  • About Me
    My name is Robert, I am living in Germany near cologne. I am a professional magician and actor and my hobbies are playing the Flightsimulator and makeing music by playing the guitar and the keyboard.
  1. Ok, now I know, what you mean. The MCP V2 is a USB Plug and Play Hardware. It is running with the SIOC Software and a script. The hardwareconfiguraion is written in the sioc.ini. So I do not use this software. Is there a demoversion to test it? I don`t want to spend 49 Euros and may be to notify, that it does not work, too.
  2. What do you mean with Interfacesoftware? My SIOCversion is 6.0B8
  3. Hi Guys, after an Update from P3D V 4.1 to 4.2 a few days ago, I have problems, to run my MCP V2 from Open Cockpits. Of course, I made all current updates from the addons, like FSUIPC or ORBX and so on. After starting SIOC as an administrator, all LEDs are showing three "0", and no button or switch shows any reaction on the screen of the Simulator, running with the PMDG B737. The Mastervalues in the SIOC.ini are also correct and did not change, like they did automaticly after the Win10 update,and they had to be corrected to the USB IDs by hand. Even the SIOC Monitor shows, that the MCP is working. Though I restarted the complete Computer a several times, it did not help as it helped, whe this thing happened under P3D 4.1. What do you mean, could it be, that there are communicationproblems between SIOC and the new FSUIPC in the actual version? And if so, how can I fix this issue? Or any other ideas? Thanks for ypour help. Best wishes Robert
  4. So do I understand it right, that there is a prefix "solved"? How can I find and set it?
  5. I want to ask, how to mark a thread as "Problem solved" or something like that? In many communities it is a feature, to mark threads in that way, that helps members with one view, whether thy can find fast solutions in the thread. If it is not possible, you should think about it. It is a very useful and timesaving feature. Thanks for answering.
  6. Men, I have good news. I have solved the problem. Now my MCP is working well again. I found the solution in a german Flightsimcommunity in the Internet. Some of them had the same problem, that the MCP did not work anymore after the Win10 CFU. The same problem, we have or better, I had :-) Here is the solution, that worked for me fine. After the Update of Win10 to Win10 CFU, in some cases and some unknown reasons, the Windows Update changes the IDX or the USB Numbers of the Opencockpits hardware. If that happens, you have to rewrite the Mastercolumns in the sioc.ini. To do that and to find out, which values you have to change, you must start SIOC, first. Then you can see, whether the values have changed. If it is so, the possibility exists, that you have the same Problem, I had. And if so, write these changes into the sioc.ini Mastercolumns for the hardware and save the ini. In my case, in the sioc.ini I had before the CFU following values: Master 0,5,1,23 After the Update, the last value had changed, the SIOC window showed me, that the last number, it is the devicenumber, was suddenly the 92. I changed the columns for the MCP to following values: Master 0,5,1,92 Then I saved the sioc.ini, I emptied the script in the opened SIOC windows, reloaded it and the MCP worked. This helped me and some other people, who had the same issue after installing Win10 CFU. I hope it will help you, too.
  7. This is strange. They just sent me an email with the question, which version of SIOC I use. I answered, that I use the current version from their website. The only reply was, that they have no problems with this version. No further support, since that mail. It is now a few weeks ago.That`s very poor. And I am very angry. My conclusion is, never ever Opencockpits. It is a mess. They sell their hardware, they take the money. They leave their customers alone, as soon it is more, than a common problem. And I talked to Microsoft, too. But they said to me, it is a problem from opencockpits,not from Windows Creators Fall Update. Both companys move the Jackass to each other. And I am between their false game. I switched off the automatic Updates from Windows and made a recovery to the old Win 10. I hope, that in future an update will coming up from Wndows or SIOC, that can solve this problem. Till this time, I must live without any securityupdates from Windows. @ cbb: Are you able to send me the SIOC Version, you have? I could not find any Version in the net, which has the 6 as the first digit.
