Simconnect Problems


Recommended Posts

I am using FSUIPC along with other add-ons which use simconnect but I can't get them displaying in the Add-ons tab in FSX, only FSUIPC shows in the Add-ons tab. I have also been trying to get Squawbox working in order to use vatsim but it doesn't display in the Add-ons menu inside FSX and when I try to open it from outside FSX i get the error 'The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0150004). Click OK to close the application.' Below are my dll.xml, simconnect.xml, simconnect cfg and the layout of my simconnect files in winsxs in that order so you can have a look. I am running Windows 7 64-bit with FSX SP2.

I am using FSUIPC along with other add-ons which use simconnect but I can't get them displaying in the Add-ons tab in FSX, only FSUIPC shows in the Add-ons tab.

Do you know that they ought to have entries there? Not all SimConnect-started applications use the Menu system, and some that do have their own entries not in Add-Ons.

I have also been trying to get Squawbox working in order to use vatsim but it doesn't display in the Add-ons menu inside FSX and when I try to open it from outside FSX i get the error 'The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0150004). Click OK to close the application.'

That's a question for Squawkbox I'm afraid. I don't use it.

Below are my dll.xml, simconnect.xml, simconnect cfg and the layout of my simconnect files in winsxs in that order so you can have a look. I am running Windows 7 64-bit with FSX SP2.

Well, i'll have a quick look. The SimConnect.cfg file isn't needed, and shouldn't really be there, unless you are trying to use SimConnect over a Network.


<Launch.Addon>

[/CODE]

That entry looks okay. Is that DLL loading? Is it in the folder it says?

[CODE] <Launch.Addon>
<Name>FeelThere PIC737X v2 Helper</Name>
<Disabled>False</Disabled>
<Path>FeelThere\B737 v2\PIC737XH.dll</Path>
</Launch.Addon>[/CODE]

Same with that one.

[CODE]<Launch.Addon>
<Name>FsPassengersX</Name>
<Disabled>False</Disabled>
<Path>FsPassengers\bin\fspassengersx.dll</Path>
</Launch.Addon>[/CODE]

And that one.

[CODE]<Launch.Addon>
<Name>FSUIPC 4</Name>
<Disabled>False</Disabled>
<Path>Modules\FSUIPC4.dll</Path>
</Launch.Addon>[/CODE]

That's FSUIPC4, and you see that, so the DLL.XML file is fine to here, at least.

[CODE]<Launch.Addon>
<Name>Object Placement Tool</Name>
<Disabled>False</Disabled>
<ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
<Path>..\Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDK\SDK\Mission Creation Kit\object_placement.dll</Path>
</Launch.Addon>[/CODE]

That one needs checking. It's part of the FSX SDK. Did you enable it?

[CODE]
<Launch.Addon>
<Name>SquawkBox AI Control</Name>
<Disabled>False</Disabled>
<ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
<Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\SquawkBox\sbaicontrol10.dll</Path>
</Launch.Addon>
<Launch.Addon>
<Name>SquawkBox Internal Version</Name>
<Disabled>False</Disabled>
<ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
<Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\SquawkBox\sbmod10.dll</Path>
</Launch.Addon>
<Launch.Addon>
<Name>SquawkBox Transponder</Name>
<Disabled>False</Disabled>
<ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
<Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\SquawkBox\sbtrans10.dll</Path>
</Launch.Addon>

[/CODE]

Those three are all to do with Squawkbox, and look ok. check the folders etc.

[CODE]<Launch.Addon>
<Name>Traffic Toolbox</Name>
<Disabled>False</Disabled>
<ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
<Path>..\Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDK\SDK\Environment Kit\Traffic Toolbox SDK\traffictoolbox.dll</Path>
</Launch.Addon>
<Launch.Addon>
<Name>Visual Effects Tool</Name>
<Disabled>False</Disabled>
<ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
<Path>..\Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDK\SDK\Environment Kit\Special Effects SDK\visualfxtool.dll</Path>
</Launch.Addon>[/CODE]

And those are also parts of the FSX SDK.

Delete the SimConnect.xml file and SimConnect.cfg file. Without networking you dn't need them and you could be causing problems by having them there, incomplete as they are.

Firstly thank you very much for the quick reply. Fixed a few of the paths, everything else seems fine, and removed the SimConnect.xml and Simconnect.cfg files, but still only FSUIPC loads in the Add-on menu in FSX, with FSPassengersX loading with it's own menu in FSX. Also, sorry if it sounds like a stupid question, but what do you mean by enabling the FSX SDK, I have installed it if thats what you mean? Could this be an issue with my simconnect files in winsxs?

Thanks,

George

So, you have two loading fine. Are you actually expecting any of the others to have entries in the Add-Ons menu? Maybe they don't?

I'm sorry, but I don't know those products so I don't know what you are expecting. IO think you need to talk to their support, or at least check their documentation.

Also, sorry if it sounds like a stupid question, but what do you mean by enabling the FSX SDK, I have installed it if thats what you mean? Could this be an issue with my simconnect files in winsxs?

No, I only meant that the three SDK tools are not only installed, but enabled. If you aren't using them it would be best to disable them -- change the

<Disabled>False</Disabled>

line to

<Disabled>True</Disabled>

in each of the three relevant sections.

Regards

Pete
