    is on the list for implementation in FSUIPC5 during 2019. I can't promise a timescale. At 75 I am retiring from FSUIPC5 development and my son John will be taking over.

    It may be ungrateful, but I still want to inform you again whether this (long expected) option will be included in an upcoming version of FSUIPC? 🙂

  2. Well, it is and remains a strange story. Except for the 'service panel' Pokey card everything works fine. Fortunately there are no important functions connected to this card that have to be controlled by FSUIPC and I can continue for the time being.
    I also wish Sergio a lot of strength in solving his problem.
    I will continue to follow this conversation but I have now received sufficient assistance.

    Thanks for your help Pete! 👍

    All of the files show all your devices correctly recognised and assigned unique IDs 0-7, with the Service Panel as ID 5.  Its details show:

    Btns=32, POVs=(0, 0, 0, 0), Cal=x00000000, Max=R0,U4095,V4095,X4095,Y4095,Z4095

    the same as the other PoKeys panels. So it certainly looks as if it all should work.

    Yes, I would think so too, but the pokeyscard called 'service panel' doesn't work like the other cards do. The card is recognized by P3d, but I cannot assign buttons. Very strange.

    I see you don't have any buttons or axes assigned in FSUIPC, but there are Lua files relating to each of the named Pokeys cards, plus:


    Odd that there are only 4 of these. I don't know what function they perform,  but something's a bit asymmetric about it. Shouldn't there be 5?

    These are network cards that I use on the overhead and do not participate in programming within FSUIPC. The various functions are programmed with LUA.

    Sorry, but i really know nothing about "PoKeys".

    They are actually just like Leo Bodnar cards, but more extensive. You can determine yourself which connection is input or output and there are more options for connecting LEDs and servos, for example. Let's say an all-in-one card.

    Kind regards,

  4. Hi Pete,
    Sorry it took me so long to provide you with the information you need. First I had to sort things out here at home before I got back to the sim. My apologies again.
    After reading the other comments, I've been cleaning up the registry clutter.

    2. Now use the Windows Device Manager or Settings and remove all those devices. If the option to remove their drivers too, agree and let it happen. You may need to repeat this several times for the multiple entries looking the same.

    3. Unplug all those USB devices.

    4. Reboot the PC.

    5. Start the sim, then when it is all ready, plug the devices back in,  one at a time, leaving the Simple Solutions ones till last, and checking access each time in FSUIPC.  

    This did not go smoothly and took quite some time. Fortunately, it did improve because a number of errors were fixed.

    Info about my system:
    I did a clean install of Windows 10 and then installed P3d 4.5 and FSUIPC.
    The hardware I use consists of; Saitek Yoke, USB throttle and rudder pedal. I also use five USB PoKeys cards to operate various push buttons and switches. I have these PoKeys, by means of given the software, a name and PID to better identify them.
    Glareshield - AP1; PID = 1002
    Glareshield - AP2; PID = 1003
    Pedestal; PID = 1004
    Service panel; PID = 1005
    CptSidePanel; PID = 1006

    All cards are recognized by windows. P3d also recognizes the cards and shows them in the menu 'options \ controls'. Here I can also assign buttons to certain functions except for the 'Service panel' card. This card is recognized, but no buttons can be assigned. This also applies to assigning buttons in FSUIPC. (I get that, because if it doesn't work in P3d, it doesn't work in FSUIPC either, right?)

    I hope I have given you enough information with this. If this is not the case, I would like to send you more.

    As a thank you for your commitment and help with this annoying problem. I really appreciate this!

  5. After a computer upgrade and a new installation of P3d 4.5 and FSUIPC 5.157, not all USB controller cards are recognized by FSUIPC.
    Most cards do exist in the .INI file and the joystick.csv file but cannot be programmed in FSUIPC.
    When I go to the key assignment of P3d, I can set the buttons but this does not want in FSUIPC. The USB cards are therefore recognized by P3d but not by FSUIPC. Am I doing something wrong or is there something wrong with the hardware / software?

    I hope you can help me.

    Thanks in advanced.

  6. By creating a 'profile' you can assign buttons and switches etc. to a specific (group of) plane(s). So  I tried to create a [programs] section in the specific profile.ini file but the programs that I declare in that section do not load or execute.

    If I declare these programs in the [programs] section in the main ini-file than they are loading or executing just fine. Is it possible to make a [programs] section in a specific profile ini-file so that I can run specific programs for a specific profile?

    I hope someone can help me with this

  7. Hello,

    I'am using P3d v4.3 and I want to use PoKeys cards to build my cockpit. After reading the posts in the forum about the problems with luacom.dll I still can't solve the problem with connecting to this  luacom.dll. Everytime I start the lua it comes with an ERROR saying that it is not a valid Win32 application.

    What can I do to resolve this problem? Can anyone help me?

    Please keep in mind that I'am not a programmer but with a little help from my friends I think that we can solve this problem


    Thanks in advanced.
