RC and P3DV (no fsx installed)

Recommended Posts

Gudday all,


I have done a clean installation of P3D V2.5 and need to install Radar Contact. I do not have FSX installed.


When installing Radar Contact I get a message that says"Registry Key for FSX not found, please browse to your FSX directory and press OK"


Can anybody tell me how to install Radar Contact in P3D without having FSX?

I get the same message, I was told by email support that "It must be something else asking for the path. RC doesn’t have a registry key, and doesn’t care where the fsx directory is"


No fix, wish they would come out with a pure P3D version.

Just browse to your p3d folder.


fsuipc is probably asking for that. Let that fail and continue. That is an old fsuipc4 version delivered with rcv4. You need to overwrite the old fsuipc4 from this link:


downloading the complete option and installing. Update makerwys.exe from:


Please see my previous post about setting both user account and program level privileges in both properties windows (first and advanced) for a shortcut to rcv4.exe
