Message 'Could not open the Active Sky Weather File'
« on: April 28, 2014, 12:36:59 PM »
Hi there,

Hoping someone can advise - I've been using TopCat and Active Sky together for years now with no problems, but today I've just started preparing for a flight, and TopCat is suddenly saying it can't open the weather snapshot file created by Active Sky. This link was working fine just a few days ago, although Active Sky has installed an update to itself since then - I wonder if this may be to blame? I'm using Active Sky Next, and Top Cat is updated to version 2.73.

I've checked in the weather config and confirmed it's pointing at the right place for the snapshot file. I've tried running TopCat as administrator just in case there was a permissions issue. Unfortunately none of these things has worked.

Oddly enough PFPX seems to have no problem getting weather from ASN, so I'm guessing this must be a TopCat issue?

If someone can suggest a solution or advise I'd be really grateful,

Many thanks,

Please check Wx file path into Wx settings of TOPCAT.

Let me know
