WideFS and External Apps Am I missing Something?


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have configured my Windows7 home network and installed WideFS in order to run my various applications on the client machine. I believe I have done this correctly. I start Wideclient on my Client machine and then I start up my various programs on the client such as Flight sim Commander. I then start FSX on my server/main fsx machine and after a minute or two the Client machine window changes from waiting for a connection to conection established. I can confirm this by going into FSC and connecting the GPS and it shows my aircraft displayed correctly in the location I have chosen when I start FSX on the server. So with that said I believe I have everything set up correctly however I can't seem to be able to get Active Sky Evolution or Squakbox4 to connect in the same way. Should I be able too? I think both of those programs connect to FSX via Sim Connect and I have been following the directions on ASE to configure accordingly but should I have too? Should WideFS be able to run these as well without going through and setting up the FSX SDK parameters? I'm a little confused?

Thanks,

Robert

Neither ASE nor Squawkbox4 use either FSUIPC or WideFS. You have to install SimConnect on the client PC and configure SimConnect on bother Server and client. I cannot really undertake to support SimConnect and those programs as well as my own -- you should find their instructions perfectly clear. If not please do try their support forums.

Note that a separately installable client version of SimConnect is only supplied with FSX Deluxe.

Regards

Pete
