  1. Hello all I know this is an old post, but l have been having the same problem. "The folder of Google Earth does not meet the expectations of the operating system" I am running Windows 7..... FSX gold.... FSC 9.6 (tried this in 9.2 and it also works) I think l have found the problem.......The newer versions of Google Earth. I went into "Google Earth auto updates" and downloaded and installed Version 6.1. (We are now on 7.4) Everything now works fine, Google Earth auto-loads as soon as you click "show position in Google Earth" WONDERFUL Bigcav

    red FSC aircraft size

    Hello Volker Thanks for the swift reply. Am on my 5th or 6th version of FSC. Love it. Bigcav
  3. Hello I was wondering if there is anyway to reduce the size of the red FSC aircraft in Google Earth? Regards Bigcav 1. FSX 2. FSUIPC = 4.9 WideFS =7.9 3 .FS Commander =9.4 build 11th December 2013 Database Manager = 9.4 15th December 2013 4. Aerosoft Version 5. Op system = Windows 7 32bit
  4. Hello I have used Flightsim commander it its various versions now for several years and over all l find it the best flight planner/moving map. But, l wish you would do somthing about the size of the little GPS window. I run FSC on a different computer to FSX, it is only a little screen and is four/five feet away from me. My eye sight isnt what it used to be and l am having trouble reading such a small box. I was hoping that the GPS window in the new V9 would be sizeable. I have installed the latest update, but nothing seems to have changed, other than being able to connect to Google earth, which is very good by the way. I have read somewhere that the GPS window cant be changed because it's a 'graphic', what ever that is, but surely someone as smart as you can do somthing. After all you must have made the original gpsbox, size and all, so why cant you make it bigger or sizeable. Please do something. Regards carl vokes

Can any body help me please. Regards Carl Vokes

    FSUIPC upgrade

    Hello Pete "Oh no its him again" Have installed the update and have tried flying from various airfields with various levels of traffic. WideFs kicks in every time. The airfield l use as adefault is KEDW Edwards Airfield. Middle of the desert, but the airfield itself is quite detailed and l do have most things turned up. Is there anything l can do to get rid of it or am l thinking above my brain level? Pointed them to your forum and had the following two replies: So thats it really. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP. I know somtimes you must have thought you were dealing with a complete idiot. Well lm not complete yet, but l'm working on it. Thanks again Regards Carl

    Hello Pete Two things 1. Dont know why its trying to start REX2. It was un-installed last August! 2. l think you might have cracked it..... I set up a flight from SAWB, thats in the Antartic, so, no traffic. Didnt touch any of the traffic sliders. Pressed 'fly now' and WHAM.. WideFS kicked in within 10 seconds. How about that!! Regards Carl

    FSUIPC upgrade

    Hello Pete Bet your thinking "Oh no not him again" I do only ever run it if l add an aircraft or airfield, but when l first had trouble with WideFS not starting, l had those aircraft i.d. across the tool bar, so l un-installed TrafficX to see if it would clear the Widefs connection problem up. IT DID. I then re-installed it and ran the TCC to set it up again. Problem returned. Un-installed it and then re-installed it, but without running TCC. No problem. I dont runTCC evrytime. No point. Dont know if it the same one, but found exe.xml(not EXE.XML) in the same folder as the FSX.cfg file. It say that it was last modified on the 13/11/2010. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252" ?> - <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>exe.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> - <Launch.Addon> <Name>Real Environment Xtreme - Weather Engine 2</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\Real Environment Xtreme 2.0\rexwxengine2.exe</Path> </Launch.Addon> - <Launch.Addon> <Name>Saitek Panel(s) Plugin for FSX</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\Saitek\Pro Flight Panels\SaiPanels.exe</Path> <CommandLine>-run</CommandLine> </Launch.Addon> - <Launch.Addon> <Name>GoFlight Hardware Interface</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\GoFlight\GFDevFSX.exe</Path> <CommandLine /> </Launch.Addon> - <Launch.Addon> <Name>Saitek Panel(s) Plugin for FSX</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\Saitek\Pro Flight Panels\SaiPanelsFS9.exe</Path> <CommandLine>-run</CommandLine> </Launch.Addon> - <Launch.Addon> <Name>Saitek DirectOutput RadioStack</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\Saitek\DirectOutput\SaiFlightSimX.exe</Path> <CommandLine>-run</CommandLine> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document> Dont know how that was installed but it has been un-installed now! Yes If its a toss up between TrafficX going out the window and WideFS, then its good-bye TrafficX and hello some other AI traffic program. Any suggestions? Regards Carl

    Hello Pete Glad you sorted the FAQ out. Thought it was me being thicker than l usually am. Sent you the simconnect0 file to your e-mail. Hope you got it? Have sorted out where the simconnect logging files are kept so l can get at them when ever you want. Will save a copy of each if need be. Regards Carl

    Hello Pete Have got the simconnect. log sort of working. It comes up and scrolls on the desktop next to fsx in window mode but is not sending the data to a file anywhere. Not even the modules one. Any ideas Regards Carl

    FSUIPC upgrade

    Hello Pete I probably wont explain this very well, but here goes. TrafficX sits inside the FSX program. Once you have installed it, it fires up automatically when you open FSX. There is a program within TrafficX called "Traffic control centre" , which you are supposed to run after first installing TrafficX so it can pick up the airfield and aircraft cfgs and create the flight plans. But it seems to do that anyway without running TCC. However.. During the course of running TCC there is a section called "Traffic movements" where you get it to "compile trafficx flight plans" It asks you were you want them stored. In the instrctions that come with it, it says to put them in and over-write the trafficX.bgl file. Once you have done everything its asks, unless you want to add/remove somthing, i.e. aircraft, airfield, flight plan etc, you dont need to run it again. The problem l am having only occures after l run the TCC. Thinking back, TrafficX hasn't run quite right since l moved on to Windows 7. It ran ok in Vista. Dont know if any of this helps Regards Carl
