  1. The focus shift (always back to FSX, or back to FSC) should not be a problem. To me, flying on Ivao on line, it very often is. When connected with the communication app IvAp and I use text, the waypoint shift of FSC makes the focus shift from IvAp to FSC to FSX (I assume). What happens is that when writing text (when there is no live ATC or when communicating with a fellow pilot) focus suddenly shifts to FSX, my next key presses that should´ve been a part of the message in the comm window of IvAp becomes key presses in FSX. An R or shift r may change the simualtion rate, the w changes the view, the t activates transponder and so on. Anyone but me disturbed by this? Can the focus switch be avoided by a command or is an FSC-update with that option in settings possible, Volker??

  2. Thank you again. Yes, I have the Simmarket version. Regards, Tommy
  3. Thank you for fast answer. About update: I tried the update 9.7.5, but had problems with the distance arc descending and climbing. Maybe that is because I have not installed all updates in between. Going from 9.6.8 to 9.7.5 might be to large a step? I have 9.7 but that needs 9.6.9 before install which I don't have. And there is no install read me with the 9.7.5 update so I am unclear what is needed from earlier versions. Started the 9.7.5 exe install file to check for info but that stopped when it recognized an earlier version, and no hints about what should be done. Tommy
  4. Hell. Frankly I never changed those settings at all in neither version of the FSC. Now that I (this morning) uninstalled FSC10 and reinstalled 9.6 rev 8 I look in the Miscellanous settings and there "Distance Arc > TOC TOD LVL based on Altitude setting" is ticked. Never checked if that changed automatically when installing FSC10. To claryfie what happens in the installs after 9.6 rev 8: When starting a climb or descent the arc is misplaced farther away than the actual point of reaching the set altitude. When coming closer to the set altitude and the aircraft starts to level off the arc moves fast still farther away from the set altitude point and aircraft until it disappears out of the FSC application frame. However, I am happy with this older version and I don't know what I am missing in the latest. Thanks for your time.
  5. Hallo. When I descend in FSC 10 the distance arc shows beyond the actual FL that will be reached (shows a slower descent than the actual descent rate). I experienced the same thing with the 9.8 version of FSC, which made me go back and reinstall FSC 9.6 rev 8. This version showed the distance arc correctly. Now I took my chances with version 10. Can Volker explain this, and is there a way to fix it? I do'nt fly PMDG. Regards, Tommy Engman FSX-SE, FSC 10.0.5. FSCDB AMD FX4300 GeForce GTX660
  6. Thank you. Obviously it is not the program that causes my problem. What happens is that the arc shows beyond the target altitude/point and so I reach my target altitude earlier than the FSC distance arc visualizes. I suppose I will have to live with this or reinstall the earlier version that worked for me. Thanks again. Tommy
