INVALID FORCAST UPLINK

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

May be simply overlooking stuff but i have reread the manual so many times. (162/163).

 

ASN option set (Auto Load simulator Flight plan)

 

I create a flightplan in PFPX and export the route and WX file to the default locations.

 

The datalink system works perfectly and I get everything set up correctly.

 

However, when I now go into the forecast page and request the winds, i get the topic title error message when trying to load it in.

 

 

After this I loaded ASN with the flightplan, I changed the PMDG>>Options> Simulation pg7 > Create and Load FSX plan to FSx.

 

 

Still nothing, am i going wrong somewhere, or do you think this is a one off and I need to have the above set before requesting my initial datalink

Don't put the WX file in the PMDG WX folder anymore. Load your f/p in the FMC and then request your weather. Not sure if that's the actual problem, but that's how I did mine and it worked like a charm.

Thanks for your reply, but the manual says the following:

 

The PMDG 777 looks in the [FSX]\PMDG\WX folder for a file named XXXXYYYY.wx, where XXXX and YYYY are the active route’s origin and destination airport ICAO codes. This file should contain wind and temperature data for the waypoints along the route in a specific format."

I think what he means is not to let pfpx export a wx file since asn will create one once the fp is loaded. Pfpx wx file is static vs the one from asn which dynamic and is always updated

Hi guys,

 

Fresh flight and I cannot load the winds at all now. I get the above error message at the start of the flight.

 

I am thinking that I should just do a fresh install, I'll get back to you

After loading the flight plan into FSX, ASN will detect that and then export the wx data to [FSX]\PMDG\WX

 

If this didn't happen; then are using the ASN in a network configuration?

I am using the ASN in a network configuration and unfortunately the ASN did not detect the FSX flight plan.

I waiting ASN team to reply about this issue

No, I am using it on a single machine, I guess by having the setting set 'fsx plan to wx file' in the fmc, all i need to do is export the wx file from PFPX?

I am having the exact same problem.

 

From the data uplink, Route, Performance and Wind data is loaded without a hitch in the FMC.

It's the descent forecast which won't upload and I get the error message on FMC "Invalid Forecast Uplink"


btw using PFPX for my flight plans and ASN Live Weather mode (on the same machine)

No Complex stuff in ASN. Default settings.

I have the same problem. FMC shows 'sentREQUEST' . I can't do anything about it.

Over the course of the flight is ASN updating the weather? When going to listen to your destination ATIS on 122.02 does the time stamp update as the flight goes on? Following the intro manual page 163 and for some reason ASN will not update. Stays static even though in live mode at to download every 10 minutes. Was like that for a six hour flt.

This is how I have mine set up. In the FMC page 7 of the simulation option, I have "create and load to fsx". In PFPX I no longer export the wx file. Remember once a flight plan is loaded into ASN, it will automatically generate a wx file and it generate a new one everytime you request wind data and descent forecast in the fmc

No need to export from PFPX; ASN will do all. After requesting the flight plan in your FMC, the 777 will create the FSX plan and then the ASN will generate the WX file, at end the FMC will load this WX file.

 

Use PFPX for planning and ASN for weathering.

SOLVED:

Introduction manual page 163-165

-

In short

STEP 1 :

on ASN this option must be checked

455.jpg

-

STEP 2 :

 

In Your 777 FMC

Go to PMDG Setup > Simulations >Option

Browse to NXT PAGE .. I believe on Page 7 there is an option

FSX PLN FILE FOR WXR :  Which should be set to  > CREATE FILE AND LOAD TO FSX

As someone mentioned earlier dont export the wx file and delete any previously exportes wx files in the folder.

Let the fmc create a file itself ( which the fmc option says) and that will solve it

But step 3 clearly says that this must be done, I am very confused.

What is the other option (the default one) on that page 7/7 for then? FSX PLN FOR WXR?options

 

Guess PFPX only needs to convert to rte now

I had the same prob - went to WX folder and found wx files from previous flts - exported from PFPX ( flying EGCC -LOWS) .

Erased ALL files went in FMC to upload weather and worked OK as previous replies to this topic

Could be FMC looked in folder and found the wx file from the same flt I flew in morning.

Now stopped PFPX exporting to PMDG .

I left the WX folder open on my desktop to see what happened after erasing all and when the request went through a wx file appeared in the empty folder from ASN.

All the best

Dude just export the route from PFPX and not the wx file. Let ASN create the wx file

Had the same problem with the descent forecast link.

 

Go back into ASN and reload your FSX flightplan. Now try again in the FMC. For me it solved the issue.

How do you load the descent forecast data uplink into the FMC? What page?

 

A little off topic mate, but it's progress page, descent>> forcast.

 

 

Any update with things? I am still getting the exact same issue

Just an FYI, I don't load my flightplan into ASN, and the FMC grabs the winds just fine. I to am having troubles with the descent forecast, but I just put them in manually, no biggy.
