Space in custom FSUIPC folder


Recommended Posts

Hello John and Peter,

 

I have renamed my FSUIPC folder to get my addons better sorted. In my case it is now "0AA - FSUIPC7"

 

The result is now, that the new FSUIPC and MSFS shortcut does not work, because the path in your MSFSwithFSUIPC7.bat is now:

start "" F:\MSFS2020\Community\0AA - FSUIPC7\FSUIPC7.exe

 

where 

start F:\MSFS2020\Community\"0AA - FSUIPC7"\FSUIPC7.exe

would be right.

 

I know, simplest way would be in my case to rename my FSUIPC folder (or edit yout bat), but maybe you could take care of this to avoid confusion for other users?!

 

 

And could the starting animation with the dots be skipped? Why do we need it?

 

many thanks

Günter

You shouldn't do that. It will create problems and a mismatch between your installation location and your registry settings, and the uninstaller won't work.

If you want to change the directory name, simply re-install to a new folder, then move any required files across ()e.g. .ini, key), and then remove the old folder.

Ah, so you did re-install?  Ok, I'll add quotes around the start command, although should be:
    start ""  "F:\MSFS2020\Community\0AA - FSUIPC7\FSUIPC7.exe"
Can you try that please.

Remove the splash screen, or just the animated dots?

I've added this as when you start MSFS you see nothing for around 30 seconds before the MSFS screen is displayed.
You can edit to remove the splash or the animated dots, to suite your needs.
