737NG Simulator DOWN!
« on: July 08, 2018, 11:31:56 AM »
 Hello all!

So, when firing up the sim, my computer informed to wait while it completed its updates!!! :o  After that I have lost my ability to file share!  Even after trying to restore to the previous revision, I can no longer evenly connect to my other computers for file sharing.   These computers have been file sharing for years and now.... well... thanks microsoft... 

The computers CAN see each other however file sharing can only happen one way.

Anyone out there experience this issue or give me somewhere to look into fixing this issue?

1st.  I have gone through and verified that all my file and print sharing is selected for private and public.
2nd. Verified that password protection is turned off
3rd. Confirmed that all files for sharing are set to everyone and that "everyone is still set to full control in the security tabs.
4th. Insured each computer still had its own assigned IP address and that there were no conflicts.

Computers all wired to a switch ( not using wireless ) and setup as below

** SIM1; Win10 Home edition,  (went back to build 1709 after 1803 crashed my file sharing)
              -CAN ACCESS SIM3 FILES
             - CANNOT ACCESS SIM2 FILES

               Software:
               P3Dv4
               Project Magenta MCP
               FSUICP

**SIM2;  WIN7 Home edition
               -CAN ACCESS SIM1 FILES
               -CAN ACCESS SIM3 FILES

               Software:
               Project Magenta PM Systems
               Project Magenta CDU
               Project Magenta Sounds
               FDS.IT I/O board software
               WideClient

**SIM3;  WIN10 Home Edition, Build 1803(cant go back option not available)
               -CANNOT ACCESS SIM1 FILES
               -CANNOT ACCESS SIM2 FILES

              Software:
              Project Magenta Glass Cockpit
              Project Magenta RCDU
              Wideclient

Another question for you guru's out there.  Would it behoove me to upgrade to WIN 10 Pro for networking my computers together or is that a silly notion that really wont get me any more advantage in this file sharing issue?

Thanks Guys,
               
James

They got rid of home groups on 1803.  You can still file share but it needs to be done a bit differently.  My suggestion would be to get all of the systems on to the same version, 1803.
You then need to make sure that the login for each computer is the same.  Username and password.
Then you have to go and manually share each folder again to get things working.  It's a pain in the butt, but it does work.

and how to do the shares the old fashioned way:

Oh I forgot to add, you really won't gain anything useful by going to windows 10 professional.

Yes! I just experienced this a couple of days ago myself. Same thing.. computers shared perfect for years. I have't solved it yet. I suspected a windows update. I posted on the Prosim Forum looking for help as well, but still none of the ideas from there have worked.

  I have managed to get 2 of my network PC's seeing each other again..but the server can still not file share with Client 3, however client 2 and client 3A can now see files both ways.

I am getting a "Can't Access (computer name here)" when trying to access Client 3.
I've done everything I can think of to get rid of that error, but nothing has worked. I had pretty much given up as I thought I was alone so have ordered an old I7 PC to replace Client 3. Odd thing is, Client 3 can see the files on the servor. !

My advice, go back over everything and make sure everything is set to share. There were some folders I had missed but things still worked before. Turn on your firewall and look for things that can't get through and allow them access. Check your ports, the Updates may have closed them without you knowing.

My sim didn't shut down but I was having issues, ACARS Com errors, PFPX not sending Data to TOPCAT etc.. I could still fly inputting my own info into the CDU but that was a pain. I'm now at the point where it says it can't send data, but it actually does get through???  Beats me. Never had this error before either.

Today after 2 days of headbanging the sim is working again, and I can send  flightplans and the rest of the data to the CDU through PSU via TOPCAT.

I think I tried every U Tube related to this error I could find..none worked for me. Try them yourself though..may get lucky. I'm waiting on a 2nd hand I7 as this ole Pentium just doesn't seem to want to allow file sharing anymore.

Sadly, I can't put a finger on what I did that actually got client 3 talking to the servor again and I'm thinking it will revert back to not working again, hence looking for another PC.

I will keep you posted if I find a solution  This is the U Tube of the error I got. This didn't work for me..might for you provided you're getting the same error.

