Hello Pete,

 

after reading the content "Error message when installing FSUIPC 4.924a", I try to clean my registry too:
- I delete the old P3D (Version 1.4) registry inside the folder "HKEY_CURRENT_USER / Software / Lockheed Martin"

- Now I can see only the the correct registry "Prepar3D V2"
- AppPath =  C:\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\
- I delete different old versions of Prepar3D.cfg via the Windows Explorer
- Now one Prepar3D.cfg exists under: C:\Users\Andreas\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2
- After cleaning the registry, Windows 8.1 64bit was shut down and started again.
 

After restarting P3D V2 and shut down again, I try to install FSUIPC 4.923 with the following error message:

"Problem: Cannot edit the Prepar3D DLL.XML file to activate FSUIPC. Please make sure you run Prepa3D at least once before installing FSUIPC".

Please can you help me? Did I forgot something between cleaning the registry to find the Prepar3D DLL.XML ?

Please can you help me? Did I forgot something between cleaning the registry to find the Prepar3D DLL.XML ?

 

You can tell from the Install log. The P3D version 1 path is being found here (see emboldened part)::

 

Looking in registry for Prepar3D install path:
     HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\LockheedMartin\Prepar3D
     Parameter"SetupPath"
... >>>  OK! FOUND Prepar3D!  <<< ...
Looking in registry for Prepar3D v2 install path:
     HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2
     Parameter"SetupPath"
... >>>  OK! FOUND Prepar3D v2!  <<< ...

 

 

 

BTW version 4.923 is no longer supported. Please try the 4.925 installer in which I have made a small change to make sure the error refers to the correct verrsion (1 not 2).

 

Pete

Thank you very much Pete for your help.

After a complete Installation of Windows 8.1, I got a fresh registry.
At this moment it was easy to install FSUIPC.
