FSUIPC4 installation in slave PC


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm trying to run two separate computers for FSX. The main PC is currently running FSX only, and the second(slave) will run Squakbox and vasFMC. I understand that FSUIPC4 and WideFS7 is required to run the external version of Squakbox and vasFMC on separate computers. I have purchased the keys for FSUIPC4 and WideFS7 and installed them on my main computer. I have also installed Squakbox and vasFMC on both computers. My problem arises when I try to install FSUIPC4 on the the slave PC which DOES NOT have FSX installed. Is it possible to install FSUIPC4 without FSX? My understanding is that WideFS7 is suppose to eliminate the need to install FSX on the slave PC. Did I misunderstand or am I missing a step in order to make this work?

No, Squawkbox 3 worked with FSUIPC and WideFS, but Squawkbox 4 is a pure SimConnect application, and communicates via SimConnect, not via FSUIPC nor WideFS.

I don't know vasFMC.

You don't install FSUIPC4 on any client PCs, only on the FSX PC. The only component of mine you need on the client PC is WideClient, the part of WideFS for client PCs. WideClient talks to WideServer on the FSX PC (the part of WideFS built into FSUIPC4), and that talks to FSUIPC4 (obviosuly, it is now part of it. ;-) ).
