one thing I do see in your settings is that you are using a web cam image
the problem could be with a corrupted image file

When you note make a wd2.txt file... I assume this is a blank file in the wdisplay (or new folder) root?

Just a blank file in the WD directory...assuming that WD still has the capability. 

The way it worked is when WD detects the file it starts up a second version, using absolutely nothing from your original install...to include registry settings.  The fact that yours failed to run means either this functionality has been removed from WD, or, WD did not detect the file.


I just searched old posts and now I see references to 2wd.txt as the file name...the part i quoted earlier was directly from Brian's post so I figured it would be correct.

I think it could be, maybe some corruption on PC files (not related to WD), or maybe some HW failure on weather station hardware. Can you test the weather station with other software? Can you pass some corruption test to the PC? Which operating system runs?

its most likely was due to a corrupted web cam image file, which cause a run away in memory (race condition)

Any way to remove that possible corrupted webcam file and restore?
