Hi Paul,
I've just checked my simMarket account and the order for the reg keys and the one for the FSCommander disk are both listed as "Pending". Looks like a wait until they've cleared the eventual cheques from Paypal.
Glad they're not Christmas present destined!

Has it not arrived yet?

If you've received your paypal notification of the monies transferred then
chase it up, my order took less than an hour!

A happy ending I hope.

After trying to isolate the problem by connecting an MP3 storage device
to this, my non FS PC, via the various components normally stuck on the
FS PC, the solution surfaced. It turned out to be a failed powered USB2
7 Port Hub. All the correct lights were flashing but the Chinese device
was clearly in a state of terminal duffness.

I've substituted an unused USB2 4 Port Hub and all is now OK. Its
failure must have coincided with trying WideFS, though the latest
version of FSUIPC does promise almost identical symptoms from its
registered version, caused by FSX bug and firewall plus antiviral progs.

BTW, I've read somewhere that connecting USB 1.1 devices to an USB 2
socket slows everything on that socket down to 1.1 speeds. But, are the
GF modules identifiably 1.1 or do they just take advantage of the
avialable transfer speed?

Now it's all working again I'm free to risk b...ering it up when the reg
keys arrive.

Hi Gerry,

It is quite common for the USB controller to become corrupted in XP,
however most users dont normally notice it as they just unplug, put it
back in and it works again. However with multiple input interfaces
this doesnt always work.

I would recommend re-installing the USB drivers, these are stored in
your i386 folder in XP (or on the disk depending on your install
options) To uninstall first you'd need to go into the device manager
and find your USB controller(s) and uninstall from there (preferable
in safe mode)

Worth trying, I normally end up doing it several times a year as I
often put any combination of devices in different ports whenever I
plug them in (a big no no in XP as it assigns a driver to a specific
port for a specified device)

All the best,

Suddenly, in either FS9 or FSX, my GF yoke, pedals and some of the
other switches don't seem to be working.
I've tried a Restore, to a couple of days ago. Fearing the
installation, but not registration, of FSUIPC 4 and WideFS, I've
uninstalled them.
The only other thing that I can think of is that the USB connection
route is corrupted. Is this possible?
