Addon menu not showing.


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I recently installed FSUIPC without any sort of error, the installation went perfect however when i boot up FSX there is no add-on menu present that i can see. And there is none of the planes in the aircraft select menu, is there any common causes of this that i should be aware of? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Please show me the FSUIPC4.LOG and Install FSUIPC4.LOG files. You will find them in the FSX Modules folder. There are two likely reasons and I need more information to help.

And there is none of the planes in the aircraft select menu, is there any common causes of this that i should be aware of?

No, there should be nothing in common between SimConnect loading FSUIPC and operating the Add-Ons menu, and the default provision of an aircraft list. If you have no aircraft installed you have something wrong with the FSX installation. I would try doing a repair from the original DVDs.

Pete,

Here is the install log you requested....

nstaller for FSUIPC4.DLL version 4.12

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 4.120 found.

FSX Modules folder already exists.

Okay -- installed FSUIPC4 into "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Modules\FSUIPC4.DLL"

Looking for the current user's Application Data path:

... found as "C:\Documents and Settings\Patrick\Application Data"

Now finding \Microsoft\FSX\FSX.CFG for all users, including this one

Looking in "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data"

No FSX.CFG there

Looking in "C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\Application Data"

No FSX.CFG there

Looking in "C:\Documents and Settings\LocalService\Application Data"

No FSX.CFG there

Looking in "C:\Documents and Settings\NetworkService\Application Data"

No FSX.CFG there

Looking in "C:\Documents and Settings\Patrick\Application Data"

Found FSX.CFG in "C:\Documents and Settings\Patrick\Application Data\Microsoft\FSX\FSX.CFG"!

Now checking DLL.XML ...

... There is a previous DLL.XML, checking for FSUIPC4 section.

... FSUIPC4 section already exists but will be replaced.

... FSUIPC4 section of DLL.XML written okay

Now checking for a SimConnect.XML file ...

... No SimConnect.XML file found. This is okay.

Looking in "C:\Documents and Settings\PEB_Admin\Application Data"

No FSX.CFG there

Now installing additional files into the Modules folder:

Installed "FSUIPC4 User Guide.pdf" okay

Installed "FSUIPC4 for Advanced Users.pdf" okay

Also, i do have the default aircraft from FSX showing up, just no add-on menu, or any of the add-on planes, i should have worded that differently.

Pete,

Okay. This does actually show that the Menu entry for FSUIPC (and hence "Add-Ons" is added okay).

3297 FSUIPC Menu entry added

This is only reported if SimConnect is working and has responded correctly.

Also, i do have the default aircraft from FSX showing up, just no add-on menu, or any of the add-on planes, i should have worded that differently.

I have no idea about add-on planes, I'm afraid, but I cannot understand at all why you cannot see the Add-Ons menuunless possibly one of the Add-Ons (planes or otherwise) is attempting to add a menu entry and somehow screwing it up, losing the whole Add-Ons menu in the process. Maybe the same screw-up is preventing the planes being listed too?

There are two ways to proceed. First, get a SimConnect log. Instructions for this are in the FSX Help announcement above. It'll be large, so ZIP it up and send it to me at petedowson@btconnect.com.

Second, try uninstalling your add-on planes one at a time and see if one of them is the culprit.

Regards

Pete
