Simconnect Yes, I'm sure everyone's done this many times. But I have to do it again. I need simconnect, but it isn't anywhere on my PC. I've done a search. I read everywhere that it should come with the flight sim installation. Where on earth can I get it from. I didn't realise one simple file could cause such problems.

I just want the program on it's own, nothing else. Any help appreciated. Join Date Jun Posts 1, Before you reinstall FSX because of the fatal error, just remove the fsx.

You can make a copy of your existing FSX folder before the repair and paste those individual files back in afterwards. It will not repair core FSX files. If you have SP1, SP2, or Acceleration installed, they must be uninstalled before a repair attempt, and reinstalled, after the repair, or it won't work.
Once you have your FSX up and running properly again, back it up, a ll of it. You may need it again and it's a lot easier than a Repair, or, Re-Install Thanks for your help Don Followed your instructions and got FSX going again must remember that trick but it didn't fix my original problem which was panning in outside view sluggish.
Oh well, here we go again. See you in a week. Page 1 of 2 1 2 Last Jump to page:. Replies: 1 Last Post:PM. Replies: 2 Last Post:AM. Replies: 6 Last Post:PM. Replies: 0 Last Post:PM.To make this process as easy as possible for you, we have prepared a YouTube video tutorial for that:. In case you have more than one compatible flight simulator software installed, please first select which one you would like to use together with FS-FlightControl.
On the next screen, the first step in the setup process, all settings on the flight simulator computer are done. First the local IP address that will be used to connect to the flight simulator computer is being automatically detected and shown.
By default port is used and you normally don't need to change that. But if this port cannot be used on your system for whatever reason, you can change it here.
In case a SimConnect configuration exists on the computer already, additional settings will be added if needed. Additionally this port needs to be opened in the Windows Firewall. This will make sure everything still works if it gets enabled again later on for some reasons. In case there is more than one IP address detected, this dialog will pop-up asking you to choose the correct one.
Note: Only in rare cases there will be more than one IP address detected. So normally everything is done automatically and you do not need to select anything here. But if this dialog is shown and you do not know which is the correct one, try one and if FS-FlightControl cannot connect with that, just run the wizard again and change the IP address.
Beside accessing the flight simulator directly via SimConnect, you will also need to build the FS-FlightControl database that contains all the information about airports, navigation aids and so on. To be able to build that FS-FlightControl needs access some flight simulator directories.
SimConnect Network Wizard
Therefore you may create a hard drive network share in this wizard step as well by clicking on the button Create Network Share for Hard Drive. You can also do that manually if you want and for this case there is an option to skip this part of the configuration although we recommend to let the wizard create the network share automatically.
Note: You may ask why we need to create a network share for the whole hard drive? The reason is that due to the fact that depending on your scenery imports defined in your scenery config file it is likely that there is access needed to many more folders than just the two mentioned in the screen.
Now everything is done on the flight simulator computer and therefore it is time to go on with the computer that should run FS-FlightControl. Therefore please close the wizard now, copy all wizard files file names start with SimConnectNetworkWizard to the computer that should run FS-FlightControl and start the wizard there again. Note: It is important that you copy all wizard files to the other computer as they were changed and contain the connection information needed to setup the FS-FlightControl computer.
Fsx Simconnect Client
After you have started the wizard on your FS-FlightControl computer you should directly see this screen. Here the configuration on the FS-FlightControl computer will be applied.
As written above already for building the FS-FlightControl database a folder access to your flight simulator computer is required. If you did not skip the corresponding Create Network Share procedure above, you can make sure now the remote access works. Then please double-click on this computer name to access it and in case Windows Explorer asks you for credentials, please enter them accordingly. Note: It is important that you check the Remember my credentials checkbox as otherwise FS-FlightControl will not be able to access the remote folders.
After the remote folder access was verified the shown access status should change to Access successful. The access to the remote folder is only used to build the FS-FlightControl database once and is not needed anymore afterwards.
Therefore you can easily work around a folder access problem by just building the FS-FlightControl database on the computer where the flight simulator itself is installed. Just install FS-FlightControl on your main flight simulator computer and start the database build there.
Click on that after the build has been completed and just copy the file Database. After that you should be able to start FS-FlightControl on your remote computer without the need of a folder access to your flight simulator computer.
Note: You do not need an additional computer license for FS-FlightControl just for building the database and copy it to your other computer. In this case one license for the computer where you really want to use FS-FlightControl is totally enough.I need version I just can't find it anywhere. Does anybody know where to get it?
Microsoft Flight Simulator SimConnect Client 10.0.62615
Or could by any chance someone who owns it upload it to an online file hosting platform? Prepar3D v4. I also see that you have P3D I found that too but it's not the version I'm looking for. I need the one I put in the title and my original post or at least one that is newer than Nothing happens however when I click on the installer so I can't install it Is that what you're having a problem with?
Yes that's exactly it. When I double click the installer a small window appears for about a second before it disappears and nothing happens. How is simconnect installed?
Is it installed into a certain P3D subdirectory? I need to find the simconnect. No it is not installed to a P3D subfolder, after installation that looks very much as you describe it you Must restart the PC for it to take effect. Thank you but that was over a year ago.

SimConnect FSX SDK for Steam edition
Thread starter Ralph Freshour Start date 30 Nov Ralph Freshour. I have an app that uses SimConnect but I'm getting a compile error that says my side by side configuration is wrong. What do I have to do fix this? What is the app? It's for my EZCamViews app. I'm doing an upgrade to it. Typically, you will have to install the older versions of SimConnect.
It is not done automatically. The installers should be in the folder you mention. I don't know where the sim connect dll file was installed into, so I can't add a reference to it!! Now I need to add the reference in my windows app in Visual Studio. But which sim connect. Should I copy one of those sim connect dll files to my app's main folder and reference it from that location? I referenced the RTM sim connect deep inside the Steam folder. Now I'm getting an error: SimConnect does not contain a definition for Text I tried to google this error but came up empty.
Why are you not using SimConnect. I've always used the. Isn't that easier to use? My app is a C app. If it is easier to use, why do you think they made header files and libraries??? Now I've got some errors and I can't figure out what's wrong. I'm not sure if this because of Steam as this is my first time using Steam.Does anyone know if Microsoft intends to support SimConnect in the new Simulator or will it have a new network connection interface?
I'm not sure I understand your frustration with SimConnect? Without it just about every single add-on will not work and would require updating in order to work in MFS.
This is not the only way to setup SimConnect, but it will ensure a high level of consistency in a changing environment. On a side note HTML is a modern standard? It was invented in Ed Wilson. Mindstar Aviation My Playland - I Is this going to be two sims in one or just FS-XI with a few albeit major bells and whistles? Before you spend another second on trying to get anything to work, spend a few days or as long as it takes to get a reasonable understanding of networking.
In the long run it will save you those thousands of hours for any number of computer issues, is nowhere near as difficult as you might think and is actually quite interesting.
There will be plenty of tutorials on YouTube, or subscribe to something like PluralSight for a month or two. Understand things such as:.
Fully understand DNS, although it isn't really necessary for your local home networking directly. Learn the simple troubleshooting steps you can take when one computer cannot talk to another.
Understand exactly what a firewall does and the basic functionality that ALL firewalls provide that can both keep you protected and drive you up the wall by blocking traffic you want to allow.
I used to have to teach this stuff to people with only a very basic understanding and lots of false knowledge so feel free to drop me a PM for any pointers. SimConnect is not about networking, that is only a side effect.Understanding the Network Module and SimConnect (Part 1)
SimConnect is the API that third party programs use to communicate with the simulator.
