Connecting Fscommander


Recommended Posts

I have fscommander 8 loaded on vista on a network client and xp on the server. Fsc seems to work ok - I can save a flight plan and send it across to fsx. and fsc has completed the D/B manager. However connection of the GPS gives "unable to connect to Fsx msg#10" The fsx window says connected and the window on the client also says connected. I have a registered version of fsiupc. I have read about a missing .dll file as being a possible cause. Does this have to present in fsc?

One thing I notice is that I am unable to open the client from the server (from the workgroup) it comes up with a password request and my e-mail address as the username. I have no p/w set that opens this, dont know if this can effect connection of widefs.

Also what should the contents of the wide client be? I have the following:

WideClient Application 53KB

WideClient Configuration Sett... 1KB

WideClient Text Document 1KB

WideCLient0 Text Document 1KB

wps.dat DAT File 1KB

I am not sure that I the correct files

Many thanks

You don't need a registered FSUIPC for WideFS, you need WideFS to be registered. However, if they both say "connected" I assume that is what you mean?

No idea what is meant by a "missing DLL". Is this for FSC or something you've read to do with WideFS?

One thing I notice is that I am unable to open the client from the server (from the workgroup) it comes up with a password request and my e-mail address as the username.

Sorry, I've no idea what this means. Where are you trying to "open ther client"?

Also what should the contents of the wide client be?

The only part always needed is WideClient.EXE. Run that. It sounds like you are running it in any case if it says "connected", otherwise it couldn't say anything! ;-)

If you want any help with muy programs, I need these things please:

Version numbers: Wideclient and FSUIP4 version numbers.

Log files: Wideclient.Log for the client, WideServer.Log from the FSX Modules folder, and FSUIPC4.Log also from the Server.

From the rest of your message it seems you have Windows hiding the filetypes like "INI", "TXT" and "LOG". The Log files are text files so if you double-click on them you can read them. Do that then copy them here. Or else change your explorer options so you can see files by their names.

Ok, this is what I have done today: Whilst looking for the version n0 of wide I found that it was set to run in compatability mode for xp (I've got it on a Vista client) Then went back to the server to check the registration settings and found that they had somehow been knocked off and were showing as unregistered. So I re-entered reg for widefs (only) this time and it all worked! Fsc connects perfectly. this is of course very nice but things that work without knowing why are almost as bad as things that dont work at all so I would very much appreciate any reasons that you can see for this in the following. I only started all this last Friday!

Many Thanks, Tim

What am I supposed to be looking for? What is the problem you need solving please?

Only this is wrong:

********* FSUIPC4, Version 4.10 by Pete Dowson *********

User Name="TIM LEWIS"

User Addr="tlewis20@tiscali.co.uk"

FSUIPC4 Key is provided

FSUIPC4 not user registered

All this shows is that the FSUIPC key in the FSUIPC4.KEY file is not a valid Key for FSUIPC4 with that user name and address.

Not having FSUIPC4 registered won't stop applications working, it will only stop you using the extra user facilities.

Pete

I was just trying to understand why it had taken me so long! I have registered fsuicp but did not put my reg details in this time - I did not purchase fsuicp at the same time as wide - is it possible that only entering reg for wide this time has removed a problem of conectivity?

No, not possible except in one circumstance -- a bad key for FSUIPC which looks okay and is accepted, but which is actually made by a pirate key generator. If, when you register FSUIPC again, you get a repeat of the problems, Zip up the FSUIPC.KEY file and send it to me (petedowson@btconnect.com) and I can check that.

Just entered reg details for fsuipc as well and all is well. the only thing I can think is that it was caused by setting the wide client to run as xp but on vista machine. Hope this can be of assistance to to others.

:oops: :lol:

Sooo much better than trying to run fsc on maxivista!

Cheers

Tim
