Can't inject weather into FSX - v0.9.4


Recommended Posts

I have used the public alpha for a bit with complete success with FSX in both standalone and distributed modes. When I upgraded to the first public version of 0.9.4 I noticed the following symptom:

Launch Swift Launcher - click GUI (same machine and same machine as FSX.)

Click weather page.

Click Activate.

Swift displays the updated weather data and the message "Swift weather is on"

4 seconds later Swift closes completely with no error and the weather in FSX is not updated.

 

It seems to fail when injecting the weather but I can't find any error message to explain it. Is this a known issue? I have updated to version 0.9.4.206 today which has the same fault. Seems to make no difference if I use a default aircraft (C172SP) or whether I connect to VATSIM or not.

 

Meanwhile, I can continue to use 0.9.3 which works fine for me, including weather.

Ah. OK I'd forgotten that. Yes 32bit version. The difference I noticed is that v0.9.3 gave me the correct barometric pressure in the sim according to the METAR. That was how I noticed the weather had not been set. For example, if I activate the weather before launching FSX (!), Swift says the weather is "on" and the button changes to Deactivate. If I then launch FSX, Swift stays open OK but I notice it hasn't set the pressure in the sim. So I click Deactivate and then Activate and 4 seconds later Swift closes.
