WIDEFS7 Question

Recommended Posts

John, Peter,

Can you tell me if I bought an extra copy of WIDEFS without needing to?

I had purchased WIDEFS along with FSUIPC5, at least I think it was and this version. Anyway, this purchase also registered and worked without issue into my FSUIPC6 purchase.

I purchased FSUIPC7 for MSFS and tried to use my reg key but I was told this version wasn't compatible, so I carried on and didn't give it a second thought.

When I needed the Wide client to connect to MSFS whilst attempting to get my flightdeck working in the sim, I tried again to register my version. This failed telling me it wasn't a valid registration key.

I went and purchased another copy of WIDEFS7 from SimMarket yesterday, and when inputting my new key, I was greeted with the same 'registration key not valid' pop up. 

Reading the user pdf, it mentioned about adding your key to the .key file, which is what I did and now I have the WideFS tab function within FSUIPC7. My question is, would I have had the same result, if I had entered my original WIDEFS7 key into the .key file, negating the need to purchase a second copy?

Kind Regards

Nigel

Yes! WideFS7 is compatible with FSUIPC4, FSUIPC5, FSUIPC6 and FSUIPC7. Unfortunately there is a no refunds policy on SimMarket. However, you could ask for a refund (as it is a duplicate purchase) and Pete may approve - WideFS7 is still with Pete so I cannot help with this. 

I'm not sure why your key would not validate via the installer though...

Note that you can now also run FSUIPC7 on a client machine. This is different than running WideFS on a client machine, as it would maintain a seaparate and distinct offset are to that held by the FSUIPC7 running on the FS machine. Details on how to set this up are provided here:

However, as you have a WideFS license (well, 2 now...!), you may as well continue with that.

Regards,

John

I will contact Peter to see if he feels generous.

Dont contact Pete for this. You need to contact SimMarket. They will then contact Pete for approval.
I will let him know to expect such a request.

P.S. I have just deleted your second post, as it was pretty much the same as this one....

Btw, could you please let me know your two WideFS7 order numbers. Just the order numbers please, no other details.
