Heavy Weather Pro 2800 Unhandled Exception error
« on: June 29, 2013, 09:52:21 AM »
Getting an error "Unhandled Exception error: bad allocation"
This just started happening. Nothing has changed on the PC I use.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled. Was working OK A week ago.
Any ideas?
Thanks

sounds like a NULL pointer error or similar
what windows version?
you might have to delete the files/settings associated with the heavy weather pro software  and start over (i.e something might have goten corrupted)

I'm on Windows 7. I have the software installed on a machine that I don't use regularly. Its my media server and just sits there in another room. I've uninstalled and cleaned out the registry. reinstalled and still the same error.
Task manager say it's running. Was working fine for a long time. No suddenly this. Maybe it's time to rebuild the machine. What a headache.
Thanks

Is there any other free software that would work with the 2813?
Thanks

is this the La Crosse 2800 type station or a WH1081 clone?

Yes LaCross 2813. Got it at Costco 2 years ago.
I can get the Weather pro software to work if I go through the registry and delete all entries that are HeaveyWeater related and uninstall the program. But when I reboot or shut the program down I get the Exception error. So I was wondering if any other software worked with this station

WUHU will need to read in the history.dat file updated by the heavy weather software

You could try another version of HW Pro by  grabbing it off the LaCrosse website. I'm running V3.1 because of some issue with V5 I had (can't recall what exactly it was right now).
Another thing would be swapping memory Simms around their slots or at least just reseating them. Never know.

Found the problem. The History.dat file was 482 meg. Guess it's too big.
After starting a new History.dat the program starts just fine every time.
Thanks
