Could you possibly explain what's going on. I access data from two weather stations. WM2 and Vantage pro2 wireless.
Putting it simply they both now work through the serial communication port 1 on the PC / software, via an adapter. This means that the software is running on the new Win7
On XP I had one stream of data coming through comm. Port 2, (via a serial to USB connection) there are 6 or 7 on my PC It now seems that on WIN7 none of the USB ports will allow any communication between the weather stations.
Two sets of software and weather stations are;-
Davis Weather Monitor2 via Weatherlink version 4.0
Davis Vantage pro2 via Weatherlink version 5.5.1
I can get around it by swapping the jack plug around each time, but this is not ideal, when I have other USB ports I can use.
The question:- is it a Win7 problem, A PC configuration or weather station issue?
I'm waiting for a 2nd reply from my supplier – he seems to think it's a case of permissions don't know what he means by this.
Have you any clues?
