Thank you for the additional information that is very helpful. I do have a couple of additional items I need to confirm:

1.) In the Configuration Manager->General Tab do you have D:\FSx set as the location for the Simulator Folder Location?

2.) Also can you please open the WxTheme folder where REX is installed and post the current.asm file.

1) Yes

2) There is no file in the directory you refer to that is .asm. I have as follows in the screenshot.

I haven't tried tbh. As normally (in the past) I loaded REXE, then FSx, selected the airfield and then once the weather had loaded I would set the weather to 'user defined weather' in FSx and then check that it was showing the correct data for my chosen departure.

I can try sitting on the tarmac/fly to see if it loads, but normally the radar would show me at my departure airfield and show the weather loading, helping to confirm I was ready to go. WIll go and test and update.


I can report that REXE is successfully loading the weather within a few seconds of placing myself on the tarmac and that it also seems to be injecting the weather during flight, which is good news.

The initial radar map does not display until after FSx has loaded and in order to see it I need to task-switch, which is not ideal. Do you have a solution to this issue/will it be patched?

That is great to hear that the weather engine is working now. In regards to the weather engine, we do not have an embedded / in-game gauge type program yet. Will their be a patch for this or not I cannot say.
