Question 1: Exactly how did you install the latest version of the driver?

Question 2: Is WeatherLink still in use/running?

I believe you can use Terminal to remove the copy that is in /System/Library/Extensions/ But, instead of moving it to the correct location, I suggest getting a new copy and let the System install it. Download the new driver, if you don't still have the original download. The plan is to install it in the correct location so WC can use it to get the data the Console is collecting.

1. Double clicked on the installer
2. Weatherlink is still running

I don’t know if I can select where it’s installed but it’s a possibility😊

Thanks,

I don't think you can. It's the OS that does that when you double-click or control-click the installer. The OS keeps a list of what kind of file belongs to all apps, as well as the OS itself. You should also be getting a dialog asking if you want to install the driver for your account or all users. Are you seeing that kind of dialog? Are you set up as an Administrator on the mini?

Is the downloaded file on the mini or the iMac?
Are you sure you are using the installer on the mini?
Did you restart the mini after re-installing the driver?
Have you tried Quitting WC before you install the driver?
Did the driver get installed in /Library/Extensions/ on the mini or your iMac?

I do not get a dialog asking all users or just the admin.

I am set up as admin.

It is on the mini

Yes I am using the installer on the mini

Yes I restarted the mini

Yes I quit WC before installing the driver also quit Weatherlink.

It got installed on the mini.

Is it possible that WC 3.01 is not compatible with El Capitan?

This person is having the same problem, see post 2 on this thread:

Thanks for hanging in Xair.

Found the fix.

1. Uninstall WC 3.01

2. Install WC 2.44

Driver: Latest from SiLabsUSDDriver v. 5.05

Works like a charm.

That is possible. Im using WC 3.0.1 on macOS 10.13 High Sierra. I had to update to HS when my old mini died. I think I was using EC and I know it was WC 2.4. I continued with 2.4 for a while with HS, but Stu fixed some Apple-induced graphic problems in WC 3. I now have no way to test on anything less than HS.

Sorry I could not be of any help, but glad things are now working! [cheer]

I am assuming that the SiLabs 5.05 is now installed in the /Library/Extensions/ directory on the mini?

Again thank you for percervering 👍.

Yes it lives in Library/Extensions, NOT System/Library/Extensions on my Mini running 10.11.6.

After about a day in a half, after trying everything, I decided to go to WC 2.44. In minutes after set up, there was, finally... joy😃!

Thanks,
Cabut

I went back to 2.44 and it did not help my Comms problem.

Hi,

Sorry about that...

Did you remove 3.01 and any associated files first? I used an app called Clean App which removes all associated files. I believe you can download a free trial which will remove 10 apps before you have to pay. It may be a long shot, but I removed 3.01 first, using this method.

There is nothing you need to remove from 3.x other than the app itself. You want to keep the rest of the files so you have all your data when running a previous version of WC.
