      Hi everybody,

      I successfully connected our Davis Vantage Pro2 station through WUHU with Weather Underground (KMIADRIA4). Our weather station is the USB model so I had to find out by trial and error, which COM port the virtual serial port was mapped to - in my case COM3. It now works but I have a few questions and issues:
      1.) As I needed to use a virtual usb to com port to connect WUHU, I cannot run WeatherLink to locally safe our data onto the specified net drive in our university network. How can I easily setup that all data are locally saved at 1 min. values?
      2.) The log function records some things that I am not sure if they are error messages or just status reports:

      3.) I installed the software with my faculty login but specified that it is installed for all users. However, if I log off, WUHU is shut down. Do I need to start WUHU from a low privilege account and always keep this account running on the machine?

      Thanks soo much in advance!

        1) I am not sure what you are saying. If you want to run WUHU and Weatherlink at the same time look in to a program called VirtualVP.

        2) What form of data are you talking about? In the history.dat? In a .csv file? Please be more specific.

        3) Un-check "Show console Com. errors" in the log screen and you will not see these messages. That feature is for debugging and is normally not enabled.

          Thanks. I will check this out. My main concern is that I want to keep a history file with the original 1 min. resolution. Does WUHU save all data and in which file and format?


          > 2) What form of data are you talking about? In the history.dat? In a .csv file? Please be more specific.

          I don't care about the format as long as it is easy to export and use in any plotting program.


          > 3) Un-check "Show console Com. errors" in the log screen and you will not see these messages. That feature is for debugging and is normally not enabled.

          Thanks. I will try.

          Best, Tom

            Yes, you can save data every minute. By default it saves many readings per minute on a Davis, every 3-4 seconds.

            The default format of the data is the La Crosse Heavy Weather Pro binary format. This is cannot be directly imported to other applications.

            You probably want a .csv (comma separated values) file that you can directly pull in to programs like Excel. To do this you will need to create what is called a template that executes every one minute. See the online user manual for how to create a template and post here if you have questions.

            There are also printable charts creating within the program. If you are only after charts, that might suffice.

              Thanks,

              I followed the guide and changed the WHU Configuration.ini to enable the Write Extended Currentdat Setting. Then I changed the sample Actions.txt to the below - however, no files are created until now...

              Thanks in advance!

                Are the templates not working correctly?

                Everything looks Ok except on the file copy commands, there is no + needed at the end of the file name. I do not believe that the copy command will append, it always overwrites the destination file.

                I would need to see your source templates, templates\csv.txt and templates\highsandlows.txt.

                Were the output files on w:\ created?

                You can send me your templates and output files via email to wuhu_software at yahoo.com. If there is a problem with the template please also send a description of the problem if it is not obvious.

                  Thanks again. I use the original templates. I did only change the action.txt - I try to create the data file in the program directory and then copy them to a net drive, which is W:. Unfortunately, no data file is created in the /data directory of the program location - and I get a copy error to W: - I also tried to use the network ID instead \\Halo/Weatherstation but it also gives me a copy error in the log. What do I do wrong? Can it be a user rights issue?

                  Thanks, Tom

Our weather station is the USB model so I had to find out by trial and error, which COM port the virtual serial port was mapped to - in my case COM3.

                  Hey Tom, That s because the line that contains template: generates your data file. Another way of putting it is the template: command creates the data.csv

                    Hey Tom,

                    That's because the line that contains 'template:' generates your data file.
                    Another way of putting it is the 'template:' command creates the data.csv

                    You don't need to copy it to W: if it is being created on W:

                    Try just:

                    template:"C:\Program Files\WUHU\templates\csv.txt" "W:\Weather Station\SienaHei\data.csv+"
                    template:"C:\Program Files\WUHU\templates\highsandlows.txt" "W:\Weather Station\SienaHei\HighsAndLows.html"


                    The + on the data.csv means it will keep adding data to that file.
                    The highsandlows.txt is a template to create a html page.

                    Next step is make sure you have turned on Alerts/Actions.

