Re: Serial port problem

And another place to look is the Com port settings of the device that Davis communicates through.
In device manager for the COM port, my settings are:
Bites per second: 19200 (this is set in the Davis console)
data bits: 8
Parity: None
Stop Bits: 1
Flow control: None
This appears to work OK for me

Re: v3.28.1 bulid 3278

Hmm interesting. After having another go at applying the latest update all appears to have gone smoothly this time around. That said, I did give the Winblows (oh, did I say that I meant Windows) a bit of TLC, sfc found a few things and fixed them it told me. All appears well. Again, thanks to the ge...

Ah yes sir, that was it.

Re: Charts Compiler

I was running it manually to see if I get the file. C:\CumulusMX\utils\bin\cumulusutils.exe UserAskedData Is it set to only run at a certain time? Or is it a background thing that runs and then when I run utils with switch it uploads it? Or something else? I should have look at the logs, anything in...

Re: Charts Compiler

If you think it useful let me know what needs to be changed in the example CutilsCharts.def (on the other hand it made you study) made changes in the file example to get it to run out of box. Removed the separate output file entries to have it all output to the one file for ease of testing. But goo...

Re: Cumulus utils post 6.8.3 failing on Windows computer

Hi Hans, Thanks for the reply. I figured it out thanks to your insightful prodding :D Your comment of "at the command level that Windows can't find certain libraries" got me thinking. I had always run from the cumulusMX directory C:\CumulusMX\cumulusutils.exe, since it didn't seem to run o...
