Weatherlink 5.8.2 on USB stick
« on: September 14, 2017, 02:18:09 AM »
Good Morning,

We have recently purchased a Kodlix Z8311  mini PC for running a couple of webcams and VWS from a Davies VP2

It is to replace an aging winXP machine - the power consumption of the mini  is minimal.

However, the install from a memory stick stops whilst trying  to install the .netframework  on to the mini -
 I copied the files from our original Weatherlink 5.8.2 CD which worked fine just now installing onto a Win10 laptop.

Any ideas where I could be going wrong, please?

David

Did you perform a Low Level Format? If you did, what Format did you use...............

You might want to try FAT or FAT32. That is what I would do.

Dalecoy, Do you mean I should try a different version of Weatherlink? And is it available online? David

I don't know if that would fix the problem.  I just noticed that info, and thought it might help.  Please let us know if it does.
