Help Updating Old Weather Skin.

Post by 4thHorseman »

First time here, Seem like a great community. Maybe I can get some help with the Weather Skin I have. The Weather Portion specifically the Temp and Location and condition don't seem to be functioning. I brought this skin over from an old computer. The Location should be Palm City, FL, USA.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: - Fixed - open Control Panel, Internet Options - clear browser cache, refresh skin/rainmeter.

You may have just had bad timing.

My Vclouds 2 went dead a couple days ago and I haven't seen any chatter as to why.

I came here to see if anyone else was having the same issue. I fixed things when it was updated back in Jan and everything was fine up until a couple days ago.

Hoping others will chime in and a fix gets posted. It's just so handy to have on the desktop.

Starting with Jan. 3, 2019 http://weather.yahooapis.com is no longer available.
Replace the existing file with the file in the archive.
Then refresh the skin
Weather.zip
