Hi, I have WeatherHawk weather station and solar sensor. Why this option does not work for me? Thanks!

    I do not know which was harder, finding the right section for this post or naming this post, i am sure both at wrong mind.

    This is something that everyone who has their webcam image on the main screen of WD should do.


    We have seen time and time again (been there myself) where the the PC restarted due to some issue or another and because WD did not shut down properly it will not restart, typically if memory serves, it throws up a general exception, and this is normally because the webcam image has gotten itself corrupted because it did not save properly.

    I was just thinking this morning and nearly put in a suggestion to have WD do what i am about to explain, i decided not to suggest this because not everyone will have kept the webcamimage image or jpwebcam image the same name, so i canceled the post and this is what i did instead.

    Create a batch file that will delete the offending image at startup

    • Open notepad
    • Insert your path to your folder where you have your webcam image saved to and the name of your webcam image (add more lines like i have if needed)
      cd "Y:\wdisplay\webfiles\webcam\webcamimage"
      del "jpgwebcam.jpg"
      del "webcamimage.gif"
    • Click File then Save as, change the folder to the desktop (for now), change file type to "All files" then type the e of the file (anything you want) with .bat on the end, e.g delete webcam image.bat
    • Test it by first opening your folder where the file is kept that you want deleted, then find the batch file you have just created, double click it and then check that folder to make sure the image disappeared, be quick, if WD is running it will soon create it again.
    • If step 4 was successful, you now need to copy the file to the startup folder, never easy to find so let me help
      C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup 


    That will do it for windows users, not got a clue about mac, you're on your own with that one  :lol:
    The above may seem like a lot or a little difficult perhaps, its not, just follow the instructions, it can save hair pulling in the future

    WD Bug Reports / Re: Screenshot Graph Blacked Out
    « Last post by orion98665 on Today at 05:02:54 AM »
    When this happens look on your WD PC at the index.gif file which should be in your /webfiles subfolder. Is that image complete, or is it missing the graphs too? This will help us understand if the problem is WD's generation of the file, or if it's getting corrupted during the upload.

    Hi Niko, I did look in the WD web files subfolder and the image looks complete;but I'll take a look again when this problem reoccurs. One thing I might add, is not only is the graphs in the screenshot corrupt on my website, but also the screenshot image on my PC display. Also, the corrupt graphs can be random after correcting the problem. Sometimes it might be the windspeed section of the graph, or just the temp section, or both.

    All is working now because I've went thru my steps of correcting the problem. Now I'm just going to wait and see how long it takes for this problem to reoccur.

    Thanks

    Bob

    what is the exact steps you are doing to rectify the problem?

    1) Select control panel in WD
    2) Select Internet File Creation & Uploads
    3) Select Screen Image File
    4) Select create this now

    After step 4 I notice the thumbnail setup image will then correct itself and display the graphs in the screenshot thumbnail correctly.

    5)Select upload this file now
    6)Select save

    WxSim / Re: Incorporating eclipses
    « Last post by Tom Ehrensperger on Today at 02:59:31 AM »
    I think I now have WXSIM remembering all of the eclipse data, even whehn you close it.  Here's the new version (just the main .exe), which is 2017 Build 1.4:

    www.wxsim.com/wxsim.exe

    Let me know if that works!
