Is it possible to run SkyDemon via WideFS client? I have communication between the server and client machines and have configured WideClient.ini to open SkyDemon at run-time but no GPS data is being received.

I can run SkyDemon on the FSX host PC via FSUIPC and VSPE just fine.

Many thanks in advance.

Sorry, I've never heard of SkyDemon. I take it that it is a moving map driven by GPS data?

I can run SkyDemon on the FSX host PC via FSUIPC and VSPE just fine.

So it connects to a serial port (COMn), to receive GPS data? For that to work on a WideFS client you must configure FSUIPC to send it to WideFS and you need to add the GPS port details to the WideClient.INI file. What actually "opens" your application isn't relevant.

Hi Pete,

Thanks for the advise.

On the Client PC (Sony vaio laptop - Windows 7)

-----------------------------------------------------

I need to add the following to the WideClient.ini file

[GPSout]

Port=COM11

Speed=9600

I then used VSPE to 'pair' COM11 ===> COM12 and then pointed SkyDemon at COM12.

Success!

Many thanks
