jhkaye Posted January 15, 2011 Report Share Posted January 15, 2011 I've been trying to get FSUIPC4 and WideFS installed on a Dell XPS Gen4 running under Windows XP. The goal is to use it as a network client connected to an Alienware Aurora system running FSX under Windows 7 Home Premium. If successful I hope to run an add on called Plan-G on the client, which will display a moving map. This will allow using the monitors on the Aurora to display instrument panel and outside views while flying. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to get SimConnect to work to do this. An alternative is to use FSUIPC on the Aurora and XP computers, which should work according to the Plan-G manual. However, although I have installed FSUIPC, it does not appear in the FSX menu. It does appear on the menu for the Aurora, however. The following is the FSUIPC4.log file ********* FSUIPC4, Version 4.60a by Pete Dowson ********* Reading options from "E:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Modules\FSUIPC4.ini" Trying to connect to SimConnect Acc/SP2 Oct07 ...

I recently replaced the hard drive on the client Windows XP machine and reinstalled FSX. The log indicates there may be three versions of SimConnect, but apparently none of them have the correct version number. Jim Kaye Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
