Trackir 5 stop working with fsx

by kakarat23 » Wed Dec 07, 2016 2:02 pm

I am unable to get trackir 5 to work with fsx. the program runs but when fsx starts it minimizes but i have ho tracking movements. Both lights are on and i can block the visor inferred beams which causes 1 light to go off as it should. I have updated it but has same issues. How do i get it to work with fsx again?

kakarat23,

What view are you in, in the plane? What version of FSX are you running?

The TrackIR seems to be working fine, it seems that FSX isn't reacting to the information it is receiving.

Today, Dec16, Win10 did an update and TrackIR 5.2 stopped working. I installed v5.4.2 and the program works but doesn't find simconnect in P3Dv3. TrackIR 5.2 worked perfectly. Each time I have tried to update, the program has stopped working or will not find the sim. I'm using Win10 Pro x64. I fly P3Dv3.

The program window shows the camera is working, it registers all head movements but will not connect to the sim.

so the issue with trackir 5 and FSX was fixed but I've been off for few months and the issue returns. I'm running windows 10 64bit and fsx not the steam version. the trackIR sims to connect when FSX starts but the motion is not communicated the lights on the Track IR system do come on. Is there a way to fix this error?
