This quadrent comes with your FUIPS version 3. 25 i think

3.50 is current, any earlier is unsupported. For PFC digital controllers you need the PFC.DLL, latest on the http://www.schiratti.com/dowson page.

Is there any spacific settings in there that i need to do cause i can't get it working.

It needs PFC.DLL installing in FS modules folder. There are no relevant settings in FSUIPC whatsoever, though PFC.DLL does use FSUIPC for its FS access. Please see the documentation inside the PFCDLL Zip.

Regards,

Pete

Ok Thanks Pete, Ya i'm not home now but i think it came with the 3.40 or 3.45 version so i should be ok and it came with the PFC.DLL . and all went in good. I'm gonna get an adapter from com port to Usb and i hope that does the trick cause it can't seem to see a com port.The price you pay for this product i better get it going, 580 bucks just for the throttle quadrent and by the time it hits my Canadian visa it will be around 800 or so :cry: So thanks again---Louis

I don't support older versions though. FSUIPC 3.50 is current, though there is a later one available in the top thread here. Also I'm pretty sure that the version 1.989 of PFC.DLL, in the same thread above, is better than the one currently being supplied by PFC.

If you have a standard COM port on your PC it should work okay -- I know MS are trying to eliminate them, but I've not yet come across a desktop-type motherboard without at least one, even if it isn't brought to a socket on the rear. There are notebooks without, of course. Note that PFC.DLL will only list those which are available, so maybe your is already taken by something.

Certainly the USB-Serial link works better in any case, and you can get adapters that work well for as little as $15-20. Just be sure it comes with a driver for your version of Windows -- for a while there wasn't a decent driver for XP. You can get latest drivers on the web.

Regards,

Pete
