I would like to say thank you for all your work over the years. This must have started as a passion project for you and turned into what it is now.

The problem is "free". It's been that way so long that people "expect it". I've been having this same discussion in UseNet groups about posting and expectations. Specifically, saying thank you.

When something is "free" for so long, it becomes a question of expectation of entitlement. Well that's not the case. The amount of time you have put in, and now the people bitching must make you feel that you have a chain and weight around your neck. I've been there on similar projects.

I've contribute to "free" projects when I can (limited funds), and I you CHOOSE to continue, then I'll do the same.  I hope that you do, but remember, you have no obligation to do so. All that I ask is if you do kill it, post the fact so we might know.

In the meantime, THANK YOU, for all your efforts.

Ditto from me. You said it so eloquently. I have nothing to add except for a personal THANK YOU for sharing your wonderful work with others for free. Keep up your great work and please keep me informed of your updates. All the best. Mal

Oh, I get it. I thought I need the 'add' option to add a location. I went to the 'Lookup' option and typed in a city and it automatically listed all the cities in the world with this name and then selected it and don't even need the 'add' option.

No worries, I can see how you the interface would be a bit confusing.  I'll find some time to integrate an add button.
I searched online how to use it and found some sites mentioning an "add" option above "edit". Because this option was missing, I mistakenly assumed that it doesn't work on my computer. But now everything is working fine and it's really a beautiful program. Thank you very much and good luck.

^ not sure if it has changed,
but it's under:
menu: Options >Configure [F3]
Whom are you responding to?

sorry if not clear, the '^' meant I was responding to previous post, i.e. to you.
Once you've opened the configure dialogue, as skwire says:
"do a search, and double-click the location you want to add"

Hi, Mal, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.

I downloaded the latest edition of SWeather.zip v1.6.5 build 1 but it doesn't have the "add" option.

The "add" what option?  If you mean adding a new location, do a search, and double-click the location you want to add.
Thank you.

Yes, adding a location. The only options I see is Edit, Delete, Up, Down.

I'm working on Window 7 64 bit. Would that be a problem?
