Arrow WeatherBug Won't Show Data

Hello again ... I'm having problems getting weatherbug to work with XP Pro 32 bit and Win 7 U 32 bit. I have another computer that has no issues with weatherbug with an XP OS. I've uninstalled and reinstalled it on both OS yet instead of data I have "?". I have the same anti virus and firewall on the computer that has no issues with weatherbug and the setting for them are the same on the computer that has issues with the software. Anyone out there that can help me out with this problem?

Default Re: WeatherBug Won't Show Data

If it is pulling data from noaa.gov or weather.gov, there has been a change of formats, that has caused some weather programs to not work properly. If you have Firefox, you can use the Weather Watcher add-on, from Singer's Creations.

Also make sure that you have tried different weather stations also. Weatherbug is one of those programs that people tend to go past, since it tends to serve up too many advertisements.

Thumbs up Re: WeatherBug Won't Show Data

Thank you very much ... I was thinking of finding another weather application, but I didn't know what ... that addon for firefox is a great idea.

Arrow Re: WeatherBug Won't Show Data

I added on the weather watcher but I don't see it ... I use the add toolbar function and I right click on the icon for what I think is the weather ... ask it to retrieve the current weather and nothing. What am I doing wrong?

You can add your location for weather watcher, by going to addins in tools, and then change preferences. Also if you right click on the icon, you can then also choose to change preferences.

Arrow Re: WeatherBug Won't Show Data

I see the options in the add on section but I don't see the weather report or condition in the browser how do I see it? Or did I do something wrong?

For Weather Watcher, it shows up i the add-on bar at the bottom of the browser, but you have to set it up, by adding what cities you wish to see the weather in.
