vmsACARS won't open


Recommended Posts

I feel kind of stupid, but I can't get the acars.exe program to run.  I have followed the client install, installed and run makerunways, and I already have the paid version of FSUIPC.  I unzipped the ACARS.zip file to a folder of my choice, and when I try to run it I get a pop up box withe the PHPVMS logo for about 3 or 4 seconds, then it closes and nothing more happens.  I never get the entry screen where you put in your API and url, and select a simulator.  I attempted to follow the docs exactly, as well as the README.txt file in the ACARS.zip file.  Running Win10, with ver 4.8 of .NET framework.  I know I must be doing something wrong, but I sure can't figure out what it is.  Thanks,

Hi, can you post in Discord? And can you attach the logs? I would also redownload it just in case - there was a build issue that I hadn't caught earlier

Try creating an exception in your antivirus for the acars.exe file before executing it.

Hi John,

 

As others have pointed out, make sure you create an exception in your firewall/antivirus software (here's a tutorial for Windows Security which might be the best place to start)

 

Also, try running the program as an administrator. Right-click on the icon for Acars.exe, and click 'Run as Administrator' -- note, you may be required to input your account password depending on your settings. This will only work if you have administrative rights on the computer.
