Error Starting FSUIPC


Recommended Posts

Hi all

I'm trying to get FSUIPC to start, but so far it has proven impossible

I've read all the posts related to this error, reinstalled sdk sp1, simconnect, done the repair thing, but it still doesn't work.

I also have a stutter in game every 5 seconds or so, seems to be the same case as from another thread here in the forum.

for addons I've got ASX/AGX on a network install and Copilot pro from abacus

Any help much appreciated

Regards

Bruno

Install log file

Installer for FSUIPC4.DLL version 4.11

Looking in registry for FSX install path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator\10.0

Parameter"SetupPath"

SetupPath="C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\"

Checking version of FSX.EXE:

... Version 10.0.61355.0 (Need at least 10.0.60905.0)

Checking compatibility with installed SimConnect:

... Okay, Probe Manifest matches installed SimConnect 60905 (Original)

Found later build SimConnect 61242 (SP1 May07)

Checking if there's already a version of FSUIPC4 installed in:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Modules\FSUIPC4.DLL

... Version 4.115 found.

From the Log it is obvious FSUIPC has started, but Simconnect is not connecting to FSX.

I also have a stutter in game every 5 seconds or so, seems to be the same case as from another thread here in the forum.

That is because FSUIPC is trying to get SimConnect to connect again every 5 seconds.

There's the problem then -- you've got an incorrect SimConnect.xml, one which probably enables "global" connections to Simconnect (the "global" in that file actually means "remote"), and stops all local connections.

Maybe re-installing FSUIPC will fix it. If not you will have to edit your SimConnect.xml file. To reinstall FSUIPC you will first need to delete version 4.115 from the FSX Modules folder, as it is later than the one the Installer currently provides. You can put 4.115 back afterwards (or 4.116 which will rpobably be up by then).

I would hope that programs like ASX come with documentation for remote connection which explain this properly. Did you check?

Dear Pete, thank you very much for your quick reply :)

I have reinstalled FSUIPC but the problem persists, could you be so kind as to explain to me what I need to edit in the SimConnect.xml file.

Actually, all local stuff will work fine if you simply delete it. Quite honestly I don't understand how you have got it into such a mixed mess. Is this from following ASX instructions? Does it actually work with ASX? Because it shouldn't.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>

SimConnect

SimConnect.xml

False

False

IPv4

local <<<<<< change "local" to "global"

BRUNO-PC

64

500

4096

False

Just change the local to global THEN reinstall FSUIPC4, which will add a correct local section. The section you have doesn't appear to be a valid section at all. Don't forget to delete the interim 4.116 DLL before re-installing 4.11. You can put it back afterwards.

I'd appreciate it if you'd feed back something about this mess to ASX support so they can fix their documentation, if that is indeed where you got this from. It looks like I will have to add something to the FSUIPC instructions. My installer tries to fix the SimConnect.xml, but it is hard to think of all the possible ways it can be wrong!

Sorry to bother you again, but what do you mean by "The section you have doesn't appear to be a valid section at all."

This section:

False

IPv4

local

BRUNO-PC

64

500

4096

False

says it is "local" but then gives PC name (address) and a port, neither of which work for local clients. Change local to global. That is NOT a local section. When you run FSUIPC4 install again it will add a basic minimal local section, which looks more like this:

False

Auto

local

Or you can add that yourself if you like, before the final

Doesn't ASX support help with the installation at all?

Pete

Ok, I understood now, yes, it does, but to be honest I installed asx before I had the need to install FSUIPC. I had to install FSUIPC because of the Wilco Citation X addon.

Yesterday, by chance I was reading ASX's instructions again, and there's a point regarding installations with or without FSUIPC. In the installation with FSUIPC, their instruction is exactly what you taught me to do.

Once again, thank you very much for your quick reply.

Best regards and have a nice day. :D

Ok, I understood now, yes, it does, but to be honest I installed asx before I had the need to install FSUIPC.

But that should have been okay. The FSUIPC installer checks to see if there is a "SimConnect.xml" file, and if there is it checks to ensure there's a "local" section. If there isn't it adds that minimal one I showed you.

The problem with the xml file you made was that it said it was "local" but had non-local settings in it. It isn't easy to design an installer to cater for every possible error folks might make. This is why I'd hope those products which use SimConnect.xml would either come with decent installers for it, or at least with documentation adequate to get the file made correctly.

Okay. That's good then.
