The weather docklet stopped working about a week ago (end of August 2018). All I get is "Feed not available, try again later"
Sorry to hear you are having issues.
The Weather docket problem is a known issue nothing to report back to you at this time

The weather docklet is not working. "Feed not available." Is there an alternative weather docklet that can replace the accuweather one? If not, how do I fix the existing one?
There is no fix at this time.
You can check the ObjectDock gallery for others that might work.

If Stardock has decided not to renew because the apps that use it (DesktopX, ObjectDock, ObjectBar, Premium/MyColor widgets) are depreciated/not supported a pinned forum post would be nice.

Well, I really hate to say this, but it seems Stardock is putting way more effort into game development than into keeping OS customization current. I am becoming very, very disappointed.

I cannot blame them, there is more money in games, not to mention a far larger fan base for games
Have you ever thought about who is into customization? correct me if I am wrong but it seems to be people over 40, maybe even 50, its not a rule, there are younger people but generally speaking I think millennials are content with the default Windows 10 GUI, at least they are not interested in learning how to skin apps like windowblinds. Older skinners won't be around forever so unless something changes and more young people start skinning, OS customization's days are numbered. People will disagree with what I am saying but I know of 3 customization sites that have shut down in the last couple years and I can name even more customization programs that have ceased to exist within the last 5 years.
I know of sites shutting down too JC, and I am definitely one of those older skinners..
I think it would really help if Stardock advertised their games and OS Customization software more on the Internet, and even on television. It would definitely pick things up!

Actually StarDock does have commercials if you consider YouTube as a media channel for advertising. Do a search for any product and there's a video for it.
Stardock already stated in another thread about this that "There are no imminent releases pending for ObjectDock at this time." Therefore, it probably won't ever be fixed.
If they sell it it has to work or money back please.
Any update, Its only one docklet that does not work.
To be clear, this is not an issue with ObjectDock or any other weather widget; nothing needs to be fixed in OD. This is an issue with a service that Stardock subscribes to for accuweather.com.

Then how do we get them to fix it?
>>This is an issue with a service that Stardock subscribes to for weather.com.
That being the case can anyone state what the issue is?
AccWeather still works here, via desktop widget, however I dislike that and prefer the 'Docklet' that comes with Objectdock.
I have the problem that it cant see the internet/for location, nothing has changed network wise this end.
It is obvious that this issue affects a number of people and all happened around the End of Aug.
Note: to mod/support can we get all the threads merged so only one to update. Please don’t close/lock them either.
As stated in other threads this is not necessarily a ‘OBJECTDOCK’ problem. Its more off a Docklet/weather problem. I get that you trying to be helpful, there are other threads what I asked is for a grouping of posts, and I would now suggest that some official response from Stardock along with that grouping, I see AzDude, trying to be helpful.
But I think your possibly right that this is not going to be fixed anytime soon.
Ive even tried loading the Docklet in an editor, Ive tried replacing the dll’s/ocx to no avail, we need a guru to step up and fix it. See support treads going back years for dll’s/ocx sssssssss……….
I don’t see that ALL the errors are the same having looked at other threads about this but one thing that is the same is this Docklet is well borked.
My problem is it cant see the internet to update its self, what problems have you all got with it.
A shame we can't subscribe to the service ourselves...this was a very useful feature.
So what's the actual problem? Is it money with it being to costly. Or just plain lack of interest in fixing a few lines of code?
Not even a few lines of code, it is a simple API key change if they go with the same weather provider.It seems like Stardock has lost interest in Objectdock so I doubt there will be updates of any kind.
So, just a few lines of code - officially we call that a quick fix and no real amount of cost for the dev team - so, SD, how about it?
There is a cost involved, API License keys are not free, although there may be alternatives other than purchasing a license from one of the big weather providers.
