I am not sure where to post this , so if its in the wrong place hopefully a Mod will put it where it needs to be , then let me know where it was put

 

I have the adin18_Double Weather Calender Gadget version 1   , it keeps forgetting my Zip Code  , every or almost every day it has a pop-up that says the Zip Code is not valid , then it has some strange Zip Code , and you have to re-enter your correct Zip Code  , its like it forgets what it was or does not save it properly  , it does this randomly , sometimes several times in 1 day

 

Any idea's how i can remedy this ?    Thanks    Jim

I would contact Adni18 about it.

You can send him a private message from here:  http://www.wincustomize.com/users/2663/adni18

 

Or you can catch him here: http://desktop-art.info/forum/   or also here, at his own site: http://www.adni18.com/

Thank you Jim (RND) for the message!

Dear JimDirt I am not sure for which gadget you are talking about, but doesn't matter, try to put the gadget inside a folder and then put the folder on the top level of your Hard disk C. All weather gadgets are creating a "weather.ini" file that it is needed to remember your preferences, don't delete this file.

Let me know if this solved your problem

I did a search for Double Weather Calender Gadget and came up with 0 results

 

I did a "Search" for any file with your name  adni18  and came up with 4 results , and none of them were a "ini" file

 

ADNI18 LIVE WEATHER III.EXE     C:\Windows\Prefetch  40kb PF file

adni18 Live Weather III.exe         C:\Documents and Settings \Local Settings\Temp    650kb Application

adni18 Double Weather Calender Gadget    C:\Documents and Settings\Start Menu\Programs\Start Up   2kb Shortcut

adni18 Double Weather Calender Gadget\Local Setting\Application Data\Stardock\DesktopX\Gadget Cache   File Folder

 

The bottom one is a folder , but I could not find a ini file in any of it

Hi Jim,

Find first the "adni18_Double Weather-Calendar.exe" put it in a folder and then run it. Make your cities choices and close it with right click on it.

You will find now the "weather.ini" in the above folder. Your choices will no be forgoten as long the weather.ini file exist next to .exe file.

Seems to work fine on the C drive. There was an .ini file in the folder it made when I unzipped it. Had my zip code in it.

I looked everywhere and i cant find   adni18_Double Weather-Calendar.exe  , only the 4 files i mentioned  (yes i have Show Hidden Files checked), i also looked in Add and Remove Programs  and i dont see anything there either  , i am confused now  , the only things i can find on my PC pertaining to the program are the 4 files i mentioned  , i went to this folder "adni18 Double Weather Calender Gadget\Local Setting\Application Data\Stardock\DesktopX\Gadget Cache   File Folder" , and took the .exe and made a folder in the main C folder and double clicked it , and all it did was come up with the "not a valid zip code" prompt  , so i cant even uninstall it to reinstall it

 

Now What ???

@JimDirt

There is no installation for the gadgets, you just run them, therefore there is no need to uninstall anything.

Go to my site re-download the weather gadget and do what I told you above OK?

This is happening once in a month or so, when the weather server is "restarting" or have a quick maintenance for their cache, not a big problem
