    I have a problem!!!...a big problem!
    I'm creating a FS2004 tool, but I don't know how read and set weather for a point or for a station from FS2004 or from files!!!
    How does it work?
    What can I do?
    The SDK is not good to do this!
    I'm using Visual Basic .NET!!!But I know C and C++ too!

    Example:
    1)I want know what wind, temp and pressure are on LIRF to FL300!!!
    2)I want know what wind, temp and pressure are on MEDAL fix to FL280!!!

    and so on!

    Is it possible?Is there a manual to study, a book, an article?

    HELP ME PLEASEEEEE!!!!!
    I could give my program for free to you and write this as a collaboration!

    I have not looked at this in a long time. It is possible to get some weather information for FS2004 using FSUIPC. Are you using FSUIPC to collect information from FS? If not then you will need to use it. If you are then take a look at the SDK that comes with it. Also you may want to look at Pete Dowson's Forum on http://forums.simflight.com. Also Pete is here sometimes and may be able to help

    Problems

    I studied the SDK for weather but it seems very hard!!!
    Do you have a code (C,C++ or VB) that uses NewWeather.h?
    This is my first experience with FS connection by FSUIPC!An example could be perfect!
    Thank you!

    No I don't. I would suggest asking on the forum I listed above.
