Hi I just down loaded AS16 and am having trouble getting it to run. I've noticed the web companion can not find the page and says "Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at localhost:19285." Any ideas? Thanks.
Sorry No go. I even tried this on the outbound Rules. I use Norton 360 but the program is set as trusted. This may be part of a larger issue. AS16 keeps giving a message "ASConnect log does not appear to be enabled" That is followed by an error "AS16 can not control ambient weather parameters correctly" Make sure you have proper rights and ownershipof the program files (x86) folders and have trusted/excluded AS16 from your security software as well as the simulator's as_svr folder and include .dll modules" This I have done. Is there any file in particular I should be looking for?
Does the ambient error occur after the start of the flight (longer than 5 minutes)? This is some kind of blocking or overload occurring. We've seeing that with aggressive antivirus. Can you provide a log export by running AS16 (FSX closed) then press the Logs button, save and attach to your reply.
Please exclude the following folders and see if AS16 connects:
Your Drive Letter:\Program Files (x86)\HiFi\AS16
Your Drive Letter:\Microsoft Fight Simulator X directory
Your Drive Letter:\users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Flight Simulator\FSX
Your Drive Letter:\users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Flight Simulator\FSX
You may have to temporarily uninstall Norton and try running AS16. Also check your Smart Firewall Advanced settings are not set to high.
Sorry, I tried this and it didn't work. I tried disabling Nortons360 firewall and auto protect but AS16 still crashes. I get the log error while FSX is loading and then get the fatal AS16 error about 30 seconds after FSX is fully loaded and the sky graphics are running. Question. While running AS16, what should the fsx weather settings be set for? I have noticed that when I set the FSX weather to real world settings, I get an error that "an error occurred while downloading real weather data. please make sure your internet connection and configuration and try again" It's strange that I can fly on VATSIM but realweather can not download.
Ok I was able to get it to work. It turns out the Log file was pointed to an old FSX file on my C drive instead of FSX steam file. When I pointed it to the proper file all was fixed. Thank you for your assistance.
