    Good luck

    Stinger, what kind of joystick are you using. Over the years, I must have tried them all: Microsoft, Logitech, Saitek, Thrustmaster, etc...

    For a time there, for portable convenience, I was using Logitech's Wingman Rumblepad which has a slider for throttle control. These joysticks usually come with their own software for assigning or re-assigning buttons on the joystick. Why would you even bother doing that in a paid version of FSUIPC when you can do it using the joystick vendor's own software programs for free?

    I have a home cockpit setup with a custom built yoke. Search for Stinger2k2 on Youtube and you will see it!. Glad you got it sorted!

    I have used a Microsoft Sidewinder 2 joystick (but DO NOT get any model that says 'Pro') for 12 years now no issues, and which works perfect with no setup as it's USB and Windows 7 64 bit will installed it in 3 seconds. I unpulg it to use the USB port for card reader and when I plug joy back in to go fly it 'beeps' and is ready (working). It's around $25 at Amazon.

    OK, O'leg... the dll.xml - it's just a list of what dll files (fsuipc included) should be opened by the sim.

    go to your appdata\microsoft\FSX folder (with your username, of course)
    here: C:\Users\your username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX

    !! make a backup copy of your dll.xml before messing with it !!

    select the dll.xml file (xml is just text so notepad works fine to open and edit)
    Right-click to the menu and you should see, and be able to select, "open with"
    select Notepad to open it.

    see something like this:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>

    <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0">
    <Descr>Launch</Descr>
    <Filename>dll.xml</Filename>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad>

    <Launch.Addon>
    <Name>Traffic Toolbox</Name>
    <Disabled>True</Disabled>
    <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
    <Path>..\Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDK\SDK\Environment Kit\Traffic Toolbox SDK\traffictoolbox.dll</Path>
    </Launch.Addon>

    <Launch.Addon>
    <Name>FSUIPC 4</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled> << FSUIPC loads because it IS NOT DISABLED, so we disable it...
    <Path>Modules\FSUIPC4.dll</Path>

    Edit the "disabled" line
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>

    and change FALSE to TRUE

    <Disabled>True</Disabled>

    Save the file then restart FSX and you should see NO sign of FSUIPC
    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    If you think it's easier, remember that FSUIPC has to be "trusted" just like gauges; so, if you were to delete that single line in the FSX.cfg...
    mine looks like

    [Trusted]
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\gauges\Bendix_king_radio.dll.ireezhoubaeboqthobhbabzulbuloobtuhllzoqz=2
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\gauges\Cessna.dll.bzwabazctuwzbueqnubkwllwztuubllozhtzczla=2
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\gauges\Cessna172.dll.hbwtnutbtwiknohcqeboobaklaoboekzocwttruk=2
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\gauges\Cessna182s.dll.wbqhuuohknhhitinlrzbctocuekuoeiuoekeklue=2
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\gauges\CessnaWAlpha.dll.eiwhkboiictnrreuuhituqoezroilnelkbelbtza=2
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\gauges\Bell_206B.dll.auqruroabakwbouawnbtzzncrertownuwlckwkcr=2
    Modules\FSUIPC4.dll.brzbehqulacuckaqekwoaozabiurzqrntawllaru=1

    then when restarting FSX, you will be asked again to "Trust" FSUIPC.... DENY it - so it won't load. It may be necessary to repeat that step after you want it back; I don't know if it will ask each time or not...

    Got that all down and committed to memory; this page will self-destruct in 17 seconds

    I took an XML class some years back so I'm familiar with XML. I was hoping I could disable the add-on from inside FSX. But thanks anyway.

    By the way, the most important thing I learned from the class is how to use the comment pair: <!-- and --> :-)
