Getting Started


Recommended Posts

I am trying to get started using the FSUIPC SDK in C. I have FSX and FSUIPC installed, and the UIPCHello program included in the sdk connects and works fine. However, when I put the source files in a Visual Studio Project, I can't seem to connect to it at all. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get started developing with the C sdk?

The SDK provides source examples, but not ready-made projects. You need to set up your own projects and use the documentation and examples only to understand how to program to the FSUIPC interface.

The source for the library file is also provided, so if the library doesn't match your version of Microsoft C you can build your own, or simply use the source directly in your program. The files do tend to date back to FS98 days because that's when FSUIPC started and the interface is compatible for all versions of FS from that time till today.

Regards
