I've only used vPilot one time, and everything went off without a hitch or hiccup, but my one time use is probably why even I don't understand what you are asking for Bill.
I assume on startup of your flight simulator you have a default flight that loads, since that is suggested by PMDG when using their aircraft. In that startup flight are you referring to the squawk code or the transponder setting of "off", "stby", "alt", etc? I assume based on your original post it is the setting, but I wanted to make sure.
If I understand the way vPilot "reads" your transponder setting, one of the last actions of the previous flight you did with vPilot active should have been to switch the transponder to "stdy" or off (unless you saved a flight en route to complete at another time).
Therefore, on start up of vPilot it should still show that last setting of "stby" or off and show that in your sim. You are saying it does not, correct, that it automatically, of its own accord, changes the mode to Charlie in the PMDG B747 after you load it in the sim (having started with a default aircraft first), even though on startup the B747's transponder was off or in stby?
You mention FSUIPC in your opening post. Is there a setting in FSUIPC that is making the transponder change in the B747 and vPilot is "reading" that change and merely "reacting" faster than the B747 transponder does?
Perhaps I should just stay out of this since I neither own the QOTS for FSX or use vPilot on a regular basis, but sometimes a disinterested third party can see "outside the tunnel" although I doubt that is the case for me...
