Since about friday night, real world weather either freezes or crashes FSX for me about 80% of the time. Also at the same time, it learned to lock when I hit "Go to briefing" to play a mission. And appears to freeze for 10+ seconds after I click "OK" after selecting an aircraft or "Fly." Just suddenly started up, I didnt change anything.

I've had the same problem. When it tries to load the weather, it locks up.

Ye, i'm getting the exact same problem: It downloads 100% then crashes before the next load can happen and restarts my FS. It even restarted my pc on one occassion. I got it working last night on another account on my pc but I know loads of people who are having the same problem; some said they could download it but it had 0kt winds and silly errors and didn't update after 15 mins etc.Lets hope Jeppesen or MS can fix it soon ;(.

I'll give this one a shot being the dollar conversion rate is really in my favor right now .
