Creating app having Connection faults

Recommended Posts

Hello

I am a newbie to the world of FSUIPC and to this forum so I apologise in advance for all the mistakes I will do in the use of this web space.

I have been playing with Flight Simulator since I was a boy and I recently decided to start building some tools on my own. After some research, I finally encountered the FSUIPC_SDK  packages and I was impressed by the potential of such a powerful tool 

So I came out with the idea of writing my first app, which is supposed to be just a replica of the "UIPCHello"  example but I crashed against two issues.

1st
I start FSX, I run UIPCHello.exe and everything is going well although the display message reports "Unkown FS version". Then I compile my project and the app does not connect to FSX at all as the "FSUIPC_Open" function returns false.

2nd
Hence, I  decided to try the 64bit version of the SDK and the "UIPChello64.exe" returns the message " IPC request contains bad data"

So, I can't understand what I am doing wrong and I ended up here asking for some help.

Thanks very much in advance 
Daniele

Very sorry, but the examples in the SDK are very dated, and depend on very old versions of the C/C++ Microsoft tools.

It's never been updated because there is a much better solution -- Paul Henty's .Net Client DLL. Almost all current developers interfacing to FSUIPC use that. it is a much tidier, slicker systen and works with all versions and all (or at least most) .Net visual Studio languages.

There's a Sub-forum of this forum above dedicated to this and worth perusing, but check http://fsuipc.paulhenty.com/#home

I had not clue about what to do, and I couldn't get were I went wrong , to be totally honest 😊

Thank you very much Mr. Dowson for such a quick reply. Please let me say that I really appreciate all your work and I would like to thank you for all you have done for the flight-simmers community !

I wish you a nice Sunday evening

Best Regards
Daniele
