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???

    Bara en snabb fråga. Du jobbar ju som sagt med att hålla kostnaderna nere genom att göra mycket själv. Samtidigt är det ju en del saker som du har beslutat att köpa in (MCP t.ex.).
    Ungefär hur stor budget måste man ha för att nå dit du har nått idag? Jag tänker att det kan vara bra att veta innan man tar sig vatten över huvudet fullständigt 😂

      Hej Oskar.
      Sådan et tal findes ikke! Mest for at fruen i huset ikke opdager det. 🙂
      Men jeg synes man kommer langt for 500 kr om måneden i gennemsnit.
      Hilsen Peter
