Please ensure that a supported simulator is running (MSFS2020)

Hello, everytime i try to start vPilot, it won't connect with MSFS2020. I am using FSUIPC and SPAD.next, therfore simconnect should not be a issue.

(See attachment) 

 

I tried:

- To read the FAQ

- With both vPilot version 2.6.5 and 2.6.6.

- Reinstalling with and without admin mode

- Started both simulator and vPilot with and without admin mode.

 

What i think could be the reason:

- Installed MSFS2020 on a seperate SSD

- Ran vPilot previously on a network with P3D

 

Anyone who might have a idea?

Installing the sim on a separate drive is no problem, many people (including myself) do that without issue.

Something is preventing the SimConnect connection from succeeding. Have you ever customized the simconnect configuration on your system by creating SimConnect.xml or SimConnect.cfg files?

Might be!

But it was a few years ago. I think that was accordance with running Active Sky on a server computer.

But i can't remember what files i manipulated. Probably SimConnect.xml and SimConnect.cfg.

Do you know where these files are located? And if there is a way to revert them to their original state?

SimConnect.xml is used on the server (the machine running the simulator) and it is normally located in the appdata folder for the sim, I believe. Not sure if that's still the case with MSFS.

SimConnect.cfg is used on the client (the machine running the app that you want to connect to the simulator, such as ActiveSky.) It is located either in the same folder as the client application's exe file, or in My Documents.

To revert to default settings, the files can be deleted.
