running FSX on a second networked computer where WideClient.exe is running

Recommended Posts

Hi flying friends,


I would like to run FSX on a "slave" computer, using WidevieW to show an external view of the plane, which is flying on a main computer with P3D. I was told WidevieW was the good way to achieve this.



PC1 = P3D main view + ProSim737 System + FSUIPC

PC2 = 2 EICAS display (ProSim) + ProSimMCP (hardware connected: MCP from CPflight) + WideClient

PC3 = PFDs and NDs displays (ProSim) + SIOC (OpenCockpits overheads)


I try to run FSX on PC2, along with WidevieW, to get this external view. This computer has enough ressources. But I'm unable to start FSX when WideClient is running, because then I get the error "Microsoft® Flight Simulator is already running".


I tried to edit the WideClient.ini and set ClassInstance=1 but then the MCP module is not working anymore.


Is there a way to achieve this ? Someone can help ?


Thanks a lot on beforehand ! :)
