I recently installed FSX and installed FSUIPC4 and was to go to the toolbar in FSX to apply the setup for the CH Yoke and Trottle Quadrant. However, I have looked high and low for "Add Ons" in a tool bar but I don't see it anywhere. I have tried to hit the ALT key and the ALT key + ENTER still I have nothing. I am assuming that the toolbar is the list on the left of the screen. It is the only thing that is there that looks like a tool bar. I have even tried to uninstall and reinstall the complete software with SP1 and SP2. I have Windows 7 64 bit 8gb Mem 4 core processor. FSUIPC4 Ver 4.60a. NEED A LITTLE HELP AND GUIDANCE.

I recently installed FSX and installed FSUIPC4 and was to go to the toolbar in FSX to apply the setup for the CH Yoke and Trottle Quadrant. However, I have looked high and low for "Add Ons" in a tool bar but I don't see it anywhere. -SNIP-

It seems that the overly protective features of Win7 have "bitten you" here.

You need to have an entry in your dll.xml file that looks like this:

  &lt;Launch.Addon&gt;
        &lt;Name&gt;FSUIPC 4&lt;/Name&gt;
        &lt;Disabled&gt;False&lt;/Disabled&gt;
        &lt;Path&gt;Modules\FSUIPC4.dll&lt;/Path&gt;
    &lt;/Launch.Addon&gt;

FSUIPC normally creates that entry when it is installed but I'm guessing that this was

prevented from happening by the Win7 UAC setup.

You might try uninstalling FSUIPC and then install it by right-clicking abd selecting

"Run as administrator" or words to that effect (I'm booted into Xp right now so can't

check the exact wording).

The dll.xml file is a text file locating in the same location as the FSX.cfg file. The path

will be something like "Documents and Settings/<user name>/Application Data/Microsoft/FSX"

You can check to see if the dll.xml file exists. If so, check to see if the entry has been

made as I showed above. If not, add it using Notepad. It can go at the end of the file,

just ABOVE the line:

&lt;/SimBase.Document&gt;

With Win7, you should always use the "Run as administrator" option when adding FSX addons

and FSX itself, for that matter. This will prevent SOME of the Win7 "over-protection"

activities from inhibiting your changes/additions.

Hi Paul:

I'm not sure if I am looking for the "Add Ons" menu item in the right place. I see on some screens that it is down the left margin and then on some it is across the top. On the margin it has Home Settings Multiplayer, etc. across the top it normally just shows Home and Back. I have posted all Updates SP 1 and SP 2 for FSX.

I uninstalled FSUIPC4 and removed the dll.xml file. then I installed FSUIPC4 again using "Run as Administrator" . I still do not have anything I can see that states"Add Ons". I checked the DLL.XML file. It was replaced as follows:

This file is located C:\Users\WayneF\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX\DLL.XML with 4 or 5 other files.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252" ?> - <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>dll.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> - <Launch.Addon> <Name>FSUIPC 4</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>Modules\FSUIPC4.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document>

Hi,

Start a flight in FSX.

Sit in a cockpit at any airport.

Press and hold the ALT button.

At the top of the screen the Menu Bar will appear.

At the very right should "Add-Ons". Click on that and in the drop down menu FSUIPC should appear.

Hi Paul:

That does it. Menu and all including the Add On menu. It had probably been there all the time. All of the write ups I had in various instructions mentioned to hit the ALT key and one even said that You should also hit the ENTER while holding the ALT key. But none ever said to select an Airport and start a Flight. I have been chasing this rabbit for the last two days.

But you have come through like a Champ. I knew it had to be something simple.

Many Many Thanks

Your Friend for Ever

That was Jim's post that pointed you to the correct location and procedure for viewing the menu bar :)

After reading your 2nd posting and seeing your dll.xml file, I was about to post something similar :)