Jason, Thanks I will give it a these a try this thursday when I get back to the SIM.  Especially about getting them all to build 1803 and same sign in.

Ed. I feel your pain, I have been at this problem for three days now and still no joy. Hence my reason for finally posting for help here in the forum.  Like you I get the " No permission to access" even though the computers can see each other over the network.. :huh:  Keep us posted if you continue to have success or not.  I will update if I get this girl back up and going again, and what I had to do as well.

Yeah that 'no permission to access' can happen if you are not using the same username and password on every computer.

Hi all, my Worldflight crewmate and PC guru Thomas Dellenbach distributed this amongst Worldflight Perth teams the other day!
"Windows 10 update 1803 has removed home groups which will affect file sharing and causes problems with applications such as Active Sky if you run it over a network. In order for a LAN PC to show up under network, you will need to go to Services (Local) > Function Discovery Resources > set Startup Type to Automatic, select Start, select apply and click on OK".

this should solve your issues!

I think it has something to do with upgrading graphics DLLs. Last time it happened, the FlyElise software no longer recognized the projectors.

Followup as promised.

I believe that I have a lot more going on than the usual file-sharing protocol issues.  I have gone through all the kind submissions above and still have no joy.  What is interesting though is that after performing the below:

Type netsh winsock reset and press Enter.
Type netsh int ip reset and press Enter.
Type ipconfig /release and press Enter.
Type ipconfig /renew and press Enter.
Type ipconfig /flushdns and press Enter.

Then rebooting the computer, I get the message:

"Your computer appears to be correctly configures but the device or resource (SIM1) is not responding.:o

I am now on the verge of looking for my five pound sledge hammer...LOL

Odd thing is that SIM1 still two way file-shares with SIM2 no problems.  Its only one way file-sharing with SIM3.

Anybody able to offer any ideas on this crazy situation?

Update 2.0

So after scouring the MS web sites I have learned that I am not the only one effected.  Many out there have effectively had their networks come to a screeching halt.  The work arounds that are being offered will work depending on your version of WIN10 that you have.

If your computer was fresh install with WIN10, the work-arounds seem to work

If your computer was upgraded to WIN 10.....well...you might have a problem like me. So, until MS comes out with something to fix this I believe I might be left with two choices.

Format C: and install WIN7 64 again OR
Wait for MS to release and update

So pleased I stuck with Win 7, sim is running great! I think it's a good option especially with Prosim which was designed on Win 7

What happens with W10 Pro version? Do the updates screw that up? I put that on Karen's computer last year because of network issues with the free Home Edition, as well as MS Office 365 issues with the home version.

After going to the Pro version, no more issues ever; although, it's not for flight simulation, it was still a problem with Windows updates (like always). I suggest everyone turn off auto updates and read through the items update list of the readme file from Microsoft and only update the items you think might be needed...

I am curious though, did you try any system restore points, even the auto restore ones? Go back about two update periods and see what hapoens...

You can also fresh install windows 10. That's what I do any time a new major release comes out.

John, from what I have read and understand your system set up should be just fine. Its the dummies like me who upgrades from a previous windows version ie (win7) to WIN10.

Jason.. Doing a fresh install of WIN 10 is an Idea I should look into.

Gwyn,...Yes sir!!  Smart man for leaving your system as is!!  I wish I had done the same. LOL

For now I am going to walk away for a few days and give my brain a rest. The few synapses I have left I need to keep!! LOL

I do not believe that MS is going to release an update to fix this. They want you to buy the next (eg, Home to Pro) OS in the price range to get back the functionality you  lost. Yup if you dig into your wallet you can have it back.....

I would not quite go there. They have actually opened up the opportunities with the home vs. Pro versions. The memory and hard disk space limitations used to be significantly lower for the home version.
I currently have two home version windows 10 1803 builds networked and one windows 10 pro 1803 with no issues. These were fresh installs and not upgrades.  While the upgrade process is a lot less bumpy then it used to be there are still lingering issues versus a fresh install.
