MCP keypress ineffective with iVap launched

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have this configuration: Win10, P3Dv4.1, registered FSUIPC 5.122, iVap 2.0.2-b2773, VRinsight MCP Combo 1, Saitek yoke+rudder My installation is brand new as I re-installed everything recently, even twice due to the problem I am experiencing.

Basically, my keypress assignment does not work when iVap is launched. Here are some logs to help you inderstand what happens:

*** Without iVap ***

I can't understand why this last action is ineffective. I have tried with LINDA, but I obviously get the same result. I am pretty sure iVap is guilty there, but I can't find how to solve this.

I've only found this post which seems to be related: http://forum.simflight.com/topic/81775-button-to-keypress-mapping-not-working-p3d-v335fsuipc-v4955c/
Does anyone has an idea ?

Thank you very much.

Regards

It appears as if iVap it intercepting the Windows keyboard messages sent to the main Sim Window procedure, thus stopping the sim seeing them. FSUIPC does the same thing when you assign a keypress in FSUIPC.

This, however,

is simply inaccurate.  That shows the button being released, for which you have no assignment (the P on the assignment means "pressed").

Thanks Pete,

Do you know why would iVap intercept those messages and how I could correct this behaviour?

Sorry, no, I've no idea about iVap. Have you tried asking on their support forum?

I finally made it work: P3D was not run as administrator, it seems that it has to!

Thanks anyway for your help and great work, Pete.

Was iVap running "as administrator"? Generally, either NOTHING should be run "as administrator", or everything related to it must be as well.

Yes, iVap was running as admin, as instructed by IVAO team. And P3D was not running as admin, as I havn't read such insctruction.

So with everything running as admin, it works well.

I find it quite surprising anything about iVAP worked at all.
