Aid  (windows10)
I haven't just installed WEEWX. When I run (weectl station create). causes the following message:

(weewx-venv) c:\virtual\weewx-venv\Scripts>weectl station create
Traceback (most recent call last):

To my knowledge WeeWX is only supported on Linux based systems.  You may wish to confirm that on the user support forum:  https://groups.google.com/g/weewx-user

https://docs.python.org/3/library/grp.html says not available on windows.

Only thing I can suggest is building in Docker or in a virtual machine running Linux.   It's been enough years that I have no idea if you could possibly install cygwin and run python in there, but either way it would be a hack at best.  The Docker or VM path is more unixy.
WeeWX sites:
  Davis VP2+DFARS to a pi4
  EcoWitt GW1000, WH32 outdoor T+H, multiple WH31 indoor T+H, WH51 soilMoisture (docker)
  Davis AirLink (inside)
  PurpleAir (outside)

I've read about Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) but I have ZERO experience with it.  That seems complex.  A more simple method might be a Raspberry Pi though they're not the best choice for reliability but it will give experience with a Linux based OS.
