Hi,

FSUIPC shows as registered on the add-ons drop down box but when I load Airhauler it gives a message saying, "FSUIPC not found in FS installation".

I'm hoping it's a simple fix - any ideas?

Thanks!!!

FSUIPC doesn't even have to be Registered to use Air Hauler. It is licensed to use FSUIPC in any case.

Your thread title says "FSUIPC not recognised by FSX", but that cannot be true if there's an FSUIPC entry in the FSX Add-Ons menu!

Are you perhaps running FSX "as administrator" and Air Hauler not, or vice versa. Different privilege levels will certainly stop them talking to each other.

If that's not it, close FSX and show me the FSUIPC4 log file (not the Installer log), which you'll find in the FSX Modules folder.

Hi,

I'm using XP rather than vista - not quite sure how to change programs from administrator to something else......

Where would I find the FSUIPC4 log file? I have looked in the FSX folder and it just seems to hold IFR plans.


Many Thanks,

The FSUIPC4 log file is in the same place as FSUIPC4 and its INI file -- the FSX Modules folder.

Sounds like you aren't looking even in the main FSX folder, but the documents folders.

No, that's the INI file with your FSUIPC settings saved ("configuration settings"). It seems like you have Explorer set to hide the filenames from you for files of known types. The log file (called "FSUIPC4.log") is probably seen in that silly mode as "FSUIPC" with type "text file" or something similar.

I see you are using 4.57. You might find the update available in the Updates and other goodies announcement at the top of this forum better in the long run.

Or is it this one?

Installer for FSUIPC4.DLL version 4.50

Looking in registry for FSX install path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator\10.0
Parameter"SetupPath"
Looking in registry for ESP install path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft ESP\1.0
Parameter"SetupPath"
Not there, so looking in:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft ESP\1.0
Parameter"AppPath"
... NOT found! ...
===========================================================

INSTALLATION FOR FSX:
AppPath="C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\"
Checking version of FSX.EXE:
... Version 10.0.61472.0 (Need at least 10.0.60905.0)
Checking compatibility with installed SimConnect:
Found SimConnect build 60905 (Original)
Found SimConnect build 61259 (Acc/SP2 Oct07)
Checking if there's already a version of FSUIPC4 installed in:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Modules\FSUIPC4.DLL
... Version 4.570 found.
Installed version is later: it is not overwritten.
Looking for the current user's Application Data path:

Now checking DLL.XML ...

... FSUIPC4 section already exists but will be replaced.
... FSUIPC4 section of DLL.XML written okay
Now checking for a SimConnect.XML file ...
... No SimConnect.XML file found. This is okay.
Now installing additional files into the Modules folder:

That is it, and it checks out fine.

There is nothing wrong with your FSUIPC4 installation. I don't know what Air Hauler is complaining about, so you'll have to ask them. I notice that it says

"FSUIPC not found in FS installation"

rather than not being able to talk to it, so maybe it is looking for the FS path and finding the wrong one? Maybe you installed it for FS9 not FSX or something like that? I don't know why it would need to find the file itself, that's something you'll need to ask there.

I'd still recommend that you replace the FSUIPC4.DLL with the update in the Announcement I mentioned.

Regards
Pete

Hey there, I've been playing Air Hauler on FSX for a while now, too. I had the exact same problem you did. If I play just FSX, I have the FSUIPS4 thing. It has the menu and all the add on stuff on my tool bar. However, when I play Air Hauler, it says I don't have it installed and it gives the same problems you had. Did you ever find a fix for it? I'm anxious to hear. Thanks for your help!

Make sure you are running AirHauler with the same privilege level as FS, i.e. both programs must be "run as administrator" or both not run as administrator.
