FSMetar problem

Recommended Posts

Anyone tried this? I downloaded it and all I get is an error that says "can't read a configuration file, program is endded" (yes the mispelling is correct). I'm running XP. Not much info in the read-me.Just wanted to try an altenative to FSMeteo.Thanks,Tim

Sorry Tim, can't help. You have got further than I have. I too downloaded it but have not yet found a way of installing it and I certainly haven't found a 'readme' file.RegardsDon

Loaded it right outa the download box. Installed first time. Downloaded METARS and searched to my hearts content. Strangely, with the preference set to English the first searched METAR interpretation - three graphics representing Weather, Winds and Temperature has English titles.In subsequent searches the titles revert to Spanish - the alternate available language. The readme file is part of the installation - I can email to you if you want but it won't help much.Quite a nice little proggie

The download file I received was FSMetar.msi with no instructions on what to do with it, unnless they were embedded in the Spanish on the website! Not one of my languauges I am afraid.Where does this file go and how do you get it to work?ThanksDon

I've had no problem installing, I've installed .msi files before. It's after I install and start the program is when I get the error. As it is now, it's won't run. Feel free to email me if you need help to find the problem.Tim
