FSX doesn't remember FSUIPC key

Recommended Posts

I recently upgraded to FSX and Vista O/S for which I purchased a new FSUIPC and WideFS key to go with the latest FSCUIPC 4.070 which I have downloaded.

I installed it using the exe file.

The "add on" tab appears in flightsim and allows me to open the FSUIPC window which tells me software is unregistered etc.

I open register FSUIPC window and enter details including new key and click OK. It seems to accept this and tells me I need to restart flightsim for registration to become active.

I press confirm

When I restart flightsim and look at FSUIPC it has gone back to showing unregistered.

Can anyone help, what am I doing wrong or is their a known problem ??

thanks and regards

Here is the log file for FSUIPC from the FSX modules folder.

Seems to show that it is seeing my registration but not activating it.

I have tried removing and re-instal but exactly the same, and yes I have looked closely at the name, email and key to make sure they are exactly what I got from Simmarket.

Any help appreciated, I have no idea what to do next. My old XP/FS9/FSUIPC 3.x worked fine

My FSUIPC V4 has now registered within windows vista.

Here is the answer:

Although I installed all software on this P/C and am the only user and seem to have normal admin rights within Vista, (I've been installing programs and setting it up), it seems for some reason FSX does not recognise this.

When I right clicked on the FSX start icon and selected "Run as Administrator", FSX started and like before I found and entered my FSUIPC details. Then I closed FSX as instructed, and restarted it, to my amazement FSUIPC was now registered.

It seems that although you might seem to have admin priv. in all other respects in Vista, you need to specifically open FSX as an admin to register FSUIPC.

Once registered you can open FSX anyway you like and it is all ok.

This discovery has taken me many hours, hope it saves someone else a lot of head scratching !!!!!
