Hi everyone. So recently, I've noticed that the new API key of SmallCleanWeather (21d8a80b3d6b444998a80b3d6b1449d3) hasn't been working for quite a while, even though I've closely checked and I'm sure that there're no spacing or grammatical mistakes. Are there any updated solutions for this problem? I'd be happy if anyone can help me :D

Again, many thanks for the help from all of you amazing users.

Yep, there is. Try replacing the APIKey variable with the following one: APIKey=21d8a80b3d6b444998a80b3d6b1449d3. Don't forget to refresh the skin after replacing it.

Isn't this the same key the OP is using (and apparently failed to work with)? :???:

Just in case, if by any chance the OP using the correct key but a Russian IP (through a VPN or otherwise), it might be because of this (alternatives exist in such a case, as the following replies mention)...

Yes and no. Is the same which trannguyengiakhang posted in his reply, but it's different than what the Small Clean Weather skin is using, at least the one I've downloaded. Since trannguyengiakhang didn't post a link, I just assumed he's using the API Key existing in the package. When I replaced the existing key which didn't work, with the new one, the skin has started to work.

Good to be taken into account.

I'm sorry but I can't interpret what "new API key" means. Just assumed he's using the original key existing in the package (even if he posted another in his reply) and can't get the skin working with that key. My bad if I misinterpreted the question.

I think trannguyengiakhang lives in Vietnam.
For about 2 weeks, users from Vietnam (as well as users from Russia) no longer have access to the weather.com website.

As alternatives, users from Vietnam and Russia can use the WeatherPlace skin:
https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?t=34614
or the Open-Meteo Weather skin:

Users ifrom Russia can also use the Russian Win10 Widget Weather skin:
