Please try the latest version (it will still be registered)
Just install to the same location
and see how that goes and report back.
The barometer offset is stored in the wdisplay.ini file, but any errors after a program start, like under view, program error log, may mean its not set...
unfortunately when i first supported the wmr918/68 stations. i used the wrong barometer rading, and a offset of around 61hpa is needed...
i could change it, but then everyone would not to reset their offsets, so i dont want to do that
