FSXWX Down

Recommended Posts

It looks as though FSXWX isn't working, cant download in the app (WX DATA initial download failed) and the site is offline. Hope it comes back, I really like it as a weather engine.

You're correct - FSXWX has stopped functioning, including the Site.   I haven't been able to use it for about five days now.    I have gone over to FSrealWX:  https://www.fsrealwx.net/    A much better weather engine, though it appears that there's a limited use of about three weeks.   I believe registration is required - not sure about any payment.

I just tried to install FSREALWX 3.0 but my malware app keeps blocking the installer process as a "PUP" type of  threat(?)

That is with full functionality, all the bells and such.
The basic weather engine keeps working ( and working well I must add ) after the trial.  
Been using it for years.

The one drawback? - slight nagware, not bad, just an inconvenience.
After a few starts it either downloads a reset / update with auto updates off or has a startup counter in it.
The settings get put back into default release. 😞 No problem - Takes less than a minute to change to your preferred.
EDIT - Just seen there is a major update - above is applicable to "my" current version - v2.04.863, unknown about new version

I didn't get the warning of a Potentially Unwanted Program at my installation.  I've used it for a few days and there doesn't appear to be any problems.   For that matter, Malwarebytes quarantines Advanced System Care as a PUP, and I've had that for donkey's years.   So, it's up to you whether to go ahead with installing it or not.

Thanks for that info, Spokes2112 - didn't know that it worked after the Trial period.   Was going to register anyway.
