I think you will find that if you change the API Key to 21d8a80b3d6b444998a80b3d6b1449d3, it will begin to work again.

The variable is located into the @Resources\Variables.inc file. Open this file, find the old APIKey=d522aa97197fd864d36b418f39ebb323 variable and replace it with the one provided by jsmorely above (APIKey=21d8a80b3d6b444998a80b3d6b1449d3). Save and refresh the skin.

Thanks for your help..!
I am not a programmer just a simple Multi-Media Artist so please be patient with me.

When you mention:

1) The variable is located into the @Resources\Variables.inc file. I don't see that file ( image attach )

2) Open this file, how do you open that file, it's a Word pad document

3) Find the old APIKey=d522aa97197fd864d36b418f39ebb323 I use the Find search with no result even with only APIKey

So frustrating to not be able to solve a simple problem.

Thanks for your patience and help...!

The variable is located in 'RainformerHWi\@Resources\variables.inc'

Open that file in any text editor.
Scroll to line number 272 in that file, and change the value after the equal sign in APIKey to 21d8a80b3d6b444998a80b3d6b1449d3

Save the file using the same name and extension: 'variables.inc'

Refresh the Rainformer weather skin, or unload and reload it.

It should work, at least does for me. Please pack the whole Skins\RainformerAIDA64 config and upload the package here, to can check it.

Wild guess but check if you have any space characters that could stand at the end of the api key, e.g: ....49d3 . See the space at the end? It can be easy to overlook it and if it is there it can cause the issue.
