I have installed it there as stated in the instructions, quite a few time actually and downloaded the plugin 3 times. Still no show on the interface. When I unzip, its a folder called XPrealWXv3, and inside another folder called "64" with .dll files etc. Thats it. Other than that im not sure what I can be possibly doing wrong. I will install again tonight as my final attempt. I will take screenies and upload as well to show the location of the installed files.

Hi.  I'm a long time user and never had any problems, years ago, with setting up the older version of FSrealWX v1 to X-Plane 11.4+.   No that I'm trying to connect versions FSrealWXv3 and XPrealWXv3 plugin to X-Plane version 11.55, I've only gotten a connection 1 in about 30 attempts, but the changes I made weren't saved, so I never was able to get it to connect again.  This is very frustrating.
Things I've double checked... 
Latest version of plugin and software, check.  Exempt from firewall, check. Run as admin, check. I've tried both IP addresses in selected in my system, check. I've tried several different ports used by things like FSHOST, which I never had problems using in FSHost (I no longer use FSHost), No luck there, either.
I'm running out of ideas.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions.  I've seen requests for a "log file" here, but I've looked for "log.txt" in every folder and can't find it.  Please be more specific.
Thanks for your help.

Hi.
Do you use two computers, one for XPlane and one for FSrealWX. Or one computer in the same network?
If you only use one computer, then you can also use the IP 127.0.0.1.
Please send me two screenshots of the settings in FSrealWX (interface) and XPrealWX.

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.

Hi, Sillo,

Thank for your prompt reply.

I asked my repair guy for suggestions about why port 1234 wouldn't work and he told me that port 1234 was a Windows system port that wasn't going to allow me to use for anything. He suggested adding a digit, like 23456.  So we did and that one worked. We put in 23456 for the port entries in "xprealwx.ini" and the port window in Settings/Interface tab for FSRealWXv3 Pro, it worked!

"[interface]
autostartserver=false
port=23456
udpport=23456
udpserverinterval=500
ip=127.0.0.1

[flight]
transalt=5000

[windows]
infopoint=@Point(923 1523)"

To answer your question, Sillo... No, I'm not using two computers.  It's just the one, but being used by a person that knows absolutely nothing about programming or networking devices, computers or computer languages.

If I might offer a suggestion, could you please take out that default entry of "Port=1234" for the above .ini file and replace it with a suggestion of several ports that your new user might try that would be valid options as a port that is possible for a user addon to use?  That would be very helpful for folks like myself.

Season's greetings to you and yours.  Thank you for a wonderful product!  I've been using some version of this since I was still using FS2004. It's GREAT!

Thank you.
The two ports should be different. One is a TCP port and the other is UDP.

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.
