Prepar3D and W8 registration problem


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have buy the program yesterday by SimMarket , my computer is on Windows 8 and I run Prepar3D 1.4

When I run the FSUIPC4 installer I have this message :

"your FSX installation is not suitable for this version of FSUIPC

you may need to install an update from Microsoft no changes have been made by this program "

I click on " OK " the install seem working correctly and I have this message :

"FSUIPC4.DLL version 4.853 installed into Prepar3D okay !"

So I make the registration with my name / email / and my Key and i have this message :

"your registration has now been entered "

BUT when I run Prepar3D and go in the FSUIPC options and settings I read this :

"this copy in unregistered I will not provide full functionality "

and of course I do not have the full settings !

Can you help me please.

Please find both the FSUIPC4 Install log, and the FSUIPC4.log files, both in the P3D Modules folder, and paste their contents into a message here.

Also download the latest version of FSUIPC4 (4.859d) from the Download Links subforum and try that.

I have the FSUIPC4.log in the P3D Modules folder but not the FSUIPC4 Install log.

If there is no Instsll log, then the Installer couldn't have been run, or it crashed before terminating. Please run it again and re-check. The text which scrolls past on screen is the text which goes in the log. It contains essential information.

I have already try the 4.859d with no result.

But the log you supply shows 4.853. Why have you changed back to an older version? That makes no sense. The installer itself never overwrites a later version!

This shows no registration entered at all -- i.e. no FSUIPC4.KEY file in the 3D modules folder. It is just as if you have tried a manual install and never run the installer. Is there an FSUIPC Documents subfolder in the P3D Modules folder? Does it contain all the files detailed in the Installation document which was included in the ZIP? Did you follow the instructions and run the Installer "... as administrator"?

So far, it all looks like no installer has ever been run. Please clarify all of this.

Pete

I post both the FSUIPC4.log with Version 4.853 and 4.859d in my last post

Ok so i have deleted all the files and I have restart a new installation , run again the " Install FSUIPC4.exe " Version 4.853 with administrator privileges.

I have again the same message : "your FSX installation is not suitable for this version of FSUIPC

you may need to install an update from Microsoft no changes have been made by this program "

make again my registration (if you wish I can send you my SimMarket order and my Key)

I put again the 4.859d DLL in the P3D Modules folder to remplace the old one

So in my P3D Modules folder I have : the FSUIPC Documents subfolder( with 10 pdf and one zip ) ,the SimConnectP3D.dll and the FSUIPC4.dll

nothing more.

I run Prepar3d and check again in the Modules folder : now I have 3 more files : uipchist.bin , FSUIPC4.log and FSUIPC4.ini but no FSUIPC4 Install log

I post both the FSUIPC4.log with Version 4.853 and 4.859d in my last post

Ah, sorry. I didn't scroll down enough!

So in my P3D Modules folder I have : the FSUIPC Documents subfolder( with 10 pdf and one zip ) ,the SimConnectP3D.dll and the FSUIPC4.dll

nothing more.I run Prepar3d and check again in the Modules folder : now I have 3 more files : uipchist.bin , FSUIPC4.log and FSUIPC4.ini but no FSUIPC4 Install log

Without the Install log I cannot help much, because that contains all the details about what happened. There has never been an instance of the Installer running and not producing a log. Do you not see the text scrolling as it installs? That is the text which goes into the log.

Additionally, the FSUIPC4.KEY file, the only essential file for your registration, is also written tp the same place at the same time, when the Installer finishes.

I've a feeling that this is all to do with a bad previous FSX installation, though I've never heard of anything quite like it. Can you confirm that you NEVER had FSX installed on this PC? If you have had it installed, how did you remove it? If you deleted it but did not clean the registry, it may be this that is causing the odd message you are seeing and also losing the files -- maybe they are supposed to be saved in the FSX installation and then copied across (this is the normal action if you have both FSX and P3D installed.

Can you check the Registry, please? Look in these places:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator\10.0

and

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

If there are such entres, and have Keys called "SetupPath" or "AppPath", and these are no longer valid, that may be a problem. They may be telling the Installer there's an FSX installation still there. If there is not, or they are wrong, you should delete or correct them.

Meanwhile I'll experiment here with change my such entries so they are wrong, and see what the Installer does about it.

Well, it can't be that either of those entries are there and pointing to a non-existent installation, because I've tried that ands instead of the message you goy you get:

Couldn't obtain Version Info! Asking user to find FSX.EXE ...

followed by a prompt to find the FSX installation. The installer then corrects the registry for next time.

If the Registry keys are simply not there, the Installer goes on quite happily to install into P3D, no problems.

So ... the registry entries must be there AND are pointing to an FSX.EXE which is corrupted or unknown to the Installer. I'll try putting P3D's EXE in there and renaming it, see what happens ...

Okay ... that definitely generates the error ("Your FSX Installation is not suitable ...", which is logged in the Install log as:

!! WARNING !! This version of FSX is later than any known by this FSUIPC4.

There may be problems. Please check for a later version of FSUIPC4!

BUT the installer still creates the Install log and KEY file in the P3D folder.

So something is screwing up somewhere on your system only. Can you tell me anything about the P3D installation, the Registry and any FSX remnants or attempts to install FSX add-ons not fully intended for P3D? I'm wonderring if one such has made rather a mess.

If I can understand what is happening i can work out a way around it. So, please do this. Run the Installer again. When you get the "Your FSX installation is not suitable ..." error, click on the "Save As" menu entry in the Log screen behind it, and save the log somewhere. Then let the Installer carry on, but find the saved log and paste it here.

Regards

Pete
