FSUIPC 5 disables Ezdok v2 ?

Recommended Posts

Hello Mr. Dowson,

Yesterday I came back from my 2 week vacation and wanted to play some P3D v4. Everything was working fine before ( I use windows 10 with bitdefender but never had problems with it ). Before playing I found out about FSFX 777 Immersion so i bought it. Upon download it required from me to download FSUIPC, so i downloaded the latest fsuipc 5 5.103 ( unregistered version). After that i start p3d v4 and noticed that EZDOK v2.5  wasnt working anymore. I open ezdok  which starts along with p3d and it says connecting with simconnect. After 3-5min it says application getting initialized or something like that. I am not sure if its fsuipc fault or if its just a coincidence that it happend the same time i downlaoded fsuipc. As FSUIPC is shown in the drop down menu in p3d i am not sure if it is a simconnect issue. I will try to get in contact with EZDOK aswell. U will find the FSUIPC LOG ,.... below.

I am sure that EZDOK does not use FSUIPC, and FSUIPC most certainly has nothing to do with EZDOK. You need the EZDOK support forum.

Furthermore, as your FSUIPC is not even registered it is really not doing anything except using SimConnect to populate its offsets. These are all data requests made during initialisation, and then left to SimConnect yo supply updated data as it occurs.

FSUIPC may also be servicing other applications, if you have any.  I suppose it is vaguely possible that other applications interact with EZDOK.

One thing I do notice is that your P3D is being allowed to run at an unnecessarily high average of 144 fps. I'm wondering if this is simply not allowing any time or processor power for EZDOK (or anything else) to do much. Try limiting the frame rate -- at least to your screen's refresh rate, lke 60.

My Monitors refresh rate is 144 hz. Should i still limit the frame rate 60 ?(I have a pretty powerful pc with an 17700k).

It's worth a try.

If simconnect should be the problem what can i do to fix it? 

Sorry, but I've no idea what parts, if any, EZDOK uses.  Maybe it needs updating for P3D v4? You really need EZDOK support.
