  1. Windows 10 seeks to reduce power consumption and, hence save battery life, by switching off USB devices that are dormant and drawing 'excess' power. This can cause USB devices, such are Saitek panels and joysticks, to disconnect in flight leading to a loss of control inputs and displays. This thread describes 2 ways of over coming the automatic shutdown of USB devices. Method 2 is the best but should only be done if you are confident in your abilities. Method 1 Identify the VID/PID for the affected USB device(s). Using the LINDA Setup Joysticks page, find the line for the device and note the 9 alphanumeric value at the start of the line (eg. 06A30D050 for Saitek Radio Panel). The Vendor ID is the first 4 characters and the Product ID is the second 4 characters; the last digit is a count of the number of similar devices (eg. 06A30D050 --> VID=06A3 and PID=0D05). Open the Windows Device Manager. Click on Human Interface Devices. Now the slow bit. Right-click each USB Input Device and select Properties. If there is a Power Management tab, then click on Details tab and select Hardware IDs and identify the matching VID/PID for the device(s) of interest. Otherwise, try the next device. With the device identified, click on the Power Management tab. Untick the 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power' checkbox. Click OK. Repeat from step 4 for other devices. Method 2 CAUTION - This method requires direct manipulation of the Windows Registry. It should only be undertaken if you are confident in your abilities. No warranty is provided for those using this method. Be warned!! Identify the VID/PID for the affected USB device(s). Using the LINDA Setup Joysticks page, find the line for the device and note the 9 alphanumeric value at the start of the line (eg. 06A30D050 for Saitek Radio Panel). The Vendor ID is the first 4 characters and the Product ID is the second 4 characters; the last digit is a count of the number of similar devices. Open RegEdit. In the lefthand pane, locate the tab Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USB. Find the entry for the device(s) VID_{vid}&PID_{pid} (eg. VID_06A3&PID_0D05). Click on the arrow to the left. There will be one of more entries underneath (eg.7&3908cf29&0&3). Each refers to the number of times the USB device has been plugged into different USB ports. Click on each entry and then on Device Parameters. In the righthand pane, find and double-click on the entry EnhancePowerManagementEnabled. Change the value from 1 to 0 and click OK. Repeat from step 3 for each device. After carrying out the above methods, restart the PC and your Flt Sim. The USB should no longer switch off in use unless you change the USB port being used. Repeat the procedure if you do unplug and reconfigure your USB ports.
  2. Tried to find a good place to post this so if this is not the best place, please advise... I have a new JETLINE system computer and new MCPPRO2, EFISPRO, COM, NAV and ATC modules that I am trying to get running. These units are daisy chained over Ethernet to the local LAN I have installed the drivers, made the addition to the PMDG 737NGX_Options.ini file, and am able to open FS_COM. However when I go to connect, I am getting the following error: "Run Time Error 40006. Wrong Protocol or Connection State for the transaction or request" I am running Windows 10 PRO 64 bit with P3DV4 and connected through my local LAN. My local LAN host is IP so I have changed the IP number of the MCP to and I am able to ping that address and get valid responses from the MCP. I have left the port at 4500 but have tried other ports with the same error response. Any experience with this configuration would be helpful...
  3. Just completed an excellent flight from St Louis to Dallas over MSE Missouri and Texas V3 using the PMDG 738 and ProATC-X. Details hidden below. I have the latest Windows10 v1709 installed w/the latest KB4051963. Was able to accelerate to 4x's during most of the flight but the weather was heavy throughout the flight! On approach, I went to the wingview and watched the landing from there. Got amazing fps and lots of VAS remaining even though I had a lot of addons running. Happy about that. Just wanted to show the flight is possible with FSX (boxed). If anyone is having issues seeing the Primary Flight Display and FMC's with the PMDG 737 in Windows 10, copy the PMDG Fonts in the FSX folder over to the Windows/Font folder. Do not replace any current fonts, just add the missing ones. I thought it was interesting too that FSUIPC did not have to trap any G3D errors. Usually, on long flights like this one (500 miles), FSUIPC has to trap 5-10 errors.
  4. Been away for a long time. Old Win 7 machine took a big dump and I lost everything. EVERYTHING! Now I'm getting a brand new top-end machine running Win 10, and I'll be re-installing FSX SE, ORBX, most of the A2A and PMDG inventory, and everything, FSUIPC, TrackIR, EZDok, etc., etc. Question is, how do I set up Win 10 to run FSX SE clean and proper? Do I worry about DX10? Is there a list of things to change in the OS like there was in 7? The new machine will run FSX and DCS World exclusively - no personal data, no e-mail, no browsers, no nothing. Just 4 TBytes of drives and 32 Gb of fast RAM and a NVidia card with lots of RAM, too. Someone out there must have a list of preps for this. Any input will be appreciated. I can't wait to get back I the air.
  5. This is a new FSX install and Windows 10. I have Win 10 Creator's Update running FSX with Acceleration, several plane addons, and that's it. Everytime I exit FSX I get this notification. I've right clicked on the Properties of the FSX Shortcut and adjusted the compatibility mode (I tried Win 7 and Vista) but I still get this notification after I exit FSX everytime. Any idea how to get rid of this notification? Thanks.
  6. I've noticed that with Win10-64, that the FreeMeshX install executables do not function. Is this just me, or have any of you noticed it? Various compatibility modes and admin do not work for me.
  7. I apologize if I'm in the wrong forum but I'm new to P3D and XPlane. I've been using FSX and now want to try P3D and Xplane also. I have an old system (i7, GTX 780, 8 GB RAM) which I plan to re-purpose as a flight sim only box running Win 10. I have two new SSD drives (250 and 480 GB) and one old 300 GB Velociraptor drive. I also just read Avsim's P3D guide unfortunately I did not find my answer to this question: Where do I install the OS, FSX, P3D, and X-Plane given the available drives which will give me the best performance in the next year or so (until I decide on which flight sim to use moving forward)? Does it make sense to install the OS on the Velociraptor drive, FSX and P3D on the 480 GB SSD drive, and X-Plane on the 250 GB SSD drive? Would removing the Velo drive and using just the two SSD drives be better performance wise should I decide to jump to a 64-bit flight sim? I currently have about 150 GB worth of FSX and DCS stuff in the Velo drive and the OS on a small 60 GB SSD drive. Thank you. Edit: I just read Ray Marshall's review of Aerofly in Avsim after I posted this. I guess I'll be trying Aerofly too before the year is out.
  8. So from searching around, I know that there's no need to reactivate when reinstalling the aircraft or sim on the same Windows install, and I know that for a complete reinstall then I do need to return the license beforehand. What I'm not entirely clear on is how an in place upgrade from Windows 8.1 up to Windows 10 will affect the license, and therefore if I should be deactivating before doing so. I haven't actually done anything yet, as I'm doing a full disk backup before I touch anything because you can never have too many backups!
