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.

As it says, something else is using the file when Cumulus is trying to write to it. Often caused by antivirus software or similar.

Is cumulus running when you are trying to edit the file? you need to stop cumulus first.

On your Windows 7 pc press CTRL SHIFT and ESC together to see task manager and that shows you what processes are running.

http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/FAQ#I_am_getting_I.2FO_error_32_or_I.2FO_error_103 mentions some of the processes that you might look for.

If you are still stuck, there is software that claims to help you find out what processes are accessing what files, find it with a search engine, but only you can decide if it is trustworthy enough to install on your pc.

Process Explorer from Sysinternals is very good and allows you to watch each individual process so you can see disk read/writes etc.
