Add-Ons Not Connecting to FSX Win7 64

Recommended Posts

Hi, I know these add-on's have their own developers' support forum but at times we are in a hurry and at times the solution could be around the corner so we don't have to wait for an official answer.

I'm new to FSX. I've had the Box version for a couple of years now but it is now that I've upgraded my rig that I went ahead and installed on a clean Win7 64 installation.

Turns out neither FSGRW nor FsCaptain are able to communicate with FSX. 

FSGRW shows : ""Flight Simulator Not Running?!

The connection to your flight simulator could not be established!
Please make sure that it is running and then try again!"

and FsCaptain MCDU shows a plain:

"SELF-TEST Fail Waiting for Aircraft" 

I honestly don't know if this a SimConnect thing because I'm not familiar with it. I installed default FSX and hoped for the AddOns to work but they didn't. 

I used FsPassenger's website to download SimConnect files and installed them but still no results.

Can you please help me?

Thank you!

Have you installed either the registered or unregistered version of FSUIPC4 yet?

Also, when you download the weather are you selecting FSX in FSGRW?
