Damian,Thanks for your program. It's a real nice one, keeps getting better.Question: When I setup the ActiveSky to run automatically using the FSUIPC Run Options program, it seems that the ActiveSky does not remember its last settings (update on new station OFF, for example). Is there a way to save the settings?Thanks again,Pat

Hi all, if I want Activesky to automatically update the weather (download the latest METARs automatically), do I have to have the program minimized while I use FS2002?Thanks,Bill
