Discussion and questions about Cumulus weather station software version 1. This section and its subforums are the main place to get help with Cumulus. Anything which is not specific to the type of weather station goes in here; for anything specific to a type of weather station, please use the appropriate subforum. Use the 'website development' section for any questions relating to creating or running a web site for Cumulus data. Discussion of the stations themselves in these sections is fine.

Cumulus b1099 Patch

Post by mcrossley » Sun 06 Oct 2019 10:39 pm

I have created a patched version of Cumulus 1 build 1099 that allows the NOAA Reports and Snow Index dialogs to be used up to the year 2030.

Note: I do not have the source for this program so the patch is just the existing executable with the dialog resources edited to allow the extra years.

This is a "drop in" replacement for the existing executable. You need to have already installed Cumulus using the standard setup installer.
Make sure Cumulus is not running, then rename Cumulus.exe to something like Cumulus.exe.sav, and copy in the new patched version from the Downloads page in the Wiki.

The patched version will still show as "build 1099" in the web tags, as "10991" in the program version, and"1099.1" in the file version.

Hi Mark,

Thank you very much for this change. Although I rarely access NOAA data via the netbook the change will ensure Cumulus 1 will continue to function for another 10 years. I just need the same patch for me please! :lol:
Cheers,
Ray, Cheshire.

Thanks Mark.
I have installed the patch and all seems to be fine. Shows as version 10991 and pull-down menus to 2030.

I installed this patch and it was working fine...Then 3 times I saw that Cumulus had stopped.
The last time the patched cumulus.exe was completely gone. I checked and saw Malwarebytes had
3 times blocked the patched cumulus.exe and identified it as ransomeware. Not sure whether or not that is valid
but I've gone back to the original cumulus.exe file. This was on Windows 10 Pro 32-bit. Malwarebytes latest version.
This may be a false alert by Malwarebytes but I thought I would pass this info along.

I have submitted the downloaded patched cumulus.exe file at the Malwarebytes forum.

Verified as false detection and will be fixed.
