SimConnect problems


28. January 2018 by Peter

I spend an entire afternoon and evening the other day trying to get SimConnect to work.

I tried everything to get it work. Double checked the files. Tripple checked them. Tried opening ports in the firewall. Tried totally disabling the firewall. No luck.

After 6 hours of frustration I finally stumbled upon a topic ont he Prosim forum. It mentioned that using windows 10 (As I do) might cause problems with port 500. On the forum it was suggested to change to 29765. And viola! After changing to port 29765 and editing firewall ports it now works.

    I feel your pain…. why, oh why, do Windows do this sort of stuff?

    Good to know you got it sorted though! I’m just about to start building my screen. At least that’s a purely mechanical activity – what could _possibly_ go wrong???
