W10 V1803 and ASN WX RADAR - INFO

This section of the Sim-A Forum is for support issues.
Only a few Clear Rules Here:
1. No Rants. Rants will be deleted and the poster contacted. All focus here is to assist in the spreading of information to better assist all Sim-A users. Most of the people helping are not paid employees.
2. Be Polite. We want all Sim-A users to experience the fantastic elements that make Sim-A what it is. Being able to communicate here will allow the info to be the focus.
3. Time. We do not have someone on the Forum 24/7 so please allow members to jump in to help when needed.
4. Most important. This is not a "Issue" forum. If you feel there is an issue then please email support@sim-Avionics.com and Mark will review that. This is a commercial product and erroneous reports do harm.

W10 V1803 and ASN WX RADAR - INFO

Post by Banananav »

Having "upgraded" to w10 Pro (from W7) on my 3 networked pcs I have found, as everyone else has, that PC NAME identifiers no longer work.

Solution = used fixed IP addresses, which we all do anyway, and Map the drives and folders.

However, mapped drive letters do not seem to work when setting the "radar.bin" path in FSUIPC5.ini.

SOLUTION = use the AVIONICS PC IP Address thus:

ASNwxRadarPath=\\\e\Sim-Avionics\WX\radar bin where "e" is the drive in which the Sim-Avionics folder sits.

Hope this helps and stops someone else spending a couple of hours trying to resolve the issue.
