FSUIPC 3.9X


Recommended Posts

I am running a registered version of fsuipc with FS2004 and two displays in full screen mode.

I am also running FSNav and vPar.

If I press alt/tab in FS2004 to go to the desktop I get an fsuipc error saying I have more than one application of fsuipc open and I should close one. FS2004 becomes unrecoverable causing me to have to close it and start it again.

The OS is windows 7 (64)

Has anyone else suufered from this error and is there a way to solve it.

Thank you

Brian

FSUIPC does not know anything about ALT TAB and wouldn't be able to provide such a message.

It sounds like the ALT TAB is causing FS to crash -- one typical symptom I seem to remember of video driver problems -- and it is getting automatically restarted whilst some of its threads, like FSUIPC, are still running and in memory. When FS crashes it sometimes loses al of its Windows but it still actually lurking in the background. The FSUIPC still left in memory cannot coexist with one being reloaded. You have to use the Windows Task Manager to forcibly terminate the crashed FS.

If you are trying to use ALT TAB whilst FS is running in full screen mode, I think this is certainly the problem. FS is quite precarious in that mode. Try running it in maximised Windows mode if you have need to occasionally switch to other applications.

Hi Pete,

I have attached an image to show the error received as mentioned above causing the PC to hang.

No error occurs when fsuipc is not installed on the machine.

There are no duplicate copies of fsuipc as mentioned in the error message.

Regards

Brian

I know, and i explained it in my previous message, to which I refer you now.

Your message actually contradicts itself, but if your PC is actually hanging instead of crashing to an error message, then it is most certainly a driver or hardware fault, as there is nothing in either FS or FSUIPC which has sufficient privilege to cause such a thing. I already pointed out that it is probably a video driver problem, and that tends to confirm it.
