Connecting GPS to FSX Brings Up Blue AFIL Screen I Cannot Close

Please can anyone help?

I have been using FSC for quite few years without any problems - until now.

Having had to reinstall FSC 9.2.1, I am now finding that I cannot connect through GPS to FSX. Each time I try, I get a full blue Window screen with the compass showing in white and the word AFIL in the centre and co-ordinates at the bottom of N00 00 00 and E000 00 00. Also a message: "No GPS-Data from Simulator available! Connection to Simulator terminated!"

How might I be able to clear this problem?

Thanks in advance,

Michael

Hello Volker,

Please accept my apologies for not including all the required information. This is as follows:

1. FSX

2. FSUIPC version 4.827

3. FS Commander & Database Manager version 9.2.1 Net (Build 28-July-2012)

4. This download version from your website (Original download from the simMarket website - Order No. 677211)

5. Operating System: Windows 7 64

Regards,

Michael

Good Morning Volker,

Thank you for your advice but, unfortunately, it has not solved the problem for me. I installed the FSUIPC4 (version 4,853) as administrator and I had also installed FSCommander as administrator. I have now tried going back to basics and done the following:

  • Cleaned up my PC's Registry.
  • Reinstalled FSUIPC4 (version 4,853) as administrator.
  • Opened FSX and confirmed that it was showing the correct FSUIPC4 version.
  • Uninstalled and reinstalled FSC9.2.1 as administrator on my external E drive as E:\FSC9.
  • Ran the FSC Database Manager; opened FSC which showed the Map view.
  • Completed the Registration process.
  • Tried all the Menu buttons in FSC and these correctly showed all the dropdown sub-menus.
  • I then opened the GPS and clicked on "Connect to FS" which changed the map view to a full blue Window screen with the compass showing in white and the word AFIL in the centre and co-ordinates at the bottom of N00 00 00 and E000 00 00. Also a message: "No GPS-Data from Simulator available! Connection to Simulator terminated!"

Please could you suggest any other changes that might solve the problem?

Kind regards - and thanks for your continued help.

Michael

Good morning again Volker,

After sending the last message it occured to me that I should try building a new normal flight plan. When I did this, and clicked on the departure airfield, the blue AFIL map disappeared and I was back to the deault map view showing the new flight plan. However, when I try to Connect to FS I am still told that there is "No GPS-Data from Simulator available!"

Kind regards,

Michael
