I am running a weather program (AS2012) on a client for Flight Simulator X (FSX) on the server. The client connects to the server by Simconnect.
Both machines run W7 Home Premium x64 and I run them with full Administrator permissions.
The SimConnect.ini file is located in a folder on the server: C:\Users\FSX_XPlane\My Documents\Flight Simulator X\
This is shared across the network with Full Control for Everyone. The owner is FSX_XPlane.
I can access and open the simconnect.ini file from the client.
When I run the weather program on the client it does not connect to FSX on the server. The system log shows that the path to the simconnect.ini file is not set (attached - time 23:06:44:0096).
The other required simconnect file paths are correctly identified.
If anyone can suggest an explanation for this, and a fix, I'd be grateful.
