permissions and folder ownership

Recommended Posts


I'm having massive problems in trying to get simconnect to work on my client and server pc's

I have been through everything that should be installed and checked all spelling punctuation etc and as far as I can see all is ok

As far as I can tell My sharing and windows firewalls are ok,as I can change and save files on the server pc while using the client pc but when I try to run the AI Traffic on the client pc to test the connection it starts and stops immediately

I was having a look at the folder ownership of the fsx files in the C:\users\myname\appdata\roaming\microsoft\fsx and this shows that the SYSTEM is the owner while as far as I can see most others required are either adminstrator or me could this be a cause for simconnect not to work?


also bit left field but should folders for programs I want to run on the client pc also require to be shared?

I havent found anything online to say yes but as I currently don't have them shared this also might be the reason.


Cheers for any ideas on what to try

I had some strange problems when first setting up SimConnect. I did everything by the book, UAC off, but couldn't get it to work.


I found a freeware called Take Ownership, ran that on all relevant directories, and voillá, all good.


I'm on Win7 Ultimate by the way.
