Enabling TrackIR

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I can’t get TrackIR working in Prepar3d v.4. I am wondering if there is a place in Prepar3d to enable TrackIR. 

Thank you

nope ....... start TIR, assign your profile to the sim (prepar3d) title in the (installed ?) TIR software, tick which sensor (hatclip or pro) ...... (& untick pause as necessary)

I find that Run As Administrator helps.

You don't mention what version of the TrackIR software you installed. 5.4 is the latest.

Run "game updates" if it's showing on the top right of the main screen. I can't remember if P3D support comes native or as an update.

Run as Admin.

Run as Admin.

The only downloadable version is 4.5.
Trackir works perfectly with any version of P3D like fs9 and FSX.
It’s easy, please read the downloadable manual. https://www.naturalpoint.com/trackir/help/

If that doesn't help try to reinstall simConnect. It is located in your prepared main folder.

Prepar3D v4\redist\Interface\FSX-SP2-XPACK\retail\lib\SimConnect.msi

If that doesn't work, search for the same SimConnect.msi files in the Prepar3D v4\redist\Interface\ESPv1 and Prepar3D v4\redist\Interface\FSX-SP1 folders. Shouldn't hurt to run them.

After that the right light on the camera should indicate the connection with p3d via SimConnect.

Good luck

Success!!!! What finally worked was to run TrackIR as admin and then to run Prepar3D as admin. Many thanks to all of you for your suggestions and comments.
