I found this error as well this morning in my WindowsWeatherEnterpriseAPI skin and NOVAweatherAPI skin. In addition, looking at the logs I saw this -

Code: Select all

<HTML><HEAD>

You don't have permission to access "http://api.weather.com/v3/aggcommon/v3-wx-observations-current;v3-wx-forecast-daily-15day;v3alertsHeadlines;v3-location-point;v3-wx-forecast-hourly-12hour?" on this server.<P>

I've had this in my variables for the API key up to today - 21d8a80b3d6b444998a80b3d6b1449d3
Did the API key change, or did they alter the API in some way or am I missing something after the Windows update I took this morning? :???:

To add to the data points, I have had all of my installed skins utilizing the weather.com API fail this morning as well. Hope this is just a glitch on weather.com's side and not something that will require a new source and new designs as I am trying to plan out and forecast for a trip coming up and about a week.

EDIT: Yup! The API Key changed. Xenium has updated their skins to work again.

Figured it out.

Saw another post that mentioned looking at the source code for weather.com

Found that there is a new API key in there.

Go to your skins folder and find the Resources folder - locate the variables.inc file and open it to edit.

Should be a variable for the API Key, it probably says the one I posted previously. Change it to this one and save the file, then refresh the skin.

Code: Select all

Started displaying data again and the errors ceased.

The correct one is:
C:\Users\<your user name>\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\Gadgets\@Resources

File name: WeatherComJSONVariables.inc

Line 37, change to:

Code: Select all

APIKey=71f92ea9dd2f4790b92ea9dd2f779061

Changing the API key worked. Thanks a lot. My skins are working again.

Thank you for the quick and easy fix.

If I might add something, "Gadgets" should be the name of the skin you're using and needs updating.

So, the path would look like this:

C:\Users\<your user name>\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\<skin name>\@Resources

I changed the API Key on my Win11 client, as well as my Win10 client. The Win11 client works after that change, but the Win10 client does not, even after reboot. Is there anything different to be done on Win10?

I'm on Win10 and it works for me, so it should work for you too. I don't think this is so much a Windows version problem, but rather a skin one. Are you using the exact same skin on Win11 and Win10, and if not, which one are you using on Win10?
