  1. Hi. I'm also having trouble with gauges that use SimmConnect (Flight1 G500/600, and the GTN750 has gone temperamental)ever since I tried to load the FSX:SE Beta, even though I rolled it back when it didn't complete the install (locked file). I do have the SimmConnect.dll in the top level FSX directory. Is there any other checks I need to do. Nb. I already have ASN, AH2 etc on a separate PC across a network and they seem to be okay, it only seems to be the gauges that use it local to my server PC that are stuffed.
  2. I've just had a similar problem after a failed beta install of FSX:SE. After the failed beta install (locked font file) I returned to the latest Steam version of FSX and things haven't been the same since. Not only does the native G600 cease to work but the Flight1 G500/600 has failed too. I did find that switching the aircraft battery on and off helped to start the instruments (GTN750 and G500/600) but the G500/600 does not update. I've uninstalled the gauges and re-installed likewise with the aircraft (Seminole) but still the error persists. This is also true with the Chieftain, that has similar gauges.
  3. It seems that the last couple of minor(?) updates have upset my network adaptor, or at least they ain't friends no more, 'cause it keeps issuing a new IP address and plays havoc with my SimConnect files. Bah Humbug !
  4. There is some info here that may help. Once you've got the configuration sorted it is well worth the effort to have AS16 on a different PC
  5. Hi, I'm getting a bucketful of errors saved into the ContentErrors file, and I'm wondering if this could be a cause of my P3Cv4.5 installation running at about 20% to 30% slower than my original FSX:SE installation. I've posted a few below. It was originally full of my Alabeo DA46 errors but 've deleted it now, and lo and behold a whole bunch more have popped up. Are these critical errors and do I need to do research to resolve them? Whilst I'm here does anybody know why my GTN 750 runs like a sloth on valium in this sim, but works perfectly well in FSX:SE So far I'm disappointed that this 64bit simm is running a whole lot slower than my old 32bit simm.

  6. Its my understanding that FSX ATC does not communicate with any third party add on. I also consider it to be the most flaky part of FSX and I haven't t used it for any navigation for about 10 years.
  7. Will buying a new higher spec graphic card increase my fps in P3Dv4 ?. I'm thinking Nvidia 1650 or 1660. More towards the 1650 because I don't want to buy bells and whistles that P3Dv4 can't take advantage of. I currently have a Nvidia GTX 650 and I would appreciate any advice and/or experience if upgrading a graphic card really does improve the fps.
  8. Agreed. It was me clutching at straws that drove me to run them, and it was the SimConnect.xml that was the missing piece of the puzzle.
  9. BINGO ! It helps to have the SimConnect.xml file in the correct fold3r ie ...../roaming/Lockheed Martin/Prepar3d v4
  10. Hi, When I ran the SimConnect installer files from P3Dv4 (G:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\redist\Interface\FSX-SP1\retail\lib …. plus the other two ...RTM and SP2-XPACK) it didn't seem to create a folder in my …/roaming/Microsoft/ folder is this correct ? Can anyone supply me with the full path names of the folders I need on my server ? Did I use the correct installers ? I accept Lorby_SI 's point that the client simconnect files "should" work on the client but I'm not sure that my P3Dv4 installation is actually talking to SimConnect yet.
  11. Hi, I already have a FSX:SE installation on my server H: drive working well with SimConnect to my client PC with AS16 and other stuff. I have installed P3Dv4 on my server G: drive and a P3Dv4 version of AS16 on my client PC. I already have all the required SimConnect files loaded on both PCs from the FSX SDK. However I have not yet run the simconnect installers that come with P3Dv4. Needles to say my client PC isn't on speaking terms (yet) with the P3Dv4 on the server. I'm reluctant to run the P3Dv4 installers in case it upsets the current FSX:SE configuration, but I think I'll have to soon. Has anyone else come across this dilemma. Is it really necessary to run the P3Dv4 simconnect installers if they already exist on both the networked PCs.
  12. Thanks for the suggestion Benjamin J but the MiniToolPartitionWizard worked fine.
  13. Thanks for the response w6kd. All I have to do now is solve the problem of creating another partition/volume. I need to hack some storage space off my C: , plus another lump off my H: (by shrinking the partitions) to be able to create a volume big enough. Unfortunately the Disk Management facility within Win10 doesn't allow you to merge "unallocated space" from different positions on the disk. Having to do brain surgery on my hard disk fills me with dread but I think there is a piece of software out there (MiniTool Partition Wizard) that may be able to do it. But first I'll burn a disk image methinks …. or treat myself to a SSD ? Why ain't nothing to do with our hobby is easy. And I haven't even bought the software yet !
