Is this on a new PC, or after a complete Windows re-install? If not, how did you remove the previous install of FSX? Most methods leave the SimConnect side-by-side system is an unrepairable mess, and if so then this would explain why it won't work. When I tried this on a Win7 system the only way out was to reinstall Windows first. With WinXP it was possible to get it sorted by Registry editing, but that was also a long and compicated job!


Why are you using the FSUIPC4 Loader? Did you not read the Installtion instructions?


Did FSX ask you for permission to load FSUIPC4? If so what did you answer? Check the [Trusted] section of the FSX.CFG file for FSUIPC4 entries and if there are any, delete them.


Is there an FSUIPC4.LOG and/or FSUIPC4.INI file in the FSX Modules folder? If there's a LOG show it to me.


Try this:


1. Delete the DLL.XML file -- you know where it is, as you posted it (in an odd format with no new lines) above. ***

2. Delete the FSUIPC Loder DLL from the FSXModules folder

3. Re-run the FSUIPC4 installer.


If this doesn't help, enable Simconnect logging as described in the FAQ sunbforum thread, and try again. Show me the SimConnect log so produced.




*** This is what the DLL.XML file you posted should look like. I suspect that whatever editor you used to cut and paste it corrupted the format. Be careful with that!
