    Disable Windows Defender AV

    Hi Michael, I never tried und in general it should be possible. Search for "PowerShell" you might find more details. Regards, Peter

    Huge simCfgBackup folder

    It's the simConfig Backup Manager introduced since "22.09.2017 - v1.5.1". Use Tools > SimConfig Backup Manager to modify your preferences. In addition there have been a dialog to introduce the new BackupSystem. You may have overseen it?

    Ultimate Traffic Live - SIMstarter

    Thats the way I do it myself as well.
  4. Simply run SIMstarter NG as Administrator, that will start other applications with the same rights.

    A Word of Caution when updating add ons in V4

    Thanks for raising this question. The big advantage of the SIMSTARTER NG platform is to support multi file Codecs. It was always a bit difficult because nearly all platforms from FSX to P3Dv4 had their own files with different file Codecs. NG can handle this because each file has its own codec definition. So SIMstarter NG works like a charm. My older freeware won't be able to work but I think most of the users have been switched to NG already. But there are so many third party tools and installers out that I recommend making backups of all configuration files. Maybe SIMconfigBackup (FREEWARE) suites for you. Free download on my website.

    Start / Close programs along with FSX:SE?

    Thank you. You are welcome.

    Start / Close programs along with FSX:SE?

    You can either configure them to close or close the programs manually. See Chapter 3.3.3 of the manual. Running programs after the sim has been closed can be realized with the "CleanDesk Manager". AddOn Aircrafts in FSX shouldn't be a problem. P3D can cause problems because loading a saved flight from the beginning causes problems. Manual EN:
  12. Users of SIMstarter NG will be able to configure these settings within a Simulator ConfigSet, see: This feature will be available with the next version of SIMstarter NG. More FSUIPC settings will follow. This allow you to use different FSUIPC settings for each ConfigSet (and Profile). Very useful. For feedback please use this post (I don't want to hijack this post).
  13. Hi, if you are using SIMstarter NG please use the official support forum: if you are using the Freeware - there is no longer support for it. Sorry... Hope for your understanding.

    Is this program continuing to be developed?

    Sure. It's still under development. I don't own X-Plane myself. But we can create a PRESET for X-Plane - no big deal. Take a look at "SIMconfigBackup_Presets.xml" located at the main directory. Looks like this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <!-- Allowed Placeholders: %APPDATA% %PROGRAMDATA% %FS9-ROOT% %FSX-ROOT% %FSXSE-ROOT% %P3DV1-ROOT% %P3DV2-ROOT% %P3DV3-ROOT% --> <PRESETS> <PRESET name="PRESET - FS9.txt" sim="FS9"> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Microsoft\FS9\fs9.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Microsoft\FS9\dll.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Microsoft\FS9\exe.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Microsoft\FS9\Controls\Standard.XML"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft\FS9\scenery.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%FS9-ROOT%\terrain.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%FS9-ROOT%\autogen\default.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%FS9-ROOT%\modules\FSUIPC4.ini"/> </PRESET> <PRESET name="PRESET - FSX.txt" sim="FSX"> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Microsoft\FSX\fsx.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Microsoft\FSX\dll.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Microsoft\FSX\exe.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Microsoft\FSX\Controls\Standard.XML"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft\FSX\scenery.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%FSX-ROOT%\terrain.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%FSX-ROOT%\autogen\default.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%FSX-ROOT%\modules\FSUIPC4.ini"/> </PRESET> <PRESET name="PRESET - FSXSE.txt" sim="FSXSE"> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Microsoft\FSX-SE\fsx.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Microsoft\FSX-SE\dll.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Microsoft\FSX-SE\exe.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Microsoft\FSX-SE\Controls\Standard.XML"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft\FSX-SE\scenery.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%FSXSE-ROOT%\terrain.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%FSXSE-ROOT%\autogen\default.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%FSXSE-ROOT%\modules\FSUIPC4.ini"/> </PRESET> <PRESET name="PRESET - P3Dv1.txt" sim="P3DV1"> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D\prepar3d.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D\dll.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D\exe.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D\Controls\Standard.XML"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D\scenery.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%P3DV1-ROOT%\terrain.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%P3DV1-ROOT%\autogen\default.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%P3DV1-ROOT%\modules\FSUIPC4.ini"/> </PRESET> <PRESET name="PRESET - P3Dv2.txt" sim="P3DV2"> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\prepar3d.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\dll.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\exe.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\Controls\Standard.XML"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\scenery.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\terrain.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%P3DV2-ROOT%\terrain.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%P3DV2-ROOT%\autogen\default.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%P3DV2-ROOT%\modules\FSUIPC4.ini"/> </PRESET> <PRESET name="PRESET - P3Dv3.txt" sim="P3DV3"> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\Controls\Standard.XML"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\prepar3d.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\dll.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\exe.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%P3DV3-ROOT%\autogen\default.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%P3DV3-ROOT%\modules\FSUIPC4.ini"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%P3DV3-ROOT%\terrain.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\autogen.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\dll.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\effects.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\exe.xml"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\gauges.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\scenery.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\simObjects.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\sound.cfg"/> <ITEM type="file" source="%PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\terrain.cfg"/> </PRESET> </PRESETS>
