Apps from SDK won't connect to FSUIPC v3.999z8 in FS2004


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

since I want to dive into programming for Flight Simulator 2004 via Delphi or Visual Basic, was browsing trough the SDK. With FSUIPC v3.999z8 installed in FS2004 (clean install), I tried some example-programs from the SDK, but they all don't seem to connect to FSUIPC. When I start, for example, the Delphi .exe (UIPChello) file, it reads "incorrect version of FSUIPC, or not FSUIPC".

 

I both start FS and the UIPChello with administrator rights.

 

Can you please help me? I can't figure out what i'm doing wrong here!

 

Greetz,

Does it read the version number and check it? I don't know either Delphi or VB, but the sources of the interface are provided in the package, so you can debug the code yourself using a Debugger. (I assume those languages have debuggers?).

 

You should also try using FSUIPC's ipc Read and Write logging, and of course FSInterrogate2, supplied in the ZIP, to check what is happening.

 

Perhaps you'd better show me the FSUIPC.LOG file. You'll find it in the FS Modules folder. Close FS down first so that the Log is complete. You can use the <> button above this edit area to enclose the text when you copy and paste it into a message.

There should be no need to do that. They just both need to be at the same privilege level.
