Re: Upgraded computer, now having issues...
- If I had to guess I would say that the communication thread is stuck. What type of console is it?
If you are going to sit and watch it, also un-check Errors Only. Un-check all Upload check boxes and check "Show console com. Errors". This should show if the program is stuck attempting to retrieve console data.

Then it just stops updating, although WUHU doesn't seem to recognize it. It continues to load the same values until I restart the computer. The log doesn't show any errors, even with "Only fatal errors" unchecked. If I try to close and restart WUHU, I get a dialog box stating unable to open port, along with additional information about a Davis VP2.

I set flow control to "Hardware" on a whim, but I'm not sure it made a difference. I have unchecked the box allowing the computer to put the device to sleep, and set the computer itself to never sleep.
