    Boeing Link2FS and Prepar3d

    Hello,
    Curious as to whether or not anyone has been able to get Link2FS to work with Prepar3d. With Prepar3d open, when I open Link2FS it hangs and then errors out with an Unhandled Exception stating that it cannot find Microsoft.FlightSimulator.SimConnect. I have installed the simconnect version from the P3D install to no avail.

    Thoughts?

    Re: Link2FS and Prepar3d

    Hi,

    I was previously using Link2FS to run a gauge using Prepar3D v2.3. It worked fine until I decided to do a fresh install of windows and reinstall Prepar3D. My previous installation had FSX installed in addition to P3D. Now with the fresh install, and only P3D installed, I receive a message similar to this:

    System.IO.FileLoadException: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.FlightSimulator.SimConnect, Version=10.0.60905.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies.

    Can anyone help?

    Hi,
    Try making a folder called fsx. Place in this folder fsx.exe. This has known to work before as some programs look for
    FSX.exe.

    Re: Link2FS and Prepar3d

    Sorry the late reply, I had to move my PC downstairs into the basement where my gear is, it's not fun running cable in a finished basement...

    Anyways, so I gave iwik's suggestion a try and still no luck. Still prompts me with the following error;

    System.IO.FileLoadException: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.FlightSimulator.SimConnect, Version=10.0.60905.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies.


    I think I'm going to load P3D and LinkFS on a laptop as a test and see if that works. Maybe I missed something when I installed everything on my actual Flight Sim PC.

    I stumbled across this forum link:

    http://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/thr...problem.11711/

    It gives some explanations as to where the relevant file locations are. I'm going to see if those x86_Microsoft.FlightSimulator.SimConnect folders are located in C:\WINDOWS\winsxs\

  10. Thanks Live2Fly thanked for this post

    Re: Link2FS and Prepar3d

    Thanks Ideroo, I installed FSX as a test and then uninstalled it...I didn't even run FSX at all, just install/uninstall. I then opened Prepar3d and sure enough Link2FS works with P3D. I went back through the folders that got added when FSX was installed and they still exist but are all empty. I think you might be on to something Ideroo, I'll read through that forum and see if it fixes things.

    I've looked through that forum before but never came across that exact thread.

    If this doesn't work, then I'll probably look into just interfacing only with FSUIPC. I wanted to use Link2FS because I didn't want to "re-invent the wheel" so to speak.

    I'll keep everyone updated as to my progress.
