Having trouble running V-pilot

Eric Cartier 1357735

Recommended Posts

I am stumped. I load a flight into FSX , AC on the ground simulator paused, open V-pilot and I get an error message : "SimConnect Error: VERSION_MISMATCH 5"

Actually it says this anytime I open v-pilot, FSX running or not.


I am running v-pilot version 1.1.5901.24775

I have the FSX default aircraft rule set downloaded (I don't have any other add on aircraft)

I installed the Service Pack1 for FSX

I am running both FSX and V-pilot as Administrator

I read (and followed) the configure guide with v-pilot

I read the FAQ here on the forum which helped for other parts of the process and getting a better understanding of how all the vat sim client programs/ AC add on rules fit together.

But now I cannot find info on what's wrong or what to do next based on the error message. Searched the forum, searched the Internet, nothing specifically relating.

I could use some help.

When I try to run FSX with the SP2 update it says: " This graphics card does not meet minimum requirements for shader support. This product requires a geForge3/Raedon8500 cl[Mod - Happy Thoughts] or better graphics card. Flight Simulator will now exit."


So The system requirements for SP2 are:


Windows Vista, Windows XP

2.0 GHz processor with 1GB of Ram

DX9 Shader model 2.0 graphics card and 256MB of video memory

30GB free hard disk space


I do not have the dedicated graphics card/ memory. I do have 2GB or RAM though.


Can I run FSX with a lower quality graphics setting?

That's what I had to do before I installed SP2
