Hi I'm having trouble locating the Add On int he menu bar for access to FSUIPC, I have read the pinned comments from Pete and infact it looks as though I have the problem he has reported, however I'm not clear as to what to do as it says to install SimConnect manually.and goes on to quote
"You'll find all the versions of SimConnect in the P3D "redist" folders. Try the Simconnect.msi from the folder redist\Interface\FSX-SP2-XPACK, for example."
I did find a simconnect.msi file in the directory he pointed to (in the ESPv1 folder ,but its not clear as to what I have to do with it,,, I have tried several times installing and un installing FSUIPC but syill don't have the 'Add On ' button in the menu bar
Can someone please help with a clear instructions thanks,, I'm running win 10
here is the post Pete pinned
Some folks are finding that, with P3D version 3, after installing FSUIPC4 apparently successfully, the AddOns menu with an FSUIPC entry doesn't appear when "ready to run".
Reference to the FSUIPC4.LOG (in the P3D Modules folder) woud show that the module "SimConnectP3D2.DLL" was not found (even though it is plainly there), and subsequently there are many failing attempts to connect to SimConnect logged.
The reason for Windows reporting that the module can't be found is currently not known. The workaround is to install SimConnect manually.
You'll find all the versions of SimConnect in the P3D "redist" folders. Try the Simconnect.msi from the folder redist\Interface\FSX-SP2-XPACK, for example.
This will all to be the good in the long run. I think you'll find you'll be needing at least the FSX-SP1 and FSX-SP2 SimConnects installed if you ever intend to use many FSX Addons with P3Dv3.
