Recent Windows 10 Update
« on: March 13, 2024, 08:55:16 AM »
Since a recent Windows 10 update my WeatherLink 6.0.5 has stopped working. Iíve tried all the usual stuff but to no avail. Has anyone else had a problem?

I haven't heard of anyone else having problems with recent updates, so difficult to comment helpfully. In what way is WL not working? Does the program start? If it does start then does it have problems getting data from a logger? etc

Sorry, but I don't usually have time to help with individual issues by email unless you are a Prodata customer. Please post your issue in the relevant forum section here & I will comment there if I have anything useful to add.

The program starts with just the basic blank screen and the anemometer curser and hangs. Itís happening on two machines, one running Windows 10 and the other running Windows 11. Everything has worked perfectly for the last six years on this setup but last night an update scuppered it. Iíve spent this morning reinstalling, restarting etc. etc. but with no result. The Windows 10 m/c is the main user but I gave it a try on W11 just to see if it worked. It didnít. Iíve been using WeatherLink for many years and this is the first problem that Iíve experienced.

Are you using serial or USB connection to the logger?  If USB, maybe there is a driver update.  Check the driver settings for proper ports in the Windows Device Manager to see if the settings for the port are as expected by WeatherLink.

Thanks for the replies but itís become more complicate. For many years Iíve been running W/L in a WeatherLink folder in DropBox. This has worked very well and, of course, safeguards the data. However, if I install W/L on the C: drive of the computer it works. Why it no longer runs in DropBox is currently a mystery but I shanít be looking into that until tomorrow.

Anyway, thanks again for your replies and Iíll be closing this topic.

P.S.
It was a corrupt file in the station folder.

Thanks again.
