Termination issue with FS9.1 Update and latest FSUIPC version 3.9999z9b

Recommended Posts

OS: Windows 10.

fs91upd and fs91 nocd installs works fine unless FSUIPC is updated to latest version 3.9999z9b.

fs91update by default installs FSUIPC version 3.72, 02.02.2007 and FS2004 performs fine from

start to finish when at exiting the simulation the logbook entry option is given.  However, once

FSUIPC is updated to the latest version FS2004 does not terminate normally and the logbook entry 

option does not appears.

Is there a fix for this issue or should I revert to FSUIPC version 3.72?

Make sure that you don't have two versions of FSUIPC in your modules subdirectory, delete or rename the fsuipc.ini file and start FS to build a new fsuipc.ini. Now set all your options and you should be good to go. The "issue" you have is particular to your setup and not a common one at all.

ubersu, appreciate your suggestion.  Finding that Windows 10 loads the FSUIPC,ini file into Documents/Flight Simulations Files and not the FS9/Modules folder.

First attempt was to copy the file to the FS9/Modules folder.   No help.   2. Renamed the file in the Documents/Flight Simulations Files. No help.   3. Deleted the .ini file in the FS9 Module folder and restarted FS9.  The file was rebuilt back in the Documents/Flight Simulator Files folder not the FS9 Modules folder.  

Which folder is the correct location for the .ini file to work properly, Windows 10 Document/Flight Silulatrions Files or FS9/Modules folder?

Next step is to uninstall/reinstall, FS9.1 update to find out where the version 9.7 .ini file that works correctly loads.

Appreciate any and all help you can provide.

Hi,

I have no idea where it should be for Win10 - I suggest going over to the FSUIPC forum here: http://forum.simflight.com/forum/30-fsuipc-support-pete-dowson-modules/ and asking. I've seen very little support information for those who try to run FS9 on Win10. That said, does the rebuilt file in documents\flight simulator files make a difference, and are you running FS from the right click "run as administrator"

Have perform lots of searches and besides your support have come emptied.

FS9 runs very well in Windows 10 Pro once the FS9.1 update and the FS9.1 NoCd is installed.  The issue is that once FSUIPC is updated from the version that is installed by FS9.1 update, a Ver 3.72 that is 10 years old, to the latest version 3.9999zb9 exiting FS9 always results in a non-normal termination and the logbook entry option is not avaliable.  Other than that, FS9 and FSUIPC appears to be working fine.

I will reinstall FS9 and the update to fallback to FSUIPC ver 3.72 and find out the location of those file (FSUIPC .ini, .log and .key) that are showing up in the Documents/Flight Simulator Files.  Logically, those files belongs in the FS9/Modules folder.  With that version FS9 terminates normally and the logbook option is available.  Will also do a compare of the .ini files to find differences, if any.

Have registered FSUIPCs, both 3 and 4, and the only interests for this module is for the simconnect file required to connect to the FlightSim Commander and the facility option to map 4 throttles to the CH Throttle Quadrant.

Thanks for your interest, will advise of results.

Jesse
