    Glass Flight Desk Software

    I'm working on building my first cockpit on a very limited budget. I am using the ogs software for PFD and NAV and I downloaded and liked the look of Glass Flight Deck for the EICAS and a few other gauges.

    I have one computer running FS2004 and a second networked PC running the glass panels. No matter what I do, I cannot get any software on the 2nd PC to connect to FS using the WideFS/FSUIPC system. Glass Flight Deck always says "Not Connected". I have also tried 737Eicas and FreeFD and they won't connect either. OGS is running perfectly using the iocpserver but will not connected over WideFS/FSUIPC either.

    Anyone have any success running these? I have a registered version of FSUIPC (v3.7.1.0) and a registered version of WideFS. WideClient will connect to FS and FS shows its connected, but the software programs won't connect.

    Thanks!

    I too am using all freeware. At home I use GFD for PFD ND EICAS and standby, at work I use FreeFD, GFD and Open Cockpits together for my panels, no problem. It sounds like there is a common denominator if no programs will work. Have you placed the .dll in the modules folder of FS2004? Are both your computers on the same network (workgroup).

    Here you go jack, this is the only one I haven't tried, something about C++ if I remember. Maybe if I get bored this winter.
