    replace fsx by pd3

    J van E, I just read your post. And I am leaning toward your advice. So my second question is can I just uninstall every soft with uninstall options or are they any trap along the route (registers, hidden soft ?).

    replace fsx by pd3

    Thank you to all (and Christofer P3D and not PD3!). I will for the time being maintain FSX just in case. As I go on I will come back for the addons. At this point going to P3D or relearning FSX will take as much time and maybe less fun. So ahead with P3D ! Roger P I

    replace fsx by pd3

    After several years not using fsx, I wish to replace fsx by pd3 4.2 First question: Knowing that many add ons for FSX are intalled (I am mainly thinking about EFB, Active Sky, FS Commander, Traffic etc...) is it better to remove FSX and install PD3 4.2 or should I install PD3 4.2 next to it. I am ready to renew all the addons. Ease of intalling is more important than trying to reuse whatever adds on I have. My second question will depend on the answers I receive. Roger P.
  5. I also had the message waiting for simulator. Checking and checking and checking but to no avail. Tried different options and reinstall ASNext. Same problem. Finally after several days and re checking again I noticed that the the simconnect in user/Uszername/appdata/roaming/microsoft/fsx did not contain the actual Simconnect.xml BUT içnstead a shortcut to the installation file. Once I corrected the error it worked perfectly. I am giving this info because it is easy to overlook the icon itself and realizing that it is in fact a shortcut. Roger
  6. To all, I received help from Damian (Active Sky) with this message in the HIFI forum: I was pointing to the wrong library. >> The FSX files define as disk X pointing to Master\Users\Roger\Documents The second prompt is for the FSX appdata location. In this case it should be Master\Users\Roger\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX << I hope this information may be helpful to somebody else. Roger
  7. I have installed ASN as an upgrade (ASA 2012 previously) ASN is on a Vista PC FSX is on a Windows 7 PC When I start ASN I receive FSX Application Data not Found. Please specify the correct path. Which I do but then I receive again the Data not Found and ASN closes. FSX is on the X drive FSX Application Data on the Y drive I am sure they are correctly specified as FS Commander and Aivlasoft EFB (both on the Vista PC) can reach them. Can anybody suggest me a way out of this problem ? Roger

    John, I just read your september 1 note. It must look like a miracle. Carpe Diem ! Take what you can. I am REALLY happy for you and I am also happy to know why RC development is halted. If your happiness and your family prevents any new development so be it ! No regrets. I had 50 years of happy marriage. Now my wife is in a wheelchair. But we are still happy and have many plans for the rest of our life. I can understand what you and your family must feel. Roger
  9. I always use full screen. And I can move any undockable panel to the second screen.
  10. O.K. jd.I received the key and started RCV4 on the client PC.I mixed up to be quick and precipitation.I also found out which e-mail address I used.
  11. jd,Maybe I am too much in a hurry. And then making lot of mistakes.I installed RCV4 on November 8th on my desktop PC where FSX is installed.I bought a new laptop a month ago. I installed RCV4 on this laptop used as client PC.I requested a new key for product id 2129792102 but with an e-mail address not matching (I think) the original e-mail used in November.I didn't get an answer but I am maybe to much in a hurry as I said. (1/4 hour wait - I supposed that the answer would be an automatic computer answer). I then tried to use the original key used in November. That doesn't seem to be recognized (normal). I send again a request with what I think was the the original e-mail address.No answer. I tried again by inserting a minus sign in front of the product id. No answer.Sorry if I seem impatient but usually these procedures are automated with many suppliers and the answers are practically immediate.So now I probably introduced lot of rubbish in my request. Now I stay on hold until you tell me what to do.Sorry again.
  12. Well that happens when one fiddles with unknown stuff.The ASX also works now. At the beginning I executed SP2 SimConnect.I found (as usual) the info in the forum. I need to have all 3 versions of SimConnect (at least SPa1 for ASX). But to find the info request lot of digging, searches, pulling the hair and ... lot of patience.Maybe this should be a little beter explained in the ASX documentation. It is quite complete but as one can see just one missing detail gives lot of problem.I am happy to use the ASX on the client because it was eating 4 or 5 fps (and my FSX is defined with 26fps). Now I need to migrate RC to the client but I need to check the FSUIPC and WideFs. I read that I needed to reinstall FSUIPC.Thank you Jim and all the others, mainly Al Jordan.
  13. Jim,I found in this Forum that I needed exactly this SimConnec.msl:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>SimConnect Server ConfigurationSimConnect.xmlFalseFalseIPv4global64 192.168.1.45004096FalseFalseAutolocalAs you can see with my first post the difference is not that big. But it worked. Now AI traffic test is O.K.I now have problems with ASX and SDK SP1. I will follow the instructions from another thread in this forum to try to fix this. It seems that I need to install SDK on the client PC, at least the SimConnect.msi for each version of SDK.
  14. Jim,I don't understand your advice. I read in the ASX doc:Firewall software must be configured to allow SimConnect communications on the port you set (we suggest port 500)
  15. This is not (yet) an ASX problem. I followed the ASX instructions to create a Simconnect.Server with XP professional, client Vista.Server and client communication O.K. (already a month now).Sharing the files as instructed (I can read them and changed them from the client).FSX and FSX SP1 installed (deluxe version)SDK , SPA1 and SP2 installed. (SPs from web site fsinsider).MS firewall set to accept port 500 and the two PC.Server: the address data is the server address on the network.Simconnect.xml<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>SimConnect Server ConfigurationSimConnect.xmlFalseTrueIPv4global64 192.168.1.45004096False---------------------------------------------------SimConnect.ini[simConnect]level=verboseconsole=0;RedirectStdOutToConsole=1;OutputDebugString=1;file=c:simconnect%03u.log;file_next_index=0;file_max_index=9---------------------------------------------------ClientSimConnect.cfg on client[simConnect]Protocol=IPv4Address=192.168.1.4Port=500MaxReceiveSize=4096DisableNagle=0-----------------------------------------------------------------Simconnect.msi installed and executed on client.But how can I see that this is O.K. ?Result:The test with AI traffic is negative, meaning that the job starts and end very very quickly with no message.So the ASX installation is now on hold. Well it finalization. Of course ASX from client gives an error message:Simconnect SP1 managed version was not found to be correctly installed on this system...But in fact the error appears before ASX was installed.So should I follow the procedure to uninstall and reinstall FSX SP1 update (the system specifies FSX, not SDK) Now I get this message on the client where no FSX is installed. I also receive this message if I severe the link between the 2 PC.Can anybody give me some advice. I already read lot of posts here and elswhere. I will continue my search but if somebody could help me I will appreciate.
