WX Advantage Radar 2 entry in P3D4.5 Add-ons Menu?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello,

When i load the Falcon 50 since i have updated WX Advantage Radar for P3D4.5, in P3D Add-ons menu why is there is 2 entry:

1) Weather radar module version info Rex Wx version 1.44.1

2) Weather radar version info Rex Wx version 1.40.45

In my P3DV4 module folder i have only one MV_WXM.dll version 1.44.1 so why i have two entry?

I think the second one is the old version, how to remove this entry in my P3D Add-ons menu?

Thanks for your help.

Best Regards

I show the same thing, and for more than just one aircraft. My first thought was maybe I have multiple versions of the WX radar installed, but when I look in the Win10 Control Panel, Program and Features, I only see one installed version of the WX Radar .

What is your concern, are you having a problem with the WX Radar working correctly? If so, you may want to ask about this on the REX WX Radar Forum at

I asked this question on on previous version and was told "Normal behaviour. The module only does something if the developer uses the API. Otherwise it just occupies RAM, waiting for instructions."

Curious if anything has changed  . . .

Yes, apparently so. Regarding the two MV_WXM entries in the sim Add-ons drop down menu, REX support just posted that " One in the Sim Modules folder is the dll for the sim version compatibility  and the other is for the aircraft folder ".

However, I don't have any of MV_WXM dlls in my aircraft folders so not sure what they are for.

Check in the panel folder of the aircraft in question. 


7700K@4.8 GHz - MSI Z270-A Pro - 2x8Gb Corsair Vengeance DDR4 @3000 MHz - ZOTAC GTX 1080 TI @1683 MHz - 58" Panasonic TC-58AX800U 4K - Saitek X-55 'Rhino', ProFlight Pedals - TrackIR 5 - W10 Home 64 - P3D v4 - XP11

I had checked the main folder and panel folder for four FSW aircraft -- no MV_WXM dlls.

There is only one MV_WXM.dll version 1.44.0.1 in Prepar3D v4\modules folder for my part an nothing  in my Flacon 50 aircraft folders.

The other dll might be MV_WX.dll which is in the MilViz AC panel folders and the main gauges folder for me.

Yes, I think you may have solved the puzzle. I have a MV_WX.dll in my P3D gauges folder and it has a version # that 'almost' matches what I see in the Add-ons drop down list. The drop down list version # is 1.40.45 and the dll in the gauges folder has a version # 1.40.0.45. I don't know if that 'extra' 0 is a significant. And of course this dll has a slightly different name than the other REX WX dll.  I don't have any Milviz aircraft in P3D so can't check for that dll in the panel folder.

Thanks,

Al

Just to bring closure to this topic, I asked REX Support:

"Are there actually two different dlls involved here -- once called MV_WXM.dll (in the modules folder) and one called MV_WX.dll (in the sim gauges folder)?"

and REX support said:

"Yes, the one in the modules folder (Program Sim Compatability) allows the WX Radar to work with the Sim version and the one in gauges folder is the actual WX Radar...  "
