Hi opsmike,

Have you tried refreshing the IF10 install, just start up the installer and update the install.
Otherwise this could be a problem with the simconnect setup. Try IF without any other addons going, let me know...

Definitely sounds like simconnect is not running properly. There is something going around, once installed simconnect no longer functions correctly.

Simconnects run in parallel, if this does not work, once the simple version runs up, subsequent other versions are blocked, and higher versions cannot run side by side, IF uses the higher version for the added functionality.

The simconnect versions are found in the windows\winsxs folder.

Have a look at Larkspeed's solution to a similar problem:

Perhaps something there may help.

Over on the AVSIM forum, someone suspects the installation of certain printer drivers may corrupt the side-by-side mechanism in windows. This could be true, since it would have to be either a driver installation, or some program actively replacing the simconnect versions or changing the win sxs registry entries.
