Version of VWS
« on: November 24, 2018, 02:46:57 PM »
What is the latest version of VWS?  According to my site -- I'm running version 15 p03. 
I recently moved to a new host and all seemed to go well -- until today when I noticed that my station is not reading the wind direction/speed/or gusts.  Frankly, I don't know if this is a new problem or not.  All other parameters seem fine.
thanks,

That is the latest version.  It hasn't been updated in a few years, half the features no longer work and they are still actively selling it for $99.95 online.  #-o

Thanks for the reply and confirmation. 
I really like the look of your web site -- what weather software are you using? 
I'm not good at programming -- even tried an entirely different approach to building my page -- it didn't work for me so I stayed with VWS.
I'm okay at hacking HTML code and inserting weather maps (which I value the most, personally), but beyond that, I'm a mess.

VWS is old and outdated....1990s looking. Version 15.xx is old and behind in times to Weather Display.

I did learn from Ed at Ambient -- that I am running the latest version and that VWS is no longer being supported. 
I'm sorta a "set it and forget it" kinda guy so it's not surprising that I had no idea about the lack of support.
My desktop weather console does not show any wind parameters -- but it is showing temp -- and "low battery transmitter".
I'm gonna replace the battery, of course, but not sure if that will fix the wind readings.

My site is generated by VWS with additional scripting.  I started with the website builder template and just kept adding on.  When the features in VWS started to quit working I improvised.  It's been a 13-year work in progress.  :grin:

To bad I don't have better programming skills.
I have contacted Davis about my anemometer issue.  I think my problem is hardware related and probably not software -- since all the other parameters are reporting.
