  1. Pete Hope you had a wonderful vacation, it's great to have your continuing support Just wanted to say thank you for the fix. i use Run and Runif a lot, it's a real timesaver when starting or ending a sim session. I have Installed and briefly tested version 5.12 ---- [Programs] RunIF is working normally for me best wishes Kevin
  2. Autosave not auto-deleting

  3. Pete that makes sense - seems MS are in no hurry to correct the version number I can confirm the windows 8.1 details are HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion "SystemRoot"="C:\\WINDOWS" "SoftwareType"="System" "InstallDate"=dword:55bccf83 "CurrentVersion"="6.3" "CurrentBuild"="9600" "RegisteredOrganization"="" "CurrentType"="Multiprocessor Free" "InstallationType"="Client" "EditionID"="Core" "ProductName"="Windows 8.1" Kevin

  5. Problems with Windows 10 Autosave: The Answers!

    Pete I think I have found the cause of the autosaves not deleting in FSX-SE When I installed the PMDG aircraft I think the installer created a flight sim folder called Flight Simulator X - Steam Edition Files in c:\users\........\documents If you have a standalone install of FSX steam edition it uses the standard FSX folder Flight Simulator X Files. when I looked back at the FSUIPC log I posted it shows 15 System time = 21/09/2015 09:40:38 15 FLT UNC path = "\\HOMESIMPC\Documents\Flight Simulator X - Steam Edition Files\" as my FSX SE is standalone I deleted the folder Flight Simulator X - Steam Edition Files after moving the tutorial flight files to the folder - Flight Simulator X Files Ran FSX after disabling the additional AlsoManage entries I added to the FSUIPC.ini file and the autosaves update correctly with the delete/overwrites working perfectly here is the latest FSUIPC log entry 0 System time = 22/09/2015 21:28:54 0 FLT UNC path = "\\HOMESIMPC\Documents\Flight Simulator X I don't know how I missed this previously - I guess I was fixated on the problem rather than the cause ..... lol regards Kevin ​
  6. Hi Pete I have amended my PC settings and used FSUIPC functions to eliminate the autosave issues under windows 10 and thought it might benefit others, subject to your approval For me the 2-3 second hesitation was caused by windows antimalware service (Windows Defender) using a lot PC CPU/Memory resource. Unfortunately if realtime protection is turned off manually it is automatically set to ON when the pc is next started. However, Defender's settings options allows the user to add exclusions for: specific folders / file types /processes and this was the fix I needed and it permanently stops Defender causing the sim to pause. If you have installed your own 3rd party antivirus/anti malware software check that windows defender "realtime protection" is OFF To access the settings screen open the win 10 action center and select all settings then Update and Security select windows defender select add an exclusion The only exclusions actually needed was process- adding the executable file for each sim, I was taking no chances and included folders & file types to be 100% certain defender does not quarantine/check any sim files In processes I added FSX.exe Prepar3d.exe In folders I added; c:/drive .... documents/folder names (where saved flight files are kept)for both sims main install folder for each sim In file types I added; FLT FSSAVE WX FLT.fmc FLT.sav FXML FXML.fmc FXML.sav The hesitation was reduced significantly to a micro-pause (sometimes none) in both sims. Next: non-deletion of autosave files After reading the previous posts I had not been aware of the option to manage PMDG saves so; For FSX-SE and prepar3d I followed the guide in FSUIPC documentation (thanks Pete) and added lines to the sim FSUIPC.ini file to cover the 737/777 from PMDG Your folder path will be different to mine. The short path did not work - I added the fullpath instead. Prepar3d [AutoSave] AlsoManage1=H:\P3dv25\PMDG\PMDG 737 NGX\PanelState\*.fxml.sav AlsoManage2=H:\P3dv25\PMDG\PMDG 737 NGX\PanelState\*.fxml.fmc AlsoManage3=H:\P3dv25\PMDG\PMDG 777X\PanelState\*.fxml.sav AlsoManage4=H:\P3dv25\PMDG\PMDG 777X\PanelState\*.fxml.fmc FSX-SE [AutoSave] AlsoManage1=J:\FSX Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\PMDG\PMDG 737 NGX\PanelState\*.FLT.sav AlsoManage2=J:\FSX Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\PMDG\PMDG 737 NGX\PanelState\*.FLT.fmc AlsoManage3=J:\FSX Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\PMDG\PMDG 777X\PanelState\*.flt.sav AlsoManage4=J:\FSX Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\PMDG\PMDG 777X\PanelState\*.flt.fmc To avoid the Autosaves accumulating out of control in FSX-SE I added extra lines and found it worked well. Use your actual "user" name not %username% otherwise I don't think it works AlsoManage5=C:\Users\%username%\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\*.FLT AlsoManage6=C:\Users\%username%\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\*.FSSAVE AlsoManage7=C:\Users\%username%\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\*.WX It doesn't affect manual saves or the previous flight files generated by FSUIPC With prepar3d Autosaves do not accumulate out of control. I have no idea why only FSX is affected I recorded two short videos for FSX-SE to show this working. using basic default scenery and the other with FTX global and Active Sky next weather Autosave setting - 2 saves every 15 secs helps show this working.
