FSUIPC not updating from 3.71

Recommended Posts

im a registered user of FSUIPC and i currently have version 3.71 within FS9, today i downloaded 3.90 a put it in my modules folder. i booted fs9 and it still has version 3.71 there

You are not actually copying the DLL into the FS modules folder, then. It would overwrite the (very) old version

im also in vista

It sounds like you let FS install into its default place in Program Files, which of course are all protected in Vista. That's quite messy. Because FS2004 is not Vista aware, and doesn't obey the rules of a Vista program, the Vista system actually keeps the folders for FS elsewhere. What you see in Explorer isn't the real Modules folder but an aliassed one.

I think you can get around this by running Windows Explorer by right-clicking on it and selecting "Run As administrator", then copying the new DLL over the old one.
