Is this on your main FSX computer ?I assume its on your networked PC..Take a close look at your SimConnect.xml files and for setting up for the first time I generally set the IP addresses instead of the PC name.Did you run the Simconnect.msi installer?For testing there is a aitraffic.exe in your SDK samples folder for testing.Take it 1 step at a time and be sure to make sure the configurations are correct.. I took a couple of hours of headache because one section of my config file had a FALSE in it..... so slow and steady..The only really important thing is that the versions are the same. I don't think there is any real rocket science about this.

Hello,This is "Not" a networked system. FSX and ActiveSky-X are both on the same computer.

Then run the simconnect.msi. Unless you have some squirrely protection system on your PC you shouldn't need much else.Does the AI TRAFFIC.exe work ?

Hi,Well, I don't know what happened. After another re-install using one of the methods listed above it works. I just don't get it. My install yesterday was one of the "SAME" installs I performed initially, yet it now works (go figure).What A Pain In The You Know What.
