Dear All,

I red in the manual about running FSC on a second computer, using WideScreen.

My computer's graphics card (8800GTX) has 2 VGA-connectors. Is there any possibility to run FSX on my first monitor and FSC on a second monitor at the same time, with both monitors connected to the same computer?

Running FSX and FSC 8.6 under Windows7 Ultimate

FSC, bought yesterday from Aerosoft (download version). I like it!!!

Computer: HP9480 with a Q9650 cpu (3GHz)

8 GB Ram

Nvidia 8800GTX.

Thanks for feed-back

Henk

Hi Henk,

Plug in your second monitor and ensure that you can get your mouse cursor across the two screens. If so, then you can drag anything from your first monitor to your second one. Regarding FSC, start it then drag it to your second monitor (and adjust its size if required). Start FSX and run it in windowed mode otherwise it will not work. And once you've dragged FSC on your second monitor, it will go there automatically the next time it is started.

And if you're interested in having FSC start automatically when you start FSX, then add the following lines to the very bottom of your FSUIPC configuration file (file type is Configuration Settings) located in the Modules folder of FSX.

[Programs]

Run1=READY,CLOSE,"C:\FSC\FSC86.exe"

These two lines will cause FSUIPC to start FSC when FSX is started and close it once FSX is closed. And my example of FSC's path is valid provided you have installed it under the C: drive as suggested by the authors of FSC, especially if you're running Windows 7 which you are. If not, simply adjust the path.

I'm also running FSX (and FS9) on Windows 7 with two screens. Works OK but as mentioned, FSX or FS9 must be running in 'windowed' mode. Regarding your question about 'undocking', no this has nothing to do with that because FSC runs as a separate program.

Regards,

Jean-Jacques
