CLOSED "The weather theme could not be loaded."

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I've got my FSX settings arranged as instructed in the REX manual Recommended FSX Settings (pages 9 - 11 of the manual).  Nevertheless, when I run REX and then click "Fly Now", I pick my airplane and start a free flight, every few minutes, the green REX message bar appears at the top of the screen displaying the message "[REX] - Assembling real-time weather data..."  After a moment, the screen goes black, and FSX displays an error message stating "The weather theme could not be loaded.  Please check that this file exists and try again."  When I click OK, I'm returned to the simulator where I left off, and the green REX message bar appears at the top of the screen again, this time saying "[REX] - Real-Time Weather Loaded Successfully..."

 

I'm pretty confused at this point, so if you could help me rectify this situation, I'd appreciate it greatly!  Thank you.

You need to give permissions through your AVG, both for REX AND FSX.

 

You can confirm this by setting the WEATHER mode to STANDARD within REX and try again. If this works, then it's a firewall or antivirus issue, and must follow my above advice.

I set the Weather mode to Standard within REX and then pressed the Fly button.  The error message only popped up once at the beginning of each new flight, but that was it.  I'll try and figure out how to allow REX and FSX through the AVG firewall.  Thank you.

I went into AVG.  FSX already had a permission, but REX didn't, so I added it, and it fixed the problem.  One last question: everytime I click Fly in REX and FSX starts up, I always have to set the weather theme to REX.  Is there a way to set FSX so that REX is the weather theme by default, without me having to select it everytime FSX starts?  Thank you for your help timetest999!  I appreciate your taking the time to help me out with this!

No need to EVER enter the WEATHER menu in FSX once REX is running. Please read the User Manual, this gives insight you obviously didn't know ;)
