Client 2.4.1 and Win 11 (or MSFSSU6) not detecting Sim

Post by TSR2 »

Hi Chaps,

Its been a few weeks since I did a VA flight, and thought I take a short hop over to Newtownards in the DH89 tonight after SU6. the client was unable to detect that the sim was running. This was a new install of the client.. so its possible I've missed something (did it need .net 2.0 or 3.0?).

Now in fairness, I completely forgot that I had upgraded to Windows 11 last week, (clean install from scratch) so I'm not certain if the issue is with SU6 or Win 11.

Has anyone any experience of either (or both)?

When I installed the client it did do the VC++ 2008 x86 install. Could that be the problem?

Any suggestions much appreciated.

Hi Ben Just loading up the sim.......... Upgraded to su6 this afternoon
I have a flight booked but will fly it tomorrow .
Spawned in EGKA in the Islander. Client working fine.
I'm still on win 10
Client v2. 4.1
On the FSA downloads page the latest client doesn't say it supports win 11
I can't see anything in their forums re problems with latest Windows

Cheers for that Dale. TBH I didn't think it was SU6, but just wanted to rule it out. Might try FSUIPC.

Can you recall are there any other requirements to installing the client other than the VC++ 2008? Just want to make sure I haven't missed something stupid. Its not a problem that they don't support Windows 11 yet, that's on me and one of the joys of going early :worried:

Only thing I can remember was you need sim connect installed and working. As far as I know that's shipped with msfs It wasn't with P3d and had to be installed from the legacy files

Maybe try installing FSUIPC as an alternative, they have a version for MSFS.
