FSXWX Not Connecting to Simmconnect

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I have a topic here: 

https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/511977-simconnect-connection-failed-error-in-fsxwx/#comment-3643044

and it hasn't gotten any replies for 11 days so I thought I'd post a new one.

 

Anyway, Here is my problem:

I got FSXWX installed for P3D and when I click Connect it says Simconnect Connection Failed.

I tried running the simconnect installer but it still had the same error in FSXWX.

Any ideas?

 

Thanks very much

3. browse to ur P3D root folder ... redist -> Interface ->FSX-SP2-XPACK -> retail -> lib

4. restart PC

 

5. browse to ur P3D root folder ... -> weather and backup wxmapping.bin or rename

I did that and still had the same problem.

I have Microsoft .Net Framework v4.5 installed.

And the free version of FSUIPC4.  Do I need the paid version?

Also, what settings (if any) need to be set in FSUIPC in order for FSXWX to work?

 

Thanks very much for your time.

Default

btw

now i see that FSXWX is not perfect bcoz most weather stations from Europe not available

So 4 sure better is freeware FSrealWX

You're welcome

Before install FSrealWX restore original game files

I'll be sure to do that.

 

Thanks

Yes.  Even though I never fixed my issue with this in P3D v3.4, now that I have v4.1, I got it installed and it works great.

 

Thanks.
