fsuipc registration


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have been reading and trying for days to get fsuipc4.703 installed and registered in prepar3d.

Fresh install of windows 7 ultimate

clean registered copy of prepar3d installed on D: drive

UAC is disabled

newest installer version of fsuipc4.703, run as administrator

Replaced fsuipc4.dll in modules folder with fsuipc4.dll version 4.714

Verified digital signature

verified computer date is correct

I would attach the log file but can not find it anywhere?

Most of the time that I run the fsuipc installer, it finishes saying everything is o.k and then instead of registration screen a window pops up saying fsuipc installer stopped working and program closes.

I recently got it to install and get to the registration screen (not doing anything different). I enter my details successfully and close installer.

Open prepar3d, go to add-ons, fsuipc is not registered?

Try to re-run installer, says my copy is more recent (because I replaced .dll file with 4.714) and stops installing

I am not sure what else to do?

It is in the modules folder, next to the FSUIPC4.DLL you said you put in there. If FSUIPC4 has ever run there will be a Log file, an INI file, and if registered, a KEY file., all named FSUIPC4 ...

There will also be an Install log.

Well, that's a first! I need for information for that.

This has been occurring more often recently, and is, I think, a result of a change in Windows security measures. It's a damned nuisance. But it certainly should not happen if you ereally have installed FSUIPC4 version 4.714 or later in the real Modules folder. The fact that you can't even find the Log suggests that you aren't actually looking in the right folder, so maybe you didn't put the DLL into the right folder?

No, it only refuses to replace a later DLL, it carries on doing everything else.

I am not sure what else to do?

I need to see the Logs which are most certainly there!

Pete,

Thanks for the reply, the file extensions were hidden. I found a .log file and .ini file in the modules folder but when I try and attach them to this reply it says I am not permitted to upload this type of file?

Thanks Todd

Thanks for the reply, the file extensions were hidden.

Vista and Win7 default that setting in Explorer, which is why I include instructions to change the setting in the FSUIPC Installation guide, under the heading

ADDENDUM: IDENTIFYING FILES IN WINDOWS EXPLORER

I found a .log file and .ini file in the modules folder but when I try and attach them to this reply it says I am not permitted to upload this type of file?

They are simply text files. Just paste their contents into a message.

Pete,

Below are the three log files. I tried the installer again and got a new error "fsuipc.dll signature check" . I checked the publishers list in internet options and "sim flight" is NOT listed in untrusted publishers.

I tried the installer again and got a new error "fsuipc.dll signature check" . I checked the publishers list in internet options and "sim flight" is NOT listed in untrusted publishers.

There are other possible reasons for that, including needed services not running in Windows (cryptographic, mainly), and security settings in the Registry being wrong. Please see the extensive advice in the relevant thread in the FAQ subforum.

One usually less likely reason for a signature check failure is either corruption of the DLL itself, or misreads from disk on some accesses. Now with the high reliability of today's hard disks I would normally say that was a very remote possibility, but considering the fact that every time you run the same, unchanging, program (the Installer) you get different results, there's something very very odd going on with your system, and it could either be disk access problems (i.e. errors created on the data transfers), or perhaps much more likely, faulty memory.

Installer for FSUIPC4.DLL version 4.703

The Installer log you pasted is incomplete. It should never end after

Installed version is later: it is not overwritten.

It should simply carry on and log the places it is looking for the Prepar3D.CFG file, so it can check and modify the DLL.XML file. Can you tell me what happened to stop it? Was this running "as administrator"? If not please run it again, but right-clcik on it and select "run as administrator".

This shows there is not even an FSUIPC4.KEY file. So you never actually entered in any of the Registration details at all?

Apart from that, the FSUIPC4.LOG shows that FSUIPC4 is correctly installed, that the DLL.XML file was updated, and it is working. So there MUST be a proper completed Install log.

There is absolutely nothing in the Installer which would cause it to run differently each time it is run. something is changing in the system which is messing it up, somehow. There is nothing complicated nor advanced in the Installer, it uses standard Windows methods to copy files and locate folders. It has worked on thousands of systems without any of the problems you report. I'd like to know what is so wildly different about your system. Are you sure the Windows installation is healthy, to start with?

With different results every time you run the Installer I have no way of even starting to diagnose the problems on your system. You need to be able to run it and get a consistent result, whether that be right or wrong, before I can get further.

Regards

Pete
