I use VSPE...a virtual com port software...

VSPE is reading com1 and create a virtual port

WD is connected to com port 2
Other software on com3 is reading from com port 2

OK,
Just to make sure I understand what is going on, When WD is connected to com port 2 and VWS is connected to com 3, everything works correctly. But when you switch VWS for Add-InWx you start losing graph data.
Is this correct?

Ok, thanks for confirming that.
I don't think rebooting your system will help.

What I think might be going on relates to how Add-InWx retrieves station data.

As I'm typing this I just had an "doh" moment.

Here's what I believe is going on and how to fix it.
VSPE doesn't marshall traffic between programs, so if one program requests station data then the other requests station data while the console is responding to the first request, something has to happen. I would think that one request would not get filled and thus the one program doesn't see valid station data.

Here's how you fix it,
Switch VSPE for VirtualVP, VirtualVP is designed to handle multiple programs requesting data from the station at the same time. That should fix the problem.

EDIT:
I'm glad that they are both running now, But I still think you should use VirtualVP instead of VSPE. Come to think of it, this might also solve the problem you had earlier with WeatherLink.

That's a Bummer...
I suppose it isn't possible to put it into a Demo mode then.

Or you might want to take a look at this page.

Hey Guys,

News Update,
I've finally put up a dev blog. Check it out here.
I was holding off publishing the blog site until I had something on it. After all, there is no sense in putting up a website that has no content. :grin:

I've also got a status update for Add-InWx, you can find it on the new dev Blog.

It's hard to believe that it's been almost a month since something was posted here. Time goes by so quickly.

Anyway, I Just added a new Blog post to the Dev Blog. You can find it here.

Well... Here's another update. This time its a Software Update.

Version 1.0.2.3 Beta is now available!
You can find the Download link on the website - AddinWx.net

Change Log:
 - Settings are now saved when the Options Window is closed instead of when the program is closed.
 - Stations are now setup to Re-connect and use the new settings when the Options Window is closed.
 - Fixed a bug that was causing the Station settings to be loaded after the Stations were told to open a connection.
 - Changed how the station's Update method is called. Instead of keeping a thread in a constant Loop, its now setup to create a new thread at a specified interval. This will help prevent threads remaining open when the program has been closed.
 - Window State (Windowed, Fullscreen, Maximized) is no longer remembered when Add-InWx is closed. Window location however is and you can still set the Window Startup mode in the Options.


This is a Hold-Over update to fix a few things while I'm getting ready to start a Beta for the new Windows 10 based version, which should be ready within the next couple of months. When its ready I'll announce it here and on the Dev Blog along with more details.

For those that are watching this thread,
I am not dead nor have I abandoned the project. In fact, I have just released a new version of AddInWx, this one is for Windows 10.

Seeing as it is a completely new rewrite, I decided to start a new forum thread for it. That thread is located here: http://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=28176.0
I've also posted the announcement on the dev blog, which is located here: http://www.blog.addinwx.net

And one more thing...


MERRY CHRISTMAS!
