no addons on the menu bar


Recommended Posts

okay i just bought fsuipc4 so am new to it. i tried to install it last nights everything went well, it installed okay all hope up but when i started a flight there was no addons on the menu bar. i tried reinstalling numerous times with no luck. and so i came into this forums for some help. looking at other posts from the same topic i found that i might correct it by going to the (DLL.XML)file but i couldnt find it anywhere.

so what should i do?

Hi,

Please try the latest version of FSUIPC.

Yes, it is. You click on the .exe file and the installer does the rest.

the installation of this program is not as straight forward as it looks like on the guide :(

Really? In what way?

If there's no add-ons menu then you either have a broken SimConnect installation (i.e. your FSX installation is incorrect), or some other add-on installer has made a mess of your DLL.XML file.

Please use a supported version of FSUIPC -- nothing earlier than 4.60 can be supported.

From the posted Installer log I also note this:

Checking version of FSX.EXE:

... Version 10.0.60905.0 (Need at least 10.0.60905.0)

Checking compatibility with installed SimConnect:

Found SimConnect build 60905 (Original)

Found SimConnect build 61242 (SP1 May07)

which seems to indicate that your FSX is only in its original buggy version (60905) yet you've have the SimConnect from the SP1 update installed. This will cause problems as the SP1 SimConnect is not compatible with the original FSX installation.

Regards

Pete
