4. If you run FSX/P3D as an administrator, you must run vPilot as an administrator. In fact, it is recommended that you run vPilot as an administrator every time.

A: It appears that you are not running vPilot as an administrator. Try doing that.

vPilot Tips, Tricks, FAQ and Troubleshooting Guide wrote:vPilot is a simple-yet-functional client designed to get a new pilot up and flying quickly with good model matching out of the box. Although not specifically written for P3D, vPilot has also been used successfully with Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D, due to the fact that P3D supports the same SimConnect client library that comes with FSX. This means that in order to use vPilot with P3D, you'll need to have FSX SP2/Acceleration installed, or manually install the FSX version of the SimConnect library which comes with P3D.



BTW: SimConnect is not the reason for that error message; you just need to run vPilot as an administrator.

#527617 hi i really appreciate you taking the time to respond. i do think you may be misunderstanding me though. I have downloaded and then gone through the install steps but when i check the open vpilot box it simply comes up with that error immediately. then when i try to open form a desktop asd admin it still comes up with that error.

I must apologise for not being the greatest with these sorts of things and would appreciate it if you could further assist as neither option seems to work.

Thanks
