My VPilot client seems to be failing to connect to MSFS - the simulator is running but when I go to connect it gives a “Command failed. Please ensure that a supported simulator is running” error. It finds the community folder when running a scan, so it is able to locate the simulator, just not connect to it. This problem crops up when running VPilot as admin and when running it normally. I’ve set up an exception for it in my antivirus, but had no luck with that either.
After doing some research, the only thing that seems to work is shutting down the sim, deleting the SimConnect.xml file and starting the sim up again, but this isn’t a viable option for the long term. Is there a more permanent solution to my problem?
