Loading FSUIPC failure in FSX. Simconnect problem


Recommended Posts

Had no problem loading 3.99 into FS9. But when I try loading 4.70 into FSX I get this:

Installer for FSUIPC4.DLL version 4.756

Looking in registry for FSX install path:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator\10.0

Parameter"AppPath"

... >>> OK! FOUND FSX! <<< ...

Looking in registry for ESP install path:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft ESP\1.0

Parameter"AppPath"

Not there, so looking in:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft ESP\1.0

Parameter"SetupPath"

... NOT found! ...

Looking in registry for Prepar3D install path:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\LockheedMartin\Prepar3D

Parameter"AppPath"

Not there, so looking in:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\LockheedMartin\Prepar3D

Parameter"SetupPath"

... NOT found! ...

===========================================================

INSTALLATION FOR FSX:

AppPath="G:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\"

Checking version of FSX.EXE:

... Version 10.0.61472.0 (Need at least 10.0.60905.0)

Checking compatibility with installed SimConnect:

Found SimConnect build 60905 (Original), but this is not correctly installed!

Found SimConnect build 61242 (SP1 May07), but this is not correctly installed!

Found SimConnect build 61259 (Acc/SP2 Oct07), but this is not correctly installed!

... Failed to find a valid SimConnect needed to use FSUIPC4!

What, where is this simconnect? And how to fix? Recently had a Windows crash and had to reload Windows XP compleatly. Is that causing the problem?

What, where is this simconnect? And how to fix? Recently had a Windows crash and had to reload Windows XP compleatly. Is that causing the problem?

SimConnect is installed by FSX as part of the Windows "side by side" library system, in the Windows winsxs folder. It is essential for FSUIPC operation as well as a lot of other FSX add-ons.

Did you install FSX properly, including its updates, after re-installing Windows? I think the correct way it to install the base version, from the DVDs, run it once, then install SP1, run it once, then install SP2 or Acceleration. I suspect that if you omit to run it between updates something can get messed up.

If you have Acceleration, try just reinstalling that. Else try installing SP1 and/or SP2 again.

SimConnect problems are notoriously difficult to fix. Last time I had such problems I had to reformat my disk and reinstall everything.

Pete
