VSPE Again..I Cannot Get it Right..ARGHHHH!


Recommended Posts

After a complete reinstall of FSX and all my add-ons and hardware I cannot get the VSPE to work with FSUIP to get the MRInsight M-Panel loaded.

The panel will load via the start menu or shortcut ok so the problem isn't there. After checking and rechecking my shortcut and .ini entries without finding anything I'm hoping to get the fix here. Prior to the reinstall, and after Pete corrected my syntax in the VSPE shortcut it worked perfectly.

Current settings:

VPSE Pair......COM5 <===> COM6 (Also tried COM1 <===> COM2 )

FSUIPC4.ini.......

[VRInsight]

1=COM5,COM6

[Programs]

Run1=READY,CLOSE,C:\Program Files(x86)\SerialFP2\SerialFP2.exe

Note that the new driver software uses Program Files(x86) as the main directory instead of VRInsight

VSPE shortcut.....

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Eterlogic.com\Virtual Serial Ports Emulator\VSPEmulator.exe" -minimize -hide_splash C:\ComPair_56.vspe

I have double-checked spelling, and directory trees and cannot find any errors

FSUIPC Log....

FSUIPC4 Key is provided

I hope there was a really good reason to reinstall everything. In general most SimConnect problems seem to arise from attempted reinstalls.

Does the 'panel' show your pair operating okay?

Current settings:

VPSE Pair......COM5 <===> COM6 (Also tried COM1 <===> COM2 )

FSUIPC4.ini.......

[VRInsight]

1=COM5,COM6

Er, hold on. COM5 and COM6 are both virtual ports -- you just said so!!

How can FSUIPC talk to your device on COM5 when it is a virtual port? You are trying to give both ends of the linked pair to FSUIPC. What does SerialFP2 use? And how can FSUIPC see the device?

I have double-checked spelling, and directory trees and cannot find any errors

You never thought about what was going on? Why assign ports at random? You need to apply some logic here, and maybe refer to documentation supplied. The path of signals must be Device port to FSUIPC, virtual port out of FSUIPC into a virtual port on SerialFP2. Please please please review the documentation I provided, which is replete with diagrams explaining all this!

YES, I thought long and hard.

Why assign ports at random?

After trying to follow your documentation my last attempts probably look random. According to Device Manager, the SerialFP2 is using COM8. My first setting was 1=COM8,COM5...didn't work. Tried 1=COM8,COM6....didn't work. Ditto when I created a pair COM1<===>COM2

My printout of these documents is dog-eared and limp from repeated reference to them.

OK

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;

Or close the COM up with our SERIALFP2

Your responses seem to imply that I am either not too bright or too lazy to do my homework.

It is true that I am no longer a fiery youth but I have an earned doctorate in mathematics, taught in a university for 25 years and prior to that was a USAF combat crew navigator. Believe me, I have done a lot of studying and would much rather learn something than request help.

If the device is on COM8, then COM8 must be the first port. You are probably not telling SerialFP2 to search again. Also do check that VSPE is actually saying that the pair you are asking it to create are 'Ok'.

I'm afraid I cannot support either VSPE or SerialFP2 as both are by others and outside my control. All I can advise and document are what works for me and others.

On your subsequent post:

ERROR 267 FSUIPC cannot open C:\Program Files(x86)\SerialFP2\SerialFP2.exe

This has absolutely nothing to do with any assignment of COM ports. This is saying that FSUIPC cannot get Windows to run SerialFP2. Evidently you've moved it or have got the parameter wrong in the Programs section of the INI file. I suggest you look for the program and make sure it is where you are telling FSUIPC it is.

Regards

Pete
