I also have totally removed FSX and reinstalled it, and still i always get this same thing with not being able to connect to Sim Connect, does anybody know a way around it?? Any help would be great thnx

What says "failed to connect" and where? Does FSUIPC actually load, or not? If it does, what does the Log show (FSUIPC4.LOG in the FSX Modules folder).If FSUIPC isn't loading then it sounds like you have a Simconnect.XML file which is telling SimConnect to support only "global" connections -- which, unfortunately, does not include "local" ones.Are you trying to run ActiveSkyX on a Networked PC? If so, have you followed their instructions and re-run the FSUIPC4 installer after adding their SimConnect.xml file to your system? All recent versions of he installer check for and correct the XML file if it is missing a "local" section.Otherwise, find and delete the SimConnect.xml file.RegardsPete

My ASX is installed on my own machine, Not on a remote system.When i start ASX is get a message saying: "Sim Connect was not able to be loaded....this is required for operation with FSX! ASX will continue to operate but will not update FSX weather. See the documentation for more information about Sim Connect."

>My ASX is installed on my own machine, Not on a remote>system.>>When i start ASX is get a message saying: >>"Sim Connect was not able to be loaded....this is required for>operation with FSX!You have a SimConnect.CFG file and possibly a SimConnect.xml file, neither of which are needed for ocal connections only. Since ASX doesn't install these deliberately you must have moved them yourself. Just find them and delete them.RegardsPete

rgr i tried it and it still doesn't work. ASX still gets the sim connect message and FSUIPC still wont let me install it due to my sim connect. Is there a way to get a good sim connect file, to replace the one i have, maybe that would work??

>rgr i tried it and it still doesn't work. ASX still gets the>sim connect message and FSUIPC still wont let me install it>due to my sim connect.Ah ... you cannot actually install FSUIPC? Sorry, I did not guess that, you didn't seem to report this.Please check my Support Forum. Refer to the FSX Help announcement, which tells you both how to get SimConnect to Log what is going on, and also how to repair it when it doesn't function.I've never had anyone not able to actually run the FSUIPC4 Installer -- SimConnect problems only stop FSUIPC4 being run correctly. If you really cannot install I need more information. For that, and for more help with FSUIPC, please post on the Support Forum. Show me the Install log, or at least the actual error message which says why FSUIPC won't install.Pete

You may need to repair the FSX instillation to rectify this first.Does ANYBODY know how to fix my problem. I really want this to work so i can run VAFS,THNX

If not it will not repair the SimConnect installation. If you are using Vista it is much much more difficult -- I really don't know enough about Vista to help you then.I think you may need to get Microsoft tech support to sort you out. Once you get Windows in such a mess you have to tread carefully to avoid making it worse.Pete
