FSX ADE Crosswind runways

Thanks for that info, however I'm in the "approachlegCF" and I am not sure what to change the Fix indent to.
Is it in the navade listing under indent or something else?
 
"Fix Ident" where it shows Runway 07 (see pic) change this to RW08 or whatever runway number you need it to change to,
As long as it matches the one you changed the ILS to.............
once you change it go back to "List/Approaches" and open ILS for runway 08 and the red line you did have should have turned back to white

Made changes in the "Approach Mode" and all red lines are gone. But my crosswind activity is still only going to runway 26 for incoming/outgoing flights
 
I have made all the changes I needed to in "Approach Mode", and the second CF down "approachlegCF". All red lines are gone.
as for my crosswind runways I still only have runway 26 active, at this point do I reinstall the crosswind runways or am I doing something else wrong.
 
Have you playing with the wind,for example wind from the EAST or SOUTH-EAST16 knots?
And set the wind before you start,if you change the wind in the game it take some time before everything is set.

Yes I have played with the wind, and now it's using r/w 8. I'm about at wits end with this. Is there some option in ADE that I need to turn on?
 
taking a break from my own problem airport,
you need to re align the runways with the main lowest number runway at the bottom and the highest main number at the top. inbetween are the xwind runways from lowest heading at the bottom to highest at the top. go to list runways and move each up or down. i see you used 7.9, 7.8 is better as i had problems with 7.9, the tutorial even says you can use 7.6. also it shouldnt matter what number u give the xwind but what i usually do is round the heading to the next number, if i end up with 2 runways with the same number i make one of em left the other right. i had an issue once that took me days to figure out.

As tomasz says realign the runways. I checked your .ad4 and after the realignment as per tomaz picture all runways worked.
 
To add:
once you reorganize the runways you need to save immediately,
if you do something else the runways will revert back to how they were before
 
This post was a big help and finally assisted in getting a crosswind runway open at CYUL. But I have a question. In ADE, my runways are not listed as 06/24 but 24/06. Does that matter? So I have 10/28 for the crosswind with the lower value first, but the two larger parallel runways 06L/24R and 06R and 24L are listed in ADE as 24/06. So when I start adding runways, which runway should I start with and end with. Love ADE!

The probable reason for the switched numbers can be seen by opening the properties box for the runway and check the Primary number. It's probably set at 24. If you change that to 6 then the numbers will flip. But sometimes the crosswind runways work better if they are flipped, so try it both ways.
 
Did you start with the stock airport (ad4 file) or is this an addon airport
as the stock FSX airport both runways are listed as 6/24's

Thanks Guys, it's FlyTampa's CYUL ad4 file that I first started working with. I'll try switching the primary number. At this point, I worked off 24 and kept subtracting 7 degrees for each runway until I reached Runway 10. It worked, in terms of opening runway 10/28 but I think I was still seeing 6L/6R open when strong winds were set out of the west - in an effort to check Rwy 28. Let me toy around with tom Gibson's suggestion.

Just home from work, tried it out. I can switch the primary runways from 24 to 6, but the heading still shows 222 - attached to 24L/24R. If I try and change the actual runway headings in the runway properties, the actual runways go WAY out of alignment.

So originally I started with runway 24 and started subtracting 7 degrees for each new runway until I reached runway 10 - 87 degrees. That's 222, 220, 213, 206, 199, 192, 185, 178, 171, 164, 157, 150, 143, 136, 129, 122, 115, 108, 101, 94, 87.

I'm not quite sure why I didn't subtract 7 from 222, but that's what I did and I now have runway 10/28 running. But it seems to me like I've not done it properly or as efficiently as I should have.

Tonight I tried changes, still basing them on the 24L/R runway as a starting point and working around the compass to Rwy 10. I get this error when I tried to compile

Sorry for the repeated posts. Figured out the error, compiled tonight and I have Rwy 28 active. Using 10/28 as the top entry and 24/06 as the bottom entries with my self created runways in between. It appears to work!

Hi,

BTW, the runway headings have to be true, not magnetic. Perhaps that's the reason for the misalignment? If you would have subtracted 180 degrees from the displayed heading they should not have been misaligned.
 
Hi people, im get this error when trying crosswind
