Online Activation Problems
by Jon Williams - Thursday, 20 February 2014, 5:10 PM

Version 2.0 of the VFR RT Communications CD-ROM, sold between Jan 2006 and April 2007 and version 1.2 of the ATPL Meteorology CD-ROM, sold between July 2006 and May 2007, used an online software activation system, provided by a third party. The server that performs the activations has now been discontinued.

The following patches will remove the online activation and allow the software to run:


Before you try to apply the patch, make sure that the VFR RT Communications or Meteorology software and the activation process are not running.


  1. Install your VFR RT Communications or Meteorology software.
  2. Download and unzip the patch, then run VFR_patch.exe or MET_patch.exe. This will patch the file software and remove the software activation.
