  1. Thanks Polosim: I didn't realize that, and I see a trial version is even available.. Thanks again: RTH
  2. Unfortunately, Captainsim no longer supports this bird, so I thought I would see if anyone here has had this experience and knows a solution. I have tried all of the suggestions on the Captsim forum and website with no good results. I also downloaded and tried to install fresh downloads. When I try to install this plane and/or the base Boeing 757-200, I enter my order numbers and then when I click to go to the next step, I get the following error message: "Error code #11. Please report to: support@captainsim.com. One or more error4s were found in the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate sent by the server." I have everything backed up, so I tried simply copying my backups of these planes. Everything works fine, but the planes have no landing gear. The props disappear too once the engines are started. This is only the case in FS9. The 757-200 installs with no problems in FSX, but unfortunately, The C-130 is not available for FSX. Any ideas? Thanks: RTH
  3. Mystery of mysteries! I guess it was just Murphy. Got up this morning, clicked on WideFS, started FS2004, and WideClient immediately connected. RTH

  5. Thanks so much for the reply Luke. I got my hopes up even though I new this was not solution.. On the last round where I reinstalled everything, I just forgot to register it. On earlier tries I registered with my old key after quite a search to find it. Thereafter I have used the free key provided on the FSUIPC download page, IUT7 DBMK 1EU!1 (Being that it is free and published I assume it is alright to list it here.) I just registered again, and have waited for an hour and am still getting "Waiting for a connection". I do show registration in the FS9 modules display now in FS2004. Thanks again, but I fear this is not the solution,. RTH
  6. I made this request on Peter Dowson's Support Forum. Unfortunately, WideClient is no longer supported for FS9 (FS2004). The Dowson's were kind enough to reply anyway suggesting an incorrect IP address, or firewall prevention. The best and biggest advice was as always to Read the manual. So I decided to post this on Avsim to see if possibly anybody else had been down this road and had any other suggestions. Framerates have slowed down over time for me at high density locations in FSX and I have not yet searched for the cause yet. It's been a long time, so I thought I would install FS2004 again and take a peek. It flies beautifully anywhere. I realize scenery is nowhere near what it is in FSX even with UT, FSGenesis, and a number of other addons, but at high altitudes this becomes somewhat academic. For low and slow, I will stick to FSX. I have the Dreamteam, Simflyers, and quite a few more third party airports, so that is not much of an issue. It's kind of fun, particularly to be able to fly the Dreamfleet 727 and Baron along with a few other old favorites that didn't make it to FSX. My problem is as follows: FSX and FS9 are installed on unique harddrives on my primary computer. I have FlightSim Commander installed on a secondary computer. Implemented by the FSUIPC / WideClient programs (Peter Dowson). I cannot get WideClient to connect to FS2004. Note that everything works beautifully in FSX with no problems at all, so we know both computer talk to each other. I don't quite have it memorized yet, but I have been over the manual repeatedly for the past few days, I have downloaded and reinstalled FSUIPC 3.999z9 and WideFS6 (several times). I am sure the specified files are installed in the correct locations. Surely I wouldn't make the same exact mistake or typo so many times. I also double checked after each step. My IP Address is correct. Antivirus and Firewall provisions have been disabled. I have restarted both computers after every step. Although it proved futile, I did edit the WideClient.ini file to include ServerName=Office-PC (The host computer server name), and Protocol=TCP as instructed on page 4 of the manual as a possible solution. Any suggestions?

