Win10 networking with Win7 FSX

Recommended Posts

This was a multiple application test for me, so I thought I'd put it here in general items and report my findings.


The setup:

See my signature for overall stuff, but here is what I did:


Win7 64-bit workstation:

--FSX Acceleration with original FSX box running on Win7 64-bit PC.

--Default Cessna and PMDG NGX and 777 tested.

--Default Scenery.

--NO other flight related programs running on this box, all running from below laptop.



--Network-connected Laptop running 64-Bit Windows 10 home

apps running from laptop:

----Active Sky Next

---FS Commander (Latest edition)

----WideFS (for above connection, for FSC)


In the above configuration, with the laptop being "upgraded" to win10 64-bit, I have NO issues with any of the above 3rd party plugin apps running. Weather is correctly depicted, FSC moving maps and GPS works, and no issues. :)


Now, of course, the next step would be upgrading the MAIN PC with FSX on it, but, I am not that brave yet. lol  Any thoughts from anyone else?
