It looks as if MX can't connect to your weather station. If you open a browser tab and go to http://127.0.0.1:8998/ this will bring up the web gui with the settings page for your weather station. If you and your browser are not on the computer that MX is running on then you will need to replace 127.0.0.1 with the IP address of the computer that MX is running on.

Got error message stating cannot connect to 127.0.01:8998 Connection refused.
I might add I am currently using the v1.9.4 version of Cumulus, that runs on port 9, that works great, but since support is not longer available for it, I thought I would try the MX Version. I have the Serial Version of the Davis Advantage Pro II. I can't configure the MX Version because I can't open it, and I copied my Cumulus.ini to the Cumulusmx folder. Thank You

Two ideas:
1 Have you followed the instructions to make CumulusMX use the port 9 as previously instead of the default 8998?
2. Are you running CumulusMX as Administrator as described here:

Running Cumulus MX:

Cumulus MX needs to run as an administrator on Windows and under Superuser (root) on Linux and OS X. Make sure your station is connected to the device on which you have installed Cumulus MX, before you try to run Cumulus MX.

Windows:
Either right click on CumulusMX.exe and click 'Run as administrator', or open an administrator command prompt (right click on Command Prompt and click 'Run as administrator'), change to the Cumulus MX directory, and then type CumulusMX and enter. You will probably need to accept a security prompt the first time you run it, to allow it act as a web server. You can avoid having to run it as an administrator by running the following command once from an administrator command window:
CODE: SELECT ALL
netsh http add urlacl url=http://*:8998/ user=\users
This command allows all users to bind to port 8998 (used for the Cumulus interface). Note that if you change the interface port as described below, you should change the 8998 to whatever port you are using. Note that while this allows Cumulus MX to run and act as a web server, there may be other operations which require it to run as an administrator
