FSUIPC does not work with FSX


Recommended Posts


Hi everyone,


 


I just recently updated FSUIPC to its newest version, 4.90. Since then, none of my add ons that require FSUIPC have been working, and I have no tab that says "add-ons" in FSX anymore. Everything worked great until I installed the updated version. 


 


Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong?

Just installing the update won't change that. Something else has corrupted your DLL.XML file. Try running the installer again. If still no joy, find your DLL.XML file (in the same folder as your FSX.CFG), and rename it so it won't run, and run the FSUIPC4 installer again.

 

If you have any other DLLs being loaded by SimConnect then the original DLL.XML file will need fixing. It's a text file, so you can paste it into a message here for me to look at for you.

I tried all of your suggestions with no luck. Here is my DLL.XML text for you:

 

Before I look at that, are you saying that when you rename or remove the DLL.XML file and rerun the FSUIPC4 installer, you still get no Add-Ons menu? If that is the case it seems likely that your FSX or Simconnect installation is corrupted. Can you check the FSX modules folder and see if there is an FSUIPC4.LOG file produced when you run FSX? If so, show it to me. If not, then FSUIPC4 is not being loaded.

 

In the DLL.XML file you show there apeears to be corruption in several lines:

  <Launch.Addon><Name>Addon Manager</Name><Disabled>False</Disabled><ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad><Path>bglmanx.dll</P

should be

 

<Launch.Addon>
  <Name>Addon Manager</Name>
  <Disabled>False</Disabled>
  <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
  <Path>bglmanx.dll</Path>

and

 <Launch.Addon><Name>FS Recorder</Name><Disabled>False</Disabled><ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad><Path>C:\Program Files\FS Recorder for FSX\FSRecorder_FSX.dll</Path></Launch.Addon>

should be

 <Launch.Addon>
   <Name>FS Recorder</Name>
   <Disabled>False</Disabled>
   <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
   <Path>C:\Program Files\FS Recorder for FSX\FSRecorder_FSX.dll</Path>
 </Launch.Addon>

The FSUIPC4 entry is fine.

After a second attempt at reinstalling FSUIPC with the original DLL.XML renamed, I do have the add-ons menu in FSX. The first time I tried FSX ended up not responding after a few minutes. My computer just decided to act up, I guess. But with my original DLL.XML renamed, the add-ons menu item is there. 

 

I fixed the DLL.XML lines as you suggested and here they are again, just to make sure everything is OK there now:

Lastly, I do have an FSUIPC4.LOG file, I believe. Note that this is the log created when I started FSX while the original DLL.XML was renamed. Here it is:

If you need to see the log from starting FSX with the original DLL.XML, please let me know.

Okay. Good.

 

I fixed the DLL.XML lines as you suggested and here they are again, just to make sure everything is OK there now:

 

There's a

 

  </Launch.Addon>

 

line missing after this line:

 
<Path>bglmanx.dll</Path>

 

otherwise it looks okay.

 

If you need to see the log from starting FSX with the original DLL.XML, please let me know.

 

No. and the log you have shown proves everything else is okay.
