Progress Report on Export Host not valid
My Exporter Host problem was due to my renaming my FSX gamepack
FSX_gamepack instead of the original name FSX_GmaxGamePack.
Thanks go to Bill Leaming for suggesting this was the problem.
In the process of using SDE-Checker, I ran afoul of Win 7 permission/security problems which should somehow be addressed by someone with more expertise than myself. Below you can follow the process I ran through..I have fresh installs on Win7 Home Premium of
1. FSXA, loads fast with my Revo Hybrid..runs as smooth as glass.i7-2600k, not o/c'd
2. FSX SDK, gmax dual-pack export runs OK in Fs20002 side
gmax dual-pack FSX has Export File not valid.....
3. ADE-Checker 1.4.1
3.a. (missing .OCX file downloaded)
3.b. (unregisterd .OCX file registered)
4. FSUIPC 4758
(PDF File says 4751)
5. ADE150.... fresh install (never a previous version)
slightly modded airport (altitude change) compiles OK but ADE shuts down
error msg about access to some .xml appears
my system too fast...error msg shuts down way too fast
change ADE to display error msg for 5 seconds..not really enough...
7 or 8 reload/recompiles and read piece by piece error msg
recompiles leads to FSX World Scenery access denied
OK......change access/finally compiles, as it did all along, and stays up
6. Open ADE-Checker V.141
Opens up..Not OK to run ADE....fine, it's not running
CAN'T FIND ADE INSTALL PATH
ADE INSTALLED AT C:\ADE150
NO IDEA WHAT TO DO HERE- register the program?after all,it
Hovering mouse says I may have earlier version installed...sorry,no.
FS9 ALL IN RED
NO problem (for a change!)
FSX and SDK boxes checks out OK
FSUIPC box checks out OK
Click start FSX in FSUIPC box..... seems harmless, right?
FSX Module status turns red and says NOK...
Status msg says Reading: Call cannot execute, link not open
turn off FSX
now the box is green!!!!
Turn on ADE, load previous compiled .ADE file, click connect
FSUIPC Error #2 FSUIPC_ERROR_NOFS.Cannot find FSUIPC or WideFS running on this machine.
Change Security for all of FSX and give read/write permissions everywhere ....
Turn on FSX/slew, ADE is on and connected,and ADE Checker status turns to green...
Not OK to run ADE still on and cannot find .NET,.MSXML,any SimConnects
Control Panel says Uh Uh..sorry to disagree...they ARE there.
Pull up gmax Fs2002 gamepack and reconfirm it compiles my box fine
I load box into scenery,start FSX and there's my box.
Copy the SAME .gmax box into FSX gamepack
Repeat the process including guid/friendly name....Export Host not valid.!!!!!!
Recopy SDK FSX gamepack plugins into FSX Gamepack plugin...same result.
I have only one question right now...should I register ADE Editor to get ADE-Checker to work completely?
FSX being open or not changes the readings....I hate fooling with the registry.
Here is what I got for an ADE-Checker output.
