MSFS 2020 on multiple computers


Recommended Posts

I am not sure this is the correct space to post this question.  but...  I am fairly new to the hobby and have been trying to build a 737 cockpit.  In addition to FS2020, I have also purchased FSUIPC.  I have two computers, both of which have 3 each displayports on the graphics card.  How can I run FS2020 on two computers so that I can run the Capt. monitor, Upper EICAS monitor and F/O monitor (etc.) on the second computer?  is FSUIPC and WideFS7 what I need to do this?

Thanks so much for any help!

If you only have one MSFS license, you can only run one copy of MSFS at a time. I guess if you have two license you could run two copies, but they would be independent.

I am not sure what those programs are that you want to run on a second computer. If they are FSUIPC client applications, then you can achieve this by using WideFS7, or also now by running FSUIPC7 on the second (client) computer to provide WideFS-like (or light!) functionality. To do this, see 


Otherwise, if your applications are SimConnect based, then it should be possible to run them by setting-up a networked SimConnect connection, as shown in that link above (for FSUIPC7).

Not exactly. If you want to run 2 copies of MSFS at the same time, you would need 2 licenses. BUT, these would be independent, i.e. what is happening on one version of MSFS has nothing to do with what is happening on the other - they are not connected.

You probably want something like WideView - see https://www.wideview.it/
