Register FSUIPC (Did this ok!)

3. In the dialogue which appears, enter the following.

4. Put in Name and KEY

5. 5. Click on the OK button. You should get confirmation that the

registration was accepted ( Did this ok and was excepted! )

6. 6. Click "Confirm" then exit from the FSUIPC options, shut down Flight

Simulator, and restart it. Your FSUIPC installation should now be fully

registered. You can check by going to its options again. ( Did This ok)

7. Open FS, let open default flight Cessna at Seattle! Then I pick my Boeing-PMDG 737-600 VC Like always!

8. It opens aircraft running but no gauges all black out

9. Can some one help with this

10. Thank in advance

This is probably one for the PMDG support folks. I don't know their aircraft. However, there are tow things I can think of:

1. Perhaps there's no power? The 737-600 has a glass cockpit system and needs electric power to show anything. Have you checked battery etc? The PMDG aircraft are quite sophisticated and usually it isn't a matter of load-and-fly.

2. If you do think it possibly has anything to do with FSUIPC (like, did this aircraft work differently BEFORE you registered FSUIPC?) then please load up FS again, load the aircraft, see the problem, close FS, the show me the FSUIPC.LOG file which you'll find in the FS Modules folder.

Regards,

Pete

Thank you Pete for the reply

to let you know,everything was working before I registered!

As far as the battery goes , I can't turn on lights like the panel, but yet the landing ligts go on, but no Logo or postion lights no strobe light this all seams strange don't you think? I be more than happy to contack the PMDG support folks but I don't believe thats my problem?

I can't find any FSUIPC.LOG anywere in the fs Modules folder? How would I get to that? I copy this maybe it will help. ********* FSUIPC, Version 3.48 by Pete Dowson *********

Been fixed thank Pete.

Blank CRTs with overhead panel problems on all 737 aircraft

This is caused by corruption of the FSUIPC files and can be corrected as follows:

Go to the Flight Simulator 9/Modules folder and delete the FSUIPC.dll, FSUIPC.txt, FSUIPC.cfg and FSUIPC.key files.

Go to Peter Dowsons website and download the latest version of FSUIPC.

Place the FSUIPC.dll file in the Flight Simulator 9/Modules folder and fire up Fs9 and the problem should be solved.

In that case it is most certainly a problem with your Key.

I can't find any FSUIPC.LOG anywere in the fs Modules folder? How would I get to that? I copy this maybe it will help.

That IS the FSUIPC.LOG file. What do you mean, you can't find it???

********* FSUIPC, Version 3.48 by Pete Dowson *********

Version 3.48!!! No wonder -- if your registration was purchased in 2006 you need 3.53 or later! Current is 3.65!

The log proves it is a Key or Version problem. Please ALWAYS use the latest version!

Pete

Not corruption. You were using version 3.48 which is too old for a 2006 user registration, as was clearly notified to you in the email with the Keys.

Go to the Flight Simulator 9/Modules folder and delete the FSUIPC.dll, FSUIPC.txt, FSUIPC.cfg and FSUIPC.key files.

There's absolutely no need to delete anything at all. If you do you lose all your settings. All you need to do is replace the FSUIPC.DLL with the latest version (3.65 at present).

Pete
