FSX won't run with FSUIPC4 4.152 installed


Recommended Posts

Can anybody help me at all please ?

I have installed FSUIPC4 4.152 using the installer from the zip file & now FSX try's to run but shuts down with no messages. The startup screen opens but then a small dialouge box pops up & flashes off again very fast [can't read it] & then FSX shuts down. If I remove the modules folder it runs ok. I have included the installation log.

Installer for FSUIPC4.DLL version 4.152

Looking in registry for FSX install path:

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

Parameter"SetupPath"

SetupPath="E:\Flight Sim X\"

Checking version of FSX.EXE:

... Version 10.0.60905.0 (Need at least 10.0.60905.0)

Checking compatibility with installed SimConnect:

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

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

E:\Flight Sim X\Modules\FSUIPC4.DLL

... No previous valid version found.

FSX Modules folder already exists.

Okay -- installed FSUIPC4 into "E:\Flight Sim X\Modules\FSUIPC4.DLL"

Looking for the current user's Application Data path:

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

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

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

No FSX.CFG there

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\Raymondo\Application Data"

Found FSX.CFG in "C:\Documents and Settings\Raymondo\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.

Now installing additional files into the Modules folder:

Installed "FSUIPC4 User Guide.pdf" okay

Installed "FSUIPC4 for Advanced Users.pdf" okay

Installed "FSUIPC4 History.pdf" okay

Installed "List of FSX controls.pdf" okay

All installer tasks completed okay!

*************** End of Install Log ***************

Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like the SimConnect bug which causes FSX to crash when one SimConnect client tries to read FSX data whilst you are being prompted to allow a newly-installed client to run.

This is mostly fixed by the SP1 update for FSX, which you don't appear to have installed. (I say "mostly" because it doesn't fix 100% of cases).

You have two choices: one is to temporarily disable your other SimConnect clients (ones loaded by the DLL.XML or EXE.XML files), by renaming them, for instance. Then run FSX and get FSUIPC "approved" (you can optionally tell Windows to always approve programs signed by me, Peter L Dowson, which would allow easier updates), and finally close FSX and re-enable the other programs. If you are not sure what you have running which is conflicting, show me the DLL.XML file, and, if you have one, the EXE.XML file. They will be found in the same folder as your FSX.CFG file -- Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Microsoft\FSX (or slightly different for Vista).

The other choice, which is a good move in any case as it fixes a load of other stuff, is to download and install the SP1 update for FSX.

By the way, there is a later version of the FSUIPC4.DLL available in the FSX Downloads announcement above. (4.156).

Regards

Pete
