    22.04.2023 at 17:34:59 Could not connect to X-Plane. Is the CLS2Sim X-Plane plugin installed and enabled? (See <CLS2Sim installation folder>/Simulator plugin installers)
    No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it
    22.04.2023 at 17:34:59 Could not connect to Simulation.

    I just did a reinstall of windows 11 and x-plane. Thanks for any help


    It seems the Microsoft Visual ++ version that comes with the CLS2SIM was not enough to allow the plugin to load. It was solved by installing the latest version.



    Maybe you sorted this now, but I had same problem. Apparently according to Diego who sorted this for me, the CLS2SIM will not connect unless the aircraft is on the runway.
    You apparently cannot connect if the aircraft is initially in the air.
    Stick it on a runway and it works fine
