The original functions are part of the DLL used from C++ but they are encapsulated in the managed DLL - the pages you gave links to already explain this so I am not 100% sure how you would like us to update the documentation. Can you elaborate on this?

Best regards,

If you start looking directly in the SimConnect API Reference (https://docs.flightsimulator.com/html/index.htm#t=Programming_Tools%2FSimConnect%2FSimConnect_API_Reference.htm)

they are listed as working and if you then follow the tree down to the Functions they are listed there as well. The only word that they are deprecated is in the Notes on .NET (https://docs.flightsimulator.com/html/index.htm#t=Programming_Tools%2FSimConnect%2FProgramming_SimConnect_Clients_using_Managed_Code.htm)

It would be good to have the "deprecated for managed SimConnect" directly in the API Reference. So if later some stuff is "different" between both APIs it is visible directly in the Page for each method. Or add a "copy" of the API reference for the manged SimConnect Part as well.
