  1. Hi Volker Thank you. I know the procedure, I was not familiar with the terminology. It was the "not permissible" bit that disturbed me most. Who doesn't permit it? I asked myself. Am I breaching terms of purchase? I worried. I'll look further at the folder/drive sharing aspect of the lengthy "warning" comment. Incidentally, I have solved the linkage problem - firewalls were on. Regards Frank
  2. Hi Volcker Sorry. I just don't understand what "mounted and shared" means. regards Frank
  3. Hi Volcker I have recently bought JetMax737 to add some more reality to my simulating. At my age (81) you'd think I'd know better. But putting it all together and overcoming various problems has been fun, and the result is very satisfying. In the process, my computer builder re-installed the BIOS, Windows and FSX software leaving me to get everything else installed, not least the invaluable FS Commander. I am using iFly 737 CBE. FSUIPC is version 4.929 WideFS is version 6.999 FSC is the downloaded version 9.5 and DbManager is the same - installed on my 2nd computer. My AIRAC provider is Navigraph. and the O/S is Win7-64 When I try to update using the DbManager I get "Warning!!! You have mounted & shared the folder in which the Flight Simulator is located. etc etc" What does this mean? I have never seen such a message before, and I have been using your great utility for many years. It does give me the option of proceeding but at some risk that data may not be complete. How do I overcome it? As you can see above, I use WideFS to link my 2nd computer to my "flying" computer, but so far I am unable to get WideFS to link so I can't see if any airfields are incorrect. A complication might be that I have FSX also on the 2nd computer, where I do all my other flying, notably low & slow. However, the DbManager does allow me to point to the FSX on my main computer. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Best regards Frank
  4. Thanks Pete. I guessed that would be the case, but it was worth asking. Regards Frank
  5. Ageing eyes and higher resolutions are making it harder for me to read the relatively small display. Is there any way of making it larger?
  6. Hi Michael FSC is reading another AFD. For example, I use UK2000 Xtreme APs. When I recently installed all my stuff into a new PC I had that problem. Two things cause it: 1) There may be more than one AFD for the airport you are using. 2) FSC is reading the wrong one. I found out from Volker Heine, sometime ago that the location of the UK2000 file is wrongly written in the scenery.cfg. I had to go through and change all of the last lines. "F:/FSX" needed to be deleted in my case. Do you have AFX? With that you can find APs with duplicate AFD files. Delete all but the one you want, BUT never remove the Stock file. If you open an airport in the FSC window, it will show the name of the file it is reading. Hope this helps. Frank
  7. Hi Volker All is well now. My friend mapped to the hidden UNC drive paths from the FSC PC to the FSX PC. I could never have done that. I'm not sure I even understand it :cry: . Regards Frank
  8. Just to say that I still haven't been able to get FSC going. A good friend, who is more skilled with computers than I, is helping. He is also an FS enthusiast and builds our PCs. My problem could be that the 'demoted' PC was the client in the previous setup, and I wish to keep FSX on it. But it has to now serve the new Main FSX computer. They are networked, of course, and I have full FSUIPC4 & WideFS, so that link should be no problem. I will feed back when we have got it running again. Frank
  9. Hi Volcker That "About" and "Register" is ringing bells - muffled ones. Thanks for the reminder, and the offer of further direct help. I may need it :huh: and - Thanks Otto. I don't have the boxed version. It is a download, and I have the zip file safely stored on my NAS. I read and read, but didn't spot the About/register thing. I believe that will solve it. I will try later and report back. Best regards to you both Frank
  10. Hi Volcker I have just taken delivery of a new PC and am trying to install FSC. I thought I had kept all the necessary information, but after several hours of trying and thinking and trying again I cannot get it installed. SimMarket has details of my purchases: V8 in 2007 and V9 upgrade in January 2010. I also have my new key number for V9. Then I am stuck. I seem to be only able to install the trial version and cannot find a way to register my key. I am sorry to trouble you, but I would value your guidance. I put it down to old age (80 next month) and wonder if it's time to give all this up. My 2nd PC is uses Vista, and my new one is on W7. Many thanks Frank
  11. Hi Pete I have installed 4.85. Thank you for the pointer (Ian -Thanks to you too). The complex PMDG does seem to be the problem. I did as you suggested and restored the Ultralight at Friday Harbour as the default. All the PFC units work in that start up. Also I was able to close without having two bites at the cherry. The 737NGX seems to have been the cause. Now I know a bit more about these drivers, I may be able to discover how best to run the 737. I rarely look at fps (since the advent of FSX). I have had no difficulty in flying the 737, but will be watching fps closer in future.

  12. Hi Pete I have now installed version 4.85 and have made the INI amendments and tried another FSX start. I normally start in Full Screen mode.

  13. Hi Pete First re 4.85. It isn't showing in Schiratti.com. Where can I get it? Regards Frank
  14. Thanks for that rapid reponse, Pete. The digital signatories are there, and show as simFlightGmbH timestamped 11/2/2012. FSUIPC4 shows the same name and a date of 17/7/2012.

  15. Hi Pete I have used the full FSUIPC and PFC software for over 10 years. Both have always been indispensable and reliable. My PFC equipment is - Single Professional Console (non USB); Avionics; and rudder pedals. My current software versions are FSUIPC4 4.84 and PFCFSX.dll 4.40 A recent change of unit positions, involving no new hardware and no software changes, has thrown up a strange problem. PFC has disappeared from the FSX Add-ons dropdown menu. The latest PFCFSX.dll remained in the Modules folder. I have tried changing that, but the fault remains. Initially I suspected a faulty cable, but X-Plane "sees" these units and continues to work properly. I think this eliminates any hardware fault. I now suspect a file corruption somewhere, but where? Do you have any ideas? I haven't tried a re-install of FSUIPC yet. Best regards Frank
