"ok the program is activeskyv15.zip serach for that in the avsim file libary.. if any of my suggestions dont help you hopefully someone else in this forum may have a better idea"As one who has recently been there - reinstalled FS2K2 - changed the FS2002.cfg file and generally lost most of my hair the answer is, probably:the WinXP SP1 has been installed - there's a new version of Getweather recently made available at www.bearsoft.de - you need that - the old one doesn't work with the SP1 patch.Worked for me anyway.Steve
