I'm getting the same error.
OK, I downloaded the raob57demo.exe from and it's different from the raob57demo.exe file at

After uninstalling the Weather Graphics RAOB 5.7 and installing the demo from, the demo works.

There seems to be an old (bad) copy of the Demo still around. Please use the latest Demo from this site... ... as it is updated monthly. Sorry about the prior problems and please let me know of any future problems.

The RAOB Demo link has changed and is now here >

And remember, the Demo file changes monthly in order to reflect recent software updates. Also note that the Demos expire after 30 days.

In case the Demo link again changes in the future, you can always find the Demo link from the RAOB website >

I am glad to see all the interest in the RAOB Demo program. And as always, the "current" Demo works just fine. The "current" RAOB Demo can always be found here >

Please note that those who experienced problems with the Demo have been using "old" and "outdated" demo files. Unlike most Demo programs, the RAOB Demo files are updated monthly -- and the old ones expire. This is done for 2 reasons: (1) to keep the software fresh with the latest updates, and (2) for security reasons.

And, if someone does have a problem or issue with the Demo or any RAOB product, you will receive a prompt reply by directly contacting me at "". And thanks to you and all others who have contacted me, because your inputs are the driving factor in the growing success of RAOB.
