Clientraw.txt not being updated
« on: October 01, 2017, 05:50:52 PM »
WD suddenly stopped updating the clientraw.txt file earlier today, see webfiles.PNG. The last version of the file (at 1623) is still being uploaded by realtimeFTP, as are updated versions of the other clientrawtemp, extra, hour & daily webfiles. See debuginfo.PNG. Nothing in event log. I restarted WD, but still no update.

Started updating again at 1930 with no input from me. . . Screenshot shows my client screen, which takes data direct from clientraw.txt in C:\wdisplay\webfiles on the unattended weather computer.

you can see that WD was not getting any new data from your USB port .that was the problem.

WD on the weather computer worked perfectly to get USB data, display it, log it and and graph it throughout - as you can see from this screenshot. The only thing it didn't do was update clientraw.txt for 3 hours. . .

The earlier post showed my client display, which takes its data direct from clientraw.txt in wdisplay\webfiles on the weather computer.

Is webfiles.PNG from the source PC or the client PC?

How is the client PC connected to the source PC?

webfiles.PNG is from the source PC, which behaved well in every respect except updating clientraw.txt. So client PC, Weather Display Live and Weather34 were not updating - they all showed 1623 data for the next 3 hours. There was no break in WUnderground data, however.

Unattended source PC runs Win 10 Home, so can't network "properly", but it connects to client PC (Win 10 Pro) with Microsoft Homegroup - effectively it shows as a mapped network drive - and client PC reads clientraw.txt directly. It's been working well for some time. . .

Only recent change has been installation of a test weatherdisplay.exe to help with the real WD flat-lining problem. This time WD did not flat-line.

No worries! I am seriously impressed by the number of plates you can keep spinning. . .

And this problem is hardly urgent, I didn't lose any data.

Here we go again. . .

Went back to original WeatherDisplay.exe and restarted - no change for the better, still not updating.

Beginning to wonder if I should look at this the other way round. . . maybe the client PC locks the clientraw.txt file "in use" and prevents the weather PC from overwriting it. Perhaps I'll try restarting client WD next time, instead of the "server" WD.

Delete the file and see if that allows a new one to be written.

Good idea. . . but might tell me it can't delete it if it's "open" or "in use". (Can a .txt file be "in use"?) I'll try.

Switched client PC to read clientraw.txt from the server today (long way round for a short cut!) only to get a string of (server-based) FTP problems. So it goes. . .

you could try a batch file and schedule it to copy the clientraw to a different folder and get the client PC to read that instead
