An FSMetar 1.5.2 fix has been released to solve an IVAO download problem.
FSMetar is a much loved piece of free software that has gotten a lot of acclaim from flight simulator enthusiasts and others.
FSMetar is very popular because it supports one of the latest versions of Microsoft Flight Simulator, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004.
The problem that this update fixed was that the software could no longer download data directly from the servers of the International Virtual Aviation Organisation, or IVAO for short.
The update works by providing a new INI file with the software, which is a file that Windows uses to store user settings. The file should replace the one that you already have, and it changes the domain that the software looks for the IVAO on.
When the IVAO changed their website domain, all flight simulator software that interfaced with it had to be updated so that it would be aware of the new change, and without the update none can connect. Therefore, if you like to use any IVAO services while using FSMetar, this update is crucial.
