fsuipc 4 not intercepting simconnect menus

Recommended Posts


I just needed to reinstall my entire system. After installing FSX and FSUIPC 4.975A, I can't get interception of simconnect menus to work.

I have the line "NewInterceptTextMenu=Yes" in my fsuipc4.ini file in the General section. 

Here is the log from starting fSX. Note that it says the menu intercept option is off. What am I missing here?

Please show us your INI file. 

The usual reason for such a message is NewInterceptTextMenu missing or set incorrectly. Otherwise it has to be a corrupt or incorrect FSX API.DLL module.

I didn't realize that the simconnect services required a registered FSUIPC.

FSUIPC is using SimConnect all the time anyway, to maintain the data in the offsets. The unregistered FSUIPC is useful fo many applications which use these facilities, and can also be useful for it's logging facilities, but offers no User-oriented facilities. For those a purchase is needed. The documentation does explain this.

Any, glad you solved it by yourself. Mind you, I should have notice d that it wasn't a registered install, from your Log, where it clearly stated:

FSUIPC4 not user registered

Apologies for that!
