FUIPC slowing my FSX way down

Ok I've done this three times . Without your program my premade flights load fast the program starts up quicker and my FSinn program doesn't freeze for minutes. I've loaded it registerd and not both times same result. If I'm doing something wrong help me. This is a brand new Dell machine with win 7

Assuming there are no errors being logged (did you check?), then it will most certainly not be FSUIPC itself doing this, but something using it, something not running the same way without it being there as with it. FSUIPC's overhead on the running of FS is barely measurable, especially when it isn't even registered and therefore not processing any user-set options.

The only thing which can slow things down is if FSUIPC is repeatedly trying to re-initialise its connection with SimConnect. Such problems will be because of a SimConnect installation error and will be shown quite clearly in the Log file. Please check -- both Install and FSUIPC logs will be in the FSX Modules folder.

Also check you are using a supported version of FSUIPC4 -- nothing earlier than 4.60.

Regards

Might want to run FS for a bit longer than 8 seconds to give Pete a better idea of what may be happening on your system.

Well there's unlikely to be any SimConnect issues in FSUIPC in any case as they would probably show up fairly quickly. Interesting that in those 8 seconds of running time he had a really good average FPS:

Average frame rate for running time of 8 secs = 46.5 fps

Odd that it takes only the fairly common 60-70 seconds for FSX to do its initial loading, with 11 seconds for SimConnect to get its act together:

60731 SimConnect_Open succeeded: waiting to check version okay

71854 Running in "Microsoft Flight Simulator X", Version: 10.0.61637.0 (SimConnect: 10.0.61259.0)

But then it seems the user is in the initial selection menu for at least another minute before a FLT is actually selected:

131915 C:\Users\Paul\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\klas.FLT

131915 C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\B737_800\Boeing737-800.AIR

During that time nothing else is running in any case -- the selection menu is modal, like most of the menu dialogues.

Then the flight, aircraft and local scenery takes a further 83 seconds to load:

214829 Aircraft="Boeing 737-800 Paint1"

That's more time in which no much else is running -- most of that is disk access I should think.

As you say, FSUIPC is only actually running for a few seconds, during which short time performance is excellent! ;-)

Pete

Sorry I'm a little confused are you saying everything is working good? I did noticed I downloaded the FUIPC from your web site again and yesterday ran it and it did seem to run better. I rarley have time to get to my comp thanks to my teenage daughter and Facebook. So that simconnect is working good right. Thanks again Pete.

Well, in the short (8 second) flight time you did for that log you averaged 46 fps which is better than I get even on my 4.6GHz i7-980X PC, and there are certainly no errors. But maybe your problems come later, after 8 seconds of flying?
