Thinking I may need to reinstall FSX-SE (gulp)

Recommended Posts

Just today I started getting this message:  Flight Simulator has detected a problem with a third-party software program (add-on):

Name: FSUIPC4 DLL  Version: 4.972  Do you want to run this software (not recommended).  If I click yes to run it, FSX just quits loading.  If I click no, it loads OK.  So I deleted all the FSUIPC stuff from the Modules folder and reinstalled FSUIPC4.  Same problem.  So, not a corrupted dll but a problem with FSX?

I'm thinking I should re-install FSX-SE.  If I save my Simobjects\Airplanes folder somewhere safe can I copy it back into the re-installed  FSX and get all my planes back?  How about my Addon Scenery folder?  Will I have to go into the Settings - Scenery Library and reload (or whatever the term is) all my addon sceneries one by one (ouch)?

I take it back ..... this time I clicked yes (to use the alleged "problem" FSUIPC4 anyway) and FSX loaded OK.  Then I registered FSUIPC4 and relaunched FSX and it works perfectly.  Go figure!

Thank you Charlie!  I'm sure that following your advice was instrumental in the solution.  That's the cool thing about this hobby and forum.
