Does FSUIPC require Internet Connection all the time?


Recommended Posts

Hello fellow FS enthusiast,

I used to have internet connection, but I am traveling a lot for the time being, that means that I have had to cut my bills and unfortunately the internet connection was 1 of the most expensive I had to cut off.

I use FSUIPC, registered of course, but FSX crashes down every time I try to fx. Calibrate Joystick, Assign Buttons etc.

I just wonder if there is no alternatives to "bypass" the internet connection so I can use FSUIPC which I spent some money to?????

It is annoying that FSX always crashes when I try to get the FSUIPC work!!!

Hope to get some answers or helps!

Best regards

FSUIPC does not use the Internet. It has no networking or internetting code in it whatsoever.

It is annoying that FSX always crashes when I try to get the FSUIPC work!!!

Why do you think it's to do with the Internet? You don't provide any information for me to help you further.

Hello Pete,

Thanks for your response.

I have tried the FSUIPC connected with the internet, and it works - but as soon as I disconnect the internet - FSX crashes while I try to use FSUIPC.

What further information do you want so I can use FSUIPC full-out?

I have FSUIPC 4.6 registred

FSX Acceleration

Win7

Also, 1 of the problems is, that if I have FSUIPC installed - FSX crashes as well trying to exit the FSX application.

When I uninstall the FSUIPC from the modules, then I don't have the problem with FSX crashing.

You've evidently not bothered to read my reply properly! FSUIPC does not use the internet. It does not connect to anything at all outside of FS! There is nothing in it which ever tries or wants to connect to the Internet!

- but as soon as I disconnect the internet - FSX crashes while I try to use FSUIPC.

It cannot be anything to do with FSUIPC. You have something else doing it! And what do you mean by "trying to use FSUIPC". FSUIPC isn't "used" by users, but by applications. All you can do it set options etc in its dialogues.

I repeat, as you seem not to see what I tell you: there are no options in FSUIPC to connect to the internet. It does not use the internet and never needs to go anywhere near it!

What further information do you want so I can use FSUIPC full-out?

None at all because your problem cannot possibly be anything to do with FSUIPC!

Also, 1 of the problems is, that if I have FSUIPC installed - FSX crashes as well trying to exit the FSX application.

When I uninstall the FSUIPC from the modules, then I don't have the problem with FSX crashing.

In that case the crash is being caused by something you've added which uses FSUIPC, and the Internet, but which simply does not operate without FSUIPC being present. Disable all of your add-ons and re-enable them one at a time till you find which it is. (Though really you should certainly be fully aware of what add-ons you've installed which connect to the Internet!)

Pete

I understand, that FSUIPC doesnt require internet connection! But STILL FSX crashes when I have FSUIPC installed, and when I have FSUIPC uninstalled FSX runs normally!

It seems that we have an unrecognizable problem!

I run FSX with Acceleration in a Win7 32bit system...

I understand, that FSUIPC doesnt require internet connection! But STILL FSX crashes when I have FSUIPC installed, and when I have FSUIPC uninstalled FSX runs normally!

So, why do you think it is anything to do with the Internet? Please refer back to your earlier post where you stated:

I have tried the FSUIPC connected with the internet, and it works

Was that not actually true, then?

It seems that we have an unrecognizable problem!

Unrecognisable? Why? So far you have provided no information whatsoever. I cannot help on that basis. If you have a problem to resolve i need information sufficient to resolve it.

I need to see the Log files: there should be two, in the FSX Modules folder: an Install log and an FSUIPC4 log.

I need more EXACT information about what you mean by "FSX crashes when I have FSUIPC installed". When does it do this? What exactly happens when it "crashes"? Are there messages, or what? What have you done before it does so? What other add-ons are you running?

Please consider this: you posted your first complaint here a week ago, yet we are no further forward because you have all the time insisted that it is all to do with an Internet connection. Perhaps the problem is that one of your add-ons using FSUIPC is using the Internet too, and that is where the problem lies? List all of the add-ons you are using, maybe the culprit can be isolated. Try running with nothing else but FSUIPC installed, and introduce the add-ons one at a time ...

Regards

Here you get what you want

Okay, both logs show everything is working well. However, the FSUIPC4.LOG file is incomplete. Did FSX "crash" after you stopped flight mode -- presumably going into the Menus, someplace as appears to be shown by the last line:

132616 Sim stopped: average frame rate for last 50 secs = 19.7 fps
?

If FSX didn't crash, I'd like to see the complete FSUIPC4.LOG file, after FSX is closed down.

If FSX crashed, I need the description of exactly what you sawwhat you actually mean by "crashed". Is there a message, does it just disappear? Or what? If there's a message, what does it say?

Information is important if we're to solve your problem. If you look back to my previous message I not only asked to see the Logs (thank you) but I asked these questions:

I need more EXACT information about what you mean by "FSX crashes when I have FSUIPC installed". When does it do this? What exactly happens when it "crashes"? Are there messages, or what? What have you done before it does so? What other add-ons are you running?

I see already that you are running at least one add-on -- Digital Aviation PA31T1 Cheyenne I. So, that's the first thing to try: does it crash when using default aircraft, not this add-on? You'll also see, if you refer back again to my previous message, that I asked further questions:

Please consider this: you posted your first complaint here a week ago, yet we are no further forward because you have all the time insisted that it is all to do with an Internet connection. Perhaps the problem is that one of your add-ons using FSUIPC is using the Internet too, and that is where the problem lies? List all of the add-ons you are using, maybe the culprit can be isolated. Try running with nothing else but FSUIPC installed, and introduce the add-ons one at a time ...

