Problems with FSUIPC registration


Recommended Posts

I posted this same as a reply to a similar topic but obviously something went wrong and my reply doesn't show up. I'm sorry if this should be redundant.

After a hardware crash I had to migrate with FS9 to a new computer with Windows 7 64-bit. I copied the modules folder from a backup to the new installation. Then I run the installer for 3.99 and let the program detect the keys for FSUIPC and WideFS. The installer installed without a problem, said everything ok.

After starting FS9 WideFS cannot connect and the modules tap shows with FSUIPC that it is not registered and therefore only working with basic functions, WideFS doesn't connect.

So I installed again, this time I inserted the keys with copy and paste but no better result. Follow the log files:

So I installed again, this time I inserted the keys with copy and paste but no better result. Follow the log files

They look okay apart from the Registration not being seen in FSUIPC. I'm wondering if Windows isn't giving the Install_FSUIPC.EXE program the normal elevated privileges it accords installers. Can you re-run the Installer but this time right-click on it and select "Run as Administrator", and re-register once more. Let me know, please. This is rather worrying. I'm suspicious that there is some security setting or maybe a Windows update which causes programs with "install" in their names to no longer be accorded their needed privileges.

I tried that too, running the install as administrator, same result.

Another information I didn't mention before, because I didn't want to make this too complicated and believed it wouldn't be relevant: I had installed Windows 7 and FS9 on the same computer before but for some unrelated causes FS9 didn't work very well. So I formatted the drives and installed everything anew. The relevant point is I tried to install FSUICP on this first configuration too, and it didn't work at first with the same outcome like now, but then I used the modules tab in FS9 chose FSUICP and registered from inside FS9. That worked ok and I got it registered. But that was an older version of FSUICP. That way is now not possible any more.

That way did actually require FS to be "run as administrator" and then closed and re-run normally, which was awkward and should certainly not be needed. The Installer does actually call upon the EXACT same code inside FSUIPC.DLL to do the job.

I have just received confirmation from another with EXACTLY your problem and using the right-click "run as administrator" with the Installer most certainly worked for him, as it works here -- yes, with Windows 7 too. I am about to revise the Installation instructions to emphasize this. If it is really not working like that on your system I need to know more. Something you are doing is evidently not the same for some reason.

As I mentioned before I did run the installer as administrator but had the same result, no registration. But just to be sure, I tried it this moment again, didn't work.

I think with the stricter ways Windows works these days you can only run something "as administrator" if you are logged on as the PCs administrator. I've just done some tests with a Guest account on my Windows 7 PC and there is no way any program needing installation privileges can be made to run "as administrator" on that without a lot of complicated permission changes in User Accounts beforehand (using the admin account).

I've no idea why this has changed since this time last year, but I suspect it's down to some of the updates Microsoft has been pushing out.

I can't use the link you obviously added to your postwhen you edited it, interestingly I don't even see it in the forum, I only see it in the quote for the reply. Please could you post the link again?

Now I can read it, sorry it seems I loaded the forum into the browser, when the message was still loading from your side. I'm trying the diverse methods.

Thank you for the link. I tried them nearly all and the most complicated "option five" using the task scheduler to run the install-programm finally did the trick. I hope for you not everybody has to go that winding road to install FSUIPC 3.99

There's absolutely no difference in the 3.99 installer to the 3.98 installer, and it's only these last few days such problems have been reported. I really have no idea why. I'm just adding a check in the installer for the needed level of privilege so at least it tells folks up front that it won't work and to "run as administrator" (which so far has certainly worked for all but two users).

Interestingly again, the FSUIPC4 installer is also identical, yet (so far) there have been no similar reports for that at all.

The "option 5" you used is, according to all the technical references I've checked, the very same as simply right-clicking, selecting "run as administrator", then giving the appropriate permissions if UAC is enabled. It is supposed to be just a way of avoiding having to turn off UAC in order to stop the prompts.

It is all very mystifying. I'm starting to suspect that some folks have got something screwed up somewhere inside Windows, maybe one of the automatic updates messing things up. I assume you have automatic updates enabled (it is by default)? Have you installed Windows 7 SP1 by any chance? I've held off on that for now as I've read reports of problems it causes for some applications. Maybe mine is one of them. If you are on Win7 SP1 i shall have to do the update I suppose. :-(

Anyway, when I've got to the bottom of it I shall certainly try to make it easier, but meanwhile I'll have to just refer folks to that link, or reproduce its contents in the Installation guide.

Thanks for getting back about it.

Regards

Pete