                    Hi John, I tried that now it creates the two files but they do not contain data but just the field variables of the template file. See attached files. Thanks

                      Hi John,

                      I tried that now it creates the two files but they do not contain data but just the field variables of the template file. See attached files.

                      Thanks in advance!

                      Tom

                      P.S. How can I upload these files?

I did only change the action.txt - I try to create the data file in the program directory and then copy them to a net drive, which is W:. Unfortunately, no data file is created in the /data directory of the program location - and I get a copy error to W: - I also tried to use the network ID instead \\Halo/Weatherstation but it also gives me a copy error in the log. What do I do wrong? Can it be a user rights issue?

                      Tom, I do not see your attachments. You can make a folder in the files area of the group and upload them. After we are done with them we can delete the folder.

                        Tom,

                        I do not see your attachments.

                        You can make a folder in the files area of the group and upload them. After we are done with them we can delete the folder. Just make sure you tell us where you posted them.

                        As I mentioned to the other user, you must enable the writing of the currdat.lst in the general section. Enable write extended data as well.

                        Hi John,

                        I tried that now it creates the two files but they do not contain data but just the field variables of the template file. See attached files.

                        Thanks in advance!

                        Tom

                        P.S. How can I upload these files?

I did only change the action.txt - I try to create the data file in the program directory and then copy them to a net drive, which is W:. Unfortunately, no data file is created in the /data directory of the program location - and I get a copy error to W: - I also tried to use the network ID instead \\Halo/Weatherstation but it also gives me a copy error in the log. What do I do wrong? Can it be a user rights issue?

                        Hi again, The created data files are in folder: http://tech.dir.groups.yahoo.com/group/wuhu_software_group/files/Siena%20Heights/ They are expanded every 5

                          Hi again,

                          The created data files are in folder:
                          http://tech.dir.groups.yahoo.com/group/wuhu_software_group/files/Siena%20Heights/

                          They are expanded every 5 minutes so data.csv is now more than 5MB but only contains field names - no data. I do not have access to the configuration file from home. Would that help you to see if I did not set the settings right?

                          Thanks, Tom

I did only change the action.txt - I try to create the data file in the program directory and then copy them to a net drive, which is W:. Unfortunately, no data file is created in the /data directory of the program location - and I get a copy error to W: - I also tried to use the network ID instead \\Halo/Weatherstation but it also gives me a copy error in the log. What do I do wrong? Can it be a user rights issue?

To do this you will need to create what is called a template that executes every one minute. See the online user manual for how to create a template and post here if you have questions.

                            I also added my configuration file, the modified Action.txt and the NON-MODIFIED csv.txt and HighsAndLows.txt templates that I use and the current WUHU Configuration Data.ini file.

                            Thanks in advance...

I did only change the action.txt - I try to create the data file in the program directory and then copy them to a net drive, which is W:. Unfortunately, no data file is created in the /data directory of the program location - and I get a copy error to W: - I also tried to use the network ID instead \\Halo/Weatherstation but it also gives me a copy error in the log. What do I do wrong? Can it be a user rights issue?

To do this you will need to create what is called a template that executes every one minute. See the online user manual for how to create a template and post here if you have questions.

                              Tom,

                              I couple of questions

                              1) Was W:\Weather Station\SienaHei\data.csv created?

                              2) You must specify the action file under the Action/Alarm screen. Hit the button next to the On Weather Update, in the Action on Activation edit box, you would enter the complete path to your Action.txt file:

                              actionfile:"C:\Temp\Actions.txt"

                              If the Actions.txt were in the C:\Temp folder.

                              Have you done this step?

I did only change the action.txt - I try to create the data file in the program directory and then copy them to a net drive, which is W:. Unfortunately, no data file is created in the /data directory of the program location - and I get a copy error to W: - I also tried to use the network ID instead \\Halo/Weatherstation but it also gives me a copy error in the log. What do I do wrong? Can it be a user rights issue?

To do this you will need to create what is called a template that executes every one minute. See the online user manual for how to create a template and post here if you have questions.

Our weather station is the USB model so I had to find out by trial and error, which COM port the virtual serial port was mapped to - in my case COM3.

