  1. Also tried to fix (the OP's problem) in P3D forum: https://www.prepar3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6312&t=137149https://www.prepar3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6312&t=137149
  2. I checked the FSUIPC v5.155 keys on my setup (P3Dv4.5HF2) and all ok.
  3. John, I made notes from the forum posts then : "You will also need to remove and re-install FSUIPC. To do this, remove the FSUIPC5 entry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\FSUIPC5, and manually delete the F:\Modules folder." ** I backed up the entire current F:\P3Dv4\Modules folder (it has VRS TackPack data and my current fsuipc.ini files). ** Also, backed up my current fsuipc.ini file F:\modules folder (out of extra caution). ** Renamed current F:\ modules folder (in case I need it later). ** out of caution I also exported (as you mentioned) the reg key : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 and also exported the entire registry (a really large file). ** removed (deleted) the FSUIPC5 entry from the registry. "If you then re-run the FSUIPC5 installer, it should hopefully find your P3D installation and install in the correct place, as well as correcting your dll.xml file." Yes, FSUIPC v152 installer worked and installed ok as far as I can tell. I will use / test the new version setting up buttons in the VRS FA18E later today. The FSUIPC install log found my P3D folder : "Looking in registry for Prepar3D v4 install path: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 Parameter"AppPath" ... >>> OK! FOUND Prepar3D v4! <<< ... AppPath=F:\P3Dv4\" Note: the FSUIPC installer did not have to look for reg entry SetupPath. And it updated my dll.xml as you said it would. Pete and John Thank for you kelp. Much appreciated.
  4. Ok, Thanks for the follow up. I will have a look at it this afternoon.
  5. Ok, Thanks again for the follow up. I first have to find out how to back up the Win10 registry. I will search the internet.
  6. Ok, Thanks for confirming your P3Dv4 registry entry. As for my wrong registry entry I have no idea how it got there ... I have not edited the registry. I went back and seen I had made a typo error when posting in the forum. I should have type SetupPath.
  7. Ok, When you mentioned " Presume 'StuPath' is an error? Anyway, change so that you have SetupPath set to 'F:\P3Dv4\' " I wanted to verify prior to making any changes that that is what FSUIPC was looking for. Thanks again for confirming. Much appreciated.
  8. John, Thanks for the additional information on the registry. Maybe someone with a proper registry for P3Dv4.5HF1 (where their FSUIPC install worked ok) could do a quick check and confirm the suspected bad entry and show what their entry is.
  9. John, Thanks for the follow up. From the information I posted do you happen to know what the problem is with my P3D install and what I could do to correct it?
  10. I found this information on the internet when looking for information on P3D registry data.: http://drzewiecki-design.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=293 Prepar3Dv4: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 - key name is "SetupPath" I do not have this data entry. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 - key name is "SetupPath" Mine is StupPath F: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 - key name is "AppPath" Mine is AppPath F:\P3Dv4\... Are these the registry entries that FSUIPC is looking for? Are they in error on my setup?
  11. Add-on products (aircraft/scenery) that have ask me to point to my p3d install folder have installed ok. All add-ons and scenery that I have installed are working properly, including FSUIPC, except that FSUIPC installs to the F:\ instead of where I pointed FSUIPC to: F:\p3dv4.
  12. Hello, I upgraded my OS from WIN7 to Win10 because I got a message from Microsoft advising me the end was nearing for security Updates for Win7 from Microsoft. I ended up resetting the Win10 install because I had problems with some aps and it uninstalled some of my apps. Now some (not all) aps telling me my registry is not pointing to P3D properly. So I messed up on my P3D uninstall/reinstalls along the way while learning a new OS. I ended up reinstalling P3Dv4.5HF1 to F:P3Dv4 (previously on my 😄 drive , (was installed there twice). Currently when I installed FSUIPC and I pointed its installer to my correct P3D install folder F:\P3Dv4. I am rather sure I got a message from FSUIPC saying there was a problem with the normal P3D location and that FSUIPC could easily correct it and I accepted that. When the FSUIPC install finished I noticed that FSUIPC Modules folder was installed here : F:\Modules rather than inside F:\P3Dv4\Modules. It is working ok but I thought it would install to my F:\P3Dv4 folder. Note: Later when I installed the VRS F18 it asked me where my P3D was installed ... I answered F:\P3Dv4 and it created a Modules folder inside my F:\P3Dv4 path for its data files. So, just wonder how to get the FSUIPC data to normally install to F:\P3Dv4 also? I copied my FSUIPC log here for a reference: ****** Installer for FSUIPC5.DLL version 5.151 Looking in registry for Prepar3D v4 install path: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 Parameter"AppPath" ... >>> OK!

  13. After I sent you the screenshots I uninstalled / removed FSC9 from my new WIN10 / P3Dv4.fHF1 PC setup.
  14. Thanks for the reply. Previously i was on WIN7 and (FSX and P3Dv4.5) and all ok with FSCommander. My just now new setup with WIN10 upgrade I had not installed FSX (maybe at futiure date) , just P3Dv4.5HF1. So, in reading the forum post in the English part (I failed to read the content) I assumed FSC now supporting P3Dv4 (screenshot). Naturally that was my error. I ran the DB Manager again and got the screenshot for you. As always, thanks for answering to my setup error.
  15. I have a new WIN10 install with new install of P3Dv4.5 (hot fix1) Installs at: F:\P3Dv4 F:\FSC9 I downloaded FSC975 and installed it. When I run the database manager it finishes instantly after selecting the scenery file location. Like it is not reading and processing data. Then when I run FSC9 it does not load and tells me to read the FSC_info.log. I cannot find the log?
