Windows 10 or above.

INSTALLATION

Step 1: Download UniFly:

Once you have download UniFly from:

https://unifly.gg/setup.exe

If you have trouble with the automatic installer, download the NonPreReq Installer here: https://unifly.gg/UniFlyInstallerNoPreReq.msi and then install the following:

  1. .NET 3.5: Watch the youtube video or Go to Windows Start -> Settings -> Optional Features -> (Scroll down) More Windows features -> Tick .NET 3.5.
  2. SimConnect: Run the installer published on our website
  3. .NET 6.0.16 Runtime: Run the installer published by Microsoft
  4. Visual Studio Redistributable Package (x86): Run the installer published by Microsoft

Step 2: Allowing the MSI Installer to Run due to No Publisher/Certificate (Coming Soon: See RoadMap) - Sometimes not required, if you are able to run the "UniFlyInstaller.msi" straight away continue to Step 3.

Repair ("Verify Publisher")

Due to us not currently having UniFly Verified via signature you will need to allow the "Installer" to actually run.

To do this you will need to Right click the new "UniFlyInstaller.msi" file and choose "Show more Options" (if on Windows 11)

From here you will need to select "Repair" an error will pop up similar to the one in the right hand side: "Repair ("Verify Publisher")"

Select "Run" from this window.

Another Error will display Similar to the one in the right hand side: "Not Installed Package".

Not Installed Package

Once this has been completed you will then be able to run "UniFlyInstaller.msi" by Double Clicking it.

You will be prompted with the same "Repair: Security Warning" as before, click "Run".

CONFIGURATION

Step 4: First Time Configuration Wizard (Step 1)

Installation Wizard asking for your current file paths.

While we hope that our installation wizard has detected your installation of all your simulators this cannot always be guaranteed.

For each Simulator you will need to make sure there is a path set, more details can be found at: Client:Settings#File_Paths

NOTE: MSFS We will be requiring the location of your Community & Official Folder, all others should be pointed to the root directory of the simulator.

Click Next


Step 5: First Time Configuration Wizard (Step 2)

Step 2 | Configuration Options

On this window you will be asked to choose your preferred settings.

Log Level: How much detail do you want in your logs, During diagnostics we will ask this to be increased via settings to enhanced.

Updates: The default option of "Normal" is sufficient for most connections, however if you have a slow bandwidth connection use Slow. (This is how frequently we poll to our servers).

Simbrief UN: This is your simbrief Username/UserID

Server: Choose a server from the list with a low ping (Name - Status - Ping - Users)

Nickname: Choose a nickname to be identified by on the map and client lists.

Discord Access: Can We access discord to show you are using UniFly?


Click Finish, an "Installation Complete" message will appear.

You can always change any settings in File > Settings

You have now successfully installed and configured UniFly!

Simply connect to your Simulator, this will turn GREEN if we have connected correctly to an open simulator.


Each user will spawn in as your current aircraft

note: Large FENX models can cause your simulator to crash, for this reason we recommend using FSLTL or FLAI - Read more on our Model Matching Wiki Page

Hubs and further settings

Now you have successfully installed you may wish to Join a Hub so you can connect to your favourite community or virtual airline.

If you do not have a simbrief username set please file your flight plan's manually as this allows for model matching to work.
