  1. Double-click the "Saitek Pro Flight Quadrant"... where do I find that? J
  2. Yeah, all yoke axis and buttons are working fine. Actually the quadrant with the USB connector is the one I got with the purchase of the yoke and quad. The one with the round connector is the one I ordered a couple years later because the mount on the first one broke. Ends up I fixed the mount on the first one (USB) (thanks superglue) and am now using that one without any problem. I've even gone so far as to do a system restore but the PC and FSUIPC still can't see it. I'll wiggle and jiggle some more and let you know. Thanks again, Paul J
  3. Will try wiggling and hitting it with my shoe and let you know what happens. Thanks for the suggestions. My system: Win Vista Ultimate, 64bit. Jeff
  4. Plugging in only the round connector into the yoke doesn't work either. Not recognized by Game controller or FSUIPC. Yoke USB is plugged into a powered hub. Frustrating... especially when I know I had it connected (both of them) before. J
  5. Just followed your instructions, Paul, and still nothing. Again, 2nd quadrant doesn't show up even in the Windows Game Controller window. No reaction in FSUIPC with 2nd quadrant. Wondering if there is something wrong with my connection to the yoke on the 2nd quadrant. As I said, I am getting the green light on both quadrants so the connection should be good. Jeff
  6. Hi, Pete. Don't know if this is an FSUIIPC problem or a Saitek problem. Have connected my second quadrant to the first using the round connector (don't remember the name). The light on the second quadrant comes on and also on the first. It is not, however, showing as connected in either the Windows Game Controller setup, FSUIPC or in fsuipc4.ini. Here's what the .ini files looks like. [JoyNames] AutoAssignLetters=No 2=Saitek Pro Flight Yoke 2.GUID={269DA5B0-18C3-11E0-8001-444553540000} 3=Saitek Pro Flight Quadrant 3.GUID={10B71790-2C2A-11E3-8001-444553540000} 1=Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals 1.GUID={FB92F770-18CD-11E0-8001-444553540000} I would assume that the system is connected because the light is on. Also I have plugged the first quadrant into a powered USB port. Suggestions? Jeff Even
  7. Thanks guys. Let me do some re-arranging and let you know what happens. Jeff
  8. After thinking I had all my axis, buttons, etc. programmed through FSUIPC when I go to program buttons on the quadrant after I select the button the device suddenly switch from "4" to "3". This happens on all buttons 1-6. Deleted my FSUIPC4.ini file and let it reinstall with no "aircraft specific" loaded. I then began to re-program all the buttons and... same thing. No doubt I am screwing something up, Pete, but ask if you would take a look at my .ini file and see where I'm going wrong.

  9. Working fine now, Pete. As always, thanks for the help. Best, Jeff
  10. I have both the basic quadrant and the addon that plugs into the basic one. Actually the bracket on the basic quadrant broke and I bought the addon unit. I have been using the addon unit ALONE for several months and it worked fine. Just repaired the basic one and am trying to use them both.. All are apparently plugged in correctly as the green light is on on both units. The second unit (the original basic unit) does not show up at all in FSUIPC (paid version) and nothing registers when I move the axis levers. Confusing, I know. Puzzled... Would appreciate any help you can give. Jeff Even Rocklin, CA, USA
  11. Thanks, Pete. The problem appears to be solved by, as you said, removing ALL FS axes and buttons. I thought that by un-checking "enable controllers" it would override them but apparently not. Also, you were right about not having calibrated the brakes. Actually all I had to do was check "rev" in the calibration section and all appears to be working. Parking brake no longer comes on when using toe brakes. Thanks again, Pete. In my opinion FSUIPC is 'THE' most important and functional program in the entire FS world. Best and Happy New Year. Jeff

  13. After around 20 years of simming I finally decided to use FSUIPC for my controls with my Saitek Quadrant, Yoke and Pedals. Have always had FSUIPC but never used it for controls. Seems I have just about everything set up but am having trouble with toe brakes, rudder and parking brake. Have tried all kinds of combinations but still, whenever I'm taxiing or even rolling for takeoff suddenly either the left or right toe brake will activate and/or the parking brake will set. To release the parking brake I have to manually set it and then unset it again. Toe brakes don't work at all. I'm sure I'm really screwing something up but don't know where.

