FSC 9 will not see FSX drive on server (Solved by user)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have been using FSC 8 on a network computer for years and it has worked well. But recently I purchased Nav Data Pro and updated the data base in FSC 8.  That broke FSC 8.  So, I purchased FSC 9 and uninstalled FSC 8 and installed FSC 9 using "run as administrator" option as the manual states.  The problem I am having now is FSC 9 Database Manager cannot see the the FSX drive on the server.  FSC 9 does connect through WideFS though.  The network is connected and the FSX drive is visible from the client in windows explorer.  I have followed all these suggestions with no success:

 

"The Database Manager does not assume the settings of the Explorer.

The operating system provides the DBManager the settings if they are actually available.

But for Windows, there are sometimes problems.

Start Windows Explorer and click all mapped drives gradually to,
so that the files are displayed in the right part of the Windows Explorer shortly.

Only now emulate Windows network drives for some programming languages as local drives.

This applies to the FSCommander and for the FSCDBManager.


Regards,

Volker"

 

I am using:

1. FS X
2. FSUIPC ver 4.937  / WideFS ver 6.999
3. FS Commander ver 9.6.0.1 and Database Manager ver 9.6.0.0
4. Provider and period of the AIRAC Cycle= Navdata Pro ver 1023
5.Downloaded version from Simmarket Order Number 1264863.
6. Operating System Windows 7/64 on both computers.

 

Thank you for any help.

Hi Volker,

 

Thanks for the link.  I have checked the registry on both machines and the EnableLinkedConnections is set to a value of 1.  It is a mystery to me because the datatbase manager does see the other drive on the server.  When I check the sharing settings on both server drives, they are identical.

 

I ran the datatbase manager on the server and then copied the relevent files to the client to get FSC running.  I could also make flight plans that way if I can have two computers with the same registration key for FSC.  Is that allowed?  If so, I think I can live with this problem if it can't be solved.

 

Thanks,

 

Clarence

Hi Clearence,

 

Unfortunately, my answer via e-mail is not possible to your e-mail address.(see below)

My e-mail is no spam.

Here my answer.

 

Your network configuration is complicated to me.
Have you read the manual section 2.1 Database manager, paragraph Updating airports for FS X in a network?
Do you also copy the file scenery.cfg as described or you have the Scenery Library Network Tool (FSCFSXCFG.exe) used?

 

Regards,

Volker

Hi Volker,

 

I have read section 2.1 of the manual.  I have FSC working on both computers now.  I run the database manager on the server and copy the files over to the client after I run it.  And I make flight plans on the server and copy them to the client also.  So all is well.  Thank you for you help.

 

Sincerely,

 

Clarence

Clarence-

I am having the same problem with the DBManager not recognizing the server computer.  I've done everything under the sun to try to solve the problem, and rechecked my network 100 times but nothing works.  I read that you installed FSC on both computers, ran the DBManager on the server and then copied the relevant files to the program on the client.  I tried that but it didn't work.  Exactly which files did you copy?  I tried copying the folder that says "Database" but apparently that didn't work.  Thanks.
