  1. Installation Error on Win10

    Everytime when I try to install FSX on Windows 10(64-bit) the installation is almost finished. But when it says "Registrating Modules", an error occures and the setup aborts the installation. I need hlp, because I alreay re-installed Win10 and I actually just want to test my freshly bought PMDG 777&737 and Airbus A320/321!
  2. As with many, many others I have an unstable FSX:SE experience after build 1709 installed on my system. However, I've tried to make the best of it and - you know what - I've found a silver lining! I got tired of CTD and 'child window' issues, of missing menu dropdowns and erratic behaviour so, since I haven't done it properly for a few years now, I decided to do a forensic test of all my settings (not tweaks - just settings). I set a standard flight and then trialled slider combinations, I experimented with Affinity Mask settings, I tested the effect of autogen buildings and trees per cell and a few more besides. The result? I now have a sim rig which gives me better and crisper graphics than I've ever seen and a smoothness to my visuals that I hadn't achieved until now. (I know I should have done this before now but I was too busy flying ) No rights and wrongs in this - just sharing an unexpected positive from the 1709 debacle. Rupert
  3. Todays windows10 update (fall creator)

    My windows got updated yesterday. I noticed that windows wanted me to update when I shut it down last night. Today I notice several irregularities: - My Majestic dash 8 isn't starting in a cold and dark config. Instead it starts on battery, and none of the switches do anything except move from one position to another when I manipulate them. FMC dont come on, and the radio stacks dont turn on. Turning the battery off doesnt do anything. Restarting the sim doesnt help. - Prepar3d v4.1 just hangs when I shut it down. It's window dissapear, but its on the taskbar showing as active. It's been 5 minutes now, and it still hasnt gone away. - My windows task bar shows up in the top of the screen instead of the bottom where I want it when I first boot up the system. I get alot of app crash messages when initially coming into the desktop. Subsequent startups during the day leaves the taskbar in its normal position in the bottom, and I get no app crash messages. I am using Nvidia surround on 3 screens btw. GFX driver is updated along with geforce experience. These are just three of the most glaring issues I had because of this update. Anyone else noticing any not normal things with their pc/sims?
  4. Hi everybody, in lack of a "soundcard" forum, I try to explain my request here . Please feel free to correct me. Since I plan to build my own simpit one thing bothers me: The too good sound quality using a microphone for e.g. "intercom" (two hedsets). Voices from the radio using e.g. pilots edge sound like the guy sits right next to you, it's a to clear sound . Out of the box and using the standard Windows settings real life radio and intercom just not sounds like the real thing. Windows 10 even can just raise the quality for its mic input but lowering it is not provided. I recall that Win95 had an option to set the sound quality to "telephone" which would be great here now. Does anyone know a little trick (software, settings etc.) to lower the sound quality just for the microphone and imcoming radio chatter? Appreciate any help :). Kind regards.
  5. Hi everybody, I'd like to introduce myself this way and say hello to you guys ot there :). Long story short, I startet my first virtual flying experience on an AMIGA 500 back in the late eighties and in my twenties I worked as an aircraft mechanic on airforce machines and also on GA planes like Cessna, Piper, Mooney etc. I'm in my early fourties now and after years of "flying" MSFS from version 98 on I again switched lanes and now X-Plane (10, now 11) supported with some addons (planes, scenery, realism tools...) provides the fun. Don't regret it. This year I found out about "On The Glideslope", got thrilled and now I plan to build something similar. Fot those who don't now about this, it's a nice basement simpit, great for single engine GA aircraft simulation like Cessna 172. Right now I'm doing a lot of research and I also gather desired hardware. With SketchUp I try to plan the cockpit itself. I test tools like Air Manager for a nice steam gauge panel and spadneXt to configure my already existing Saitek hardware the way I like and need it. Everything slowly comes together and in 2018 I'l start to bring everything together and build this thing. I don't rush things, since this is a hobby and I don't have any deadline to hold. But thrilled to build this thing I am :). Kind regards
  6. SIOC Problems after Win 10 Update

    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?