  7. Hi Volker. Well. IvAp doesn't steal focus. It get's focused if you click or write in in. What happens is that focus is stolen *from* IvAp by one or other applications that put FSX in focus. The only application that I have (and know of) that steals focus from FSX (on moving map, reaching waypoints, downloading data/weather) and *returning* it to FSX (and not back to IvAp) is FSC. It is also clear that if another application like IvAp or Word or a browser is used and in focus while flying, focus is stolen from these applications to FSC when reaching a waypoint etc. Then focus is returned to FSX, not to the application from which focus was stolen. It is documented that FSC steals focus from FSX and returns it after updating data or passing waypoints, but it is not documented that it steals focus from *other* applications if they are used while flying connected to FSC. But if this is something that you as developer of the great app FSC can't change I will have to live with the inconvience. FSC is so great in many other aspects. Regards, Tommy
  8. Hi Volker and everyone. I want to add that after months I came here to see if others were having the same problem as I. Apparently there are. My main concern is that as I fly with focus on FSX I need to correspond by text in IvAp (to explain intentions and report position etc) focus is frequently switched while writing in the IvAp window to FSX which means that buttons pressed for text turn to commands which in turn leads to "lighsts off", "engines off", "pause" and other crucial error commands. I run FSX Steam Edition on a single computer along with FSC and other apps like FSRealWX with Windows10 64 Pro. The problems occured without changing settings with the FSC but I have made all the upgrades provided by FSC. The issue is present wether I run Ivap internally or externally. I would like a program change of FSC so that the issue of IvAp writing doesn't switch to unwanted FSX commands if it is at all possible. My settings are "Move map instead of aircraft" and "Autodownload every three minutes (the focus swithcing occurs much more often, that is to say at every map move)". * FSX on Desktop with Windows 10 64 Pro. * FSUIPC4.9.6 * FSC 9.6 revision 8, 28 April 2017 on the same desktiop with Windows 10. * Navigraph subscription, AIRAC 17.08 Rev.1 * 3 monitors on desktop (FSC Flightplan on other monitor than FSX window.. * Using IvAp external on desktop. Regards, Tommy Engman
  9. Pete. As I mentioned I changed in the registry/deleted the post as stuarth suggested. The error occured while I still had the former/next latest FSUIPC version. However the error reoccured after I installed the latest version and the registry post was there after the installation. The entry in DLL.xml concerned triggering xmltools.dll. This I deleted. Perhaps that was the key. Regards, Tommy
  10. Hallo. I run FSX-SE, Windows 10 updated, FSUIPC4.dll version 4.966c registered. Suddenly yesterday I am met with this message (enclosed). If I answer Ja/Yes FSX closes. If I answer Nej/No FSX opens. I hope this is enough for you to find the reason, maybe also the solution. Regards, Tommy Engman FSUIPC4.log
  11. Thank you Pete. You have the FSUIPC.log file above. Here is the .ini file. I really dn't know how to provide the crash reports in the Event Viewer. But since I wrote that line I followed the instructions by stuarth and checked a recent dll.xml entry (although it is older than yesterday by a couple of weeks). Which operation that worked I don't know at the moment but it seems that my FSX-SE and FSUIPC4 work as they should. Thank you! FSUIPC4.ini FSUIPC4.log
  12. Hi. I try to save a new route segment. After "Save" of the segment (LSZH dep DEGES Z3 ETAGO) there is no new segment listed in the Open Segment dialog box. I can only see a segment from earlier (from another version of FSC) which also is displayed above in the right hand window. This is a segment from the same airport (transition Z1). What can I do to get the segment creator to work again? I have tried with other segments to no avail.

