Recommended Posts

Well folks I know im a late comer to FSX so forgive me on my ignorance.Here is my set up that I had with FS9.Com1 FS9, fsuipc, and all the go withs add-ons leveld etc.Com 2, widefs, radar contact, fs commander, ASA.Upon deciding to go with FSX, I put FS9 on the shelf.!. I loaded fsx on com 1 the way NicoK recommended with all of the updates.2 I then loaded all of the sdks 1, 1a, and 2 as instructed.3 This is where I get a little confused as to editing the simconnect,xml, how do you edit the file and im not for sure it

Hi Robert,XML files are just text files with a specific formatting, they can be edited in any text editor (notepad, VStudio, etc).By default, SimConnect only accepts connections from clients running on the same machine as the host - this is a security thing. To accept connections from other machines, you need to edit (or possibly create) the SimConnect.XML file with a port (IPv4 or IPv6) or named pipe listed as a global connection (you can list one or more of all three if you like :-> ).One quick question, do you have the deluxe or standard version of FSX? If you only have standard, then you aren't going to get it to work, as the standard version only supports local SimConnect clients (remote SimConnect clients is one of the Deluxe version only features). If you bought the gold pack, then you have deluxe. Oh, but you mentioned installing the SDK, so you must have Deluxe then :->You will also want to install the SDK on the second computer (or at least copy the SimConnect.MSI file over to that machine and run it, as that installs the SimConnect client libraries in the WINSxS and GAC directories (needed by SimConnect clients to load/connect)).Have you tried installing ASA (or any other SimConnect clients) on the FSX machine and tried them yet? Probably best to make sure you have local SimConnect connections working before moving on to the multi computer setup.
