error message, then FSX won't get to main screen

Recommended Posts


I have installed the new version (4.90), but when starting FSX, I get a message that says:

----------- Begin message I see ----------

Flight Simulator has detected a problem with a third-party

software program (add-on):

Name: PSUIPC4 DLL: FS new universal IPC interface

Version: 4.90

Company: Peter L. Dowson

File: Modules\FSUIPC4.dll

Do you want to run this software (not recommended)?

To avoid seeing this message...blah blah blah

----------End message I see --------------

If I click Yes, never gets past the initial banner. If I click no, I get main screen but of course no FSUIPC in the addon dropdown.

Here is my install log:
