  1. Hey Mike, I have it all working now. Thanks so much for your input/guidance, it was invaluable. John
  2. Hi, I just have had a hell of a time making time to work on it. Hopefully I can get to it Tuesday or Wednesday. It is high on my list but I just keep falling behind on things unrelated to the sim. I appreciate your interest and I will be sure to post here the minute I get to it and let you know how it goes. Thanks again, John
  3. I am a bit confused. I have read this entire forum with it's twists and turns for some people (including me) having difficulty figuring out the proper install procedure. I upgraded a lot of my hardware, reformatted my SSD, Installed P3D V3.1 and it is all working perfectly. I downloaded MTX 6.0 from Simmarket. I downloaded the latest beta. Now I am not sure about the install procedure for MTX to get to 6.0a from the ground up. Do I install 6.0, make the necessary entry for MTX in Prepar3D.cfg then use the latest beta in the same folder as the MTX install and that gets me to 6.0a? Thanks for any input and Merry Christmas to all. John
  4. Hi Mike, My apologies for being late in getting back to you. I had completely forgotten where I got MTX from and you jogged my memory. I went to SimMarket and sure enough there it was for me to download. I downloaded MTX 6.0 (the only one listed), so I presume I unzip that and then use the beta installer for P3D V3.x? I just installed P3D V3.1 today and apparently some scenery library file(s) were causing some problems that I did not have in P3D 3.0, 3.1 was crashing with "Not Responding" and it took some detective work to find the entries causing probems (still not sure exactly which one(s) are the problem, more work to do). Anyway I think I have a handle on the entries causing problems there. Thanks again for jogging my memory. John
  5. Hi Burkhard, Please help me out. I originally purchased MTX back in 2009 when it was V 5. I am not certain if I am using version 6 or not. According to my notes I had it working fine with P3D V2.5 and I "THINK" I updated to 6.0 but not sure. Things really got away from me when my Wife became ill with dementia a couple of years ago and required my full time care. She has now passed away and I have much more time for the sims. I updated to P3D V3 recently. I have a folder called MyTraffic that I am pretty sure worked fine in P3D V2.5 with the necessary entries in Prepar3d.cfg. I had MyTraffic in \Simobjects. Now I want to get back up to speed but I am totally unsure if I have MTX 6.x or not or the proper installer. How can I get up to date with the proper installer, communicator etc. for P3D V3? I have read the forums but am pretty confused as to where I am on things. Thanks very much for your guidance and help.
  6. I forgot to mention that I had administrative/drive ownership problems also. Suddenly some programs could not write to drive C or I could not copy a file to drive C etc. after the problem with Tower.exe/MSE ocurred. Apparently when MSE sees the false positive on Tower.exe it causes some other problems such as loss of drive/file ownership to occur. The way to fix the problem is: 1. Do the procedure as Kevin states to turn off MSE, reinstall Tower, set MSE to ignore Tower.exe, re-enable MSE and reboot. 2. If you run into the administrative/ownership problems, one of the two links/procedures below should fix the problem, don't forget to reboot after applying the fix(es). http://www.techfleece.com/2011/05/15/how-to-take-ownership-of-files-or-folders-or-an-entire-hard-drive/
  7. I had the same problem today. Just came out of nowhere. I did as Kevin did and all is well now, thanks for the detective work Kevin. In using MSE for many years this is the first time I have run into a false positive.
  8. I suggest adding after step 11 to move the MyTraffic entry down to just above propeller objects. Excellent tutorial.
  9. Hi Burkhard I am just lost!! 5.4 worked perfectly in my P3D 2.5 installation. I purchased MT 6.0 over the weekend and installed it (after removing 5.4). I show no movement by AI A/C at any airport. I have attached the simobject.cfg file, scenery.cfg, prepar3d.cfg as well as screenshots. Sometimes when I run P3D no AI A/C are shown, sometimes many AI A/C are shown at the terminals but no A/C ever moves. An overhead screenshot attached shows many AI A/C at KPHX but none of them ever move even though I have waited 30 minutes for an A/C to move. In the communicator I used "Select Schedules", Spring 2015, three batch files ran and completed. I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong. Thanks for any help.

  10. 4.923 working great here. Thanks very much for your hard work Pete, we all appreciate it.
  11. Did you read posts 15 thru 20?? You should be able to get it going no problem. Give us some specifics and maybe we can help.
  12. Hey Andy, You got it!!! Works fine now, I should have thought of the key file (getting old and dumb, that's why we need bright guys like you around). Thanks again John
  13. Does not work for me. I have a registered copy of FSUIPC 4921f and have been using FSUIPC in 1.4 for a long time with no problems. I ran the full FSUIPC installation program, entered my registration codes for FSUIPC and WideFS. It detected my P3D 1.4 installation and the V2 installation. It is working fine in P3D 1.4. I, like others am not able to get the FSUIPC menu to come up when clicking on FSUIPC on the P3D V2 Addons menu. I tried renaming the SimConnectP3D2.dll in the P3D V2 modules folder as described above. The FSUIPC menu does indeed come up however it is indicating that I have an unregistered copy. Am I missing something??
