Virtual Fly TQ6 issue with FSUIPC


Recommended Posts

Hi Pete

Just bought a TQ6 and decided to calibrate the throttles with FSUIPC to get the reverse thrust as recommended by vendor. I am runnng P3D v4.5 and it was running fine. I purchased FSUIPC 4.5.12.30293 and installed it. I then ran P3D v4 but instead of getting an opening screen, it opened with an airplane at the starting gate. Above it said waiting for client. I opened FSUIPC and desabled Wide thinking that was the problem but after closing and restarting, same problem. A sign popped up for about 2 seconds saying something about a previous FSUIPC but no time to read it. As far as I know, there was no FSUIPC module in V4 of P3D. Below is the install log.  

A few years ago I used FSUIPC but not lately. Could there be an old version or .dll around that would cause this ? If so, where would I find it?

4.5.12.30293  is the P3D version number. The latest version of FSUIPC5 is 5.152. Your log indicated that you are using version 5.112 - this is quite old and no longer supported, please update to the latest version.

This is not related to FSUIPC5. Do you not have the P3D option 'Show Scenario Startup Screen'  selected?

P.S. You posted in the FAQ section. I have moved this post to the Support section - please post all support requests here.

FSUIPC5

Thanks John, I did a dummy. I downloaded the 5.151 version (latest at Simmarket) moved it to my temp file then selected an old FSUIPC. I deleted the module from P3D v4 and installed the correct version. Yet, I am still having issues. A sign pops up at when I close the simulator that says a second or previous copy is still running. I can not see where the additional copy would be located unless it is an old .dll from years ago that is causing the problem. Is there any way I can clean P3D of all remaining FSUIPC  elements so I can get a clean install? 

The issues I mentioned vary. today, the brakes on all the aircraft were set in park so I could not move the aircraft. The normal "." or CTL+.  have no effect even if I release the parking brake in the aircraft. That was not an issue yesterday. Several other issues continue. I had issues a few years ago which caused me to delete the module. Seems my mistakes caused another. How do I proceed to get a clean install.

Thats very strange...I don't think its possible to have two copies of FSUIPC running...

Maybe check (or post) your DLL.XML file (in your AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar 3D vd folder) to make sure there is only one entry for FSUIPC5.

Thats strange - it should be 5.152. I'll check and update - thanks for pointing this out.

You can always get the latest versions from our download page over here on simflight:

This all sounds very strange, especially if you have new issues and nothing has changed...

Try removing FSUIPC completely and check P3D is working ok. To do this, rename your 'Modules' folder and remove the FSUIPC entry in the aformentioned DLL.XML file -  this section:

 

Quote

  <Launch.Addon>
    <Name>FSUIPC 5</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <Path><your path>\FSUIPC5.dll</Path>
   </Launch.Addon>
 

Save the file and restart P3D. If all is ok, download FSUIPC 5.152 (from the link above) and re-install. You don't have to register again - copy your key file from your old (renamed) Modules folder to the new one. You can also copy across your ini file if you have anything there you want to keep.

Cheers,

John

in relation to FSUIPC error error message: You might have a double entry in DLL.XML file, located in in C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\

Check that file.

That’s probably left over from when you started the sim and would occur because you inadvertently started P3D twice in quick succession. The second one would have got that error and that copy of P3D would have been closed. It can’t have been from the session you just used as the error is followed immediately by a P3D closedown.

The only other time you can see that is when trying to start the sim when a previous session has not prperly terminated.
