Hi Gerard,

possibly you are running a copy of CumulusX! at a wrong location on your computer.

I assume you have installed CumulusX! with its install.cmd command by right-clicking and selecting "Run as Admin" (or your localized equivalent) and you have extracted the two files License.bin and License.txt from the archive license.zip, that you have received by e-mail, and copied them to the folder <FSXROOT>\Modules\CumulusX!. <FSXROOT> stands for the installation folder of FSX, usually C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X. (x86) appears on Windows 64 operating systems only.

Please exit CumulusX! for the moment, then navigate to FSX' installation directory <FSXROOT> and proceed to subfolder \Modules\CumulusX!. There you will find CumulusX.exe. Double-click this. Then, after CumulusX! main windows has appeared (you may need to click its icon on the taskbar), select its menu item Tools and deselect AutoStart. Then select it again. A message box may appear that asks wether the FSX startup files EXE.XML and DLL.XML should be adjusted. Agree to it.

If you open now the menu item Help/About a windows opens that displays your license details. If so, all CumulusX! features are fully available. Next time you start FSX it will use automatically the correct copy of CumulusX!.

CumulusX! thermal clouds look a bit different from normal FSX clouds. To get familiar, it is best to follow the instructions in the manual section "Quick Start".

best regards,

Peter

Hello Gerard,

really sorry that it's so difficult. Anyway, let's try step by step.

First exit FSX and CumulusX!. Then start FSX again. Does CumulusX! appear in the taskbar? Yes/No.

Please tell me, then we'll take the next step.

Hi Gerard,

maybe too fast, a bit.

Now, when CumulusX! is running open its main window by clicking its icon on the taskbar. Then select its menu item Help/About. An info window will appear similar to the attached one.

Does it show in the indicated area, that CumulusX! is licensed to you? (Yes/No)

Ok, CumulusX! does not find the license files.

Now open the e-mail with your license information and open the archive License.zip.

It contains a few files, only License.bin and License.txt are relevant.

Extract these two files into the directory D:\...here your FSX installation directory...\Modules\CumulusX!

Then double-click CumulusX.exe in the same directory and check Help/About again.

First set up a decent wind perpendicular to the ridge. You have to go to the "Advanced Weather" dialogue. The simple dialogue sets only surface wind relative to the nearest weather station, which may be way below you.
