Thanks pop.

Do the PTT issues seem to be resolved?

Does this happen while a previous version is installed?
Or is this a fresh install?

If a previous version is installed, the easiest thing to do would be to remove it via add and remove programs.
Then run the new installer.

FYI - Same error when I uninstalled it via Control Panel

Thanks sgraypgh,

I take it you're all ok now by adding the hidden.vbs file?

No, still cannot uninstall or install with manually adding the vbs file.

OK.

You'll have to excuse me as I don't know your computer skill and I'm not trying to teach you to suck eggs or anything of the like... :D

1. Is the file you created named only hidden.vbs
ie. not hidden.vbs.txt

2. Is the file blank?
Nothing written in it.

3. Is the file located C:\Program Files (x86)\Roo\Simcom X\hidden.vbs
(Or in the Simcom X folder if you installed elsewhere).


What error appears if the above is correct?

The only reason I ask is that I replicated the issue after it cropped up, in order to find the easiest way to uninstall that particular version.

But if it's definitely not working all is not lost...

Running an uninstaller like REVO Uninstaller will clean up any app that fails to uninstall.
I actually use it now and then to check for apps that I think I've uninstalled and clean up the bits that were left behind.

To use....
1. Run Revo
2. Select (Highlight) SimCom from the list of installed programs.
3. Click the Uninstall icon on the top toolbar (5th from the left).
The simcom Uninstaller will pop up and fail as before, close it.

4.Select Advanced and click scan in REVO.
Give it a few seconds whilst it looks for everything to do with Simcom.
5.Once it displays what it's found, CHECK TO SEE THEY ALL HAVE ROO or SIMCOM in their name, click select all and delete.
6.Again it will display another screen with all the files to do with Simcom.
Again making sure they all have something to do with Roo or Simcom, select all and delete.

That will clean your PC of everything to do with SIMCOM so you can Install the latest version.

This Bug is only in this particular version.
Other versions will be fine during uninstall.

I've never written anything with FSUIPC so I'd have to do a bit of reading up first.
The same goes for Xplane which I do have plans to include.

Thinking about it, if I did include FSUIPC that would then enable auto switch for Xplane, FS9 and maybe FlightGear users?

Simcom X is intended to be of help to JoinFS users and JoinFS doesn't have FSUIPC support at the moment.
Although I suppose FSUIPC would eliminate the need for me to write a Xplane specific plugin.

As any SIM (or no SIM) can manually tune, It's one for the back burner at the moment.



Further to the above, How does Teamspeak see the controllers? Or Discord, et al, their routines may be available and usable by a clever wee bunny like you, Roo!!!

I believe they use Direct Input.
I'm also using Direct Input, but they must have some black magic going on to help them out.

The PTT should be fixed Grumpy in the latest version available for download.

I'm checking if a button is pressed slightly differently.

Any bugs with the latest version?

Or does it seem to be doing everything as it should?
