Fsuipc disables ezca and more

Recommended Posts

Everything was working fine till the other day.Yesterday, trackir stopped working. Today I noticed that ezca was not working anymore and that fsuipc was not accessible from the drop down menu. I removed fsuipc and ezca was working again.I installed fsuipc and ezca was not working anymore.I also noticed that with fsuipc installed even other menus from fsdreamteam scenery (coatl-powered products and addon manager) were not working anymore. If I remove fsuipc stuff works again. How do i get fsuipc to work ?

Thanks

Vic

P.S. I have fsuipc and widefs registered version.

Something changed then. What did you do to change the FS installation?

I use TrackIR and EZCA alongside FSUIPC. They are not related to each other, but they all use SimConnect. So it sounds like you have a SimConnect fault -- the fact that FSUIPC isn't appearing in the Menu confirms this.

Without any other information I'm afraid I cannot help. I need at minimum the version number of FSUIPC, the Install log and the FSUIPC4 log. The latter two are in the FS Modules folder. Make sure FS is closed first and paste them into a message here.

Hello Pete,

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling trackir , I updated GEX and I uninstalled and reinstalled fsuipc a couple of times-

Fsuipc is the version I downloaded this morning from schiratti.com.

I'm posting the logs you need.The uniregistered part is I did not enter my license info.

>Something changed then. What did you do to change the FS installation?

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling trackir , I updated GEX and I uninstalled and reinstalled fsuipc a couple of times-

And after that they no longer worked? Why did you do that in the first place?

Since things were running okay before, as you said, why did you reinstall things? Seems that mucked something up? And what do you think "uninstalling" FSUIPC entails? Just deleting the DLL and putting it back again can't change anything. You only way you can reset it, so it starts without all your settings, is to delete the INI file (or rename it).

>I use TrackIR and EZCA alongside FSUIPC. They are not related to each other, but they all use SimConnect. So it sounds like you have a SimConnect fault -- the fact that FSUIPC isn't appearing in the Menu confirms this.

Fsuipc menu is there I mean i can see it but if i click on it nothing happens.

Sorry, say that again. The AddOns menu contains what ... just FSUIPC? And it does nothing? Phew! Simconnect must be really buggered.

Fsuipc is the version I downloaded this morning from schiratti.com.

Sorry, so you were using a very out of date version before? Even the one on that site is nearly a year old.

The log you posted appears incomplete. Did you close FS down first. If not, please do so then post it again. The fraction it contains shows nothing out of the ordinary.

The only other thing I can think of, apart from a corrupted FSX installation, is that your EXE.XML and/or DLL.XML files are corrupted, or are loading something which is conflicting seriously. Could you therefore also paste those files into your reply. You'll find them in this folder:

C:\Users\Vicky\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX

They can be read into Notepad and cut and paste as text into a message here. Best enclose them in "code" parenthese (i.e. select them when pasted and click the <> button above, second from right is the series of icons there.

You could also try using the latest version of FSUIPC, 4.661, which is available in the Download Links sub-forum.

Pete

And after that they no longer worked? Why did you do that in the first place?

I uninstalled and installed the trackir software because it did not work anymore.I started having problems when trackir did not work no more.

Since things were running okay before, as you said, why did you reinstall things? Seems that mucked something up?

As above.I didn't do anything till trackir stopped working.

And what do you think "uninstalling" FSUIPC entails? Just deleting the DLL and putting it back again can't change anything. You only way you can reset it, so it starts without all your settings, is to delete the INI file (or rename it).

I removed all fsuipc instances not just the *.dll

Sorry, say that again. The AddOns menu contains what ... just FSUIPC? And it does nothing? Phew! Simconnect must be really buggered.

No the addons menu has lots of things. They all work except for fsuipc and the other 2 things I mentioned in my original post.

Sorry, so you were using a very out of date version before? Even the one on that site is nearly a year old.

No. I used the updated version till yesterday when I started uninstalling things.

Well something must have changed for sure. Maybe your hardware is playing up (memory or disk) and something got corrupted? With the symptoms you've described it most certainly sounds as if something is serious corrupted.

I removed all fsuipc instances not just the *.dll

"Instances" just being DLL, INI, KEY and LOG I assume you mean?

