It's doing it again. Grrrrr got 2 days use out of it, fired off the game today and no blue light. Like before working perfectly in the other games. this is totally frustrating.

Try the simconnect reinstall.........

1 - Delete the following file folder

C:\WINDOWS\WinSxS\x86_Microsoft.FlightSimulator.SimConnect_67c7c14424d61b5b_10.0.60905.0_x-ww_429211e9

2 - Insert the FSX CD, and run the repair utility. Basically we are looking to reinstall the folder.

3 - Hopefully this should remedy the issue.

Please let me know if this helps

Didn't work. didn't work 5 days ago when I tried it before I even posted here. Didn't work 3 days ago when you suggested it for first time and I replied that it didn't work.

It was originally plugged into a built in hub on one of my monitors (powered) tried directly into PC and still getting problem occuring at random.

I am inclined to think this is simconnect, so made certain only the SP2 simconnect is in the GAC. However this is still failing.

May I be presumptive and suggest code is thus currently?

class MyClass()
{
SimConnect simConnect;

...

private SimConnect getSimConnect()
{
if (simConnect == null)
simConnect = new SimConnect(...);
return simConnect;
}

...
}

.. And obviously nullifying simConnect on error, thereby forcing a reconnect?

Will you do so in the future? I don't know how much SimConnect calls are made, but the named pipes in SP2 should give better performance than the TCP/IP communication.

Yes, it is something that we will use, when the development team has a chance to work on it.
