Suspect FSUIPC problem in Radar Contact


Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has been asked before - i've done quite a lot of searching and can't find an answer!

I've just installed Radar Contact on my new PC running Vista 32-bit. I've installed and registered all the .ocx files and updated to the latest version of Radar Contact and FSUIPC.

When I come to start RC I keep getting a warning - 'IPC timed out all retries'. I can't find any mention of this on any forum - does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

Mike

Sounds like RC can't talk to FSUIPC. What version of FSUIPC are you using?

The only other report I've heard of like that was on a Vista installation, where the user had installed FS2004 using its default location, in "Program Files". Apparently Vista protects folders in Program Files, and allows pre-Vista program compatibility by a sort of aliassing system for the folders. Why this should mess up RC specifically I've no idea, but evidently something about how RC works gets thwarted.

In the case I know of, the user only resolved it by uninstalling FS2004 and installing it somewhere else, like C:\FS2004. As far as I know this most certainly should not be necessary, but I suggest you go to Radar Contact support to see what the correct solution should be.

Regards

Pete