                              Hi and thanks! Yes, the file data.csv was created in W: I attached it in the files area. I link to my action file which is located in the WUHU installation

                                Hi and thanks! Yes, the file data.csv was created in W: I attached it in the files area.
                                I link to my action file which is located in the WUHU installation folder.

                                Thanks, Tom

I did only change the action.txt - I try to create the data file in the program directory and then copy them to a net drive, which is W:. Unfortunately, no data file is created in the /data directory of the program location - and I get a copy error to W: - I also tried to use the network ID instead \\Halo/Weatherstation but it also gives me a copy error in the log. What do I do wrong? Can it be a user rights issue?

To do this you will need to create what is called a template that executes every one minute. See the online user manual for how to create a template and post here if you have questions.

                                  Tom,

                                  I am not sure what is going on there.

                                  I would suggest that you install Team Viewer 6 (a free application) then send me your ID and password in email (to wuhu_software at yahoo.com) and I can take a look.

                                  Going out for a walk right now, back in an hour or so.

I did only change the action.txt - I try to create the data file in the program directory and then copy them to a net drive, which is W:. Unfortunately, no data file is created in the /data directory of the program location - and I get a copy error to W: - I also tried to use the network ID instead \\Halo/Weatherstation but it also gives me a copy error in the log. What do I do wrong? Can it be a user rights issue?

To do this you will need to create what is called a template that executes every one minute. See the online user manual for how to create a template and post here if you have questions.

                                    Tom,

                                    I am not sure what is going on there.

                                    I would suggest that you install Team Viewer 6 (a free application) then send me your ID and password in email (to wuhu_software at yahoo.com) and I can take a look.

                                    Going out for a walk right now, back in an hour or so.

                                    also added my configuration file, the modified Action.txt and the NON-MODIFIED csv.txt and HighsAndLows.txt templates that I use and the current WUHU Configuration Data.ini file.

                                    data.csv is now more than 5MB but only contains field names - no data. I do not have access to the configuration file from home. Would that help you to see if I did not set the settings right?

                                    it creates the two files but they do not contain data but just the field variables of the template file. See attached files.

                                    original templates. I did only change the action.txt - I try to create the data file in the program directory and then copy them to a net drive, which is W:. Unfortunately, no data file is created in the /data directory of the program location - and I get a copy error to W: - I also tried to use the network ID instead \\Halo/Weatherstation but it also gives me a copy error in the log. What do I do wrong? Can it be a user rights issue?

                                    + needed at the end of the file name. I do not believe that the copy command will append, it always overwrites the destination file.

                                      Hi,

                                      I will go to my workstation in the university after taking a walk with my dog myself. I will then send you the user/password. However, I am not sure that it will work as our network admins are quite paranoid and I cannot get e.g. VPN with my old university library working...

                                      Thanks, Tom

I did only change the action.txt - I try to create the data file in the program directory and then copy them to a net drive, which is W:. Unfortunately, no data file is created in the /data directory of the program location - and I get a copy error to W: - I also tried to use the network ID instead \\Halo/Weatherstation but it also gives me a copy error in the log. What do I do wrong? Can it be a user rights issue?

To do this you will need to create what is called a template that executes every one minute. See the online user manual for how to create a template and post here if you have questions.

                                        Check your WUHU Configuration.INI file for:

                                        [General Settings]
                                        Write Extended Currentdat=1

                                        If it doesn't exist add it.

                                        If I run the files from the examples.zip off the manual website
                                        (action.txt and csv.txt) to produce a csv file, it works correctly with
                                        the Write Extended Currentdat=1
                                        I see the same results you get in your csv when it is turned off or not
                                        listed in the WUHU Configuration.INI.

                                        Here is my output from the examples.zip action.txt and csv.txt:
                                        Using:

Unfortunately, no data file is created in the /data directory of the program location - and I get a copy error to W: - I also tried to use the network ID instead \\Halo/Weatherstation but it also gives me a copy error in the log. What do I do wrong? Can it be a user rights issue?
