Well since everything I have did so far seems stable for me on my system here the release is a few days earlier than planned...

Release Notes:

Minimize to tray and copy data to the clipboard has been added. Finally, a few tweaks were made and a couple minor bugs fixed.

Let me know of any bugs you might find and such... :)

Is it with individual station's? If so...
Which station's are you trying if it is certain stations? I did notice where some station's doesn't have the correct data if any data at all for them.

As its still working for my stations which includes...

KTRI  BRISTOL / JOHNSON / KINGSPORT, TRI-CITY REGIONAL AIRPORT, TN
KCRP  CORPUS CHRISTI, CORPUS CHRISTI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, TX
KCMI UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS - WILLARD, IL
KBKF  BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE AIRPORT, CO

If other then what do I need to look at...

Sorry, I mean it won't download the list of stations at all.  I have it marked in firewall to allow.  It puts "An error occu" in the State dropdown.

Seem's like its a problem with the NWS Station List ATM which is out of my control unless I can figure out a workaround to make the xml parser skip errors.

Code: Text [Select]
  1. XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
  2. Line Number 13534, Column 61:
  3.                 <station_name>ALABAMA RIVER AT CLAIBORNE LOCK & DAM NEAR MONROEVILLE</station_name>
  4. --------------------------------------------------------------^

You may need to delete states.txt in the cache folder before you check to see if it is fixed.

Meanwhile...if you know the station id...

You can create a file in the main directory of WSW called stations.xml.

And inside it here is what mine looks like...

Code: Text [Select]
  1. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
  2. <WeatherStationWarlock>
  3.   <FileFormatVersion>1</FileFormatVersion>
  4.   <Stations>
  5.     <Station id="KTRI" name="Tri-Cities Airport" />
  6.     <Station id="KCRP" name="Corpus Christi International Airport" />
  7.     <Station id="KCMI" name="Champaign / Urbana, University of Illinois-Willard" />
  8.     <Station id="KBKF" name="Buckley AFB/Aurora" />
  9.   </Stations>
  10. </WeatherStationWarlock>

Change station id to the id of yours...

One workaround to find the station id atm is...

Goto weather.gov enter your location to find your local forecast...then on the page that comes up look under Current Conditions at and find the id...

If I know a station name or ID or URL of RSS or XML, is there any way to bypass this list?

By the way delete cache folder files inside the Weather Station Warlock folder and it should be ok next time you load the station finder.  Appears the NWS has fixed their issue a few days ago. :)

Updated to 1.0.0 build 1 with a few fixes as listed.  If you got the error with previous version be sure to go into the cache folder and delete states.txt file as well.

1. Added a user agent for when the feed gets downloaded to fix download forbidden as the national weather service has started requiring a user agent to prevent an error 403 forbidden on requests it appears.
2. In turn by adding a user agent it is now downloaded slightly different.

Please update to the latest version as previous versions will no longer work the way it appears (download link in first post).

Thanks! :)
