ASE not generating weather

Recommended Posts



ASE (Active Sky Evolution) is not generating weather in FS9. I have recently reinstalled FS9 and ASE and regardless of the weather "snap shot" generated by ASE during the setup for a flight (or manually) the only weather I am getting is "Clear Sunny Skies".


Am running:


Windows 7 Pro

FS9 with the update


Updated ASE and tried the base ASE as well


As said, no matter what "snap shot is installed" (and done so successfully according to ASE) the only weather I get in FS9 is clear sunny skies.  And yep, have "user defined weather" checked in the sim.

Robert is pointing you in the right direction.  I had a similar problem and my system is identical to yours.  The folks at HiFi had me fixed in no time.


Win7 Pro


FS9.1 (and FSX)

ASE + Updates


However, my problem was in FSX, not FS9.  Turned out I thought I had all the updates, but missed 709.  Added to that was the fact that I missed the notice that all updates are cumulative.  I was trying to reinstall the updates in sequence and was failing miserably at it.  Turned out I only needed reinstall the base and 709, not all those in between.  I like that about HiFi and ASE.

ASE for FS9 still uses FSUIPC. Be sure you have the latest. Have a look at fsuipc.log and see if ASE registered itself. See bold lines below:

Disregard debug line. This is not the latest version.
