I tried exactly that but it did not work! I'm not crazy about having to install CCleaner but after I ran it the weather skin started working.

You might prefer BleachBit, which can be downloaded as a portable app and doesn't need to be installed.

https://www.bleachbit.org/download/windows

It does pretty much what CCleaner does as far as "cleanup" goes, and has the charm of being just that, and not a lot of extra bloat.

Thanks for the suggestion and I'll take a look at it. But since I already installed CC and I had used it extensively in the past I'll probably stick with it.

Yeah, I like CCleaner. They had a bit of a rough patch a couple of years ago, when they were bought by Avast, but I think they have gotten their act together pretty well.

While I haven't ran into this issue so I can't test it, I wonder if anyone has tried the ForceReload=1 on the parent webparser measure.

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.
