Flight Sim Commander 9 not working with shareware version of WideFS7

Recommended Posts

Hi Pete ,

I am writting this request on behalf of my neighbour.

He has installed Flight Sim Commander 9. It includes FSX and FS2004. Also, there is a FSUIPC4 module available.

He has three consoles, but in the Full-screen mode on Windows 7 he is not able to get one of the view (which I guess is the navigation map).

For this reason he installed a shareware version of widefs on a laptop, from where he is using the wideclient. He wanted to try the setup before buying it. I am providing the log output of FSUIPC below. I infer from the log file that both FSUIPC4 and WideFS7 are not registered. Also, in FlightSim I noticed that the buttons to activate these two modules are disabled. And the WideClient was not able to connect.

So, the question is whether the shareware version doesn't really work in the above setup?

And also, does he needs to buy both FSUIPC4 and WideFS7 or just WideFS7 to get this working?

WideFS cannot be used without registering, sorry. There is no trial or shareware version of it.

WideFS can, these days, be licences without requiring a license for FSUIPC.

Best regards,

Hi Ian ,

Thanks for your reply!

This means that my neighbour needs to only buy WideFS and not FSUIPC for his configuration. Can you please confirm?

Thanks in advance !

We had this discussion a while ago over a different issue and Pete confirmed that, while WideFS used to require a registered copy of FSUIPC, either/or can now be licensed individually. The only limitation is that if both are registered, the registrations must use the same user name (the e-mail address can be different).
