No wind data on select waypoints

I asked for route data after setting up my ACARS, I'm offline, and wind data did not show up on:

I've never had a problem with this before, I either got full wind data or none at all. Why are only some of my waypoints getting wind data?

Have you loaded a flight plan on your weather program? If you have not a FP in active sky for example then you will not have wind data

No I don't have an active Sky account, I don't use any weather programs, but I've had wind data before for all my waypoints on previous flights. Including on this version of the 400. The wind data was based on the fair preselected weather settings on the FSX weather menu, so it's always a constant 270-285/25kts.

As far as I am aware the winds works only with using a weather program so the proper files are created from that program. You can also check if the FMC option to create and a .wx file is selected.

The strange thing is I've never fidled with any of the FMC's weather settings on the 777, or 747 but I always got full wind data from the route data when I asked for it.

To be honest, it's more likely that you just weren't paying attention that closely, or were only looking at the first page of waypoints that all happened to be within the 200ish mile circle that the sim has wind data for by default. The plane only gets data outside of that when the weather program knows about it.
