FS Always Disconnected

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have just installed ActiveSky along with all the updates however when I load FS then load up ActiveSky, I always get the message that I must start up FS and then press refresh. It doesn't realize that FS is running. Here's a screenshot:http://img78.exs.cx/img78/5968/activesky9sn.jpgThanks for your help.DC-10

Hi Gentlemenhave exactly the same problem - AS2004 does not realize FS is running.AS2004.5 B174 , FSUPIC 3.45 (unregistered)- Have done uninstall/reinstall as suggested above, antivirus turned off- Online mode active- IgnoreFSReadyStatus is checked on- FS is running and I am positioned at gate then I start ASNothing helps, after AS has started the message 'AS not connected to FS' keeps staying and it does not update weather.Never had a problem before, with earlier update and FSUIPC 3.4 AS was working like a charm. Problem occurred only with B174.Any help will be highly appreciated!ThanksAlbert

As edit to the above message:If there seems to be no easy fix for the problem I really would like to ask you to make the latest available build (was it 147 ?) available for download again. At the moment I am downgraded to build 81 again as I did not back up the last installation before installing build 174!

Hi all,Nothing has changed in B174 that can be related to this except for the fact that we have required the new FSUIPC 3.45. Apparently this version is having a problem somewhere. We are investigating.For the latest official version before B174 (B147) use this link:http://www.hifisim.com/AS20045-Update.zipThanks all for your patience while we sort this out.. FWIW we have yet been unable to duplicate this on any of our 7 office test machines or any of our dozens of beta tester's machines... Any instances up until now have all been solved by re-installing FSUIPC (3.45).Best,

There have been application registering problems with some versions of W98, W98SE, don't know about WME. There is a pinned topic on Pete Dowson's page here:http://forums.simflight.com/viewforum.php?f=54with a work around.I'd look in the modules folder to see if AS is registering with FSUIPC.BTW, many AS4 betas ago, installing the update wiped out my FSUIPC full registration. I had all the .ini and key files backed up so I got my full registration privileges restored. That has not happened since.

[p class=dcmessage]Sir,I have been having the same problem. Like the others, I've tried everything you suggested, but it stays disconnected. However, I did find a work around that seems to be working for me. I deleted the FSUPIC 3.45 key file which of course now makes my FSUPIC unregistered. Once I do that, AS connects right away. I tested this with both the FSUPIC 3.45 and the new test version. The only issue is that when it loads AS & FS9, I get a message that one of my programs is not access registration with FSUIPC properly (or something like that), but AS works fine. Bottom line is at least with me it looks like as long as I use an unregistered version of FSUPIC 3.45, then I

Thanks for your findings. If you put the key file back in does the disconnect come back? I am sure that some of our testers have a registered version so I don't know still what is going on.That other issue is being worked on. I have the error box pop up and need to click OK. Pete gets the same thing and is working on a fix. Be aware that AS does connect and work after clicking on OK!Hope this helps,JimActiveSky Supporthttp://www.hifisim.com/images/as2004proudsupporter.jpg

o.k., i found the option (had not installed the latest build).anyway - no solution for the problem. but i ask myself even because of the old build: why it stopped working from one day to the other?!and what about the fsuipc issues. so should i deinstall the fsuipc in order before i install activesky?? so first active sky, then again the fsuipc??

I just bought AS2004 and I have the same problem too. I have a registered version of FSUIPC 3.45, and the last available AS2004. I tried the beta 3.469 without success...I remove all the FSUIPC files as Benni did, then I made a new install : AS2004 is connected only if I leave FSUIPC UNREGISTERED.When I enter my FSUIPC reg. key, restart FS2004 then AS2004 get disconnected.So it works only with unregistered version of FSUIPC ... not good for me as all my FSUIPC setting are lost !Any solution for that?thx
