Can't get IVAO or VATSIM functionality

Recommended Posts

When I start up FSC 8.42 I get the error message saying "File fsc_ivac.txt missing or zero bytes. IVAO and VATSIM features unavailable".

However a file with that name and file size 66 kB is there and if I start the FSC80.exe file (I upgraded by moving the files to the old folder) instead I don't get the message and can download VATSIM info (haven't IVAO since I don't care about that).

On my laptop I installed FSCommander 8.4 in the same way, first 8.0 and then the 8.4 files into the same folder and there I have no problem getting the VATSIM display to work. What can be at fault? The IVAO and VATSIM options under Online are now greyed out.

When I start FSCommander FSX I cant get IVAO download to work. VATSIM works fine.

I have FSC version 9.4  for FSX. I have window 7.

Message:VATSIM 01.12.2013.22:19z/ATC 90 - PILOTS 519

Hi Richard,

 

I tried it out this night and it works fine. Sometimes the IVAO-servers have lots of problems and in that case

 

You have to try downloading the date a few minutes or more later.

 

Btw.: there is only one FSC either for the FS9 or the FSX available.

 

Kind regards

Michael

Hi Richard,

are you sure that you have installed the FlightSim Commander as an administrator?
Please read here: http://forum.simflight.com/topic/71602-important-information-on-registration-installation-and-use-of-fscommander/ 
If your problem still exists, try the download again.
Then send me an e-mail include the complete folder /SUPPORT.
My e-mail address you can find here: www.fscommander.com .

 

Regards,

Volker

Thanks Volker & Michael.

for getting back to me in answer to your question.

1. I have uninstalled FSCOMMANDER 9.4 Re installed selecting admin rights.

2. Uninstalled IVAP and reinstalled IVAP.

3. VATSIM DATE 04.12.2013 - 09.11Z/ATC:19 PILOTS 202

4 IVAO DATE THE SAME 01.01.2013 - 19.07Z/ATC 99 - PILOTS 941.

so FSC is working but not for IVAO Weather works ok to.

FSC is in FSX(F:) Microsoft Flight Simulator x fs9.4

hope this helps for a solution.

Many thanks

Richard

Hi Volker,

Out of shear desperation I have purchased FSC9.4 from Aerosoft again hoping this would fix the problem. When I click on the online button, I now get this date # 08.04.2010 and not todays date.

 

It appears to me that a file is not being picked up by my computer, if so do you have any suggestions has how I can fix the problem.?

 

Also I cant register my name the following name appears on start up of the programm:

AEROSOFT GMBH INFO @ AEROSOFT.DE

I start FSC via the aerosoft launcher and installed via the launcher.

 

 

Cheers 

Richard

The FSCommander whom you have purchased from Aerosoft, can not be personalized with your name.
