« on: December 11, 2009, 10:35:59 AM »
I am running Windows 7 ultimate and cannot get virtual vp to run?
When I had xp it ran fine, but not now. What i'm wondering do i actually have to have a serial card? or can i use my usb because i'm not having any luck.
I want to run Weatherlink,Virtual Weather Station and Weather Display off a usb connection connected to Vantage Pro 2

thanks

Can you email me or post here a screenshot of the communications settings window of the program you previously were using to connect to your Vantage Pro?

Hello.
I did manage to get it working by trial and error, however for some reason weather view 32 doesn't work. All other weather programs im running are just fine. Do you know why this program is not connecting?
thanks
