VAFS 5 Does Not Recognize AC or Location / FSUIPC

Post by SoutheastVirtual » December 29th, 2012, 6:03 am

Did you install FSUIPC? If not, chances are that's what's causing your frustration!


VAFS uses a third-party software to interact between the VAFS client and FSX. That software is called FSUIPC. Without it, VAFS and FSX won't communicate and therefore, VAFS will not recognize your AC (aircraft) or Location (airport). FSUIPC is available at the link listed below. For the purpose of VAFS, the free version will suffice. When downloading FSUIPC, make sure you are getting the version that is made for your Flight Simulator (Prepar3D, FSX, FS2004) and also pay attention to the build version ([4.853] is the latest).


NOTICE: Some FSX users have indicated that the latest FSX version [4.853] (released September 6th 2012), is not working on their computer. The solution is to uninstall the latest version and revert to a previous version.  Previous versions cannot be found on the FSUIPC website since the owner no longer supports past versions.  If the current version doesn't work for you, try downloading the FSUIPC 4.80 attachment under the FSUIPC website link at bottom.  VAFS does not provide any support for FSUIPC related issues.

For Windows Vista and 7 users, always make sure you are installing AND starting/running everything with "Run as Administrator". This can be accomplished by right clicking the installer / application and selecting "Run as Administrator". This should be done when installing and starting FSX, VAFS and FSUIPC.

If the above doesn't resolve your situation, try uninstalling and re-installing VAFS and FSUIPC.
