  1. Fair enough Pete, definitely looks like it is a VAFS issue as you say. I have been over on their forums and even had a Teamviewer session with the developer of the VAFS software all to no avail, looks like this is one issue where there may be no answer! Thanks for taking the time to help me out all the same.
  2. It is from the FSUIPC4 configuration file (FSUIPC4.ini) within the modules folder in the FSX directory. File is dated today 11 July. The VAFS program itself runs fine and initially communicates well with FSX via FSUIPC but just prior to the flight tracking portion of VAFS it loses the ability to read my geographical location in game.
  3. Hi Pete, thanks for fielding my question.. I am particularly grateful as it is only tangentially related to FSUIPC. Below is the log: ********* FSUIPC4, Version 4.827 by Pete Dowson ********* User Name="Phillip S" User Addr="*****@gmail.com" FSUIPC4 Key is provided WIDEFS7 not user registered, or expired Running inside FSX on Windows 7 Module base=61000000 172 System time = 11/07/2012 17:32:33 172 FLT path = "C:\Users\Phil\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\" 718 Trying to connect to SimConnect Acc/SP2 Oct07 ... 780 FS path = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\" 1264 LogOptions=00000000 00000001 1264 Wind smoothing fix is fully installed 1264 G3D.DLL fix attempt installed ok 1264 SimConnect_Open succeeded: waiting to check version okay 1264 Trying to use SimConnect Acc/SP2 Oct07 11014 Running in "Microsoft Flight Simulator X", Version: 10.0.61637.0 (SimConnect: 10.0.61259.0) 11014 Initialising SimConnect data requests now 11014 FSUIPC Menu entry added 11061 C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\FLIGHTS\OTHER\FLTSIM.FLT 11061 C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\Aircreation_582SL\Aircreation_582SL.AIR 58329 C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\C208B\Cessna208B.AIR 83601 Weather Mode now = Real World 489999 Sim stopped: average frame rate for last 325 secs = 19.5 fps 619433 Sim stopped: average frame rate for last 126 secs = 11.1 fps 637374 System time = 11/07/2012 17:43:10 637374 *** FSUIPC log file being closed Average frame rate for running time of 457 secs = 17.1 fps G3D fix: Passes 18736, Null pointers 0, Bad pointers 0, Separate instances 0 Memory managed: 4 Allocs, 4 Freed ********* FSUIPC Log file closed *********** This is probably a dumb question, but is there a place to go to tell FSUIPC to run as administrator separate from telling FSX to run as administrator? I dont see an exe file for FSUIPC so I dont know where I would set that. Also, found this at the bottom of the "Configurations Settings" file: [Window.VAFS Message:] Docked=322, 3273, 3536, 722 I can't make heads or tails of that but it looked VAFS-related
  4. Hi All, I am having a rough time trying to get VAFS5 to read my location in FSX. The VAFS program reads that FSX is turned on and initially sees my correct geographic location but somehow the link between VAFS-Simconnect-FSX is broken in the preflight screen. I have tinkered with my Norton and tried everything with no firewall on etc. but to no avail. Weirdly enough, VAFS worked randomly for me 3 days ago but I did nothing different. I have no idea if VAFS's problem with discerning my location at the departure airport is related to FSUIPC or the program itself.. I do not know even where to begin in diagnosing and fixing Simconnect so I have turned to this forum hopeful for an answer. I have 3 Simconnect files that I can see.. FSUIPC log says it can see the SP2 Simconnect.. I think that is all proper but unsure. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. I should mention that i have had no issues with other 3rd party programs.. i.e. Air Hauler which is able to plot my location without issue. Also using MyTraffic X with no issues noted. Phil using Windows 7 with FSX Gold + Acceleration installed Registered copy of FSUIPC v 4.827 I show 3 separate Simconnect folders installed in my windows directory.. not sure if that is supposed to be the case or not but I believe it corresponds to my upgrading from gold to acceleration judging from the date modified info. Problem is described in more detail in the thread below: http://www.myvafinan...-flight-screen/
