ASN SP3 on client PC - Error Cannot load Simconnect upon Win10 Upgrade

Recommended Posts


I was running Active Sky Next SP3 on network confirguration with Win7 on a laptop and FSX with Acceleration on a server PC. Everything works normally.

This week I have upgraded to Win 10. I have reinstalled Active Sky Next and then SP3 and placed the original simconnect.cfg file in the documents folder. I have configured all the files and I can see all the files from ASN related to location of FSX on the server. Upon loading ASN I am getting an error as follows:

Cannot load SimConnect

Unable to load any managed SimConnect interface. Simulator Connectivity is not possible. Please check your simulator/SimConnect Installation

Below is my simconnect.cfg file:


Any assistance appreciated.

Make sure your simconnect.xml on FSX/P3D side has the same configuration:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<SimBase.Document Type="SimConnect" version="1,0">

Connection should be automatic. Also, make sure you have network access between the PCs, easily checked with a PING command.

thanks for the reply...But I did not touch anything in the xml file on the server where fsx is running...the change was an upgrade to win 10 on the laptop and reinstalling ASN...I kept a copy of the simconnect.cfg and placed in the documents folder, remounted the drives of the server, identified the folders in ASN and tried connecting...


as soon as I open ASN i get the error.


Are you using ASN on win10 in networked configuration by chance just to ensure that such a setup is possible.

Nope, both run Windows 8.1.


Might be the firewall settings (i don't use the firewall). It should be possible on windows 10 nevertheless.
