Download Metar

Recommended Posts

Guest dude

HelloIts my first time to use Active Weather for my FS2002.The version i am using is 1.92.4.Everything seems to be okay for getting the metar for my departure airport. But the winds aloft dont seem to be updated. Also when im trying to choose offline mode and "AutoDownload-Create New" there is nothing happen. When im choosing WX Briefing i only get timeout error after a while. Im using dsl and dont have any problems with my internet connection. Also i tried out to get the data with disabled Firewall. Nothing works. Does anybody had the same problems and can help me?Thank you.Michael

HiThank you for immediate answer. Here is my ini file:[General]WXREOfflinePath = C:ProgrammeActiveSky wxREExportPath = C:ProgrammeActiveSky wxREOperationMode = OnlineDefaultOfflineFile = expcycle07Z.wxdDisableCloudTransitions = FalseDisableMessages = FalseLowBandwidthWinds = FalseExportMetars = FalseAutoTimeZoneDetection = TrueMETARUpdateInterval = 15FDUpdateInterval = 45UpdateMETAROnNewStation = TrueUseShortTermTAF = FalseWindsAloftSimulation = TrueFS2004Writes = FalseIdlePriority = FalseVATSIMMetars = FalseDefaultForceRange = 60ZuluConversion = 1RainVisReduction = TrueOvercastHorizonVis = TrueDisableForceWindUpdates = FalseTAFProcessing = FalseWakeTurb = TrueDisableUpdatesWhenForced = FalseStartPaused = FalseCloudTransitionInterval = 30MinimumCloudThickness = 200UseSystemTime = TrueDisableCAVOKClouds = FalseProxyAddress = NONEProxyPort = 80I just tried it out standing in LSZH for a flight to EDDV. Using Online Mode. I got the correct weather for LSZH and also for EDDV. But when i tried out to get the wx briefing i only got timeout errors for 7 times after pressing "Process". Then i gave it up and now im here again.Michael

Ugh... ZoneAlarm.. This is known to cause all kinds of problems with many internet applications. Unfortunately it cannot be uninstalled either, it always leaves traces and requires windows re-install to actually remove entirely.Not sure that is the problem, but perhaps you can find a way to make sure that wxRE is permitted in all ways to send and receive from the internet. Not familiar with ZA (only from other user's experience) but there should be a way to "auto detect" an application's requirements to make sure its all set.Does that help?
