Hi Julio.

The CS WXR does work in P3D. I don't think you can install it directly into P3D, but if you have FSX and P3D installed, here is what you can do:
1. Copy Captain_Sim.r001.P04.CAB and WXR.dll files from FSX\Gauges to P3D\Gauges.
2. Copy the WXR folder in FSX\Captain_Sim\ to P3D\Captain_Sim\.
That completes the copying. BUT if the WXR Editor doesn't work, you can add the entries into the panel.cfg manually. Like so:

Under [Window Titles], add WindowXX=CS Weather Radar, where XX is the next consecutive numbered gauge. I.e. If the last entry is Window05=Mini Panel, the weather radar entry would be Window06=CS Weather Radar.

At the end of the panel.cfg, you would add the corresponding window:

[Window06]
size_mm=525,386
window_size=0.44
position=2
background_color=1,1,1
visible=0
ident=11223
zorder=1
gauge00=WXR!wr_display, 81,32,364,279
gauge01=Captain_Sim.r001.P04!P04_radar, 0,0,525,386


WindowXX= and [WindowXX] MUST be the same or you won't see the gauge!


I placed a box around the P3D Academic License watermark!

Edited:
The default FSX C172, along with several other default FSX aircraft, was copied over to P3D, that's why it's seen in the pic! Cheesy

I can help you add a 2D CS WXR, but not a 3D (VC) CS WXR.

For the FSX\SimObjects\Airplanes\Milviz Boeing 737-200\panel.s77\panel.cfg:

Add Window03=CS Weather Radar to the [Window Titles], like this:

[Window Titles]
Window00=Main Panel
Window01=GPS
Window02=Radio Stack
Window03=CS Weather Radar


Then add this:

[Window03]
size_mm=525,386
window_size=0.44
position=2
background_color=1,1,1
visible=0
ident=11223
zorder=1

gauge00=WXR!wr_display, 81,32,364,279
gauge01=Captain_Sim.r001.P04!P04_radar, 0,0,525,386


right at the bottom of the panel.cfg.

For the FSX\SimObjects\Airplanes\Milviz Boeing 737-200\panel.s177\panel.cfg:

Add Window04=CS Weather Radar to the [Window Titles], like this:

[Window Titles]
Window00=Main Panel
Window01=FMS
Window02=GPS
Window03=Radio Stack
Window04=CS Weather Radar


Then add this:

[Window04]
size_mm=525,386
window_size=0.44
position=2
background_color=1,1,1
visible=0
ident=11223
zorder=1

gauge00=WXR!wr_display, 81,32,364,279
gauge01=Captain_Sim.r001.P04!P04_radar, 0,0,525,386


right at the bottom of the panel.cfg.

I tried adding a VC WXR, but using FS Panel Studio, none of the VC gauges show up, so this makes it hard to tell what coordinates to place it in the VC (or if it's possible at all to place it in the VC).
