              I can't get over how flexible and well written this utility is.

              I can't get over how flexible and well written this utility is.

              Recently, I started using the handy "External Application" and "Application Settings" to Launch External Apps with DCS.

              TrackIR was painless. I noticed DCSFlightPanels would launch, but when I would try to load a DCSFlightPanels Profile for a DCS plane, I would get an error:
              "The system cannot find the file specified."
              Code:
               ---   DCSFlightpanels_error_log   ---
              
              System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception
              The system cannot find the file specified

                 at DCSFlightpanels.MainWindow.RestartWithProfile(String bindingsFile)
              SOLUTION:

              All I had to do was edit the Environment Variable for my local account and add the Path of the DCSFlightPanels Executable to the PATH. Just like the good old DOS 3.1 days.

              Many thanks, again to Skate Zilla

              FYI: In the CURRENT BUILD: 10.2.2020 you have a minor typo in Appplications Settings - there is an Extra "P"

                  The DCS Updater GUI Utility earned its place on my TASKBAR, a long time ago.
                  Keep up the great work.

                    DCS Updater wont work anymore for soime reason - When I tell it to launch in either VR or Non-VR it acts like it's starting but then immediately quits. Any ideas?

                    I tried deleting the ocnfig files as well as a fresh download of the latest version

                        How to get SteamVR to be recognized?

                        I love the updater! So nice to be able to update without running the sim. I have a PiMax 5K+ and of course DCS uses SteamVR but I don't see a way to access it from your UI?

                        The location for SteamVR is C:\Users\Scott\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Steam But I cannot browse to that folder from your UI.

                        As a software dev myself with over 25 years experience I really appreciate the work you put into the Updater!

                        Thanks,

                          SteamVR should be auto detected if installed.

                          \Program Files\steamapps\common\SteamVR\bin\win64\vrmonitor.exe

                          There's a SteamVR Button on the Home Screen under external apps and you can set steamvr as default in the application settings menu under default vr API

                            Speaking of Steam VR API, I sent you a PM which you can ignore as I started using the updater and finally FINALLY got Oculus to stop loading with DCS! I'd still like to know what switches you throw to default it to the Steam VR API but so long as Oculus does not run unless I tell it to I am happy!

                            Thanks for this SkateZilla!

                                Apologies if this has been asked before, but I'm trying to host DCS on a Win Server 2016 cloud based platform. The browser is Internet Explorer. The updater utility appears to be properly configured, is connected to the Internet and DCS Update servers, but all I get is a blank screen when I launch the local Web GUI. Any thoughts? Thank you!

                                  But when you launch DCS in DED. Serv Mode it takes time to launch and load, then launch the web GUI.

                                    Haha, yep, unfortunately Win Server 2016 blocks Chrome and Edge. Go figure. Can be worked around, but takes time.

                                    I've given it ++ time, but no joy. DCS DED definitely launches normally, but the web GUI won't load. I have a friend who launches DED on his web server, but then links to it from his desktop web GUI. He'll walk me through it and I'll let you know.

                                      I have the 2.5.6 stable version installed (with virtually all mods and maps) and want to install the 2.5.6 OpenBeta to access a certain server. Can the GUI Updater help me to install a minimal OpenBeta build (just default mods and maps)? If not, how to avoid getting the whole thing downloaded once more in an OpenBeta path?