  13. Thanks. I just sent you five screen cuts.
  14. On the download page of the website I am urged to download FSC 9.7, but the links only tell of 9.6 upgrades. What am I missing?

    GPS Window has disappeared (answered)

    Hi and thanks. This was very helpful, the tip about the workaround. I had lost the GPSwindow during attempts to configure three monitors. If you have three separate screens with the Windows desktop spread all over and put the GPS window on one of the outer screens it is hopelessly lost if you go over to a one window configuration over three screens. Thanks to the workaround that problem was easily solved. Tommy
  16. When I flyh there are a number of NDB's that the NDB radio doesn't catch the signal from. When I check in FSC I find that the NDB's my radio doesn't catch are colored red with the right frequency attached, while those who are OK are green in color with the frequency attached. I can't find this mentioned in the FSC manual. Why the different colors - is this because current navdata have them but FSX not? And does anyone know how to fix the red non functioning NDB:s in FSX?

  17. Volker - I can't surprise you. Sometimes I have to pinch myself. The red NDB:s come from my "Find" command highlighted red from my settings.: Neither the MIKE MIQ NDB 426.00 nor the Nice/Cote d'Azur MUS 428.00 are picked up by my nav radio. So I wanted to check if they had the same frequencies as the charts. There's nothing wrong with them in FSC. And they are green as they should when not highlighted with the "Find" command. So even if this is not the forum for fixing FSX - do you have a clew to why these NDB:s don 't show in FSX nav radio (while others around are OK) and what can be done about it? Tommy
  18. Pete - I registered my version of FSUIPC a couple of years back and have updated now and then, not because I had problems but in hope the new version would work even better (how that even could be possible - I never indulged in much of the possibilities for customizing that the registering allows). For quite a while though my FSX DeLuxe SP2 has crashed when in an airport and I tried to change aircraft, or trying to move to another airport directly. For these changes to work I have had to leave the flight/airport and return to the start page of FSX - and change or choose from there. (Sometimes that entailed crashes as well, but mostly it worked.) My idea for a long time has been that a new aircraft caused this, or perhaps a freeware scenery, or maybe scenery enhancements (UTX or REX4). Or maybe even the new version of IvAp. Well. Removing these extras, and removing this or these aircraft hasn't helped. Not uninstalling and reinstalling AvAp either and not deleting and reinstalling FSUIPC. So I finally - today - tried to eliminate that one or two of the newer versions of FSUIPC was the culprit. In my case the version works without crashes in either case; changing aircraft or airport. The versions I have tried that don't work for me are 4.929 and 4.983c. If you are interested I will send all the logs you want (I mostly don't understand what they tell me or even where they all are). But at least this can be a comfort to others that have similar experiences, or at least it serves as a proof that an older might work very well.

  19. Hi. This is my setup: Windows8 Pro 64 / FSX De Luxe SP2 / FSC9.3.HF_1 Build 04-August-2013 / FSCDBM 9.3 NET Build 26-June-2013. I can't set the path for the Google Earth flightplan files: In the window "Save" there is a box to be ticked for "Google Earth". I have ticked it. In the window "Paths" there is no Google Earth in the Name column, and I can't save a path for Google Earth flightplans. (In the folder column these names are listed: FS Commander, Flight Simulator X, FSX Flight Plans, Squawk Box, IVAO Ivap v2, Radar Contact, FS Inn, Project Magenta, X-Plane and AS-Airbus X Ext, all with Folder paths. I have been meticulous in checking that there really is a googlearth.exe file in the library chosen. The googleearth.exe file is installed in C:/Program (86)/Google/GoogleEarth/client. Regards, Tommy
  20. Hi Volker. I have installed as an administrator as well as start the program as one. Now I also have read the document you advise. I have not installed FSC on my second hard disk, but in c:/microsoft games/fsc9. And it turns out that FSC saves the flightplan files in the flighplan folder c:/microsoft games/fsc9/flighplan/google. It seems that even though files are saved in the right place the folder path is not shown in the path window. And FSC does not find googlearth.exe in c:/program (86) where it is installed.

  21. Hi. Well, there is no save path for Google Earth and I get an error message every time I save a flight plan: "GoogleEarth.EXE in specified folder not found!" And there is no path specified in FSCommander Save screen, but there are paths for all other applications, as I mentioned earlier. And I can't save any Google flight plans. All the best, Tommy
  22. Hi Volker. Thanks for answering. Yes, you're certainly right about the conflict of Always on top and the GPS window on top. The problem arises after that. Of course I disengage the Always on top after having done the checking of the approach - how else would I get back to the aircraft and the flight? So it is when going back to the original state with the FSC main window NOT on top and having reset "Aircraft on map" again that this happens. And it doesn't get back to the original state. Regards, Tommy
  23. Strange: Planning, starting the flight, flying - everything smooth as silk with autoheading activated. But after having locked the FSC mainscreen (map/program window) "always on top" in order to look at the destination waypoints and checking the STAR and transition, the GPS window wants to hide, though still with autoheading activated. At first I see it halfway hiding behind the FSX window, then after Alt-tab to other windows disappearing altogether behind the FSC mainscreen. Should I switch to a .pfd-window to check maps the same thing happens: The GPS window disappears behind the FSC main screen. This does not happen if I don't click "Always on top". Only if I switch (ALT-tab) to the FSC main screen (map/program window) and minimize it, I get the GPS window in view - but still partly hidden behind the FSX window. I hope this is a bug that can be fixed with the next update of FSC. It is difficult to get to the GPS window for ILS activation ect. // I run FSC 9.2.2 build 15 March 2013 and FSC Database Manager 9.2 build 15 May 2012. In Windows 8.