  7. Hello, for some reason I'm not getting any response from the ATC. Also during startup I get following error : Which is odd because as you can see I in fact do have English installed and set as default (I have my native language pack installed as well but that should not be a problem since it's not default, right? ) : But for some reason I do not get any response from the ATC at all. I'm using the text "SayIt" interface as I don't have mic setup, plus I don't really want to be talking to my computer, text interface is fine :-) Also the test in config does not work. The voice tests work fine, I even get ATIS response when I tune in ATIS on radio (P2ATC set to handle ATIS) but no response from any actual controllers : I'm flying IXEG 733 which uses a lot of custom systems so just to make sure it's not blocked by battery and so on I set P2ATC to ignore those : Any ideas pls ? PS: My flight plan seems fine. It's validated and filed. Also I'm using LKTB Gnd to try to get the clearance as there is no dedicated clearance frequency but that is not the issue - I tried them all, I get response from none. PS2: I also tried running the P2ATC as administrator and also in Win7 compatibility mode (just in case). No luck.
  8. Hi all, I'm a new user so should introduce myself. I'm a PPL pilot and have an FSX sim running win7, decent graphics running over 3 screens with a fair amount of Saitek hardware. It works well and tbh, am happy with it. I'm here to hopefully gain some insights on the future of avsim and how I can possibly build a bigger/better sim for the future with better hardware and software. I'm new to the forum so please be kind. With all respect to those longstanding users on here, I've had many unpleasant experiences in the past on other sites from the "typical" armchair enthusiasts (think comic book guy from the Simpsons) who enjoy ridiculing and belittling people of lesser experiences. I'm really not interested in any of that. I'm not a total ignoramus, but completely accept I am far from as knowledgeable as some. That said, I can and do learn. I know it's a pitfall of forums, but all i ask is "polite - not patronising". I hope that's ok. So I would love to upgrade my home sim and at the moment, I cannot find any reliable information as to which direction I should go in for the software platform. It would be a serious dream come true to involve a small motion platform and with the advent of small "home sized" hardware, this will surely become an affordable reality in the future. I guess the big question (which might not have a perfect answer at this stage) is what do you guys think will be the future software to think about working with? There seems to be some promising developments for the home user but no concrete advice as to which to go for. As a separate question, what software do the professional training SIMS use? Are these bespoke systems developed by the aircraft manufacturers? I can't help but wonder that they must, along the way, use similar graphics and computing technology that is available to us mere mortals - and if so, accepting the astonomical costs, what are the essential differences between a static Boeing flight training sim and a home made equivalent? NIce to be here and i hope I can make some mates interested in building our dream sims!!! All the best Dave Jones
  9. Not sure if this has been posted here already, but it seems that recent Win10 Redstone 3 builds (internal name for the next big Win10 update, due to be released in Fall 2017) are rendering 3rd party addons unusable due to changes in OneCore which is an essential part of Win10 (its part of the "Windows Everywhere" strategy allowing all Microsoft hardware platforms to use the same OS core, Desktop, Mobile and Xbox). This seems to affect pop up window handling of 3rd party addons for P3D/FSX. AFAIK. Redstone3 is currently only being rolled out to fast ring insider members but it might soon be extended to slow ring participants. Its currently unclear if those issues are due to a bug or an intentional change within OneCore. If its the latter then brace yourself as this would mean that many addons will require an update once the new Win10 build will be rolled out to end users. So if your sim recently started to act funny, ranging from "error creating child window", CTDs after loading scenario (PMDG 747), chaseplane and ezdok no longer working, erratic behavior of FSLabs A320 and being unable to open any add on windows like FSUIPC, GSX and everything else that sits under the addon tab in P3D, then welcome to my are likely a member of Win10 insider preview. Looks like opting out of insider preview will require a complete reinstall of Win10, so i might sit this one out. I just hope its not going to be a permanent change that will require all addons with pop up windows to be updated.
