Simconnect.XML file issue

Recommended Posts

I am trying to run ASN and vpilot on a laptop through a network. My operating system is installed on my desktop's C drive and FSX is installed on the D drive. I cannot seem to locate the simconnect.xml file in the C:\Documentsandsettings\Users\appdata\microsoft\fsx folder. Can someone help me with getting this setup.

 

 

Thanks

Edit. JJ posted at the same time, if your SC xml is lost, do what I posted below and make sure you save to dir that JJ posted.

*********************************************************************************************************

Open Notepad, copy what is below replacing xxxx's for your IP adress of your fsx machine. Save as Simconnect.XML

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252" ?>
<SimBase.Document Type="SimConnect" version="1,0">
<Descr>SimConnect</Descr>
<Filename>SimConnect.xml</Filename>
<SimConnect.Comm>
<Disabled>False</Disabled>
<Protocol>IPv4</Protocol>
<Scope>global</Scope>
<Address>xxx.xxx.x.xx</Address>
<MaxClients>64</MaxClients>
<Port>500</Port>
<MaxRecvSize>4096</MaxRecvSize>
<DisableNagle>False</DisableNagle>
</SimConnect.Comm>

<SimConnect.Comm>

thank you very much for the help. I also realized I am missing the Simconnect.ini file as the Users\Mydocuments\Flightsimulator folder. Do you know where that can be found?

Open Notepad and put :

[simConnect]
level=verbose
console=0
;RedirectStdOutToConsole=1
;OutputDebugString=1
;file=c:\simconnect%03u.log
;file_next_index=0
;file_max_index=9

 

and save as simconnect.ini

 

The ini is mainly used for logging.

now i seem to be having an issue with the client. I installed the Simconnect.msi file on my laptop, but cannot find the simconnect.cfg file on users\documents. Is there something wrong i am doing that none of these files are showing up and that i have to create them?
