Asa Not Updating Fsx Weather

Recommended Posts

Hello,I have installed ASA, and it seems to have installed OK. When I try and use it to generate weather in FSX, it does not seem to be communicating with FSX, and no weather updates occur. I am using FSX Acceleration, and it is NOT a network (I do have a registered version of FSUIPC installed). ASA seems to be communicating with the servers and downloads weather, but does not update it to the sim. All I get is "Fair Weather". ASX (which I upgraded from) still works perfectly well, and is able to update the weather in FSX just fine.I was wondering if this might be a Simconnect issue? I even tried the "downgraded" SP1 version and still no joy. ASA seems to find FSX, because I can launch FSX from within ASA.Any help would be appreciated.ThanksBill

Hi Bill,Sorry for the problem. It could be a communication problem because FSX weather should automatically switch to User Defined.Please post your ASA_log.txt file and we'll take a look.Thanks,

Hello,I seem to have a simular problem. I am using FS9 and ASA seems to run fine. I am able to download weather, look at maps, start FS9 etc. However, I don't seem to have any comunication with FS9. There is no change in my weather and when I try to create a "Piliot report" I get a message that I must be connected to FS9.I would send my ASA_log.text file but I don't know where it is.I am using Vista 64.Thank you for any help.Ryan Jones

Hey guys, I seem to be having the same issue. Jim...I remember this happening when I first installed ASX....cannot remember what we did to correct it, but it may have been removing the SIMCONNECT entry and reinstalling ASX right over the current installation.Here is my Log...not sure what this has in it, as I was playing around trying to get the weather to load.Note: If I went into FS weather, and clicked on user defined, and hit OK, the weather displayed...or, if I started FSX then started ASA it also seemed to work better...again, this seems to be similar to what happened after installing ASX initially.Thanks.BrianFSUIPC 4.4.0.0EDIT: Just tried again, and my issue seems to be very similar to Bill's. If I start ASA then start FSX via ASA, I get the 'fair weather' scheme selected under weather. After going into 'user defined'. and custom, and OK, nothing changed. I then shut-down ASA with FSX still open. Restarted ASA with FSX open, and everything installed as it should, including the currect weather, and under 'weather' was selected 'user defined', not 'fair'.I am attaching another ASA_Log

Thanks Jim, I know you guys will get it sorted. See my edit.BTW, I just earlier flew a quick flight with ASX (as I was having the issue with ASA) and everything worked great.

Jim,I was able to get ASA running, and updating after a complete, uninstall, re-install. And then only if I started FSX FIRST, and then layered in ASA (This was EXACT OPPOSITE of what I had to do to run ASX properly).Thanks.Bill

Hi All,We would like you 3 to turn wake turbulence down to zero and then make a flight and see what happens. Findings and log files are most welcome.Thanks,

Here is what I did I apened ASA, turned off the winds as you asked, saved and shut down. Next I opened ASA, loaded a flight plan then used ASA to open FS9. Normally when I run FS9 I have to give it permission to run (vista) but when I use ASA to run it FS9 just opens. As before there is no comunication between ASA and FS9'Ryan

Hi Ryan,No, the wake turbulence slider, the top slider on the Wind Options screen!You aren't getting any connection because ASA isn't recognizing FSUIPC.Try running ASA As Administrator and then run FS As Administrator by right clicking on the icons. Don't use the Start FS button for now.See if you have some error logs in that same folder where you are getting that log file from.Thanks,

No go Jim. I also Tried what Bill did....uninstall/reinstall/FSX first/etc.Here are my logs. I'm also including the simconnect log. Obviously, it is not connecting.

I am sorry I mistyped, I did turn off the wake turbulance. I also thought of the same thing and restarted ASA as an administrator and then loaded my GE ground textures and then ran FS9 as an administrator. same results.Is there anything I can do to get ASA to see my FSUIPC?I also looked in the HiFi folder and there are no error logs that I can see.Thank you for you work on this.Ryan

Jim, yes that is where I am searching. Here is a picture of that root if it helps. I am using the no CD for FS9.1 dll, I don't know if this might be part of the problem.Ryan

One of the files Jim wants is called ASAlog.txt and I can see it in your screenshot, but you have an option switched on in Vista called "Hide extensions for known file types" which stops you from seeing the full filename. Please type "folder options" into the "start search box" available from the start button on the desktop, and click on "Folder Options" that appears at the top of the pane, then click on the "view" tab of the window that appears. Finally remove the check mark from the box that says "Hide extensions for known file types".

Hello JimI moved the wake turbulence slider to 0, but this did not help.I found that when i start fsx after ASA is running it will not depict the weather to FSX. When i start ASA after FSX starts it does.In the log file you can see that the first connection to FSX works fine (1 FSX 2 ASA) and after the second connection nothing happens (so it seems) (1 ASA 2 FSX)I then changed the download interval too force a new download, but after that there was no depiction to FSXI had FSUIPC installed and i removed it. I am running vista 64regards JAR

Andy,Thank you for getting involved in this issue. I did what you asked and there was no change in the files in my HiFi folder.No error log. Last night I did uninstal and then reinstal with no help either.Ryan
