This worked for me on Windows 7:

Control Panel -> Internet Options/Properties -> Delete Browsing History -> uncheck the option to preserve favorites, then check all the others to delete everything -> Delete

After a long wait for the deletions to complete, I then loaded Weather Meter, and it connected without issue. Thanks for the information, everyone!

I thought about using it actually, but went for the UserAgent/Header route instead and never got the chance to try it. I somehow doubt it would have worked, since as far as I could see, the issue persisted even after restarts, and in those moments WebParser "reloads" the page anyway (since it probably doesn't have it in its cache yet), isn't it?

Watch on YouTube to get a larger size.







Whether or not you check "Preserve Favorites website data" isn't important, you can uncheck that if you like. It only would matter if you had weather.com set as a "Favorite" in Internet Explorer, which is about as likely as hen's teeth.

After cleaning up with this, I would recommend restarting Rainmeter, so WebParser gets a fresh start.

And remember, friends don't let friends use Internet Explorer...

I have multiple reports on DA that confirm this in indeed the fix. It appears your suspicion about cookies is correct. Clearing the IE temp files only doesn't do it, you need to clear the cookies too.

Good. I'm glad to hear that it looks like just using the tools that come with Windows, i.e. Control Panel, works for this. Whatever you think about CCleaner, I'm always happy to have a recommendation that doesn't include 3rd-party utilities.

The same was with my Rainformer Weather skin. The only thing that worked was location, everything else was empty whatever i did.
Compared the current JSON code of the site, but seems unchanged.
Also, some users of my suite reported the issue from yesterday.

Finally, after many tries to find out what's the cause of it, i scanned my PC with CCleaner and seems it SOLVED the issue. Now everything is working flawlessly from that very moment.
I also did a Registry scan.

Here are the settings i use in CCleaner:

This HELPED me so Thanks Pulsedriver :thumbup: :thumbup:

There are many ways to be different - there is only one way to be yourself - be amazing at it

The law of averages says what it means; even if you get everything right, you will get something wrong. Therefore; self managing error trapping initiates another set of averages - amongst the errors, some of them will not be errors, instead those instances will appear to be "luck". One cannot complain of the 'appearance' of 'infinite regress of causation', even if it does not have a predictable pattern, only that it requires luck to achieve.

Clearing IE settings/Cookies etc didn't change a thing for me. In fact I have the box ticked to clear them all on exit anyway.

Tried CC Cleaner too, no joy.

Still not working.
