Strange Windows Firewall permission ?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Since a few days I have noticed that each time I start FLIGHT SIMULATOR a Windows Firewall permission request pops up with a message where I can read...

F:<n>\flightsimulator.exe

the <n> index increases sequentially from session to session... Started at 2, next time I started MFS it was 4, then 5...

Example:  F:7\flightsimulator.exe       ( btw, F: is the partition / drive I have installed MFS in )

The only difference from the default install was adding the GNS 530 mod as well as the Fw 149d Piaggio.

Anyone with the same experience ?

 

Thanks !

Use your flight simulators with a well defined purpose...

Don't expect them to be "perfect" or to fully cover all aspects of simulated flight...

Try to enjoy it instead of stressing...

I’ve had the same issue lately over the past week or so. I have a few mods but not many. Added and tested two of the tree mods lately and will further test to see if that is my issue.

If it's McAffee there's an option to Enable/Disable Smart Advice, which asks you if you want to allow a program through the firewall.

I just click CANCEL, and it is also ok, no problems observed so far.

Thx for the feedback guys !

Thought it had something to do with the last update OR an add-on I recently bought, because these pop-ups only started recently, after one or the other, don't know exactly in which sequence...
