OS Question

Recommended Posts

I have a registered version of FSUIPC, and am considering buying WideFS in order to link two PCs together for use with P3D.


However, the older PC is running Win XP, whereas the newer one is running Win 7/64.


So my question is - will WideFS run in this environment?

Yes, provided only the Win XP version is at least at SP1 update level.


You will probably find that the Workgroup names are different -- Microsoft changed the default names between XP and Win7. You either need to make them the same, or edit the client parameter file (wideclient.INI) to provide it with the FS PCss IP address or name, and the Protocol you want to use. Read the section in the WideFS doc about configuring your network.
