ASN Waiting for Simulator - Single machine

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I am running ASN (SP3) and FSX. When I load up ASN then FSX, ASN just has a message at the bottom in yellow saying "Waiting for Simulator".

 

Can anyone with more technical experience point me toward some useful things to try?

 

Thanks and fly safe!

When that happened to me, I closed down ASN, restarted it, and all was good.

ASN should detect FSX when it boots up, but seems it doesn't always.

Did you get sorted Darren.  Are you running both programs as Administrator ?

Hi there - still haven't managed to sort this.  I am running both as administrator and have uninstalled and reinstalles ASN but still nothing. When I reinstalled it and ran FSX I got NO message asking it I trusted it etc. I've run the ASCONNECT exe and that installs but still won't connect.

 

Do I need to install simconnect as well?  Very frustrating!

I usually start ASN first, let it download weather. Once it is 'idle' and 'waiting for FSX', then only do I start FSX. Do know of this helps in your case though. I never start FSX first. Always run both as Administrator, no matter how your set up is installed.

 

Same when shutting down, close FSX and wait for ASN to say 'waiting for simulator' before closing ASN.
