Recommended Posts

Hello Paul,

Since I have switched to FSUIPC V6.0.3 (payware) but not the Sim (Prepar3D® v4, Version: H2

Return FSUIPC V6.00000

@Paul Henty @John Dowson

 ' check fsuipc version
            Dim literal As String = FSUIPCConnection.FSUIPCVersion.ToString()
            Dim substring As String = literal.Substring(0, 1)

Hi Fred,


Return FSUIPC V6.00000

Is that from this line?


The ToString() function is formatted to 3 decimals, so I can't see how you can get 6.00000.

Can you please check the values of:



Or is it from this line?

Console.WriteLine("FSUIPC V: {0}", substring)

Your 'substring' variable only contains the major version.

Hi Paul,

In FrMain with FSUIPC V5.X no problem I don't have change the code
Now with FSUIPC V6.0.X I see 6.000

Value of literal of course not substring The app return the good value with the function

I think it's in your dll




But I make a quick test again

is returning 3?


Nope it's the web response

For your test

Console.WriteLine(String.Format("Major {0} (Minor {1}, Number {2})", FSUIPCConnection.FSUIPCVersion.Major.ToString, FSUIPCConnection.FSUIPCVersion.Minor.ToString, FSUIPCConnection.FSUIPCVersion.Number.ToString))
Major 6 (Minor 0, Number 6)

 Think there is maybe a discrepancy as the IPC version number is 6003 (maybe should be 6030). With the FSUIPC6 release, I am trying to change the visible version number to the format <major>.<minor>.<patch><addedLetter for internal release>, but keep the internal numbers as they are. The patch level uses the last two digits so that I can go above 9 in the visible version. Maybe I've specified this incorrectly, I'll check sometime next week.


P.S. Major should be 6, minor 0, and patch/number should be 3 (with latest release). Will check the offsets later.
