Has anyone got problems download real worl weather tonight? Everytime I attempt to download it either stays at 0% and FS freezes or it got to 1% then froze.

Before you ask, my internet connection is working fine.

It's never done this before and has always worked fine.

Any ideas? ❓

Did you download something or maybe your antivirus being upadated or some other programs?If you have firewall check it...maybe FS is blocked by mistake Dont Know

Guest

Well I got no firewall, anti virus does not sort it even when I turn that off.

Well that will surely solve everything. Doh!

Uninstalling FS and reinstalling it for what almost certainly is a temporary DNS problem or router failure on the internet, sounds like a lovely way to kill time. Wacko

That's like buying a new TV when a thunderstorm temporarily knocks the electricity out, making the TV go dark.

Since I don't use "Real Weather" I don't know what "Jepp" is but see if this link is of any help.

Jepp' as in Jeppesen! That Microsoft link doesn't do diddly... I cleared my temporary internet files; still no luck.

I'm having the same problem as well.. Must be an issue with the MS weather server. I've been going crazy all day trying to get it to work.

A few people I know all on different ISP's have been having the same issue since Friday.

It is not ISP related and there is a high possibility that this Jesp thingie me jiggie is having some problems.

Here you are TTT - have a nice little word to go with "diddly".

I have had the same problem today, but it does seam a little extreme to uninstall FS or Windows when the problem may not have anything to do with your own PC.

Guest

Oh man I am also having the same problem and it has also been since friday afternoon-ish. It worked fine earlier that day but havent been able to get it working since. Sometimes it goes to 8% and freezes, sometimes 1% I also got a check internet connection and configuration message. This is so frustrating since I just ordered ultimate traffic and World Airports 2!! GRRR!!
This has never happened before...I need my real weather!!!!! PLZ JEPP FIX IT SOON!!!!

I have had a look at the Jepp site and nothing is said about the server being down
But you can get free weather info for your area and set the fs weather to near as dam it ➡

update

Jeppesen does not actually provide weather data directly to Flight Simulator 2004 users. Microsoft connects to our weather
server and converts the data for use in FS2004 then makes the converted data available on one of their servers to FS2004 users.

Guest

I just finished a chat with Microsoft and they said that the Real-World weather servers are down for maintenance and that we should be able to download updates in 24-48 hours.
I also tried to ask about FS2006 but all they said is that they are working on it.

I've had this same problem both last night and tonight (10PM USA Eastern time). I have no idea what caused it and suspected that I had accidentally deleted some FS9 subroutine when I knocked some programs off my startup list. Now I think *I* am not to blame!
If others are having the same problem then let's stay with this until someone has an answer.

ANYONE????

This is the third time FlyAway has saved the day.

Why ? what did we do 😳

Finally the weather server is back online. Microsoft should post something the next time they decide to take the server down for maintenance, and their troubleshooting site blows if you can see this site the weather server is working, not! http://fs2k.zone.com I was able to access this website since friday. Oh well since the I bought this game I have had no real major issues. hopefully not everyone, spent to much time on this issue. Fs 2006 is postpone for a good reason, it will give us time to save some cash, to build faster machines. Thanks to the person that called Microsoft, so stopped troubleshooting.
