Yes. Both are using build 74.
The WD build is automtically picked up a the bottom (after the Units Table).

The following link shows the two customclientraw.txt files on the server after ftp from the PC's running WD.

http://monadh.com/readcustomclientraw.php (updates every 10 secs)    :hello2: !!!! Link removed !!!! :hello2:

These PC's are identical, hardware and software, and are dedicated to running WD using fully up to date Win10 pro.

Observing the customeclientraw files it can be seen that the wind chill temp is nearly always in excess of the ambient temp on both sites.

use a new .zip update to fix (I needed a stronger coffee to see the mistake in the code)

Brian great :D Glad the stronger coffee worked :wink:

No wind at either site at present, but I assume the wind chill formula will kick in when the winds start blowing.

Thanks for your help.

Yes, seems to be OK now. Thanks again, Brian.

One more thing on windchill, for Mark: in customclientrawlocal.txt "TwchillTL" should point to tag %minwindcht%, not
%maxwindchillt%.

If people only want to see the minimum windchill temp we might as well show the right time!

Mark, the standard windchill tags are:-

%windch% ...................current wind-chill
%windchnodp% ...............current wind-chill, no decimal place
%minwindch% ................minimum wind-chill
%minwindcht% ...............time this occurred
%maxwindchill% .............maximum wind-chill
%maxwindchillt% ............time this occurred

The one you used does not appear to work #-o, but "%minwindch% ................minimum wind-chill", works for me :)

Minimum windchill (wchillTL) tag (%minwindch%) was always correct in customclientrawlocal, it was time of minimum windchill (TwchillTL) tag (%minwindcht%) that was wrong.

OK, just to be 100% sure before I commit...  :wink:
Code: [Select]
    "wchill": "%windch%",
    "wchillTL": "%minwindch%",
    "TwchillTL": "%minwindcht%",
