smartCARS wont pick up flight simulator

Post by UAL315 Conner Rocha » August 3rd, 2018, 11:21 pm

So when i try to do a flight with smartCARS it just says it cant detect my flight sim, so i need to download FSUIPC. So I did but it always goes to FSX, and i dont want that, i want it to go to P3D v4. If anyone can help, please do.

I'm not a smartCARS user; just some thoughts...

Are you using the full (payware) version of FSUIPC? If so, are you using V5 for P3DV4? The current version is available at

Some utilities (smartCARS may be one...) ship with a free/light version of FSUIPC. If you were running FSX or P3DV3, with smartCARS, I don't know if it would automatically pick up that you have now installed P3DV4. Perhaps a reinstall of smartCARS would help.

Are other utilities - vPilot or AS, for example - connecting to P3DV4? Active Sky, I know, needs an FSUIPC connection.

Not sure if this helps... Cheers.
