Discussion and questions about Cumulus weather station software version 1. This section and its subforums are the main place to get help with Cumulus. Anything which is not specific to the type of weather station goes in here; for anything specific to a type of weather station, please use the appropriate subforum. Use the 'website development' section for any questions relating to creating or running a web site for Cumulus data. Discussion of the stations themselves in these sections is fine.

Downloading Data to Laptop

Postby Balrobert » Sat Jan 07, 2017 10:55 pm

Cumulus Version 1.9.4. Build 1099
Weather Station: Aercus WS2083
Laptop is running Windows 7

My outside kit is transmitting to the indoor base station (receiver) without any apparent problems. I can see new data there each day. However, when I plug the base station into my laptop using the USB cable I cannot get the data to download to my laptop. What am I doing wrong?

If you zip up the diags folder and attach it to a reply in this thread, I'll take a look (when I get chance, I am on holiday).

Hi Steve
Thank you for your reply. I am sorry to be a complete ignoramus - but I don't understand your request. I am a novice with this technology and am trying to get to grips with it all.

When I plug in the base station the laptop recognises it and registers it as plugged in. I am not sure what diags are or how to zip them and send them to you. Hope you can still help in spite of my ignorance

kind regards

Take a look at the "Please read this post before posting" link at the top of each forum page. It has instructions for sending the diags.
