As of 2017-01-25, my sWeather isn't updating and it's interesting that the header says Thursday, January 1, 0:00 it's gone back all the way to 2015. Interesting. I'll give reinstallation a shot

Welcome to 2017!

I am having intermittent problems as other have stated: sWeather goes "blank" at times, reporting NO DATA for all locations (even Codyville!). I have found that a few refresh attempts restores the data. As I have no working knowledge of the Yahoo API, I am wondering if the call out (polling) to Yahoo is persistent enough to insure connection. Hey, it's only a weather program (and a fine one too), but it's just a thought.

Many thanks for the effort.

Hi: Windows 10 Pro, version 1.6.1 works for a minute then crashes to null reading.  :huh:

v1.5.4 - 2014-12-15
    + Added 'Feels like' temp to the tray tooltip.  (Thanks, Ken Z.)
    ! Hopefully fixed a long-standing bug with the temperature icon not
      displaying the correct temperature.  This had to do with the fact that
      Windows 7, at least, does not appear to like 1-bit colour icons in the
      tray.  Crazy...

Very cool. Because I am a bit dense (and new), is there a way to update sWeather without unzipping the file again to its directory?

 :Thmbsup: Based on the recommendation in GHacker, I have installed sWeather. I agree that for a low footprint/high content application your software is hard to beat. Count me in for a donation after I futz around with it awhile. Many thanks -- all of my former "go to" weather applications got smashed when their RSS feeds were changed or became too costly. If you have a Beta program, sign me up.
