New Install gone wrong??


Recommended Posts

I hope I am in the right place. Its late and I'm fried trying to install. Hopefully this is what you need to see if things are working correctly. Download seem to go ok, entered my registration number but I do not have the menu in FSX. Hit ALT to see if menu was hidden, no luck. I have no clue where to go from here. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks

Looking in registry for FSX install path:

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

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Modules\FSUIPC4.DLL

... No previous valid version found.

Okay -- installed FSUIPC4 into "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Modules\FSUIPC4.DLL"

I hope I am in the right place. Its late and I'm fried trying to install. Hopefully this is what you need to see if things are working correctly.

The install was good, nothing wrong there. The important thing is whether there's a file called "FSUIPC4.LOG" -- i.e. the run-time log from FSUIPC. If there is one, please show it to me. If not then FSUIPC4 is not being loaded, which may mean you have me listed as an "Untrusted Publisher" through telling windows not to load my programs at some time.

Let's see if there's a run-time FSUIPC4 log file first. There should also be an FSUIPC4.INI (config settings) and, ofg course, the FSUIPC4.KEY file containing your registration (which you should backup for safety).

Regards

Pete

Pete, I looked and did not find the log. So can I back track and make you "trusted"?

Possibly. To change the status of a publisher you have to run Internet Explorer (it is the custodian). Tools-Internet Options-Content, "Publishers" button, Untrusted vs Trusted publishers.

If that wasn't the problem, please obtain a SimConnect log as instructed in the "FSX Help .." announcement above.

Regards

Pete

Pete is this what you are looking for? I followed the instructions per your previous post to the best of my ability. I'm no programmer or computer guru. I'm truly clueless. I am not sure as to what I should be looking for in either the Trusted vs Untrusted in IE Tools Options. So I am shooting in the wind. Any help greatly appreciated.

Oh dear. Being a programmer or any sort of guru is nothing whatsoever to do with any of this.

The file you posted IS the FSUIPC4.LOG file which you said didn't exist! The fact that is DOES exist, and even says "FSUIPC Menu entry added" means everything is working. So there absolutely MUST be an Add-Ons menu containing FSUIPC!

Where on Earth are you looking? Do you know how to get to the FSX menu at all? The Add-ons menu will be the last item, to the right of all the others. The left most one is Flights I think.

Sorry Pete for being a smart A$$, more being frustrated than anything else. I apologize. To answer your question, I suppose I don;t know how to get to the menu in question. I fire up FSX and get the regular splash screen then on to Home, Free lessons, Missions etc. But I do not see anything to do with Add Ons. Thanks

There's no menu there! Have you never got into FSX to fly? When you are ready to fly there's probably an aircraft control panel showing, and a view of the outside world?

Did you not read any of the FSUIPC4 User Guide? Right in the first section after installation and so on, the one headed "Okay, I’ve installed, and optionally registered. Now what?", it clearly says, right at the beginning:

With FSUIPC4 correctly installed, and Flight Simulator running and ready to fly, look at the FS Menu bar at the top of the screen. (Press ALT to bring it up if it is hidden).

The menu is a normal regular Windows-type menu bar which appears along the top of the FSX screen when you press ALT. It is where you can do all sorts of things in FS, like select flights, change aircraft, select views and panel parts, and so on. Even terminate FSX.

If you've not even flown FSX yet, I suggest you try before bothering about messing in FSUIPC. Then take a look at the menus and all the options you can explore in every part of FS.

Regards

Thank you Pete for hanging in there with me. Things are working! I hope I did not set off your blood pressure. Yes I have flown FSX though for a very short time. So you have my permission to take the rest of the night off! You have earned it! Thanks again and sorry for my ignorance.

Phil
