FDS interface boards and MSFS2020

Hello all,

I have a question as to whether or not I am able to use FSUICP7 to create a LUA script that calls upon a dll file.  What I am wanting to do is use my simulators current Flight Deck Solution boards which use TekWorx interfaceITAPI x64 dll file and integrate them with PMDG 737 in MSFS2020 via a LUA script in FSUICP.

Currently I have not been able to find anything out there to make my boards usable with MSFS2020 and I really am trying to prevent having to spend a bunch more money and time to uninstall old boards and reinstall new boards.

Thanks,

James

I think that depends on the dll. There seem to be various solutions around for using dlls with lua - for example, see

I don't see why this wouldn't work in an FSUIPC7 lua script, but best to try it - there is a trial license available at the top of this sub-forum if needed.
