Simconnect confusion

Recommended Posts

Hello folks, just want to say that im well frustrated right now, i have been fooling with this simconnect for three weeks now and still i Cannot get it up and running. was working fine before that.

 

My number two computer went down and I had to rebuild another second come , that is where my problems began.

 

I will start with what I got so far.

 

Computer one is where I have the steam addition only of FSX.

On computer one I have all files shared.

 

The files shared are: Steam/ steamapps/ common/ FSX............is this correct

                                : user/ username/ appdata/ roaming/ Microsoft /FSX.................is this correct

                                : users/ username /documents/ flight simulator x files...............is this correct

 

As far as sharing files , I know that they are talking to each other. Because I can go over to the second computer and be able to access files from computer one. I can change files and do what ever I want as far as file sharing goes.

 

So both Coms. are sharing files reading and writing.

 

As I have said I have been at this going on three weeks with no FSX connection between the two.

 

This is the Sim.XML file that I copied over too : users /username / appdata / roaming/ Microsoft /FSX

So far I have not saved any files to com two.
 
Here is the million dollar question.
 
What files do I need to run on computer with FSX installed in steam.
 
When I go to the sdks folder in steam fsx folder what do I do with ( RTM  / SP! / Xpack / simconnect.MSI. files.
 
So far I get conflicted ways to install these files.
how and where do they go , in what order do they go in.
 
As I have said before I had it running well a couple of weeks ago.
 
So right now I have dumped both computers and reinstalled W 10 on both of them.
I have shared every files that is needed and they both read and write to each other with no problems.
So can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong, what am I  missing.
 
I also have the latest Fsuipc loaded , and WideFs on the other computer and it connects FSX with no problems what so ever.
So that tells me the the sharing is working, so is security.
 
So folks I'm at my wits end, I have given you as much info as I can think of.
 
I'm not for sure what other info you might need.
 
Any solid help is needed  Thanks.
 
I believe its in the XML set up and the info on the other com. the AL traffic will just open up then close:(
 
if I copy and paste what you have on the forum and interject in my com  my address and port will that work.
