Gents: you're absolutely NOT going to like what I have to say, so you've been warned. I work in tech support for a multinational company (although 'tech support' doesn't cover one-tenth of what I do). Our policy is:
1. Patch the current version
2. Patch the previous version if the customer has...
Does anyone know what the following image flags do?

Doug: OUCH!!!! So...
Eric: if you're using Windows 10, it introduced that particular intermittant bug some updates ago. It frustrated and annoyed me enough that I switched my main development platform to P3D, only running a 32-bit compile when I need to check compatibility with FSX.
Bill: I've found that the SimConnect forum is a bit dead for basic information. If you're now heading into C-gauge territory, there's a get-you-started section in sd2gau38.zip which retrieves the flight just loaded/just saved and does things with it.
