Issues with Default FSX Weather and ASE

Recommended Posts

I just recently bought and downloaded Active Sky Evolution as I was getting fed up with the default FSX weather causing my aircraft to overspeed due to unrealistic winds, and then subsequently crash. Now, I am having a slight issue with keeping ASE as the default weather. I have the weather set up on FSX and "User Defined". I run ASE before starting up FSX. To first get ASE to be the primary weather, after I start the flight I have to open my menu, go to weather, and hit the "OK" button (because, as stated, User Defined is already selected). Now, occasionally as I am flying I get the warning of that I am overspeeding, and looking at the MFD on the default B738, I see the winds have changed from what is showing on the ASA Weather Radar (for example, instead of from 263 @ 90kts what it should be, it is 070 at 100kts, or instead of a strong tailwind, it becomes a strong head wind). When this occurs, I re-open the menu, go to weather again and hit OK, and everything syncs back up with Active Sky. Anyone know what causes the default stupid FSX to override the ASE weather? Thanks!

To add on to this: I am running both ASE and FSX as Administrator. Also I have FSX-Acceleration installed and all drivers/programs/etc are up-to-date. My rig's configuration is:Intel i7-2600K/quad 3.40GHz, 8GB RAM, 1TB SATA, 1GB Nvidia GTX-560 Ti, WIN7

The only way to avoid wind shifts as you experience is to use ASE DWC option - please refer to manual for detailed description.
