FSUIPC6 nor seeing the Profiles

Recommended Posts

I am having problem in making FSUIPC6 to work with P3D v5. I have installed FSUIPC6 following the instructions and in P3D I can access FSUIPC GUI but the profiles are not working.

Previously, using FSUIPC5 and P3D v4.5 I had profiles of various aircrafts in a sub-folder "Profiles" under the "Modules" folder of P3D and everything worked fine. So after installing FSUIPC6, I copied the Profiles sub-folder to my FSUIPC6 installation folder "C:\Users\mathu\Documents\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons\FSUIPC6". But when I run P3D and open the FSUIPC GUI then the profile of the active aircraft does not show up.

So how can I fix this problem please - thanks.

Did you also copy your FSUIPC5.ini to your new installation folder and rename it to FSUIPC6.ini?

Could you attach your .log and .ini files and I'll take a look.

I see you are using OneDrive. This may be causing issues Could you try re-installing to a folder outside of your Documents folder. The Documents\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons\ folder should really only be used to hold the FSUIPC6/add-on.xml file anyway.

Just re-run the installer and select a different folder (e.g. C:\Prepare3D Add-ons\FSUIPC6). This will also uninstall FSUIPC6 from its current location. You will need to move your files (.key, .ini, .lua, .mcro, etc) and folders across to the new installation location afterwards.

No, that did not help. However, what I found that for some reason FSUIPC6 changed the assigned letters for some of my controllers (I had "AutoAssignLetters=Yes" in the INI file carried over from FSUIPC5). I have a yoke and a joystick (which I use for the taildraggers and helicopters). So FSUIPC6 switched the assigned letters between the yoke and the joystick. So now I have set it to "AutoAssignLetters=No" and now everything works fine.

Thanks for your help.

No, FSUIPC follows the GUIDs. Sometimes Windows will assign things differently. This normally only happens after a re-install, but also occasionally because different USB sockets are used.

The Autoassigning action operates when a new device (additional ID number and/or GUID) appears, as when you add devices.
