FSUIPC menu unresponsive in FSX (SP2)

Recommended Posts

Hello Pete,


I've been using fsuipc since day one and today something I had never seen before happened. Apparently I can't access the fsuipc menu in FSX anymore. It is there, but when I click on it nothing happens. After that I always have to close FSX (SP2) via the task manager and actually kill the FSX app. I'm running Win7, keep all drivers updated and FSX is SP2, currently installed is fsuipc 4.939e.


I uninstalled, reinstalled, but nothing appears to fix this. Here's what's really weird, it apparently only happens when I'm starting a flight at European airports?!?! I know this makes no sense, but I've tried countless switching of airports in the US and Asia and the menu remains clickable, however, when switching (or starting a flight) to Europe, I get no response when clicking on the fsuipc menu item within FSX. I use fsuipc to monitor VAS and didn't use much at all, so I don't think it's a memory problem.


I'm at a loss and hope you can help me pinpoint this problem, so below please find my install and fsuipc logs. Let me know if you also need to see my dll.xml.


Thanks for your help in advance,

My apologies Pete, I thought I had done my research but evidently I hadn't. I found a user with a similar situation and did what you suggested regarding potentially corrupted weather files and deleted the wx files for my corresponding default flights and the wxstationstationlist.bin and voila!!!!


All is working fine again, and my beloved fsuipc works like it always has, like a charm!!