  24. Some thoughts, after having run FSC 9.2.1 for a while: Alternate airports: It would be nice if it were possible to add an alternate airport manually by writing its ICAO code after the destination airport. It should be possible to add an alternate airport by first leftclick the destination so focus transferres there and then rightclick on the alternate airport for it to be inserted automatically after the destination without FSC reminding that it can't be inserted before the destination. It should be possible to add or delete a waypoint/VOR to a flightplan when in flight, without FSC switching to the first waypoint of the flight plan and make the aircraft turn around. (If you try to avoid this by desactivating AutoHdg and reactivate it after adding or deleting, you will lose your previous record of the flight and the GPS window returns to the first waypoint. Then the pilot must click through the waypoints to get back on track.) It should be possible to delete a STAR or transition when in flight, and insert another or to insert waypoints when ATC prompts you for another approach than you anticipated when taking off. Since ATC sometimes appears randomly when you are in a STAR it would be convenient to be able to manipulate the STAR arbitrarely - even inside a STAR. It is apparent that some of the SID:s and STARS of FSC are not absolutely true to the SIDs and STARs published by the aviation authorities, so it would be convenient to be able to add or change waypoints when needed. Maybe could it also be possible to create or rectifie and save SIDs and STARs? It should be possible to delete a waypoint of the flightplan by pressing the delete button (instead of first leftclick and then rightclick and then chose "delete"). Since I run FS and FSC on the same computer and on a single monitor it is annoying when FSC automatically switches to FS as soon as one clicks the screen. Alt-Tab should be enough. I know of the option "map always on top", but I think it would be more consistent with Windows that the window/application gets active by clicking the desired window or by Alt-Tab to the desired window. Maybe the option "map always on top" could be made work the other way: "Always switch to FS" it the pilot so desires. It would be easier to fly a holding created in FSC by the activated AutoHdg, just like the flightplan? Or is this to unreal? Many regards to you all and to Volker foremost. Tommy
  25. Hi Volker and others. The reason for insertion of alternate airport by writing ICAO code is that it's not so smooth the way FSC works now: The rightclick works when you have the map focus on the destination area. But this is not where focus is when you create your flightplan. As long as you can't insert the alternate airport unless you rightclick on the map it means moving to the destination without clicking on the destination airport. If the pilot knows the name of the alternate airport it could be written in the route box. OR if FSC allowed clicking the destination airport and then rightclick for the alternate airport without "You can't insert a waypoint after the destination" it would be okay. Now leftclicking the destination airport for focus also means that after the popup with "You cannot insert...", the map focus returns to the departure. To insert an alternate airport in FSC it seems that there are three options. 1. You'll have to zoom out, click on the area of the destination (but not on the destination), zoom in and rightclick the alternate airport. 2. Click on the last waypoint in the flightplan waypoint list and hope that this waypoint is close enough for the alternate airport to be seen so you can rightclick it. 3. Use the Find object functio if you know the ICAO codes for the airports in the vicinity of the destination. But it it were possible to leftclick destination airport in the waypoint list (to get map focus on the destination) and rightclick the alternate airport nearby without th FSC message "You cannot insert..." it would be okay. There is another improvement that I would appreciate. As FSC works now it seems that a series of waypoints cannot be inserted from rightclicking the map, because the highlighting of the waypoint after which you want to insert the series is turned of. This means leftclicking the waypoint you inserted to rightclick on the next, and so forth. I would like the rightclicked added waypoint to be highlighted so I directly can rightclick the next waypoint (in a RNAV approach for example) For the rest I accept your views on the matter. Regards!
