    FSUIPC Version 0

    Dear fellow builders,

    I am setting up Project Magenta on my system, running FS9. Installed and registered the FSUIPC and widefs. However when I run widefs, it does not log into the FS. Ran PMFilecheck and I get the attached message saying that no version number on the FSUIPC, that the fs does not appear to be running.

    What could be the problem? can somebody help?

    Best regards,
    Rullysimo

    Re: FSUIPC Version 0

    When you run MSFS, and you go to the Modules pull down menu, FSUIPC, what version does it say you have installed.

    I am concerned you are trying to use 4.XXXX with FS9, If you are running FS9 you need to be using FSUIPC 3.XXX

    Additionally, WideFS is registered and running on your FSPC. Make sure you are running the FREE WideClient Softwares on your other Project Magenta Computers on the network.

    When you run Wide Client on one of those computers you should see in MSFS on the top bar, how many clients are connected.

    Good Luck.

    Trev

    Re: FSUIPC Version 0

    Hey Trevor,

    Thank you for your answer. Yes I have installed both FSUIPC and Wideclient on the FSPC. The FSUIPC I have installed is the 3.9 version for FS9. Then as per the instruction, I installed wideclient on the client PC.

    With everything setup as described, the clients cannot communicate with the server. That is why then I ran PMFilecheck which tells me that there is no version number on the FSUIPC.

    Best regards,
    Rullysimo

    Re: FSUIPC Version 0

    Ok, what your having then is a network issue. it says fsupic ver 0 vecause the pmfile check or widefs can't se the wideserver.ini file.

    Basic Networking to start.

    1. Turn all hardware and software firewalls off
    2. make sure you can ping all machines from all machines
    3. make sure when you are sure the above is done that you goto your FMC and under Maintenanced select net dir and tell it to create one. Do not let it create it program files\ anything as this can't be read from anywhere.

    4. in each of your wideclient.ini files on all your pc's make sure that either the server name or ip address is correct.

    5. once you load MSFS do you see at the top is should say "WideFS Waiting for clients"

    6. then start wideclient on one pc, and you should instantly see 1 client connected at the top of your FS Window, slowly add clients until you have 5 or 6 connected, or whatever your running.

    If you have done everything as stated above, and you still can't get it connect, I suggest you contact FSUIPC support, it sounds like there might be something wrong with your install.

    Best regards, if there is anything else I can help with, please let me know.

    Re: FSUIPC Version 0

    Ok, the only thing I have not done is the netdir. Will try that. Also I will deinstall and reinstall the FSUIPC + Wideserver just to make sure. But first I'll try the netdir.

    thank you,

    Re: FSUIPC Version 0

    Still does not work. I'm using Windows XP SP3, could it be because WideFS and FSUIPC do not support the OS?

    No.. Not possible.

    I really think you still have a network issue, or your widefs and wide client are not able to see each other for some reason.

    On your flight simulator computer Using the windows interface, (Windows Explorer) can you browse through the network and actually get to the wide client directory on "ALL" of your other computers and see all the files?

    Make sure you have file and printer sharing on.

    Make sure you are using TCP/IP protocols.

    just keep trying. you will have big satisfaction when it works, but I can tell you form experience, really it shouldn't be this hard.

    Hi,

    I hope you mistyped the above statement... You run Wideclient only on the client computers; on the FS PC you need WideServer!

    If that is the case, I will shut up in shame...
