Your provider changed your http site to https
If you click your site url above your will end at https://www.walschap.net/weer/wx/wx.php
Therefor the  WDL FLASH script needs to be updated.
Download a new version and probably the problem is gone.

make sure to update any URL's in the .xml and .html code to include the https instead of http

Hi team,

considering same issue, after exactly 1 year, ... unfortunately, ….
I migrated my station from a very old PC (18years :-)  windows XP WDL version 10.33w) to an old one (6 years windows 10 April 2018 edition and last version of WDL)
I read everything and followed all instructions, and the migration looked to be working like a charm. I checked the website after a while, and everything ok there.
But today after a check I get again, serial error. But if I understand the system, everything should still be working since WDL is independent of the local system and interprets only the client raw data. This data is still being updated, so that’s nice as well.
I have a short script that interpretes the raw data, and doing si I know info is accuratly updated
https://www.walschap.net/weer/wpda.php
I must admit that I did not change anything last year, the problem solved itself?! (understand who can)

I now did the instructions mentioned above, i.e. change the mentioning’s of http=> https without success.
I tried all suggested solutions and I think I'm conform with all known issues
Any suggestions, please advice, I'm all ears?

Windows 10:

Does not work in Edge or Chrome

Weather Display Live
You need to install v8, or greater, of Flash Player from Adobe and have javascript enabled to view Weather Display Live.
Not a problem with WD-Live.  This error message is caused by using swfobject.js which is not updated for the latest browsers.

Does not work on a Mac, same error caused by swfobject.js

I have not seen any message about serial number errors.

Hi Wim,

it might be the java, but I have here at home an other PC, I tried there, all browsers work???
I know it has to do something with the HTTPS
Indeed you are also right, but go to my page, click on mesomap, then you get the possibility to allow adobe flash player
go back to "waarnemingen " and it works......

UNTIL
I typed the adres with HTTPS and suddenly he wouldn't start anymor: the serial issue errror
when I type in my browser without, the broswers revers to https and it doensn't work any more :-(

Is there something in the script I could alter to provoque an always working weather display live panel?
My chrome is V66, Firefox v60, ie Edge latest and IE also latest version 11.48

please advise

If you are using HTTPS
Then make sure to adjust any references to HTTP to https
In the. Html and. XML files

Hi. As mentioned. I Tried that yesterday already without success. I then reverted to the original situation, since that had always worked.  I 'll try to adapt the xml and html and php  content http to https again.
