Board update
Effective April 12, 2021, we had to delete about 8000 frivolous spammer accounts going back over a year. There was no way for us to locate all legitimate user applications, so some may have been deleted. If you are an actual user who created an account since March 2020 but did not get approved, please register again. You can also contact us via the Contact link on the main Weather Graphics webpage to get assistance. When you contact us, it is essential you provide brief but detailed info on your meteorological background or inform us of any previous order you've made, this way we can tell you are a legit user, otherwise we will assume it is a spammer trying to bypass the application checks. Thanks. -Tim

Update problem

Post by malcolmn »

Hi
I've just updated by downloading v2-09 Pro. It appeared to install okay but now the problems start probably because I'm doing something stupid.
Retrieving data from the internet seems to be okay as requested but at the end there is an error message 'file cannot be found' and obviously the data isn't there. I'm not actually sure of the origin of the sparse data that is plotted.
Also importing a file appears okay but the it refuses to draw the surface pressure. There are one two other things but the ones I've mentioned seem so fundamental that I have a feeling I'm doing something stupid. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

Regards

Malcolm

Try downloading the update again, there may have been a file that became corrupted the first time.

Malcolm,
Sorry, I meant what weather data were you trying to download and plot.

Sorry Chris misread that. Most of the stuff listed in the data retrieval window apart from some of the cyclone and hurricane boxes. Much as I do now with the Vi1. 1j3 version which has worked fine for years. Or do you want specifics? What is puzzling me slightly is that during the downlod process everything looks fine but obviously it's not going to a file. Not drawing the surface chart is another matter but actually is irrelevant until this is sorted.