No the addons menu has lots of things. They all work except for fsuipc and the other 2 things I mentioned in my original post.

Okay. That's different to what I understood from your original report.

No. I used the updated version till yesterday when I started uninstalling things.

Er, which "updated" version?

fsuipc4 log.

If that's the complete log, with FS closed, then FSUIPC has hung. It seems not to be getting a response back from something it called. The log is incomplete.

BUT, and this is what I don't understand, the very last line says:

96736 Sim stopped: average frame rate for last 71 secs = 20.0 fps

which is logged when SimConnect says simulation is stopped, as when going into a Menu. This was after 71 seconds of normal running.

If this is due to you ending the session , then I'm rather puzzled as to what there's no final closing lines for the Log. I've not seen that before. If it is "well enough" to log the Stop, why not the line saying it is closed? It still really does look like it isn't the complete log and you still had FS running when you copied it. Can you check that, please? When you close, use the Windows task manager to see the Process list, see if FSX process is still there.

Regarding the DLL.XML file, could you try replacing it, just temporarily as part of the process of elimination. There's so many DLL add-ins that I'm sure there is a clash somewhere among them, and we need to find which so I can investigate further. So, rename the existing one, and save this in its place:

 &lt;?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252" ?&gt; 
- &lt;SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"&gt;
  &lt;Descr&gt;Launch&lt;/Descr&gt; 
  &lt;Filename&gt;dll.xml&lt;/Filename&gt; 
  &lt;Disabled&gt;False&lt;/Disabled&gt; 
  &lt;Launch.ManualLoad&gt;False&lt;/Launch.ManualLoad&gt; 
- &lt;Launch.Addon&gt;
  &lt;Name&gt;ObjectFlow_YMML.dll&lt;/Name&gt; 
  &lt;Disabled&gt;True&lt;/Disabled&gt; 
  &lt;ManualLoad&gt;False&lt;/ManualLoad&gt; 
  &lt;Path&gt;D:\FSX\ORBX\FTX_AU\FTXAA_YMML\Scenery\ObjectFlow_YMML.dll&lt;/Path&gt; 
  &lt;/Launch.Addon&gt;
- &lt;Launch.Addon&gt;
  &lt;Name&gt;Addon Manager&lt;/Name&gt;

One thing tho. I noticed there are entries for multicrewexperience and fskeeper. I uninstalled them both a while back .

Their uninstaller evidently does not update the DLL.XML. You'd need to delete these sections (I've already done so in the version above):

- &lt;Launch.Addon&gt;
  &lt;Name&gt;Multi Crew Experience&lt;/Name&gt; 
  &lt;Disabled&gt;False&lt;/Disabled&gt;

Hi,

I replaced the dll.xml but it didn't make a difference unfortunately.

If this is due to you ending the session , then I'm rather puzzled as to what there's no final closing lines for the Log. I've not seen that before. If it is "well enough" to log the Stop, why not the line saying it is closed? It still really does look like it isn't the complete log and you still had FS running when you copied it. Can you check that, please? When you close, use the Windows task manager to see the Process list, see if FSX process is still there.

I checked this too with task manager and even if I exit the sim properly fsx.exe is still running there.

Hmm. stranger and stranger.

Right, so it is hung.

I'm wondering if it is a problem with joystick scanning. Can you try setting the PollInterval in the [buttons] section of the FSUIPC.INI file to 0, i.e.

PollInterval=0

Though why this should affect EZCA and TrackIR too I don't know -- unless ... yes! They scan joystick buttons too don't they? Whereas probably nothing else you are using does. It could also probably explain why the FSUIPC menu won't open.

Here's my fsuipc4.ini. I tried with pollinterval but no joy :(

There's nothing else I can think of. It would help to know which thread is hanging -- you'd need debugging tools for that -- but it seems suspiciously like an FSX corruption to me.

Some last things to try, one at a time, as part of the elimination:

1. Remove the FSUIPC4.KEY file from the FSX Modules folder, so FSUIPC loads but does nothing other than interface to SimConnect.

2. Rename the FSX.CFG file (same place as the DLL.XML file), so that FSX loads with default settings

3. ... Oh, I can't think of a 3. I suspect it'd be reinstall FSX I'm afraid.

