IvAp Install in P3Dv4 (revised-4)


How to install IvAp in Prepar3Dv4 (revised-4)

You need the following files:

  • File #1:: FSUIPC5.dll
    (Download FSUIPC5.x from this site  | non-licensed works |)
  • File #2:: SimConnect.msi {C67A3A1B-F52B-42CC-85E8-231428A09312} >>
    this file is in your P3Dv4 folder x:\P3D4\redist\Interface\FSX-SP2-XPACK\retail\lib\
  • File #3:: the usual file from IVAO >> ivap-v2.0.2-b2773.exe

Assuming you created a specific disk or installation folder for P3D v4… say F:/P3D4/ where F: is the root of your P3D4 installation DISK (thus drive F) and where /P3D4/: is the root of your P3D4 installation folder (thus folder /P3D4/).

  1. Install File #1:: FSUIPC5 (non licensed works) and check before the … /Modules folder if a previous installation of version FSUIPC5.x is already present. If so, you can skip this step 1.
  2. Install File #2:: SimConnect.msi (right mouse on the filename and install as administrator).
  3. Create a copy of the file Prepar3D.exe (it’s in the root of your P3D4 installation folder)
  4. Rename this copy to fsx.exe and leave it in the root of your P3D4 installation folder.
  5. Install File #3:: Right mouse click the file ivap-v2.0.2-b2773.exe and install as normal as administrator in the root of your P3D4 installation _disk F:/IvAp_v2
    1. Again: do not install IvAp inside … \P3D4\ …
    2. Again: do not install IvAp inside  … \Program Files  (x86)\ …
    3. Exit the MTL process and/or the TeamSpeak process when these are already installed.
  6. IvAp Configuration: since the transponder codes can only be set in standby position, don’t forget to check in IvAp v2 – Configuration enable IvAp <-> FSUIPC SDK in the section 3rd Party Tools. See picture below.
  7.  Adding the IVAO_MTL entry in simobjects.cfg
    1. Open the file  simobjects.cfg in C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\
    2. Add this text:
      [Entry.10]
      Title=IVAO MTL
      Path=SimObjects\IVAO_MTL
      Required=False
      Active=True
    3. Save the file and check the presence of the folder in … \SimObjects
  8. Do not make additions or changes to the dll.xml since IvAp will be started in another way as follows:
  9. NOW START THE SIM

  10. Manual Starting IvAp: press your Windows key and go to  the folder IVAO\
  11. Select the icon IvAp v2 – External | More and Run as administrator.
    1. 2nd (better) option: right mouse click the icon IvAp v2 – External and Add to Start, then open file location, select properties and check in the compatibility tab Run as administrator.
  12. After making CONNection and submiting your flightplan (ACARS-SEND FLIGHTPLAN) you will be visible in Webeye. Your flight results will be registered in the IVAO database.
  13. If you want IvAp started by the sim, add the following statement into the exe.xml. This exe.xml file resides in:
    C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\
  14. Open the exe.xml with Notepad++ and
    add to the end of the file, JUST BEFORE </SimBase.Document> these 6 lines:
    <Launch.Addon>
    <Name>IvAp for P3D4</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <Path>F:\IvAp v2\ivap_dllhost.exe</Path> <CommandLine>ivap_fsx.dll</CommandLine>
    </Launch.Addon>
  15. Adapt your path of your IvAp v2 installation as in
    <Path>F:\IvAp v2\ivap_dllhost.exe</Path>
  16. Do not change the CommandLine statement
  17.  Save the file and run the sim.
  18. You will find IvAp as normal in your Add-ons menu together with FSUIPC a.s.o.

User Issues

Transponder codes reset to 1200:
the transponder codes can only be set in standby position

Weather: strange effects?
Disable the weather engine in the IvAp Configuration panel, section Weather.

MTL: during the flights you will see the other aircraft as well as other pilots will see you, as long as both ends fly P3D4.
You will see only “lights” or ” black textures” from those aircraft that are not developed in a 64 bits version.

IvAc ATC Client Set Up


Deze maand gaan we wat extra aandacht besteden aan IVAO. Deze pagina gaat over hoe je de IvAo virtual ATC Cliënt installeert en welke plaatjes je voorbij ziet komen.

(Om met IvAo te werken, moet je wel een IVAO- account hebben).

  • Download allereerst het bestand ivac-v1.2.4-b225.zip en unzip dit.
  • Je krijgt een executable met dezelfde naam en om te installeren, klik je rechts en installeer je als Administrator.
  • Volg de plaatjes en kijk goed bij de laatste…
  • We gaan er van uit dat je TeamSpeak2 al geïnstalleerd hebt.
