    I seem to get erratic updates to wunderground using WUHU with my Setup. Hardware Lacrosse WS3600, P4 1500Mb RAM Software Latest Heavyweather PRO wnd XP Pro

      I seem to get erratic updates to wunderground using WUHU with my
      Setup.

      Hardware Lacrosse WS3600, P4 1500Mb RAM
      Software Latest Heavyweather PRO wnd XP Pro

      Somehow the Beta version of Heavyweather does not work for me.

      What could cause these gaps in updates that lasts exactly one hour?

      That is interesting. Looking at the Heavyweather site, it appears the version that you have does work with Publisher, so that should be fine. Do you know how

        That is interesting. Looking at the Heavyweather site, it appears the
        version that you have does work with Publisher, so that should be
        fine.

        Do you know how often data is written to currdat.lst file? Is that
        configurable in the Heavyweather Pro application? It looks like the
        data is only being written to currdat.lst (the same file that
        publisher looks at) once an hour.

        The only other thing that I can think of at the moment is that the
        minimum upload period is changed from the default of 300 seconds?

            That is interesting. It does appear that the uploads do cease for a
            period of exactly one hour.

            Do you have any sort of scheduled tasks or power-saving settings
            enabled? Any reason the PC would be busy during that period? Virus
            scan?

            If we assume that it is not your PC causing the problems, either
            Heavyweather is not writing the file or WUHU is not detecting the
            change.

            In order to isolate the problem, if you could install a file
            monitoring application like the one listed here:

            http://www.download.com/FileGuard/3000-2248_4-10429462.html?tag=lst-0-
            3

            We can determine whether or not the currdat.lst file is being written.

            After installation, specifiy the folder that currdat.lst file is
            stored (usually c:\heavyweather), enter lst for the file type, then
            hit start.

            As it detects changes to the file, it will post a message in the list
            box. If you could let this run overnight, we may be able to find out
            where the failure is.

            Thanks.

            I forgot to mention, when using FileGaurd, you also need to click the check box to enable events to monitor, File Modifications before hitting start. Thanks.

                I'll give it a go, but I don't have time the next couple of weeks.
                I'll move everything to a dedicated computer this autumn. Hopefully
                that will cure most of it. What I start to believe is that this is
                no problem as long as the PC is 'awake'. Looks to me the gaps is
                only present when XP pops out to the welcome screen.

                I'll let you know what is going on. Like I mentioned, I'll be
                traveling the next couple of weeks.
                has anybody else seen anything similar to what I'm seeing here?

                I also have one question what operating system to run on a dedicated
                weather PC? What do you guys think? WIN98, NT, 2000, XP?

                regards