Pete

I did all you suggested but no go. What i find very strange is that when i moved fsx.cfg out of its dir ezca was working again for 20 seconds and then it stopped. If I get rid of fsuipc everything works fine!

I really didn't want to reinstall fsx.I got tons of addons it will take me for ever to install them again.

We need some way of finding out what's happening internally then.

Okay, let me think.

Just re-checking. As you haven't noticed that FSX was still running in the Task Manager process list, how have you been re-running FSX each time? You need to forcibly terminaste it from that process list if it is hung.

Check that FSUIPC still appears to hang with nothing else running. i.e. rename both EXE.XML and DLL.XML files so they aren't used, and run FSX without anything else. If the FSUIPC menu still doesn't appear, or FSX doesn't disappear from the Task manager process list, then:

Enable SimConnect logging.as described in the FAQ subforum thread on this. Run FSX till you are sure FSUIPC is hung. Force the close, ZIP the simconnect log (it should be very large) and send it to petedowson@btconnect.com.

That's a first step to getting more information.

Pete

Yes.I'd kill fsx.exe if it happened.

I moved exe.xml and dll.xml to another folder and started fsx.The addonmenu disappeared.There's nothing there.I will have to put them back and enable logging if I can figure out how to do it properly

Run FSX till you are sure FSUIPC is hung.

How do i know if it's hanging. ?

thx,

Please, try it with only FSUIPC loading, as I asked! After moving the EXE and DLL.XML files out of the way you should rerun the FSUIPC installer to generate its own DLL.XML.

BTW, please note those I've highlighted in RED, which seem to relate to modules you no longer have installed, or you've moved?

Incidentally, I'm truly amazed that FSX manages to work at all with all those additional modules installed into its process. I've never seen so many. In fact I never knew there were so many!

I'm afraid I'm out this evening, so I won't be able to look at the correct log until tomorrow. But please check it all out without ANY of that other stuff.

Hi Pete,

I sent you another log.

V

I'm testing again so i can send you a "better" log.Last night i was getting a weather.dll crash.I just deleted all the *.wx files and the saved flights and restested. I'm getting the same weather.dll crash somehow after the same 20 secs as before.I can see and access the fsuipc menu in fsx if I click on it before the 10-20 secs crash.After the10-secs crash it all freezes and ctds on me.

I'm sending you another log.

This is a good clue. I've seen this before but not for a couple of years. FS is crashing as soon as FSUIPC asks for the weather data. Why it hangs rather than crashes with all those other DLLs loading I don't know, but probably they are stopping the crash itself by getting in some sort of loop waiting for something which won't happen.

You have a corrupted file, possibly in a .WX file (though if you've deleted all of those it cannot be), or else maybe the "wxstationlist.BIN" file you'll find in the same folder as the FSX.CFG and EXE.XML and DLL.XML files. That file maintains a list of weather stations, and it is updated occasionally when FSX downloads weather from the Microsoft/Jeppesen website. My bet is that you had some bad data downloading, or it broke half way through updating it.

Try copying the default wxstationlist.bin file over the corrupted one. You'll find it in the FSX weather folder.

Pete

This is weird.I found the weather folder inside the Virtavia (addon) folder.Anyway the wxstationlist.bin in the main fsx folder was size 0.yes =.I delted it and copied over the one from the weather folder. Moved out the dll.xml and and exe.xml reinstalled fsuipc and launched fsx. This time the sim did not crash after 20 secs...but after 40 secs or so lol.

I'm sending you the log.

It is still the weather -- the last thing FSUIPC does is try reading weather. Then crash. Have you really deleted ALL of the .wx files? If the BIN file is okay and there's no weather loading I can only think it is FSX itself corrupted.

As the FSUIPC4 Advanced User's guide says, if you don't need FSUIPC to read or write any weather data you can set

WeatherReadFactor=0

in the INI file. But I really do think you need to consider repairing FSX itself.

I was thinking the same thing just now. Not sure if repairing is better than a complete uninstall+reinstall ? I will make sure I backup my fsx drive as soon as I installed it next time

Thanks for your help
