Hi

When installing I always get the error message."Problem! Cannot edit the Prepar3D v4 DLL.XML file to activate FSUIPC.Please make sure you run Prepar3D v4 at least once before installing FSUIPC!".I use p3d v4.5.12.30293 with GSX, PMDG (777,747,737), FSCaptain 1.8.1 and Active Sky for P3Dv4.

Here is the text from the installer

Looking in registry for Prepar3D v4 install path:
     HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4
     Parameter"AppPath"
... >>>  OK! FOUND Prepar3D v4!  <<< ...
     AppPath=E:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\

Looking in "C:\Users\kai-r\AppData\Roaming"

Now checking DLL.XML ...
... Couldn't open or create the DLL.XML file!
Now checking for a SimConnect.XML file ...
... There is a SimConnect.XML, checking for "local" section.
... "local" section already exists, file not modified.
Looking in "C:\Users\OVRLibraryService\AppData\Roaming"
 ... No Prepar3D.CFG there

Cannot edit the DLL.XML file to activate FSUIPC.

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong.

Sounds like your DLL.xml file is corrupt - can you please post it and I'll take a look. It should be in C:\Users\kai-r\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\DLL.XML.

You also posted in the wrong place - I've moved your post to the support forum.

Hi.

That looks fine. I'm not sure why FSUIPC cannot find it - was it in the location I gave?

Presuming you have actually ran your current P3D version at least one, could you first try running the installer again.

If it fails again, you can try manually adding the following xml to the bottom (before '</SimBase.Document>') of you dll.xml file:

<Launch.Addon>
  <Name>FSUIPC 5</Name>
  <Disabled>False</Disabled>
  <Path>E:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Modules\FSUIPC5.DLL</Path>
</Launch.Addon>

Hi
I have it installed again as you wrote and it worked :). No idea what I've done wrong before. Thanks a lot for your support.
