Windows 10 Updates and Local Network Connections

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I am using Active Sky on a network and I am connecting to the FlightSim computer using SimConnect and sharing the FSX and Flight Plan Folders ( as per the Active Sky instructions).  It Seems LIKE EVERY TIME Windows 10 installs an update it completely screws up my mapped drive connections.  Now I can't even re-establish the connections at all.   I have the share  on the flight sim computer set to Everyone applying the KISS rule.  It was working, but after the latest Windows 10 Update, I AM SOL!  I can ping the flight sim computer IP Address and Machine Name. Wide FS works fine.  And probably SimConnect works, but the mapping to the FSX and Flight Plans folder is where I am struggling.

 

Any ideas on how to work around this issue?

 

Thanks!

First, run services.msc, and set both Function Discovery Provider Host and Function Discovery Resource Publication to “Manual Start”

Then, in Control Panel → Programs and Features → Turn Windows Features on/off, check SMB/CIF options to on (file sharing)

I find I have to do this (to both the server and the remote PC) after every major Win 10 update or my network shares go into the twilight zone.

Have you tried online guides on setting up Network sharing. Maybe double check all settings?

I’m installing OS10 this week and setting up wired network

I found out from Microsoft that this is a Known Issue, and it will be corrected via the Windows 10 update at the end of April.   Lets hope.  Don't know how in the world this got past the Q/A department, and M$ had no workaround!

 

Thanks!
