WD Questions / Re: Looking for a WD setting / Resolved
« Last post by baeronb on Today at 09:00:45 PM »
I will try it as a non-admin.  It's installed and running from d:\wdisplay.  I figure as long as it's in the root directory it's still OK?  If it continues to hang now and again I'll consider setting up an auto restart of the software.

WD is only being used for the Davis and getting data from a weatherlinkIP.  I have been running VIS reader simultaneously to update WU from my old Acurite.  This morning when it was hung up I turned off the VIS reader and am waiting to see if things settle down. 

I'll have to look more closely at your videos.  There are so many options and settings it has been a real learning curve ,and I'm at the bottom of the hill.  I'm amazed at how much time can pass while I sit in front of my computer messing around with the software.

you could use task scheduler to start WD (and as admin)
or turn off UAC in windows maybe
(I myself run WD not as admin on W10 at it works OK (make sure to install and run from c:\wdisplay if not running as admin)
I do have a youtube video about that
if WD was still responsive then it sounds like the VIS reader was not updating instead
make sure windows is not set to power down the USB (selective suspend). I have a youtube video on how to set that too

no, not all
I was just trying to find out why your sensor was not being found
but that turned out to be that hid.dll file

Because you asked for the VID and PID to the laser sensor are the scripts that you sent me specific for my use alone?

While we're on the subject, I have WD setup to run as administrator, is that recommended?
If I were to set the software to reboot, will it get past the "do you want this program to make changes to this computer?" pop-up?

I've been having issues with the software hanging up now and again.  This morning I turned on the monitor to see what was going on as the data had stopped uploading to WU.  WD was idle and no data update there either.  I restarted WD, clicked through the pop-up and all was working then.

its not needed to be using the latest VIS reader if the version you have works OK
I provided the code for VIS reader, as the author said he would help me improve it
now he has taken that code and run with it and is trying to create an all round weather station software

the hid.dll file is not in the WD install files (it might have been a long time ago)

I can only assume that the VIS reader is only needed to capture the data for weather display.  In my experience VIS reader updates add features and functionality to the UI.  Those features can be pretty neat if you are using the reader as your interface to the data or, if it is the main software for your set-up.  For instance, one recent update includes fire weather information.

Very much so Ken....thanks.....just got off the phone with 1and1.....a little discussion about them not being competitive and the price came down to $11/month, same PRO package, something more agreeable.....I've been using them since 2006 so maybe long term customer had something to do with it as well.

Thanks Again

Steve