  14. If all else fails there's always the computer "lifeboat". System restore fixed everything. Thanks, Pete Jeff
  15. The message I get is the first one you showed... There seems to be duplicate copies of FSUIPC installed, or another running still in memory! Please remove older copies! Never simply rename modules, move them OUT of the Modules folder! If there are no duplicates please use Task Manager to check that the previous run has not left an FS process running As I said, I can't find any other copies, open or otherwise, on my system. Have done several cold restarts and still nothing. Will not allow me to continue opening FSX. Jeff
  16. Hopefully posting in the proper thread this time. Yesterday I updated my paid version of FSUIPC and started getting a message on opening FSX that there was a duplicate running. This is while installing FSUIPC4 4.944. Have run task manager and found no open instances. Tried deleting all FSUIPC stuff out of my modules folder and that didn't work. The error message doesn't complete. It ends by saying "if there are no duplicates please use task manager to check that the..." and ends with "the".

  17. Hi, Peter. Been an FSIUPC user for many years. Thanks. Problem is suddenly the same as the poster above stated... get error message saying duplicate FSIUPC found. Followed all your instructions above including the deinstallation and reinstallation and still no joy. Have done a cold restart on PC (many times) and still no joy. Search finds nothing left in memory. Have scanned forum but none of the solutions suggested work. Would appreciate any help you can give. Jeff Even Rocklin, CA, USA
  18. My bad. Works just fine now. Makes sense that I was using "ideal" conditions, i.e. runway length, cargo, etc. Thanks for the quick response. Love the tool. Regards, Jeff
  19. Here is my latest flight. Planned with PFPX. Thanks for the help! Jeff
  20. My only problem is that when I calculate for the 777-300 I ALWAYS get an SEL of 70. What am I doing wrong. Happens no matter what the OAT or QNH is. Jeff Even Rocklin, CA, USA
  21. Thanks for the quick reply, Volker. Still can't get it to work. If I just go ahead and purchase the FSC9 should I be okay? Jeff
  22. The following is submitted as required: 1. FSX 2. FSUIPC 4.703 3. FSC DB 8.4.0.0 Build 11.09.08 4. Aerosoft Version F 5. Vista 64 I have enjoyed FSC for a long time and never had any problems but suddenly when I start FSC I get a popup as follows: "Unable to connect to Flight Simulator Msg#2: Cannot link to FSUIPC or WideClient" Have reinstalled FSUIPC and run DB.exe again all to no avail. Please advise. Best, Jeff Even Rocklin, Ca, USA
  23. Tried 80%, 60%, 30% and still have the problem. Hope you're not telling me that I have to fly with only 5% AI from now on with MyTrafficX. Please let me know the work-around for this problem. Jeff
  24. Wow! That worked! Both FSFK and RC work fine. I guess I just experiment as to how high I can set the slider for AI aircraft, eh? Thanks so much. Let me know if you have any other solutions. Jeff
  25. Have been using and enjoying FSFK for some time now and have had no problems. Recently added MyTraffic X Professional and am now getting frustrated. I am creating a flightplan (as before) using FlightSim Commander. When I open FSX I load the plan (as before) and hit "fly now". The aircraft initializes at the correct gate at the correct airport (as before). Then I open FSFK and hit "new flight"... Instead of FSFK initializing the new flight, I get an error message that says "Flight simulator not correctly initialized. Please start a flight plan." What am I doing wrong?? I'm doing everything just as before. The new aircraft from MyTrafficX are showing up but FSFK won't work. Also, when I open Radar Contact it immediately moves the aircraft several yards from where it had been. Thanks in advance. Jeff Even Rocklin, CA, USA
