    serial number is not valid

    Hi Peter. I recently rebuilt my computer. Installing FSUIPC 5 i have a new serial for version 5 from when I purchased the module. I had previously purchased Wide FS with v4 of FSUIPC. From my reading I can then use that serial to register Wide FS with version 5 FSUIPC? The FSUIPC registration is fine however I cannot register WideFS as I get a message the 12 digit key is invalid. Can you assist please? Regards Robert

    saitek throttle quadrant problem

    Peter thanks for the info re the throttles. Are there any other axes we should not calibrate through FSUIPC?

    Control Axis/Calibration issues

    Jamil one thing I did when I had a similar problem Made sure the delta for each axis was a small as possible.

    Trim Wheel saitek/ fsuipc

    Interesting are you certain you have disabled the axes on ALL of your TQ yolks etc in FSX?? I have the yolk, 2xTQ , rudder pedals and a 3D extreme. you will be surprised that all of these have all the same assignments for axes etc by and large so check to ensure that each controller has that function disabled in FSX. good luck..

    Trim Wheel saitek/ fsuipc

    Well I use the Saitek yoke. I don't use the axis side of things to calibrate the trim wheel. IN FSUIPC I merely use Buttons and Keys and assign elev trim up and down. Works a treat and I have never had an issue with the trim wheel using that method.

    Prepar3d v2 Joystick issues

    Kevin you might also go through all the joystick assignments via the P3Dv2 menu options controls and make sure all the joystick assignments are deemed or that you don't have any conflicting ones of you have left the joystick enabled in P3Dv2 just did all that myself
  7. no responses?? interesting dont bother I worked it out for myself from reading myriad forum entries. Why is it so difficult for 'experts" to help beginners?? One of my little life sayings' " all experts were once beginners" I have to say that it is not always easy to follow what the experts write as you write from a platform of assumed knowledge which leaves out the "little and necessary" details to successfully complete a task. Flitedeck is now working with GPSout a treat and I am very happy using it. Rob
  8. Hi Nephi Being new to this I am trying nut out how to use the exact same scenario as you describe above. Any chance you can post your setting with a step by step instruction sequence. I don't have much hair left - I would like to keep what little I possess :mrgreen: Regards Rob
