Re: 1st Installation will not run........

That error usually occurs if you are not running MX as administrator (from the right click menu or from an administrator command window).

Re: New Hardware - no Dashboard but updates working??

If the dashboard, now, and gauges pages aren’t working but everything else is, then you have an issue with the websockets protocol, as mentioned in the MX FAQ post. You can switch those pages to ‘ajax’ if required.

Re: WXQUAKES PROBLEM??

Akamai is a Content Delivery Network. It’s quite possible that USGS use it for their web services.

Re: CumulusMX: how to correct wrong rainfall data ?

Edit daily totals in dayfile.txt with Cumulus stopped. If you have edited correctly, monthly and annual totals will be correct when you start Cumulus - if not, you have some other problem.

Lots of information about this in the FAQ and wiki.

Re: Internet consumption in CumulusMX and Mono

It could be trying to upload the realtimegauges.txt file - look for the setting and turn it off.

Re: Oregon WMR89

I don’t know much about the WMR89, but one thing I do know is that it doesn’t work with Cumulus, if that matters to you.

Re: (error ) fatal unhandled enhandled exception

I’m pretty sure Mono 2 is too old, it has too much missing. 3.2.8 normally works, so your best approach is probably to try to get that working - by posting information here if required.

Re: Cumulus start up problems/help on Windows 10

As I said earlier, just as with Cumulus 1, Cumulus MX is no longer able to obtain authentication keys for Twitter. So, yes, you may as well disable Twitter in MX. I can’t think of any way that having Twitter enabled would cause MX to be unable to read data from the station, so there must be some oth...

Re: Cumulus start up problems/help on Windows 10

Type http://localhost:8998 into your browser (or just click on that link) while MX is running, and see what happens.

Re: at System.Net.WebConnection.HandleError(WebExceptionStatus st, System.Exception e,

Diags should show PWS updates if diag logging is on. Errors should be logged anyway. Note that having configured PWS in MX, then as with many settings, you may need to restart MX before it will start.

Re: at System.Net.WebConnection.HandleError(WebExceptionStatus st, System.Exception e,

Bob, if you are not already uploading to PWS Weather, then it would be worthwhile doing that, as the mechanism and protocol are virtually identical to WU, and if nothing else it would serve to confirm that the problems you are having with WU lie solely with WU.

Re: at System.Net.WebConnection.HandleError(WebExceptionStatus st, System.Exception e,

It’s not clear to me why you think this isn’t simply yet another problem at Weather Underground, given their history of problems, and the fact that people on other forums who aren’t using Cumulus (e.g wxforum) are also currently experiencing problems uploading? As mentioned by Jeff, above. Cumulus i...
