#428913 Hi All

For some time now we have been unable to select a connection server by using the load server button and drop down list in FSInn.

I have created a simple installer that will now correct this issue that is available on our site here >> http://vatpac.org/cms/index.php?option= ... lect&id=15
Just download the file FSInn Load Server Fix and unzip her and then run the exe file. [64 bit run as administrator]

If you have installed FSInn other than to the default location please ensure you select your correct drive and FSFDT Root Directory location.
Example F:\FSStuff\etc\FSFDT

If your installation is in the default location you won’t have to change anything.
The Default locations are;
32 Bit Installations C:\Program Files\FSFDT
64 Bit Installations C:\Program Files (x86)\FSFDT

When you press the “Load Server” button and then [a few seconds later] click on the drop down box you should see;

For those who wish to manually fix the issue
Navigate to your ….FSFDT\FSCopilot\FSInn Directory
Open your VATSIM ini file (Usually the FSInnNet1.ini)
Change the line
SIStatusurl=http://usa-s1.vatsim.net/data/status.txt
To
SIStatusurl=http://status.vatsim.net/status.txt

Save and close

The installer just saves the problems some experience with VISTA / W7 Security when modifying files.


Enjoy

#432430 that one probably wouldnt be to hard to change for anyone with the "know how" to do. FSINN already allows for the URL to be changed to a different address from the settings :)

i actually thought thats how the other folks were going to do it when i first heard of those but they seem to have chosen instead to do it via download with those.

#479485 Didn't work for me either, Ernesto. Just did a complete fresh install of FSInn on a Win 7 Pro 64-Bit and gave up on the load server fix and typed it in by hand. Will say, however, that FSInn worked flawlessly as soon as I found a server on the list that was working. Finally went to VATSPY and pinged servers there to find a good one for my area.

The key is attention to details and follow the instructions...even if it is the 37th time you've installed it.
