Accredited key to connect to non-licensed FSUIPC?

Does 3rd party software connected to non-licensed FSUIPC's still require an accredited key, or is this a thing of the past (remember that FS-Interrogate used one).

Hi Pelle

That requirement was removed some time ago (don't remember when, but probably FSUIPC4 -- because it was assumed new applications would use SimConnect directly rather than indirectly through FSUIPC). The overhead of ennumerating all running processes to identify the caller for every offset access was becoming too much, especially with modern multi-cored CPUs. and folks running large numbers of processes.

We now just have to trust that makers of commercial products using FSUIPC will contact us first and agree an arrangement. Mostly that happened, but there are some notable exceptions.

I see, thanks Pete. I was initially thinking of targeting SimConnect for what I am doing, but FSUIPC seems a lot simpler, as I don't have to deal with different versions of SimConnect. Glad John is now keeping the "family-tradition alive", and you are still in the loop 🙂
