Recommended Posts

I have repurchased FSUIPC v4.6 for my FSX from simMarket.com and recieved and installed the program sucessfully, but when I get to copy paste my name, then my Email and finally my new key to the register screen it keeps telling me I have an invalid entry, four very careful and double checked attemps fail each time. I have deleted old registration each time but this makes no differance. Can you help

I have repurchased FSUIPC v4.6 for my FSX from simMarket.com

Why "repurchased"? You only need to buy it once.

and recieved and installed the program sucessfully, but when I get to copy paste my name, then my Email and finally my new key to the register screen it keeps telling me I have an invalid entry, four very careful and double checked attemps fail each time. I have deleted old registration each time but this makes no differance. Can you help

If it says the key is invalid then it either doesn't match the FSUIPC version (i.e. it is an FSUIPC3 or WideFS key), or you are making any error somewhere. Since you used a false name here (why do folks do this?) I cannot check for you. If you tell me your registered name I may have the details (I don't necessarily get them all). Don't post the key here though.

Andy's suggestion about the system date would not invalidate the key, it would only prevent FSUIPC working correctly when registered as it would assume the key was pirated.

Thanks Pete sorry I am not using the WS version and because my old FSUIPC v3.74 was purchased 04/30/2007 for FS9 user name Ron Hollins and because that will no longer accept my key I thought it must be out of date for using in FSX so that is why I have purchased the latest version 4.20 however I now find the key issued with the latest version will not work in FSX so both my flights sims are running with unregistered versions at the moment.

Version 4.20 is definitely NOT the latest version! It is completely out of date and will not work with any keys purchased recently. The current user release is 4.60 and there's a later version also availble in the Updates announcement. Please do not ask for support with any old versions.

Also the oldest supported version for FS9 is 3.98. Note that FSUIPC3 and FSUIPC4 use different keys-- they are different products.

I am still attempting to get the key issued on the simMarket invoice to be accepted after paying for and installing FSUIPC version 4.46 on FSX with service pack 2.

I have tried both the copy/paste and typing it in direct, I have tried it by choosing all three options in turn ie FSUIPC only/FSUIPC with WS since your latest version for FSX incorporates WideFS . Regarding the PC date my invoice date is 07/03/2010 and I presume you mean checking the PC date is running correct at todays date which it is, and you mean it should be the invoice date OR later which it is or did you mean roll back todays date back to the invoice date before entering the key?. When starting FSX the trusted publisher name is simflight Gmbtl which is where I purchased it. So everything should work but something is not allowing it to accept the key.see details from installation

You paid for FSUIPC4, not a specific version "4.46", which is in any case out of date, unsupported, and won't work with Keys purchased in 2010.

I have tried both the copy/paste and typing it in direct, I have tried it by choosing all three options in turn ie FSUIPC only/FSUIPC with WS since your latest version for FSX incorporates WideFS .

It isn't included in the purchase. For efficiency in operation the WideServer.DLL component of WideFS, which used to be separate, in built into the FSUIPC4 code.

I have on record two purchases by you, both for FSUIPC3. The first was on 30th April 2007 (order #332840) and the second on 3rd July 2010 (order #634931). It seems you have made a mistake in your purchase! FSUIPC3 keys will certainly never work in FSUIPC4. Didn't you read the page you purchased from or check your receipt?

would this be useful in tracing why it does not register?

Installer for FSUIPC4.DLL version 4.60a

Looking in registry for FSX install path:

Pete Thanks,so it means I have purchased two old versions for FS9 so that should install OK with any of the two registery keys into FS9 as a registered copy. and you are saying I must now purchase and download the correct FSX version which is FSUIPC v4.6 which is what I have got?

Well there's no such thing as "old versions" of Keys. FSUIPC3 (which is for FS98, FS2000, CFS1, CFS2 and FS2002 as well as FS9/FS2004) is current and updated regularly just as FSUIPC4 (for FSX and ESP) is. They are two separate, but live, products. But, yes, you have two FSUIPC3 keys at present, and not one for FSUIPC4. Doesn't your receipt show this?

... and you are saying I must now purchase and download the correct FSX version which is FSUIPC v4.6 which is what I have got?

You do not purchase a specific version of FSUIPC4. You already downloaded 4.60a (there is a later version in the Updates Announcement if you are interested). But for the key purchase, yes, unless you can persuade SimMarket that it was an honest error on your part and see if they will replace it for you. Raise a problem ticket there.

Thanks everybody, I now have the current versions running in FS9 FSUIPCv3.9.8.0 and in FSX FSUIPC v 4.57

However in FS9 when I press Alt to get the menu bar and select Modules then the FSUIPC drop down it is all there but when I click on FSUIPC I get a fraction of a second the settings display screen but then it goes to a blank screen, I then have to select ESC to get back to the flight sim. The FSX version is working perfectly.

That is always down to a video driver bug. Either find a video driver update to fix it, or revert to Windowed mode. It isn't in FSUIPC's control. When you select the FSUIPC menu it merely calls upon Widows to display a standard dialog. Some buggy video drivers have problems doing this correctly in full screen mode.

The FSX version is working perfectly.

FSX uses a later version of the DirectX interface to FS9 and evidently that isn't buggy in the video drivers you are using.

Thanks Pete and Andy for your fast response, on a Sunday as well, so everything is working now as far as FSUIPC goes, so as you say it's my video drivers, that might account for why I can't get my new Flight 1 Citation Mustang to refuse to recognize any mouse imputs? that's another story. Thanks again and I will try coming out of full screen with FS9 until my next video driver update.Cheers.
