FSCommander and SID/STAR

When running FSCommander and using the SID/STAR for creating a flight plan in FSX, I have run into a recurring problem at various airports. When creating a flight plan and looking at the FSCommander map, airport KTPA shows several runways namely 18R, 18L, 36R & 36L. When you select the SID/STARS TRAN in FSCommander for the departure it displays 01L, 01R, 19L & 19R. I am using AIRAC 1301. I have found this same condition at other airports as well and I wonder if I have something set wrong or do I have to update something somewhere. I sometimes get the same condition when selecting the STAR approach, that is the runways don't coincide with the STAR listing. Thanks for any help

Well it seems after much searching all afternoon it appears that the problem in FSCommander cannot be corrected. I have looked at other flight planners that might use SID/STAR routing but it appears there are almost none for FSX. FSCommander is a well written program but the conflict between the SID and STAR departures and approaches on some of the major airports do not match the actual runway numbers. I am not sure where FSCommander is reading the AIRAC SID/STAR charts from as the error is in the reading of the SID/STAR Departures and Arrivals and not on the map or the charts I have downloaded for KTPA.

I found this
You can try the demo but it's expensive to buy, about $40 I think.