  10. Hi, all, I'm a newbie to this forum. I've been building a cockpit over the past several months and am now building a new PC to run it. These are my specs: Intel Core i5-6600k 3.5GHz Cryorig H7 49 CFM cooler MSI Z170A Krait Gaming 3X motherboard MSI GeForce GT 710 MSI GeForce GTX950 2GB G.Skill Ripjaws V Series DDR4 16GB Crucial MX300 535GB SSD DIYPC S280-W case EVGA 100-B1-0500-KR 500W power supply I have been running MS-FSX Gold Edition w/Acceleration on Windows 7 with these add-ons: Orbx-FTX: Global BASE Orbx-FTX:VECTOR REX4 Texture Direct w/ REX Soft Clouds My Questions are: Do I stick with Windows 7 or move to Windows 10? Do I stick with FSX or is there an advantage to switching to FSX-SE? Any other 3rd party plugins I should consider? Any and all advice or thoughts welcome! Thank you kindly! Dave
  11. After upgrading my laptop to Win10 and a SSD, I decided to give FSX-SE another try, applying NickN's Bible from the start (FSX-MS is not an option, since I removed the DVD drive). However, when I tried installing Real Trim (, I find it's not available in the Add-ons menu. FSUIPC shows no issue at all. Has anybody been able to run Real Trim in Windows 10 and FSX-SE? For reference, Steam is installed in C:\Steam, where C:\ is the SSD.
  12. Reported on the BBC News website today, form an orderly queue all you Windows 10 sufferers: Payout of $10,000 for Windows 10 updateMicrosoft has agreed to pay a Californian woman $10,000 (£7,500) after an automatic Windows 10 update left her computer unusable. Teri Goldstein said her Windows 7 computer had automatically tried to update itself to Windows 10 without her permission. She said the update had made her machine unstable, leaving her unable to use it to run her business. Microsoft said it had dropped its appeal to save on legal costs. Microsoft has been aggressively pushing the latest version of its widely used operating system, which is currently available as a free download for computers running Windows 7 and 8. However, many people have chosen not to upgrade, because they are running old hardware, have software that does not run on Windows 10, are concerned over the software's tracking features, or simply do not want it. In February, the company bundled Windows 10 in with its security updates and made it a "recommended update", which meant it was automatically downloaded and installed unless blocked by the user. Some people accused the company of trying to "trick" customers into installing the update. The Seattle Times reported that Ms Goldstein's computer had "slowed to a crawl" after the update, and Microsoft customer support had not fixed the problem. "I had never heard of Windows 10. Nobody ever asked me if I wanted to update," she told the newspaper.
  13. Hi folks, I know this might not be the right place to ask this question..... I have searched and can't find a solution. I am trying to install a livery, manually in the cfg file,[notepad] when I try to save, I get an error, like I don't have permission... I am using W10, and P3Dv3 Thanks, Jerry Friz
  14. I’ve just had a catastrophic graphics event that seemingly randomly causes a totally black screen (that sometimes switches to a weird pinkish) and the only way to get out of it is to hard reset the PC. As a result, I have totally uninstalled all FSX related software, purged and clean installed the latest NVIDIA driver and done a windows scan for missing or corrupt files. All to no avail, now even with just basic FSX installed flying the trike around Friday Harbour with the high settings for my machine, it still happens. SO… Maybe this is the push to go to Windows 10. A few questions: 1. Is it definitive that the RealityXP GNS430 will not work in FSX-BOXED in WIN10? 2. If not, I’m thinking of going to FSX-SE. I purchased it a while back in a $5 sale day. Will my add-ons below (except RXPGNS) work in FSX-SE on WIN10? I know PE is OK. 3. Instead of the RXPGNS how about the MindStar 430/530. Is that functionally as good as the RXP? I know I’d have to have the subscription to RealNav data for updated databases. 4. I’ve ordered a 2nd SSD to use as a clone for future catastrophic events. Is Acronis the clone software tool of choice? Thanks for any insights.

  15. I've installed Win 10 along with Fs9 on two laptops and 7 months later this still isn't fixed. The bug when you are in full screen and you it the alt key to bring up the menu and the whole screen goes dark, if you want to to get to the menu you have to go to windowed mode first. Well this just won't do. Especially if youre running FSNavigator. Win 10 basically breaks Fs9. Any fixes for thia? I'm going to cross post this in the FS9 so hope that's ok. I need to find an answer to this.
  16. All LINDA users are advised that no compatibility testing with Windows 10 has been carried out with the new Windows 10 release with any of the compatible flight simulators (FSX, FSX-SE or P3D). I have no intention to change my working or development systems until the new operating systems is proven to operate flawlessly with my setup and development tools. However, if LINDA users have or plan to cross to the dark side, please report your experience and success/failures here. There is nothing I will be able to assist but it will help others.
