VAS ACARS makes use of FSUIPC. Therefore, to use VAS ACARS with X-Plane you will need to use XPUIPC. There are multiple version of XPUIPC available. Depending on your specifix X-Plane installation, these might work or they might crash your simulator. We recommend the version below; this is the most recent version that is widely available. If this version does not work, please try another version listed at the bottom of this page.
If VAS ACARS cannot connect to FSUIPC even after having installed XPUIPC, please check whether XPUIPC is visible in the X-Plane Plugins menu. If so, please (re)start VAS ACARS with administrative privileges by Running as Administrator. Throughout our testing this has proven to work with VAS ACARS.
There are some minor parts of our flight processing system that do not work with XPUIPC, such as the pushback phase. XPUIPC only registers forward motion, therefore we cannot determine when the pushback phase starts. We are currently looking for a solution.
Other XPUIPC versions
- XPUIPC 184.108.40.206: This seems to be a newer version, but is less stable and would only recommend if the first one does not work. Note that this file is hosted by us, since the original download is not available any more.
- XPUIPC 220.127.116.11: This seems to be an even newer version, but is less stable and would only recommend if both other versions do not work. Note that this file is hosted by us, since the original download is not available any more.
