Just to clarify the steps involved:

         1) UseProfiles=YES

         2) Create a "PROFILES" folder; create the profile for the aircraft, e.g.maddogx.ini

        3) In fsuipc7 for EACH Aircraft have the following entries:

                  [Profile.maddogx}

                  1=?

Is it the name of the aircraft, in the  simobjects\airplanes\maddogx\aircraft.cfg file, the string following "Title="?  

And does this apply to every potential livery, e.g. a separate Profile and name?

Thanks--

This should be set as default.

No. All folders/files are created by FSUIPC, you do not need to create anything. And profiles in separate files are only used when you set
     UseProfiles=Files
Please see the document Profiles in Separate Files.pdf.

Each profile will have an entry
   [Profile.xxx]
where xxx is the name of the profile. Again, you do not create this - FSUIPC creates this for you when you create a new profile.
In this section are the aircraft  names that use the profile. You can have many aircraft using the same profile (and you should name your profile accordingly, e.g. TwinProp), but many aircraft (more so in MSFS than in previous FSs) will require their own profile, especially if using lvarsm hvars or presets/calculator code.

Yes - this is also added automatically when you create the profile or add an aircraft to an existing profile.

No - when you create a profile (or add an aircraft to a profile) the full aircraft title will be used. To match other liveries, you should edit the aircraft title (in this line in the FSUIPC ini file) to be a substring match to the title of the aircraft so that it matches different liveries. Otherwise you would have to add the aircraft again when using a new livery as the title would not match.

There is also a new ini parameter called UseAirLocForProfiles which, when set, will use the folder name of the aircraft.cfg file for matching aircraft to profiles, which should catch most (if not all) aircraft when using different liveries. 

Please see the section on profiles in the User Guide, as well as the Advanced User guide for a description of the UseAirLocForProfiles parameter.
