Loaded and working. But seemed a slower this time. Could be my machine. Didn't help when i found the "Do you want to backup screen" hidden behind another. Wondered why it was taking so long. Old age eh!! Very popular but I wouldn't recommend it.

Thank you for your work on this Team, I will report back when it has been running for awhile .

Best wishes

Mike

Hi Stu.

Downloaded and running. Funny thing the download screen hid itself from Mike, It did not do a auto backup when I installed the new version, first time that's happened.

Thanks again for all your work.

JC

Howdy Stu, Mike, JC, and WeatherCat fans,  [cat]

I installed the latest new and shiny release of da' Cat and all is working perfectly well.   [bounce]  I gave in to Randall's advice and even rebooted.  Didn't run into any unusual slowness or backup surprises.  I'm no longer having WeatherCat make a backup of my database when installing a new official release like this since WeatherCat now has its own backup manager.  However, it did ask and did the right thing when I declined the backup.

All working fine after about 90 minutes

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Just copy the WeatherCat folder (Re: WeatherCat Version 1.1.4)

Hi Matt and WeatherCat fans,

What's the most efficient way to install upgrades?

Golly, WeatherCat is like most modern Mac application.  All you need to do is replace your old WeatherCat folder with the latest one.  If you are a bit cautious you can put the old WeatherCat folder in the trash and then put the new folder in your Applications folder and then launch the new version to make sure all is working properly.

I don't think there is anything else to it.

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

P.S. Most of us old-timers just replace the folder and go.  That's how good Stu's software is!  [tup]

Thanks, Edouard,

Replacing the folder of course replaces any web templates too. I just have to be careful about that.

Hi matt
 When I down load a new version of WeatherCat and quit WeatherCat, I open the folder that is all ready running WeatherCat on my machine which is in my application folder that WC is in, then i copy each item from the new downloaded folder one at at time and it will ask if i wanted to replace it and then I say yes
But this really shouldn't have an effect on your web templates unless you have them in the same folder which it really shouldn't be
Hope this helps
 [cheers1]

As Edouard noted, I drag the new folder to the Applications folder. It tells me there's already a WeatherCat folder, and would I like to replace it. I answer yes, and then relaunch WeatherCat.

Your custom templates really should not be in the Application folder. That's not good Mac file structure. Your Documents folder is a good spot, or somewhere else it won't get deleted. I keep mine in ~/Sites/WeatherCat/ because the Sites folder is where I have all of my other web sites located and have my FTP application pointing by default.

Your realtimegaugesWC.txt file has not been processed - it still contains all the WC tags rather than data.

Also looking at the page the CSS file may also be missing?

Hi Rasarisi
Looks like all of your readings on the gauges are the same as at WU
