In Search of SimConnect v6.1.61259.0

Recommended Posts

I am in need/search of Build 61259 of SimConnect. My SP2 installed 61637 and I have software complaining that it can't find build 61259. I'm not sure where this particular build of SimConnect originated (an older release of SP2?). If someone has it, could they upload it somewhere or point me to a link?

 

Thanks.

SimConnect modules reside in C:\Windows\WinSxS and are controlled by the side-by-side system so different versions can run at the same time. This sounds like your registry is corrupt.

I know.

 

The problem is that the DLL version stored in:

 

C:\Windows\WinSxS\x86_microsoft.flightsimulator.simconnect_67c7c14424d61b5b_10.0.61259.0_none_55f5ecdc14f60568

 

...is not 61259 it's 61637.

 

Something overwrote 61259 with this newer version. 61259 is nowhere to be found on my system and neither SP2 or the SDK SP2 will install it.

the 61637 is just another version value for 259. What have you installed recently something has corrupted the sxs system by the saund of it.

I believe you are mistaking a version of an SDK for a SimConnect client. Version 61637 is the version number of the SP2 you installed. After installing all the SDK updates, you then go to (Default Path) C:\Program files (x86)\Microsoft Games\ Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDK(this would be the same folder as FSX is installed (Default Path). So you would have two folders the FSX folder, and the SDK folder. Open Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDK folder, then double click on the subfolder, called SDK.  Then double click Core Utilities Kit. Next double click on SimConnect SDK folder. Then double click or open the " lib folder". In the lib folder you will find a file called SimConnect.msi. Now install this msi files on your client computer. Next go back to the SimConnect SDK folder, and open the LegacyInterfaces folder. In this folder you will find two folders called FSX-RTM, and FSX-SP1. Each of these folders has a Simconnect.msi files in them. You must also install these two files on your client computer. When you are done you should have three SimConnect client files in your add/remove on the client computer. The version numbers of these three SimConnect files should be v 10.0.60905.0 ; v 10.0.61242.0 ; v 10.0.61259.0. Hope this helps.

I don't think it is. The version number 61637, is the version number of an SDK. The installer for the SimConnect client resides in the SDK folder, as a subfolder. Once all SDK updates are applied, the three Simconnect client files must be installed on the client computer. It seems he is mistaking an SDK version number for a SimConnect client version number.

I could be wrong, but I don't believe such a file even exists with those version numbers ( 6.1.61259.0) All versions of the SimConnect clients, and the SDK's, all start with 10.0., NOT 6.1.

Yeah, it's a typo. It's 10.0. Sorry for the confusion.

 

The build in question is 61259 (whatever the preceding digits). Looks like something overwrote 61259 with 61637. I downloaded SP2 again and unpacked the .msi installer, but it also contains 61637. Sounds like what Steve was saying...61637 *IS* the new 61259.

I beg to differ. The three SimConnect clients ARE version, 10.0.60905.0 - 64.0 KB; version 10.0.61242.0 - 76KB,  and version 10.0.61259.0 - 145KB. These three SimConnect clients are installed on the client computer, and they can be viewed in the add/remove. I know, because I just installed them on my system. The SDK's reside on the computer, which has FSX installed. These can also be viewed in the add/remove on the FSX computer (server). These version for the SDK's in the add/remove are - Microsoft Flight Simulator X SP2 SDK - 321MB - version 10.0.61472.0, and the other one is Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Acceleration SDK - 333MB - version 10.0.61637.0

 

It sounds like you are simply doing something wrong. Mine is working perfectly. Itemize exactly what you are doing to setup your network.

yes exactly

I believe you are wrong. That particular version number (61259)corresponds with an SDK file. The three Simconnect.msi files are found in a subfolder of the fully updated SDK file.

Just a few questions if I may. Is your system up and running, or are you still having problems. Are you using FSX standard, FSX Deluxe, or FSX Gold. Unless you change the install location, the SDK will install to the default location, which is the drive letter Windows is installed on, which typically is C:\ Program Files (x86)\ Microsoft Games, and creating a subfolder called Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDK, and this is where you will find your SimConnect msi installers for the SimConnect clients.

61355 - FSX sp1 - 61242

61637 - X pack - 61259

60905 - FSX - 60905

What version of FSX are you starting with. FSX standard, FSX Deluxe, or FSX Gold. The version numbers I just posted are the ones I currently have on my system, and all works fine. I have checked the version numbers with Froogle's tutorial to verify if I had it right, and YES my version numbers are indeed the same as what Froogle is running. Just to be clear, what numbers are SDK versions, and what numbers are Simconnect client  version numbers from your posted list?

Doesn't matter what version started with. 60905 is RTM, 61242 is X Pack, and 61259 is sp1 the others SDK counterparts. 61637 comes with the fully up to date SDK others are legacy.

61355 - FSX sp1 - 61242

61637 - X pack - 61259

60905 - FSX - 60905

CORRECTION - I meant to say that 61259 corresponds to a SimConnect client version.

Doesn't matter what version started with. 60905 is RTM, 61242 is X Pack, and 61259 is sp1 the others SDK counterparts. 61637 comes with the fully up to date SDK others are legacy.

Well here is the bottom line. I currently have SimConnect versions 10.0.60905.0 ; version 10.0.61242.0, and version 10.0.61259.0 installed on my client computer. I installed three Simconnect.msi installers. One from the subfolder " lib", and two from the legacy subfolder. I included all of them just in case some addons require different versions. In the final analysis my setup works great. If yours works that great, good. I am just trying to help this guy. I am not trying to see who has the most knowledge on the subject.

check your SimConnect folders:

 

\Windows\WinSxS\x86_microsoft.flightsimulator.simconnect

_67c7c14424d61b5b_10.0.60905.0_none_dd92b94d8a196297 = SimConnect 60905 dll

 

C:\Windows\WinSxS\x86_microsoft.flightsimulator.simconnect

_67c7c14424d61b5b_10.0.61242.0_none_e079b46b85043c20 = SimConnect 61355 dll

_67c7c14424d61b5b_10.0.61259.0_none_55f5ecdc14f60568 = SimConnect 61637 dll

I am definitely no expert on this subject, but apparently the FSX version you start with does matter from all the material I have read as it relates to how you proceed if you want to setup a network. Also it seems that the SimConnect clients are just one small part of the SDK.
