Why?

Sorry, but there's no way FSUIPC, with no settings made by you, does anything which can be related to which aircraft is loaded.

I'm afraid you supply no information which can be used to help. It sounds more like you have removed or corrupted something you shouldn't have. Why, exactly, do you think this is anything to do with FSUIPC?

BTW when updating ot new versions of FSUIPC there's NEVER any need whatsoever to delete anything beforehand.

I use FSUIPC to run a program called heliforce it makes the helicopter in FSX operate more realistically like a real helicopter , just before deleting FSUIPC from the FSX module folder I flew the helicopter with heliforce - FSUIPC  so I knew it was working ok . I then deleted  older version of FSUIPC   from the module folder and installed the latest version . Then right after that I ran FSX and that's when i noticed the black blank screen  problem with only the jet ranger and robinson helicopters .  Deleting FSUIPC is the only thing i did before i had the problem, but maybe as you stated i inadvertently removed or corrupted some thing  i shouldn't have .  thought  i was only in the module folder and it only had files titled FSUIPC . just for trouble shooting to see what would happen i did the same thing on another computer with FSX , heliforce and FSUIPC and no problems  .  thanks for your response,  if you have any suggestion please let me know ,  I read some place that if the FSX configuration files is deleted FSX will regenerate a new one, so i was thinking about trying that but note sure . Is some way to check for removed or corrupted files , thanks for your help

Why? Why delete anything? You lose your settings and anything else that programs may have installed there.

Okay, so something has gone awry with your first system.

1. If your just remove FSUIPC from the Modules folder, or rename it to, say, FSUIPC4.DLX, does the problem still happen? If so it isn't related to FSUIPC -- as I think you've proven by try your previous version again.

2. Does that "heliforce" program use or need FSUIPC?  Does the problem still occur without using it?

3. If it looks like being related to FSUIPC in any way, show the FSUIPC4.LOG file after such an occurrence. Also, if FSX is crashing, the crash details from Even Viewer might help identify where the problem is.

Yes, just like FSUIPC , deleting the FSX.CFG file will simply make it will make a new one with default settings. Apart from losing any settings you made it does no harm.

No, not really. Generally it is quicker just to re-install FS. There may be a repair option, but a complete install is generally better in the long run.

heliforce needs FSUIPC to work . but the Helicopters in FSX do not have to use heliforce or FSUIPC . to work . Yes i deleted FSUIPC from the FSX module Folder    and same problem , On my other computer with FSX and heliforce  i deleted all FSUIPC files from the FSX module folder and the helicopter still work ok. Yes i have looked at event viewer and i will take a closer look at it and yes i was also considering uninstalling and reinstalling FSX but only want to do that as a last resort as i will have to reinstall all my add on aircraft .  Thanks for your response and suggestion's
