Title: Davis console firmware 3.15 with VirtualVP and VSPE.
Post by: ajcm73 on November 04, 2017, 04:48:59 PM
Hello:

I have firmware 1.90 in my davis console with virtualVP because I use 3 meteo software ( weatherdisplay, VWS and cumulusMX) but I upgrade the firmware 3.15 the software VWS donīt work and today I tested firmware 3.15 with VSPE but now Weatherdisplay donīt work. Somebody have firmware 3.15 with virtualvp, VSPE or other software that it works fine?

I have a weatherlink serial and I use Usb to serial adapter by Davis.

Thanks.

the problem is with the LOOP2 I think you will find
WD should work , if VWS is not running

Then with firmware 3.15 I can not use the programs at the same time?

Another thing, I would like to connect the weatherdisplay directly to the davis console and not use virtualvp or anything. I use the weatherdisplay for my website but from the VWS I only need 2 data files and cumulusmx is only to save data i can delette this, so I would like to know if there is any way to connect the vws and the cumulusmx to the weatherdisplay program.

cumulus should still work
its VWS that is the problem
it detects the updated firmware and then requests the loop2 data, which stuff things up in virtualvp

And I knew the problem with LOOP2 when firmware 3.12 came out two years ago, but now I was waiting for a solution to update the firmware.

I'll explain you well, my boot sequence order in startwatch is:
1st Cumulus MX
2nd VWS
3rd Weatherdisplay.

With firmware 3.15 and virtualvp cumulusmx and weatherdisplay work fine but VWS does not work.

But with firmware 3.15 and VSPE cumulusmx and VWS work fine but in this case weatherdisplay does not work.

I tried virtualvp then I tried VSPE and then I tried to use virtualvp and created virtual com ports with vspe and VWS did not work.

On internet the people coment that I must upgrade but I donīt have problems with firmware 1.90.

I like upgrade all things, all days I see your web page to find upgrades of weatherdisplay.

Thanks Brian.

yes, but, there is no real need to upgrade the davis console firmware, especially when its known to break virtual vp (this has been discussed on this and other forums before)
