    Hi Jeffrey and Members,

    installed the lastest version of SODE today. Unfortunately it does not work. I installrd it in \ProgramData. The installation process runs without errors. I do not have SODE in the sim menu. Platform Manager .log tells me: No target simulator.

    Any help? Thanks!

    Cheers, Dieter

    Hey Dieter,

    Which sim is that? P3D v3.3, 3.4 or 4? If you open the SODEPlatformManager.exe, are there any problems when trying to register for the target sim?
    Can you then go to C:\ProgramData\12bPilot\SODE\log and post the files SODE.log, PLTMGR.log and PLTMGR_DETECTION.log here?

    Thanks.

    Ok Jeffrey, many thanks for your quick reply. It’s P3D V4. No SODE registration problems for P3D V4.

    Thanks for the files.

    The only missing link could be that Prepar3D has not correctly added SODE to the add-on list.
    Can you go to C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 and post the contents of the add-ons.cfg file? Also, C:\Program Files (x86)\12bPilot\SODE\P3Dv4\add-on.xml

    In P3Dv4, under Options -> Add-Ons. Is there an entry for SODE in the list?

    A certain indication if SODE is correctly loaded is the simconnect.log.
    You need to create a simconnect.INI file in your %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Files.
    The contents of that file:

    [SimConnect]
    level=verbose
    console=1
    file=simconnect.log

    Start your sim and observe that a console window (simconnect server output) is launched together with the sim. When the Scenario screen is loaded, close the sim. Now, there should be a simconnect.log file in your P3Dv4 root directory. Post it here.

    Thanks

    Herre we go 🙂

    In the meantime I can see the SODE entry under Options >> Addons.

    add-onns.cfg under ProgrammData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4:

    The simcinnect.log seems too big to post it here. It has hundreds of lines. I sent it via mail.

    Thanks for the help. Appreciated.

    Good morning Jeffrey,

    you’re correct. I uninstalled SODE and reinstalled in the folder wich SODE proposes during installation.
    What I don’t understand is how does the sim know there is an add-onn.xml (e.g. SODE)on drive C which the sim has to see/load.

    Last fall I purchased the migration tool when I switched from FSX to P3D V3. Didn’t use it however and uninstalled it.

    Some questions:

    1. Did you launch SimObjectDisplayEngine.exe manually? (Double clicking it…)
    2. In your running sim, do you see a “Add-Ons” entry in the menu tab? Is there a “SODE V1.5.2 within that Add-ons menu?
    3. Also in the menu tab, go to Options -> Add-Ons. Is there a SODE entry in the list of add-ons?

    SODE requires to have the FSX-SP2/X-PACK SimConnect version installed.
    4. Start SODE Platform Manager, go to Tools -> Check SimConnect Version. Results?

    1. Did you launch SimObjectDisplayEngine.exe manually? (Double clicking it…) YES – Had to navigate to Windows/ProgramFiles86/12bPilot/SODE in order to find it. SODE.log then shows “No Target Simulator Platform supplied. Shutting down…”
    2. In your running sim, do you see a “Add-Ons” entry in the menu tab? YES Is there a “SODE V1.5.2 within that Add-ons menu? NO
    3. Also in the menu tab, go to Options -> Add-Ons. Is there a SODE entry in the list of add-ons? YES and it is enabled

    SODE requires to have the FSX-SP2/X-PACK SimConnect version installed.
    4. Start SODE Platform Manager, go to Tools -> Check SimConnect Version. Results? “10.0.61259.0 (SP2/X_PACK is installed)”

    Thanks for your answers.

    Double clicking the SODE executable does not help, because it needs to be supplied with the information which sim is launching it. “No Target Simulator Platform supplied. Shutting down…” is the response when the user has manually tried to launch SODE, so this is expected behaviour.

    In a nutshell, you have a correctly installed SODE and SimConnect, but it is not picked up by SimConnect. There is (was) a known bug within P3Dv4, where a corrupted exe.xml prevented other installed add-ons (using the add-on.xml method) from being launched.
    This was addressed and fixed in the P3Dv4 Hotfix 1.

    Is that Hotfix 1 installed on your machine?

    Is that Hotfix 1 installed on your machine? Yes, I installed it 6/27/17 (only the client)

    Hmm, what happens when you delete the SODE.log and then launch the simulator, load a scenario and then quit the sim. Will a new SODE.log be generated?

    #1514

    mwcorder
    Participant

    No, a new log was not generated. Windows/ProgramData/12bPilot/Sode/log

    #1515

    To check if Simconnect launches SODE at all, you need to create a simconnect.log.
    My post above #1349 outlines the steps on how to create such a log. The only thing to change is the word verbose to normal.

    The only other thing I can imagine is an anti virus program blocking SODE…
