Open Control works, then doesn\'t, can\'t uninstall, one time workaround...

I downloaded open control,installed and opened, and WOW! was I impressed... I spent about an hour learning the steps and created the perfect (IMNSHO) layout for Cessna 172 control,tested it,and thought it the best addon for FSX I had ever downloaded... It was then time to shut down and get to work.

When I next rebooted to fly, Firefox told me the server could not be found...I made sure that Open Control was allowed through my firewall. I decided to un and re install with the OpenControl.msi, but windoze told me I did not have permission to uninstall. I deleted the open control folder and attempted to reinstall, but windoze told me that a more recent version was already installed... hmmm... I searched through ALL of the posts on this forum, and googled for help... Nada...

On a whim, I clicked the Open Control shortcut in my start menu, and lo and behold, The program installed, updated, and opened... I joyfully flew cross country, loving my new toy... then shutdown and went to bed.

The next day, I booted up, and, once again, server not found... I repeated my unorthodox method to un and re install, but no joy this time... server not found.

I am running Win10x64 home on an intell I5.

I don\'t have much networking knowledge, so I\'m kind of in the dark here...Is there anyone out there that can help me get pointed in the right direction...?

Thx for reading,

I can\'t remember how it works but I think maybe start fsx first before running open control. No point re-installing, I\'ve not released a new version in years. Its free and I\'m afraid I can\'t support it. Sorry, but hope you can get it to work.
