Updated to new WeatherLobby 3.90 but now issues

Postby Blade » Mon Jan 04, 2010 9:08 am

I had been running WeatherLobby 3.75 for a very long time and it has worked 100%.
I wish I had stayed on it now but I updated to the new WeatherLobby and now nothing is updating automatically. I have it set to update every 20 minutes but nothing updates.
Anyone else seeing this?
Thx

I too am seeing this. It will not update and is really slow to change cities. The only way I can get update is to reboot the box.

You have to completely uninstall the old before you install the new. If you don't, it will not work - there are other posts on this.

To delete the old
Quit MLServer
Delete the MLWeather, MLWeahter_Large in the images directory
Delete the mlweahterlobby.dll in the plugins directory
Delete the Weather* files in the data directory
I also deleted all the XML files in the data directory relating to WL - there is 1 per location you have

I then restarted my machine and installed the new WL

Has been working well - except my map issues that is really frustrating (as mentioned in my other post). I suggest you only activate a few maps and don't update too frequently - I am seeing a few maps/minute updating as a worst case - thus, if you have 25 maps and update every 10 minutes you will have problem - I update every 60 minutes and have had no problems.
