WD Meteotemplate API question
« on: February 11, 2018, 08:46:22 PM »
so, i just downloaded WD so i will assume its thenewest version.  i have gone in and setup the password, url, update intervals and turned it on.  i have even hit the 'test/update' button, but it doesnt seem to do anything.  it also seems that it is not updating my site.  jachym recommended that i raise the question here.

any help is appreciated.

i am also noticing, i dont think im getting data from my acurite.  ugh.  so will this run the acurite exe that is inside the wd folder?  i was actually using the vis reader solo and am wanting to go back to wd.  i did change the c:\vis folder name to not cause conflicts...thought i read tat somewhere.

ok. station is getting data now.  guess i didn't restart WD yesterday when i made changes.  it is supposed to open the included version of vis with wd, right?

still have the original issue though.
