I'm back to FS9 (long story) and want to VATSIM again. FSInn works fine but sometimes the ghost of nearby a/c will latch onto mine, often obscuring my view. vPilot seemed like a good utility (good reviews) so I installed it but could not connect, trying every server listed. I repeatedly got the error message "attempting to connect ... failed to connect" etc. I installed a version I'd had for a while .11 and also .12 along with .14. None had any effect on the problem. At some point, I couldn't even launch vPilot - "unhandled exception, cannot detect simconnect". I found a simconnect installer but it's for FSX and P3D.

I checked my firewall and all of the vPilot items are allowed.

I know that I was able to connect a while ago before a Win7/64 reinstall.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks

vPilot has never, ever worked with FS9 so sadly you can not have used it to connect. One option would be to use SB4.

I was wondering about that ... thanks for the clarification. I can't find a site where I can download SB4 ... it seems to have fallen off the edge of the planet. There's XSB for Xplane ... if you have the url for SB4, I'd appreciate it. Thanks, so much, for the response.