  7. Thank you Charliearon! I use The Realtek HD Audio Manager and have the 5.1 speakers. You nailed it. I changed to Stereo as you suggested and got the audio code back but of course only my left and right speakers were activated. Ironically I changed back to 5.1 as I much prefer to have that implementation for everything else including flightsim as speakers can be better adjusted to room conditions which to me is a bit more realistic. I was ready to forget the audio morse code.. To my surprise I still could hear the morse code in 5.1 after switching back. I don't know if it will last or not nor understand why I lost it after working ok for years, Murphy's law I guess. Again, thanks loads! RTH
  8. Thanks for the reply HighBypass: I don't think there is a mute switch anywhere relative to the VOR/ILS morse code audio with the exception of the VOR1, VOR2, DME, ADF etc. those selections light up fine when selected on the audio panel, but no code audio. Everything else works fine. Now to throw in a little stuff: I have the Reality XP GNS530 GPS and GNS GMAGTX Audio Panel installed in all of the aircraft I normally fly. This unit will negate actuation only on other panels, for example with the King Radiostack or any Microsoft default audio panels. However when NAV 1 or NAV 2 or any of the other selections are activated on the Reality panel, they will also light up on the other panels. I don't believe this is the problem as I have had this arrangement for years with no morse code audio problem until recently. In addition to this, I have selected a Microsoft aircraft which I never fly unless trouble shooting that does not have the Reality unit or any other modifications. Again all lights illuminate when selected on the default audio panel, but no sound relative to the morse codes. Again, thank you. RTH
  9. For some reason I no longer hear the morse code audio identifying my VOR stations. All communications and displays work fine. I also hear the approach marker signals fine. This is true of all aircraft and locations. No biggie but I do wonder why. Any ideas? Thanks: RTH
  10. Thanks for the replies everybody: BF Bullpup: I believe you pointed me in the right direction. I use the CH Pro Pedals for steering. In checking settings in FSUIPC, I found quite a bit of erratic noise with no feet on the pedals. Over the years this product has been noted for broken wires, which I have spliced on more than one occasion, but the last time was probably a couple of years ago. I suspect a wire is nearing a break, or a pot is suspect. I increased a larger null zone in the neutral position above the noise level I was seeing and have no problem with straight line taxiing now. HyBypass: I tried with no wind, 30+kn winds from both 90 and 270 degrees. I really see no difference. Thanks for the try vadriver: I have nosewheel steering for all aircraft, including jets at all speeds, although obviously the higher the speed, the more sensitive steering is. The only exceptions I have ever encountered are aircraft with no steering in some dandy taildraggers. Thanks again! RTH
  11. Good Afternoon All: cmpbellsj: You gave me the solution. I forgot that I even had GSX. After a little research this old memory clicked in and remembered that it was a dreamfleet installation along with a dozen of their excellent airports. I executed FSDT Live Update and now see the push-back tugs. Thanks so much for pointing me the right way. BF Bullpup: I run with just about all sliders full right. Thank you for your suggestions. Thanks all! RTH
  12. Thank you Charliearon! My "GroundVehicles" folder is still there, and to my knowledge I have never opened it before. I am not sure exactly what they are called as I do not see the term "push-back" for anything. Best guess is "VEH_tractorCab". I have backups from when I am pretty sure this problem did not exist. I renamed "GroundVehicles" and copied one of the old folders and cranked FSX up again. Still no tugs to push back the aircraft. Thanks again! RTH
  13. I realize that at some airports, particularly addons, tugs may not be displayed at a gate. I am just now realizing that I have no push-back tugs displayed anywhere, including gates that I am sure were available in the past. Note that the other ground vehicles are displayed like luggage tugs and trailers. Under options>settings>display I have Airport Vehicle Density set to maximum (full right). I fear that somewhere a line item has negated my push-back tugs, but I have no idea where to look. Respectfully: RTH
  14. Some of the time taxi steering is very stable, at other times wants to wander either left or right. I see a number of posts relative to P factor and torgue, but rolling at idle throttle or particularly with a jet this should not be a problem on the ground. Under Realism Settings, P Factor, and Torgue are turned off. Now what really is strange: Upon landing at my destination airport, taxi sensitivity is always very stable and the aircraft will taxi in a straight line. This is not aircraft, location, or flightplan specific. By that I mean with any aircraft or same conditions, this problem may or may not show up. Respectfully: RTH
  15. Thanks for the reply Yashigashi: The folders reside in the root C folder. The sharing window displays: "This folder is shared with other people. If you delete this folder, it will no longer be shared. The share names are the same as the folder names, just without the "C:\" Thanks again. RTH
