Hi folks... first off, I'm new hear as a poster, but long time lurker. Secondly, I've searched this forum quite extensively, but not found quite the answer to my current problem.
Like quite a few others, I've been running both WeatherLink and Virtual Weather Station (VWS does my WUnderground updates) for quite a few years. I typically get things working with WeatherLink and then use VWS for just about everything else. This has been running on an older Windows XP based desktop. I have a Vantage Pro 2 system and a Weather Envoy with USB data logger (connecting to a USB port on my computer).
I acquired a new Windows 7 based computer (an HP Touchscreen) a few weeks ago and decided it is time to move my weather station software to it.
All data was backed up, WeatherLink (original disk) installed, then upgraded to 5.9.3 (the latest). And I cannot get WL to connect AT ALL. I thought I'd check here to see if anyone has any ideas -- before I submit all of this to Davis. I've also supplied a number of screenshots attachments that will maybe illustrate what I am seeing
Note: when I plug / unplug the USB cable from the data logger, the Ports entry: "Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridge (COM3)" appears and disappears. The Silicon Labs driver version is 188.8.131.52 (01/10/2011).
Details about my computer are in the 3rd attachment.
Does anyone see anything specific in what I have provided to get past this.
WeatherLink is installed in C:\Weatherlink as has been recommended.
Many thanks for taking a look.
