1. All FSX aircraft
Black spaces where the gauges should be, Dodosim functions not working
This is a Microsoft FSX issue rather than a Dodosim one. The problem is that the simconnect installation on your computer is not working correctly. The main reason for this is the Microsoft fsX SP1, SP2 or Acceleration updates have fail to update Simconnect correctly on some systems.
Dodosim has created a little program that will check your Simconnect. Note that this will TEST Simconnect, not repair it. Just download the file, make sure that fsX is running and run the test.
Please Dodotest my Simconnect
SOLUTION: If your simconnect proves to be broken Pete Dowson of FSUIPC fame has posted a fix on his forum, be sure to read it carefully a few times and be confident that you understand it before going ahead. We know it works but you do it at your own risk, this is a Microsoft support issue not a Dodosim one.
