This is portable software, and thus shouldn't be installed in Program Files or other protected directories.

What ATH said.

As a general rule, if you ever download a "portable" app -- one that does not have a setup installer but just relies on you to put it somewhere yourself, you need to put it in some directory of your own creation not inside any of the "system" folders like Users\ or "C:\Program Files".

Many of us have created a directory like "C:\PortableApps" or "C:\Programs" for putting portable files in.

First I had the sWeather directory in C:\Program Files (x86) which is privileged-theinfinitypoint (August 14, 2018, 04:51 AM)

As Ath and mouser mentioned, and as you found out, you should run portable apps in a non-UAC folder.  However, if you still want to run sWeather in a UAC folder, you can run it with administrator rights and it should work fine.

sWeather is unable to establish a connection to the weather server. N/A showing everywhere. Have tried with and without https mode. Has been working fine for a couple of years now.
Was there another change to the Yahoo API?
v1.7.5 build 1 in use.

Cheers

https://www.yahoo.com/news/weather has no weather data so it may not be an API issue.

Hello, dhry and march12234, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   :)

From what I can tell, the Yahoo! Weather API was down for a bit, but appears to be working for me at this time.  If this happens again, go here and click the test button: https://developer.yahoo.com/weather/
If the query comes back with "null," you know the problem is not with sWeather.   :Thmbsup:
