Why will Fsuipc not appear in FSX "add ons"


Recommended Posts

Why will FSUIPC4 not appear in my FSX "add ons" ??? I have squawkbox installed and it appears in the drop down. Also I require FSUIPC in order to use FSAcars which will not work wiyh FSX. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and checked various forums and can not get anything to work. I am using Win 7 as os, I also have FS9 installed on same drive and all addons appear and work in that FS.

Any and all ideas greatly appreciated. Have been working on this for at least 3 days with no luck yet.

Thanks Don

In the FSX Modules folder there will be an Install log file, and possibly an FSUIPC4 log file. They show exactly what is going on. Please show me them.

Also please always state version numbers -- make sure you are installing 4.60 or later. Nothing earlier is supported in FSX.

Okay. The reason for the problem is clear. You are using an original, buggy, un-updated install of FSX:

INSTALLATION FOR FSX:

AppPath="C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\"

Checking version of FSX.EXE:

... Version 10.0.60905.0 (Need at least 10.0.60905.0)

That's the original FSX release of September 2005. However, at some stage you or one of your add-ons has installed the SP1 version of SimConnect:

Checking compatibility with installed SimConnect:

Found SimConnect build 60905 (Original)

Found SimConnect build 61242 (SP1 May07)

FSUIPC4 likes to use the latest it can find (they work whereas the original doesn't, at least not well), so selects SP1. Unfortunately that version of SimConnect is not compatible with the origiinal version of FSX:

3635 SimConnect_Open succeeded: waiting to check version okay

15771 Exception 5 "VERSION_MISMATCH", Ref 1, Version 0.60905: Open: SimConnect Version incorrect!

FSUIPC tries then to revert to the older, buggy, version, but FSX is now rather bitter and twisted by it all:

The answer is to install the SP1 update for FSX.

I'd also recommend that you go further and install the SP2 update too -- it is far better. But run FSX at least once after installing SP1, then re-boot before installing SP2.
