  1. Will do Pete. At this point, it's only a 27 second increase in load time over "fastlaunch" so it's not a show stopper. Thanx for your help, and John's Vic
  2. Well, I've narrowed it down with some success Replacing instdir and setting admin run on FSUIPC7, TIR and the msfs.bat file did not work. Setting flightsimulator.exe run as admin - same ctd so - restored and took ownership of exe.xml, FSUIPC7 and TIR - run as was set on both. Set run as on flightsimulator,exe started program from the MS Flightsimulator desktop shortcut - worked perfectly Tried it from the msfs.bat file with instdir intact - ctd set up a shortcut with just the fastlaunch cmdline entry - ctd run flightsim shortcut again - worked So it see
  3. I'll give that a shot tonight. Thanx John! Vic
  4. I'll keep tinkering on and off but no joy so far. MSFS set as admin - shortly after initial screens - CTD - no entry in event viewer. Tried running it directly from the msfs icon - same. Didn't try it w/o FSUIPC entry in exe.xml file - will have time tomorrow. Adding TrackIR to exe.xml - wouldn't load with FSUIPC7.exe set as admin - it doesn't load with MSFS - no errors - just doesn't start FSUIPC on a lark, I added a trackir entry to the msfs.bat file - loads perfectly along with FSUIPC - only issue is I have to manually end it. in case I didn't mention it - it's a M
  5. I'll also remove everything from the community folder in case some add on is affecting the loading. I looked at the event viewer but no relevant entries. I'll play a bit, if all else fails I'll throw TIR in the exe.xml file - probably the easiest solution. I'm just curious as to why the permissions conflict. Thanx for the help - Vic
  6. ok, thanx John. I'll play around with it. If it's working for you then it's something in my configuration. I'll try to hunt it down. Vic
  7. Hmmm - ok this is with 7.04 on w10 pro if I set run as admin in compatibility for FSUIPC7.EXE - msfs loads perfectly but FSUIPC7 is not loaded if I set flightsimulator.exe to run as admin in compatibility - there's a flash when FSUIPC7 tries to load and then sim CTD if I remove run as admin from both - FSUIPC7 starts and I get 740 error on TrackIR.
  8. Thanx guys - I'll play around with it. I was unaware that 7.04 used the exe.xml. Vic
  9. In my cfg file I have these two entries: Run1=CLOSE,"E:\FS-ATC-Chatter\FS-ATC-Chatter.exe" Run2=CLOSE,"E:\NaturalPoint\TrackIR5\TrackIR5.exe" I have both properties set to run as admin In 7.02 - all is good in 7.04 I get error 740 on the TrackIR entry. I run the fsuipc batch file as admin and do it the same all the time. Uninstalled 7.04 and switched back - no errors. Reinstalled 7.04 - error is back. Not the end of the world but is there something I am missing here? Thanx, Vic
  10. Thanx Pete! I had forgotten about that, of course, that's what I did way back when. ANOTHER senior moment - they are coming faster and faster.......... Thanx again! Vic
  11. Not a problem but curious. In V6 I had many profiles. They were in the Profiles folder with the a/c l;isting in the FSUIPC.INI file. Setting up profiles from scratch in v7 I see the profiles and the a/c list are contained within the INI file. Is this by design or have I forgotten about a setting to make the profilers external. Thanx, Vic
  12. Tried again today setting up the Honeycomb yoke and all went well. Thanx Vic
  13. Thanx Pete - In all my going back and forth I must have had FSUIPC running when I deleted the ini file. Vic
  14. Turns out the stick was dying. All works well with the throttle alone but the stick created issues and now it will not even power up. Ran checks on USB ports - all ok - stick is dead. Rarely use the stick, mainly use the throttle as a switch panel so no big deal other than losing a day chasing down the problem. Sorry for the false alarm - FSUIPC 6 and 7 humming along nicely. Now I just need to reconfigure everything for the Alpha Yoke and in a month the Bravo quadrant. Thanx again Pete! sort of a related issue question - how do I start fresh with NO profiles and no
  15. well, I know what's happening but not why. I looked closely at the GUID's and it seems the saitek x55 throttle and stick messes with the assignments. if I disconnect the x55 - all is assigned as expected, plug them in and it's a mash up. Same action in FSUIPC7 btw - The Alpha and the Saitek don't like to coexist on MY system. Has anyone reported a similar issue? Thanx, Vic
