  1. John, Appears to be working as expected. Thank you so much. Support here for the software is top notch. The very best. Hal
  2. Good morning (where I live), As the title says, I had to reinstall Win10 and FSX. With that my controllers have different ID's now in the FSUIPC .ini file. I am using auto letters for the assignments. All assignments are now for the wrong Controller. Is this something I change or fix on my end? I have had a look at the manuals but did not see what to do in this case. Likely just did not find the proper section. I have a registered version 4.971. It has installed correctly according to the install log. I think I have included all the
  3. Sorry for the confusion Pete, I am running FSX and MSFS on the same computer. This question has been related to FSX. I use the mouse to activate various switches etc. in the Cockpit. To look around and locate some of the switches I sometimes use the mouse look to get to the switch. I find on my machine that the panning is too slow. I use a 3 monitor set up, see attached. The free look or mouse look is not really a big requirement as I can access all the buttons and switches required with a couple of key presses. I have my various panels (overhead, throttle quadrant, etc.) mappe
  4. Thanks for the reply Pete. I am OK with using the mouse. In MSFS the mini joystick axis is able to be assigned to the free look function, and works great. No toggle required to activate. No conflict with normal mouse operation. Just kind of hoped that it might be able do the same thing in FSX. I will start my quest by studying the advanced user manual. I have never gone into that one yet. Thanks again for the response. Hal
  5. Good day, Using FSUIPC 4.971, registered version I have a Thrustmaster TWCS Throttle. It has a mini joystick that FSUIPC sees as Joystick D with X & Y axis. Is there a way I can assign the freelook (mouse look) function to this Joystick. Currently I have a button on my yoke (CH Eclipse) set to toggle the mouse look function then use the mouse, then toggle back. Thanks for any assistance. Hal
  6. Pete, Took a short flight in my CRJ700. and everything is working as was before. Your assistance and patience is greatly appreciated. Hal
  7. OK, just fired up the Sim on the new computer, then WideClient on the remote and we have success. Just wish I knew what the issue was and what fixed it.
  8. I did not know or suspect that I could install on more that one machine. Not that it matters. I was not attempting to connect FSX to FSX. I was only trying to run KAcars and weather on the old computer. I will be trying it shortly again and report back here. I have a feeling that I fixed something last night, just don't know what I did that might have fixed it.
  9. Pete, To clarify. FSUIPC has been completely removed from the old computer. When I used it for the flight sim I used the laptop for networking, weather and other things that I could do on a remote. My intentions were to replace the laptop with the old computer using only WideClient . So the only thing FSUIPC related that remains on the old computer is WideClient, which is also on the laptop. I do not, and will not, use any software that I do not have a license to use. That is why I have 3 copies of FSX, In case I ever want to set up to fly multiplayer on the LAN. If in the fut
  10. Hello again Pete, I have a problem that is not likely associated with FSUIPC or WideFS. When I open the flight sim on the new PC it shows "WideServer waiting for clients" normal and good. I start WideClient on two other machines and get "Waiting for a connection". They never connect. I have to assume that I have a setting problem on the new PC. All machines are on a wired network. Two have static ip's and the laptop is using dynamic IP The 2 desktops I have are running Win 10 Pro, and the laptop is running Win 10 Home. I have been using the laptop networked to the old PC
  11. Pete, Thank you, I will make the changes shortly. I have a breakfast appointment this morning. I will report back when done. Hal
  12. Thanks again for your assistance Pete, The files you requested are attached below Hal FSUIPC4.ini FSUIPC4.log
  13. I think I have all the flight sim files migrated over to the new computer. All hardware attached and recognized by Win 10. I have FSX installed in C\FSX. I have FSUIPC installed on the new computer but I have not registered it yet. It is still installed on this computer which will be networked to the flight sim computer with Wide Client. I now have Wide Client set up on this one but want to remove FSUIPC and WIDEFS before registering on the new computer. What is my next step in moving the .ini file over. I have run FSX to update the ini with the letter designations and it all went s
  14. OK, I wasn't sure but I thought it might be that way. I haven't changed anything yet. Will likely be firing up the sim tonight some time. Just finishing some of the installs on the new computer. I have been reading through some of the other messages, and I have to say the the support here is exceptional. Thanks Pete Hal
  15. I am preparing the ini file now. From what you wrote, I only need to manually edit the [JoyNames] section? Current: [JoyNames] AutoAssignLetters=no 0=CH PRO PEDALS USB 0.GUID={D54933C0-AF11-11E9-8001-444553540000} 1=CH ECLIPSE YOKE 1.GUID={D54ABA60-AF11-11E9-8002-444553540000} 2=T.16000M 2.GUID={D54ABA60-AF11-11E9-8003-444553540000} 3=TWCS Throttle 3.GUID={D54ABA60-AF11-11E9-8004-444553540000} After edit: [JoyNames] AutoAssignLetters=yes A=CH PRO PEDALS USB A.GUID={D54933C0
