Why will it work fine for hours then stop?

18:51:43:798 Warning      - VpConsole: No response after several retries for Get Live Sensor Data
18:51:45:002 Warning      - VpConsole: No response after several retries for Wake Up Console
18:51:47:061 Warning      - VpConsole: No response after several retries for Get Live Sensor Data
18:51:48:269 Warning      - VpConsole: No response after several retries for Wake Up Console
18:51:49:689 Warning      - VpConsole: Far too long since last loop = 9.890, last command= Initiate Barometer Refresh

How hard is it to find a new console with below 3.0 firmware? What year would it be? Maybe i should just make a macro to open and close Virtual VP every 10 hours lol

tmabell:
If I'm not mistaken you can load older firmware but if your console is that new I can only hazard a guess.

If you haven't gotten the message yet regarding Virtual VP "not being compatible" with any of the newer Davis consoles and data loggers then, you are simply wasting your time. As has been stated numerous times, the newer versions of the data logger uses a Loop 2 command. VVP was never designed to look for that sequence of events and thus, simply can't interpret correctly the current version of the firmware being used. The entire set of software written many years ago by SoftWx included StartWatch, Virtual VP, VP Live and several other useful tools (at the time they were developed). None of those tools have been updated or maintained for many years now and thus, a waste of your time and those who have been attempting to help you to get them to run. Simply put, it "ain't gonna happen" unless somehow miraculously the original developer picks-up where he left off and updates his routines.

Now, I will say this though. I have used all of the SoftWx software and it was (is) great. We all certainly miss the ability to run multiple weather software packages via the VVP product. The StartWatch product is still a viable piece of software and I use it myself to keep everything humming along. I also use VVP but I have an old version data logger that still runs VVP just fine and I have no plans to ever upgrade the firmware to V3 or any later versions.

It's been working for me for 5 days straight now so it's not a waste of time and if it's "not compatible" how do you explain all the data i have from WD, Weather link and cumulus for last 5 days.
