For me everything seems fine EXCEPT I noticed the icons in the lower right (for linking to the yahoo website) no longer appear.

Good eye.   ;)

Website & Download
v1.7.9 - 2019-01-28
    ! Statusbar icons were missing.  (Thanks, Mboxer511)


Everything looks great now! Haven't come across any issues on Windows 8.1. Works just like it did before the change in the API.

On tip I wanted to mention is if anyone is updating the software, if you save the files "config.ini" and "locations.lst" then all your settings will carry over to the new update. So just make a back up of those files, then use them to overwrite the new ones when you install an updated version.

Uploaded v1.7.8:

Website & Download
v1.7.8
   + New metric windspeed option to use meters per second instead of the kilometers per hour default.  (Thanks, BG)
    * Rearranged the Options dialog a bit.
    ! Hopefully made the menu and button icons work properly in both Windows XP and Windows 7+.  32-bit colour must be enabled in your Windows display options.  (Thanks, Drugwash)
    ! Fixed the titlebar not always displaying the time.  (Thanks, Drugwash)


@Drugwash, let me know if this fixes the icon display issue, please.

I've set up this newest version of your app on windows 8.1.  For me everything seems fine EXCEPT I noticed the icons in the lower right (for linking to the yahoo website) no longer appear. Please refer to the screen shots

You can always find the latest version on the sWeather website: http://www.dcmembers...e/download/sweather/

Is 1.7.7 up on the website now for download? I just checked and it's still showing 1.7.6.

Nevermind I fixed the time issue not appearing in 12 hour format in the title bar.  Had to change the "Date/time format" from:
dddd, MMMM d, H:mm tt
TO
dddd, MMMM d, h:mm tt

It originally had an uppercase 'H' which denotes 24 hour time and needed to be changed to a lowercase 'h'

forecast not working

http://www.dcmembers...Weather_v1.7.6.2.zip

Please try that build and let me know if the forecast works.  Thank you.

Yup, version 1.7.6.2 worked! Forecast and time are now appearing. I also disabled "use https:// (SSL) when possible" just to be safe.
The time of day, in the top of the window, is now shown in 24 hour time (not sunrise/sunset, that is working). Is there a way to revert it back to the 12 hour time format?

Included a screen shot of the new version with settings:

I'm having an issue with the time not displaying correctly and the forecast not working. Not sure if this is a known issue? This is running on Windows 8.1 with your newest version of the software. I completely removed my files of the old program and restarted this new program after saving the new settings. I included a screen shot of what I'm seeing and the settings I chose.

I haven't heard back from Yahoo! so I sent them another email.   :-\

I found another weather program called "YoWindow" and noticed they seem to utilize the National Weather Service. Would that be an option to use for your app as an alternative to Yahoo? I also found these other API's which might be able to help:

If I understood correctly you mentioned there is a possibility that we could get our own individual API for free that we could use with your software? If that is the case could you explain how we could go about doing that? I would have no problem applying for an individual API and using it with your software so I could get it working again on my computer.
