FSX Does Not Recognize FSUIPC4


Recommended Posts

I would very much appreciate some tips from anyone on what's not right with my installation of FSUIPC4. I've read most of the relevant documentation, and I gather I should be seeing an "Addon" menu item inside FSX on the right side of the menu, and there's nothing there.

Windows 7 Home Premium, FSX w/Acceleration, FSUIPC4 v4.60. I've reinstalled FSUIPC4 a couple of times, tried the registry fixes, and the install log looks OK to me:

Installer for FSUIPC4.DLL version 4.60a

Looking in registry for FSX install path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator\10.0

Parameter"SetupPath"

... >>> OK! FOUND FSX! <<< ...

Looking in registry for ESP install path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft ESP\1.0

Not there, so looking in:

Deleted GlobalSign Root fix programno longer relevant

===========================================================

All installer tasks completed okay!

Registration check for FSUIPC4 was cancelled or failed! (result code 10)

*************** End of Install Log ***************

I'm trying to get FDC Live Cockpit going, and it won't connect with FSX. I believe my problem lies with FSUIPC4 somewhere.

Any help as to what to check?

Is there an FSUIPC4.LOG in the FSX Modules folder? If so, please show it to me.

If not, then FSUIPC4 is not being loaded. Please paste in your DLL.XML file, which you will find here:

C:\Users\Racklefratz\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX

The Install log looks okay. Is there an FSUIPC4.LOG in the FSX Modules folder? If so, please show it to me.

No, there isn't. Only the install log.

If not, then FSUIPC4 is not being loaded. Please paste in your DLL.XML file

The DLL.XML file is as follows:

FSUIPC 4

False

Modules\FSUIPC4.dll

In the meantime, I did a "Repair" of both FSX and Accel to eliminate the various addons I had installed, leaving a virgin FSX install. I also deleted the fsx.cfg file to start afresh - then attempted a re-install of FSUIPC4. No effect. It's still not loading, and at this point, I'm afraid I'm out of altitude and airspeed on this one. I know of nothing more to check. Am I supposed to have any other utilities installed in order to get FSUIPC4 to load. Am I supposed to have an FSUIPC4.LOG file in the FSX Modules folder? I do not, and if I don't, why don't I?

Think I'm in business now. FSUIPC$.log now shows in my FSX Modules folder, and I have an "Addons" menu item in FSX.

Completely uninstalled and reinstalled FSX, then installed FSUIPC4. Seems to be working. I was able to run Live Cockpit for a brief test.

Still have not reinstalled Acceleration, but will do so and test again.

Thanks for your interest and time. Looks like I had a corrupt FSX installation.
