With (5) simconnect.xml files how can you "know" which one is actually being used? On my system the file is located:

C:\Users\$user\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX

Likely this is not the correct location for FSX SE.

Note the XML tag "Disabled" tag snip above. This XML value of "True" marks the line disabled. This is XML's way of making a "comment" line. Careful reading of the XML file shows that NONE of the "pipes" are actually active. Your entire simconnect.xml file is basically one long "example/sample".

I'm sorry but someone else is going to have to carry this ball from here on. I don't have FSX SE and this has exhausted my support knowledge of simmconnect.xml

Hi Keith, the website says if you run the simulator as the administrator, then you have to run PE as the administrator, otherwise it won't work. How do you run PE as the administrator?

Honestly, I run FSX:SE exclusively every day and don't have this issue. I had to install the SimConnect that came with the PE client. I have the PE Client set for "run as admin" and that's the EXE that ends in "_fsx"

Also, I checked FSX and it's not set for "run as admin".

Versions of SimConnect I have installed:

60905
61215
61242
61259

They were all installed for good reasons, but now that I'm stable, I never thought to remove any of the extras. The ONLY FSX:SE error I've ever had as an old plane with a specific weird font setup that crashes the app.

Overall, if you can't run FSX:SE and PE together, you've made this too hard somehow. It's not the PE app and it's not FSX:SE. Do a clean install and start over because it's not the software, it's the steps you followed to get it to this place. I would make sure to install the PE client, the SimConnect that comes with it and run the client as admin

i am having the same issues connecting.

Windows 8.1 - up to date
FSX:SE - Never had FSX installed on this machine before
Installed PE
Removed the old version of Simconnect.
Installed the version of Simconnect that came with PE
Running PE as administrator
When i try to launch PE (it does see FSX because if i am not loaded it will say unable to locate aircraft position.
Once PE is launched and i try to connect, i get a Protocol Error in the command line window.

Searched and verified there is no other versions of simconnect.xml

I have browsed through the forums and cannot seem to find anything else to try :(

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.



here is my simconnect xml file

I use FSX Steam. I have Legacy FSX previously installed and have removed it. I really want to use Pilotedge. I have tried getting the simconnect client to work, but it simply won't. I realize that this can be tricky when using a machine that has both legacy-fsx and fsx-se on it. I have combed many webpages and have tried multiple solutions to no avail. I am by no means very handy with computers either which doesn't help. If anyone out there ever wants to try and help a guy try to get this going please let me know. I would be forever grateful. I will update my system someday, but it simply isn't in the budget right now. I just want to use Pilotedge. It seems like such a great addition to an already addictive hobby. I currently have an i7 920 with 6 gigs of ram at 3.3. It actually runs fsx-se pretty nicely, and I am getting about 35-40 fps on three monitors. Just throwing it out there.

Just released v1.0.3 with a more concrete dependency on simconnect and specific support for FSX:SE.