Should I really have to repeat myself all the time until we get somewhere? For instance, the most important question still remains unanswered:

WHY DID YOU ORIGINALLY ASK ABOUT AN INTERNET CONNECTION? Is it, or is it not true that the crash only happens when you are NOT so connected? Since you made such a fuss over this point, surely that must be a clue. We should be looking for whatever add-on you have which is trying to access the Internet and causing the crash if it cannot!

Hello Pete,

Sorry for waiting to reply your message.

Well, I have completely copied that both logs has written...

FSX crashes when I enter the FSUIPC, and try to customize the buttons and levers on my Saitek Pro Flight Yoke system. Then FSX crashes, and wants to restart FSX application. Even when I try to restart FSX - I cant.

Everytime I use FSX without FSUIPC installed, FSX resumes working properly.

I have tried to uninstall the Digital Aviation PA31T2 Cheyenne, FSX crashes as well when I try to customize the buttons and levers.

However, I doesnt seem to be the internet connection which is the issue.

Reason why I is, that I tried FSUIPC with internet connection before where the plug-in appeared to work properly...

So I dont think that we have a solution for this outstanding problem.

FSUIPC cannot have anything whatsoever to do with preventing you running FSX. If FSX is crashing when the FSUIPC options menu is entered, then it will almost certainly be a graphics driver bug (the options menu is a standard Windows graphic). See if it happens in FSX Windowed mode -- usually these bugs only affect full screen mode.

You don't describe specifically when it happens and what the crash report tells you, so I cannot advise further on that.

I have tried to uninstall the Digital Aviation PA31T2 Cheyenne, FSX crashes as well when I try to customize the buttons and levers.

Is this related to anything of mine? Sorry, it seems to be inserted without connection.

However, I doesnt seem to be the internet connection which is the issue.

Nothing of mine has any internet connection in any case.

So I dont think that we have a solution for this outstanding problem.

I certainly cannot even begin to help without more information. And the first and always necessary information is, as always, the version number of FSUIPC. If it is earlier than 4.60, you need to update first. You should then try with the latest Update in the Updates Announcement in this Forum.

Hello Pete,

Regarding the Cheyenne, you have mentioned it previously - and thats the aircraft you mentioned which was written in the FSUIPC log.

I tried to update the FSUIPC once more time, and tried to start it on windowed FSX, and still, when I get into FSUIPC and try to customize the levers, FSX crashes again.

I dont think it can be the graphiccard issue, I have used FSUIPC on the same computer without problems.

Best regards,

Mads

I still need to know the VERSION number of FSUIPC, and a more detailed description of EXACTLY what you are doing when it "crashes" (i.e. what exactly is displayed, in what tab and at what stage), and also EXACTLY what you mean by "crash" -- what is Windows telling you?

Without any information (and you've given me virtually none whatsoever so far, despite my asking this week as well as weeks ago, (as you will find if you refer back), there is no way I can possibly help you. Surely you must see that?

I dont think it can be the graphiccard issue, I have used FSUIPC on the same computer without problems.

That was only a suggestion based on such little information from you, apart from the fact you were entering FSUIPC options. Almost 100% of crashes occurring when you enter FSUIPC options are down to graphics problems, and the crash occurs before FSUIPC actually gets control back from Windows after requesting the options window be drawn.

There was one other, infrequently occurring, problem of the same type which turned out to be some sort of clash with an add-on DLL called Actigate, but I don't think that is used in FSX in any case.

The only other serious problem which has ever occurred in the options is a HANG, not a CRASH, when the buttons or axes tab is entered, and this hang has always been due to a bad joystick driver, often an old one for game ports. This should not happen with very recent versions of FSUIPC because it times such joysticks out and doesn't re-scan them.

I'm on holiday next week and the week after, so please be aware the response time now might be two weeks.

Hello Pete,

Well I think that I know what the problem is, I run Win7 with DX11 installed... So actually it might be graphics issue...

This is how I get the crash:

Start FSX

Choose Free flight

When running FSX, Click Add-on - FSUIPC

Get in to "Axis Assignment" - then FSX crashes, Win says a fatal failure occured, then it wants to restart FSX.

But it cant even restart it, then I have to start task management, and force stop FSX.

Hope that it gave a clue.

Best regards,

Mads

It shouldn't be, unless you are using the wrong driver. My FSX PC is using a GTX 480 card, very recently purhcased and certainly DX11 enabled.

When running FSX, Click Add-on - FSUIPC

Get in to "Axis Assignment" - then FSX crashes

Does it crash the moment you click on the "Axes" tab? Does it manage to draw the axis assignments screen? Or sometime later? If later, exactly what is shown?

Can you enter the Buttons & Switches screen?

What VERSION of FSUIPC are you using.

Win says a fatal failure occured, then it wants to restart FSX.

When it says a fatal error has occurred, what is the exact message, and is there a place to click to get more information? There's never a "fatal error" with no information.

But it cant even restart it, then I have to start task management, and force stop FSX.

You cannot restart FSX if it is still running, ever, fatal error or not.

Hi Pete,

Sorry for the inconvenience, I have found the "problem"................

And that is, that I have to disable the standard controller settings on FSX, then the FSUIPC works at it has to.

Sorry for the time used for this, but - if I knew the problem before, we could have saved a lot of investigation :D

But I hope that you get the vacation you need, and enjoy it.

Best regards,

Mads

Hmm. That's very odd -- it should certainly not cause any sort of crash. Having them enabled and scanned in both places could lead to conflicting values when using the controllers, but it should certainly never crash FS. I would suspect the joystick driver if it did.

Anyway, I am glad you managed to find it and fix it yourself!

Regards

Pete
