This may seem like a dumb question but you do start xwif b4 you log into westwood online right? If it's working, you should see all your buddies on the white screen along with your name. I've also noticed every change you make to xwif settins your going to have to log back out and log back into Westwood in order for the changes to take effect.
Hope this helps
