Simkits UCC2 setup with msfs 2020 (32bit 64bit?)

Hello,

After quite some years I am planning to use my (old) simkits gauges/cockpit with msfs 2020.All worked like a charm on a windows vista PC back then.

However I am a bit confused if it is possible to use these gauges (made for a 32bit system) on a new to be bought PC in combination with msfs 2020.

As far as I've understood it should be possible (according to the phonecall I had with simkits),but their hardware (drivers) have not been updated to a 64 system.

 

Therefore I am hoping for your help!

-Does anybody had some experience with this?

-Do I need a second pc running windows xp/vista to install/run the drivers for the gauges? And what needs to be installed on this "slave" pc?

-Is it possible to use one pc running xp/vista (32bit) for the software needed for the gauges,and a second (new main) pc for running MSFS 2020?

-I guess I will need widefs to make this work,but will both systems work together with fsuipc7/widefs?

 

Thanks a lot for your help!!

32-bit software/drivers can still run on a 64-bit system, as long as whatever is talking to it understands that it is a 32-bit program...

I would just try it on a single system first. If you use/need FSUIPC, you can first try with a trial license, available in a sticky post at the top of this forum.

WideFS7 is compatible with FSUIPC7, if you want to go down the client PC route.

However I don't know anything about SimKits UCC2, so maybe other simkits users' opinion on how to get this working with MSFS would be more helpful. Maybe try the SimKits or Asobo forums.
