FSUIPC window will not open completely


Recommended Posts

I had not needed FSUIPC for a while but recently bought a DesktopAviator Auto Pilot which must be

programmed trough the utility. When I open FSUIPC I get the window with all tabs but it does not

open completely so I can't reach the options I need. Can someone tell me how this can happen??? and what

do I do to solve the problem and get on with my cockpit. :x :x :x .....see photo enclosed...

When I open FSUIPC I get the window with all tabs but it does not

open completely so I can't reach the options I need. Can someone tell me how this can happen???

It's due to a mismatch in the font size computations in Windows and the COMCTL32.DLL, and it has plagued me for several years, as it only affects a handful of users per year and I could never reproduce it. However, recently I found a solution published on some deep-down Microsoft website, and applied that, and according to folks who have tried it, it works okay!

and what do I do to solve the problem and get on with my cockpit.

Always check for updates, preferably before posting, because very often your problem would have been known and fixed beforehand. You can check for updates by simply looking in the Announcements at the top of this forum.

Thanks for the quick reply but No Go!!!! I have the latest update and nothing happens.....what now???? :roll:

The "latest version" being what number, exactly, please? A lot of folks say such things, but "latest version" really means nothing without stating the numbers. Can you show me a picture of the first TAB, the "About" one, so I can see for myself?

I ask this because in two different cases of this problem reported only recently, both were fixed by the updates I posted. If you are using 3.945 as I suggested, and still have the problem then I am completely mystified. Why would the changes fix other folks' systems and not yours?

FSUIPC4 4.53..

Oh dear. :roll:

First of all, you don't get 4.53 from "my site" but from Enrico Schirrati's site. I don''t have a website and I have no direct control over any. :shock:

Second, why not simply look at the Announcements in this Forum some time? They are full of useful information. In particular look at the Updates & Other Goodies announcement where you'll always find the very latest interim updates. :D

Since my last message to you, 3.945 has been made obsolete and 3.946 is the latest. There's another due soon. :wink:

Where's the picture to prove it? It really does sound as it you are still running 3.93. Please check the main About tab in the obtains -- I suspect you didn't install the update in the real Modules folder, only the Alias..

BTW, did you try 3.947, released in the Updates announcement today?

You sure are quick, thanks :shock: .....as soon as I get home I´ll try it. Thank you, I´ll cross my fingers until then........ :roll: , my cockpit project is going down the drain.....If 4. is for FSX, why would 3 work....?

Ah. sorry. I really hadn't noticed you were using FSX. I should pay more attention to the pictures. You didn't actually say which version you were using till just! ;-) Of course version 3 will not work in FSX. Mea culpa.

In the Updates & Goodies announcement did you not see the latest for FSX? 4.551 is there now. Try that.

No problem at all.....will try it tonight, I just downloaded it here at the office and its in my Ram disk...I have been fooling with software for 37 years and have always found a solution, sometimes fast and sometimes no so fast....Thank you for your kind attention to my SOS....will let you know tomorrow. :wink:..

Besides FSX and Windows are so innestable I hope my grandsons will be able to play with better systems!!!!!
