    Hi All Yes I use charts, but as this product has made their use less, one of the only reasons I look at them is to get the TA.. Derek

    Hi Volker Thanks for the new patch and the manual procedure, this works for the time being, for me its not the answer, I need to find out what settings to change in windows /firewall to get it to do it automatic. Derek

    Hi Volker Just for others my build number was 011208 after the re install 091208, both were verasion 8.4.1,so you must have updated the update, It now says Downloading weather in White text, on the map, after clicking on download weather, which it didn't do before, but alas I still then get the dreaded error message. I wait your further guidance I have sent you to file you requested Derek

    Hi I can also go to the website and see the metar text files for each hour,using the Ftp address, so why does't FSC? and as last poster has said how does it know which file to download. I am sure yours is working, but are you sure you haven't missed something out in the new 8.4.1release Derek
