I really like this widget and all of the other ones in its series, but it seems like I keep having problems with them. I first downloaded it in the object form and had some kind of problem that I cannot remember. I downloaded this one and it worked for a while, but now it is messed up. Whenever I load it, the moon or sun is up higher than where it should be, and when I put it into compact mode, part of the box from the detailed mode is showing. I don't know what is wrong because I re-downloaded it and it still would not work. Please help!

Everything has been working fine with this Widget, but I see what you are talking about. Tonight the moon looks like it shifted up and to the left about an inch. Does anyone have an answer for this one?

I did some looking around and deleted the "LookingGlass Weather Suite - UltraLite Edition Widget.exe" folder in:
C:\Documents and Settings\YOURNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Stardock\DesktopX\WidgetCache
When I loaded the Widget again everything was back to normal. Not sure why it changed. Maybe the cache was corrupt. If that does not help then delete the "lookingglass.cfg" in:
C:\Documents and Settings\YOURNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Stardock\DesktopX and setup it up again.

Thanks a bunch Starman! That did the trick. I tried looking, too, but obviously not in the right place.

All is right with the widget once again.

Yep, that did the trick. Now let's hope that it does not have the same problem again.

Fantastic Widget, Looks so Kewl on my desktop
Is there any chance of adding an "Update Now" button to it, so that for ppl like me that arnt allways connected to the net can update when we actually connect to the net, rather than having to wait the 20 mins ??? , i hope u know what i mean
Keep up the Good Work!.....

Same with all the versions. I cannot change the zip. Luckly I have one that works great. Not sure if its older or his. It just says weather. Looks like the same but WORKS. Just tested the old one and works super..

Just now came across this widget. Weather reporters are a dime a dozen but I've never seen one that includes a radar screen. Wow! For the gadget freaks this is definitely a must have toy/tool. Unfortunately, it won't start raining around here for another 5 months so I've set the configuration for another part of the country in order to watch the green blotches. This is really one of the sharpest things I have seen in a while.

Who reads the newspaper anymore? We have the Internet. Who listens to the weather report on the advertised clogged radio? We have the Internet. And now there is no longer any reason to tune in for the visuals of dopler radar on the evening news. We have this killer widget! Fantastic job.

Is there a chance you will update your widget/objects to work as there has been a change during this summer? I hope so because these are the BEST weather 'programs' I've seen (ever) for desttopx. Thanks, Battlehorse

I have some problems with zip codes. I write Moscow, Russia or RSXX0063 but there are no chandes in weather and location. All widgets about weather don't understend zip codes, and renew weather only by words MOSCOW, RUSSIA. But this widget automaticaly changes city's name to zip code. What can i do to solve this problem?
Comment #31 Friday, January 06, 2006 1:05 PM
ok, this will never work, but I'm goign to ask for help here. I love this widget! But I've been moved behind a proxy server and now I cannot get the updates on the weather, the radar works, but I can't seem to get the Zip code to change, I've tried delete and reinstall and everything. any suggestions. I even tried to edit the script to have my zip as default, no work there either

How do you like it?

FYI, the version of LookingGlass Ultra-Lite that this was exported from hasn't been uploaded yet, but will be within a couple of days. The currently available UltraLite is an older version.

I'm having the same problem. I'm sure it's something in a .cfg file somewhere, just don't know where.

This didn't start until after I had used the minize (just the temp & sun/moon) feature. Prior to that the Moon was always within the frame.

This is the best weather widget I could find! Thanks.......
Allthough I changed the temperature to Celcius (I am in Europe) the weather comments on the icons is still in Fahrenheit. Only the comments/forecast, the temp under the daily icons is Celsius again. Is there a way to change the Fahrenheit in the daily forecasts in Celsius?

Furthermore I would love the implementation of satellite images for Europe......

Sorry, I have it installed, I just don't have it running full tilt (Desktop X). The widget works just fine - would just like to see what the better quality looks like Perhaps I'll fire up DX and run the object.

This widget won't run if you don't have DX installed. It was not built with DX Pro, and only DXPro can export widgets as standalone EXE files. The normal version (which I imagine most of the widgets on this site were built with) builds EXEs that require DX to be installed, although not running.

I don't run objects since I don't run desktop x, but I do like what folks have done with widgets. I'm not familiar with the export process but would be willing to give that a shot and see what happens...
