FSUIPC key upgraded fromXP to Vista64


Recommended Posts

Hi downloaded and installed FSUIPC 4.09 with XP prior to upgrading to Vista 64bit, now key s rejected by Fsuipc and returns to unregistered copy.

Do I need a new key or is there a fix

Just re-register, following the instructions in the user documentation. You will have to run FSX with the "Run as Administrator" option, as Vista won't let programs update the registry otherwise, even if you ARE the administrator. The documentation does tell you this.

From a message posted privately:

What a nightmare finally after messing around I located the user access account and turned it off as well as resetting the access permissions which some are not allowed and finally after saying if this does not work I give --- it worked. VISTA WOW!??

WOW what a load of --- problems!!

Maybe some of this is only with 64-bit? Because I've tried both Vista Home Premium 32bit and Vista Ultimate 32bit and the only problem at all is that to register you have to right-click on the FSX incon and select "Run as Administrator!.

There was a problem with earlier versions of FSUIPC4 because it wanted to write the FSUIPC4.KEY file to the FSX folder, and if you allow FSX to select the default install path it goes into "Program Files", where no one is allowed to write with default permissions! (Duh!). The current version of FSUIPC4 (4.09) writes to the Documents\Flight Simulator X Files folder instead (though there is a little bug where it names them without the '4', fixed in the next version with automatic correction to existing names).

I use Vista Home Premium 64-bit and had no issues with registering FSUIPC or WideFS when following the instructions supplied.

Thanks for confirming. But did you allow FSX to install itself in the default folder, in "Program Files"? I think there are dfferences when you seelct somewhere less protected for installation.

I'm wondering why some folks have more difficulty that others.