  8. I mailed them, too. And they asked me only, which SIOC version I use? I answered them, that I use the current version on their website. After this mail, a week later, I got the answer with the question, which SIOC Version I use. I told them, that I use the current version from their website. A week later, I got the same question again. Then I answered the Version number. But till today, I did not get any further answer, only the statement, that they use the configuration without any problems. This mail was sent by them 10 days ago. I ask myself, wheather it is wise, to buy other OC products in future, if the support is poor like this. I can understand, that they need time to figure out, what kind of problems are behind the issue, but it seems to me, that they have no any idea, whats going on inside this issue. I will wait another week and then I will ask again. If they have no answer then, I will sell my OC equipment and never ever buy this stuff anymore.
  9. I am interested in getting the mailadress, which you use.
  10. I deactivated all the securitysettings from the Windows defender and the additional Windows security features from the new update, but it did not help. The Hardware still does not work. :-(
  11. A part of this update says following: "Ransomware protections. To better protect against ransomware attacks, we’re introducing Windows Defender Exploit Guard that helps protect files from unauthorized changes by nefarious applications and your applications from unknown exploits. Additionally, Windows Defender Antivirus now has specific safeguards in place, along with default enhanced coverage that is delivered instantly via the cloud protection service. These and other security technologies protect against persistent ransomware campaigns like Cerber, Locky, and Spora, as well as global outbreaks like WannaCry, and Petya." The rest of the update is described here: https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2017/10/17/whats-new-windows-10-fall-creators-update/#jKkBsedMfV4JMbvR.97 It seems to me, that this protection makes the problems. I will try to find out, if there is a setting in this protection, that may be makes this problem. I can imagine, that the SIOCscript activates the new protection and blocks the functions I need, to make the Opencockpits MCP working. And thanks for this wink, to look up, what this update is doing to the system.
  12. Hi Guys. Yesterday, I installed the Win10 Securityupdate KB4043961. Since this Update, SIOC does not work anymore. In other words, I can see on the SIOC Monitor, that the Opencockpits MCP knops and Switches do take control there, but no Digits work and they do not light up. The whole MCP is dark. And the MCP does not work at all in the Flightsimulator P3D V4.1. Even an uninstall of the Update did not help. I had to recover a backup, I made before I updated the Windows System to the Securityupdate. Now it works again. But it makes no sense and it would be dangerous to ignore future updates, that are most cumulative updates. Unfortunately there is no Support from Opencockpits and their Community is down and does not work. Anyone with any ideas, what to do to solve this issue?
  13. 1. LINDA application version (go to LINDA Settings/About). It is the version 2. LINDA module name and version (in LINDA header). It is the Module PMDG 737 NGX, Version 4.8 3. FSX or Prepar3D (P3D) version. P3D 4. Aircraft model and version. PMDG 737 NGX 5. What were you trying to do (ie. connecting, programming functions, operating panel, etc). As I described up in the first post. 6. A detailed description of what the problem is. Comments like “It doesn’t work” are not very helpful. as written in the upper post. 7. When requested or when red errors reported or when requested please do the following: Go to LINDA Setup page. Tick Developer Mode, GUI and LUA boxes. Select VERBOSE from the download menu. Open Console. Restart your Flt Sim and LINDA. Run Flt Sim to reproduce error. Email FSUIPC4.LOG and LINDA2.LOG files (in /modules/ folder) to LINDA @ awginfosys.net (remove spaces). You may need to remove a block on logging in FSUIPCx.ini. You need to open it in the editor and search for the line LogOptionProtect and change it to NO. With this information I will try to offer help to get user flying with LINDA. I must do it later. I will be back and report. But only tomorrow, not today. Time goes by fast and I have to work.
  14. Hi ScotFlieger, thanks for answering. I have an already registered and full version of SFUIPC on my computer. The "about" page in FSUIPC says also, that the version is registered to my name. After I did as you advised in the second chapter of your post, I must sadly say, it the same problem as it was before. No assignments possible.
