  1. Thanks for the FSUIPC4 and SimConnect log files. Oddly enough, even though you say the problem occurred 1 hour into the flight, there are many problems right from the start. In fact it looks like the double FSUIPC menu entry might have been there since the 520th second, or thereabouts -- there are 4 reconnections around the startup! I was checking the menu frequently during the flight anytime I noticed a "longer than normal" stutter, just to insure that the control loss had not occured. I also tweaked thrust settings at several points during my climbout and allwas well. Yes, but when are you checking these figures? I have a small utility called MemStatus 2.50 that sits in my tray and displays the main and video memory usage. I keep an eye on it and it did not get above 50% usuage for either resource during this flight. That's a new one on me.I hadn't noticed that DLL before. I'll dig around and see where it is and where it came from and when it "arrived". Then I'll disable it and go flying. Thanks for taking the time to look into this, Pete, and to make the changes you have planned. Especially with the holidays and your father's heath problems. My 85 year old father fell and broke his hip a couple of weeks before Xmas but was fortunate enough to be able to be home for Christmas. And too think, at 65, I complain about my aches & pains! Paul
  2. Hello Pete, I've been having some problems during my FSX flights that seem to occur most often after 1+ hours of flight. What happens is that I lose input to FSX of my stick, rudder and throttle controls ( Saitek X-45 ). The stick/throttle buttons still work but the axis inputs are gone. I can control throttle, etc with keyboard commands. One symptom that the problem has occured is the existance of multiple menu entries for FSUIPC4, usually 2, sometimes 3, where only the last entry is clickable. I can open FSUIPC, make changes, etc but nothing restores my controls. Re-loading the flight from the drop-down menu does not cure the problem nor does selecting a different aircraft. I must exit flight and FSX and restart. I was using FSUIPC4 4.06 and last evening I updated to 4.065. The problem reoccurs with that version also. I have a registered version, BTW. FSX has "permission" to access the local net and internet via my firewall ( ZoneAlarm ) and the problem does not occur on every flight. Last night I noticed a period of 3-4 seconds when my cursor movement ceased, indicating something was "hanging" and after that I saw that my controls were gone. I then opened a new FSUIPC log, preserving the previous log that covers the flight from start until just after the glitch. Main memory and video ram are OK. Usually around 1.3GB out of 2 GB and 330MB out of 512MB being used. It's obvious that this has something to do with Simconnect and I have noted your mention of problems related to that FSX function. The log indicates that comms with SimConnect were lost 4 times and restored. What is curious is the "menu entry added" events which are noted 5 times. What I saw was 2 FSUIPC menu entries in this case. I'm wondering if something caused SimConnect to remove the prior entry instances in 3 cases but not in the last 2, resulting in the double entry and that this might somehow have contributed to the loss of controls. Anyhow, I'd like to resolve this issue and if you have any suggestions as to what I might do to assist in tracking down the culprit, just let me know. Below is the not-to-lenghthy log file. Regards, Paul P.S. - I originally became aware of the need for local net access when I shut had my firewall "lock" the access when I noticed activity when running FSX some time ago. It was then that I first noticed a loss of controls. I then checked the net for info and saw your comments on the SimConnect issue and have not "locked" my firewall since :) So, I at least know how I CAN cause the problem, if this might help in doing sometroubleshooting, without waiting for 1-2 hours in-flight. ---------------------------------------------- ********* FSUIPC4, Version 4.065 by Pete Dowson ********* User Name="xxxxxxxxx" User Addr="xxxxxxxxxxx" FSUIPC Key is provided WIDEFS not user registered, or expired Running inside FSX Module base=61000000 LogOptions=00000001 DebugStatus=15 391 System time = 21:38:56 406 FLT UNC path = "\\BOHEMIA\Cerna Hora\Documents and Settings\GB\My Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\" 406 FS UNC path = "K:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\" 2703 SimConnect_Open succeeded: proceeding to initialise interface! 27656 Running in "Microsoft Flight Simulator X", Version: 10.0.60905.0 (SimConnect: 2.0.60905.0) 139187 SimStart Event: Initialising SimConnect data requests 139187 FSUIPC Menu entry added 139609 C:\Documents and Settings\GB\Application Data\Microsoft\FSX\Previous flight.FLT 139609 C:\Documents and Settings\GB\My Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\IFR Schiphol to Tempelhof.PLN 139609 K:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\JBK Douglas DC6\dc6.AIR 139641 C:\Documents and Settings\GB\My Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\IFR Schiphol to Tempelhof.PLN 139672 System time = 21:41:16, FSX time = 03:39:20 (02:39Z) 139906 Aircraft="JBK Douglas DC-6 UAL" 140641 Advanced Weather Interface Enabled 7183547 **** No SimConnect events or states being received!
