FS9 weather not updating winds after takeoff?

Hi all,

I have been having issues with winds updating straight after takeoff.

I can tell that the weather is updating as cloud formations are changing but with winds - FSrealWX doesn't seem to update these. In cruise I can have winds of 207 @ 6 knots which is unrealistic.

I normally ...

1) Load FS9
2) Load my aircraft at my departure airport (inc. gate)
3) Load my flight plan
4) Go to desktop and load FSrealWX ... let it auto connect etc
5) Click on Set [icao] WX as this seems to be the only way to get the weather loaded correctly currently
6) Let FSrealWX run in the background

Am I doing something wrong?

My settings are as follows:

Weather Tab (read left to right top, then left to right bottom):

Server location = DE / NOAA
Weather Update interval in min = TICKED / 15
No weather updates for height <= TICKED / 3000ft
Xplane settings = left as default (dist. 20nm, time 10 min)

Set WX from Position in NM = 200nm
Weather modes = Normal
Create new weather station = left as default (ticked)

Slight gusty surface winds = Unticked
Turbulence in/below cumulus clouds = TICKED

Generate Cirrus = TICKED
Mixed clouds = Unticked
Icing in Clouds = TICKED
Add stratus in cloud layer if vis < 5000m = Unticked
max. cloud layers = 8
Generating clouds if CAVOK / SKC : 1/8
min visibility (vfr): 0nm
visibility limit = 200km
Visibility when metar reported 9999 or 10sm = 50km

You do not use Set ICAO WX. This option is for reserve only. there, if the weather at the airport is not right, then the weather for the airport is set directly.
"Connect" and "Download WX" should be enough.

If you find an error, then please give me exactly about your system. Which sim (FSX / P3D / Xplane). Which connection (FSUIPC / SimConnect / FSrealWX-Bridge). Which OS.
