FSX-SE Install error Simconnect

Recommended Posts

I am having an issue installing FSUIPC into my steam version of Flight sim. I recently reinstalled windows 7, and have a fully updated os. I have already tried reinstalling flight sim, bot to no avail.

 

Windows 7

FSX-SE

Installation log:

A popup that says 
 
Your FSX installation is incorrect! The version of simconnect installed will not run FSUIPC4. You may need to repair the installation to rectify this first.

This is the second post showing EXACTLY the same problems with the FSX-SE installer.

 

1. It is not adding the installation details to the Registry, and

2. It is not installing SimConnect.

 

The first is overcome by you giving the path manually (but not all add-on installers will allow that), but the lack of SimConnect is disastrous for many add-ons, FSUIPC included.

 

Since it looks like these failures in the FSX-SE installer to get SimConnect installed is not an isolated issue I shall report this problem directly to DoveTail today.

 

Meanwhile, please see the following suggestions (copied from another thread on this very subject):

 

You could try running its SimConnect installer separately. It's the SimConnect.msi file in your

Steam\Steamapps\Common\FSX\SDK\Core Utilities Kit\Simconnect SDK\lib folder.

 

Whilst near there you might also want to install the three legacy Simconnect modules, as you'll no doubt one day encounter other add-ons which are more specific in their needs than FSUIPC (FSUIPC works with any version it knows about, it just prefers the latest one). You'll find SimConnect.msi installers in the

 

Steam\Steamapps\Common\FSX\SDK\Core Utilities Kit\Simconnect SDK\LegacyInterfaces folder.

 

Please remember to report the failure of SimConnect to install to Steam / DoveTail on the FSX-SE forum in the Steam interface.

Could you find the log (or logs) in your Steam\Logs folder, zip them up and send them to me (petedowson@btconnect.com), so I can send them to DoveTail? They don't know why this problem is happening.

 

Thanks

In addition to the logs in Steam\Logs, please include Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log

I had the same issue that ocured after reinstallation of my FSX Steam.

I just ran the simconnect installer from  ....\Steam\Steamapps\Common\FSX\SDK\Core Utilities Kit\Simconnect SDK\lib folder. Afterwards i was able to install my FSUIPC and got it working...

 

Thanks Pete! If you ever board my plane, beer is on me ;-)
