Maps in .25

I think I’ve made a mistake updating to this version. I’m having trouble upgrading and retaining my maps.

Hey, EdP, what happened to the weather.com maps? They seem to have disappeared from the map store.

In fact, I seem to crash whenever I try adding a new map. The map entry form for custom maps seems very cumbersome. I must force any new map into one of the predefined categories. What’s the recommended way of filling out the three fields when you have a custom link? Do you use the http:// or not?

Later…

Well, I’ve tried .25L, and it’s no better. I’m now TOTALLY confused among the options, and probably have porked my registry. I’ve tried “by user” and the old “in WW directory” options. I’ve started WW with a “-i” shortcut. No joy.

Still later…

I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled 25L. I still can’t get the defaults out of the registry and into INIfiles. I still can’t add a map from other than the supplied store, and am getting stalls and crashes when I try.

Suggestions? This is XPSP2 with no previous font trouble, on which .24 was operating smoothly. It’s USEnglish, and no UTF is involved. I’m tempted to go back, despite the snazzy new maps.

EdP, are your skins still operable? They’re showing up in my skin picker still. (I use your Classic, and thanks.) How would one add a map from a saved mapfile, such as

“[United States/Northeast-NYC] NYC Large”,“http://image.weather.com/web/radar/us_nyc_ultraradar_large_usen.jpg
“[United States/Northeast-NYC] NYC Close”,“http://image.weather.com/web/radar/us_nyc_closeradar_large_usen.jpg

I’d be satisfied with keeping everything under category “world,” for simplicity, if I could just get new entries to take.

They are here on my system. They are identified with the letters TWC.

That is incorrect. You can enter any name you want, I recommend “@Mine”.

@Mine,name of city,URL. As for the http:// or not, highlight any existing map then click on the Edit button. You will find many examples that way. :wink:

When you use a -i switch you start with a default config and have to enter whatever changes you want manually. The switch is not for backing up your WW Registry entries.

Yes

I think the following would work;

[code]United States/Northeast-NYC
NYC Large
http://image.weather.com/web/radar/us_nyc_ultraradar_large_usen.jpg

United States/Northeast-NYC
NYC Close
http://image.weather.com/web/radar/us_nyc_closeradar_large_usen.jpg[/code]

You could also replace the “United States/Northeast-NYC” string with “@Mine”.

Ed,

OK, I’m much less excited now. I uninstalled again, did a registry clean, and now the map dialogue is working as intended, I think. At least I can select, add, and edit map entries. I think I’m home, but your help was, as usual, priceless.

I have no idea what happened, but this installation had had about five full-version overwrite updates, so it was about time. Pingponging aimlessly among per-user, registry, and app-dir instances almost certainly didn’t help, either (g). I had New York and Northeast spelled four ways each.

TWC is the Weather Channel (don’t watch it), and not Time-Warner (g)? Somebody bought somebody?

@mine/!mine is a great tip, to sort to the top.

The new maps are sure purty, and they zoom. May as well use that Java, right?

If -i doesn’t save out your settings, what’s the recommended procedure?

Your syntax worked to add my drab old maps, thanks, thanks, thanks.

No, TWC is The Weather Channel

Nice CMDfile, but I get zero output. On a copy of the results, moved from the desktop:

The registry looks normal. Here’s a sample key…

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

As you can imagine, this is not a pressing need, since Regedit suffices.

:shock: :???:

It would seem that the RegEdit cmd is failing but I could be wrong.

Replace the top line of the .cmd script with this line:@echo on&title Weather Watcher settings backup&mode CON Lines=250 Cols=70
rerun the script and post what the Command window shows please.

Belatedly…

The result is the same whether the backup folder tree exists or not - an empty destination tree. Here’s a clip from the cmd window:

========

C:\Program Files\Weather Watcher>echo.

:-k

Open a Command Prompt window and enter this:

REGEDIT /E "C:\Documents and Settings\Frank Haber\DESKTOP\WWBackup\WWsettings.REG " "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VB and VBA Program Settings\Weather Watcher "

and let me know the results please.

  1. Zero output. I tried with and without the empty folder’s being present on the desktop. I tried from a start menu run prompt, too - same old.

The key tree exported successfully from a regedit window, via the GUI. I’m an admin on XP SP2 Pro - don’t know whether I’d mentioned this.

Really don’t need to see all your WW data. :wink:

So when you ran the command from the Command Prompt there were no error msgs that displayed!! :-s Interesting.

:-k Try running this from the CP window.[code]Open a Command Prompt window and enter this:

REGEDIT /E “C:\Documents and Settings\Frank Haber\DESKTOP\WWBackup\WWsettings.REG” “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VB and VBA Program Settings\Weather Watcher”[/code]

The difference between the two commands, this one doesn’t have a space at the end of the file name and key. And I think the space is cause the problem.

I will try to adjust the code in the posting to see if I can get the forum sw to not add a space to the end of those two lines.

Really don’t need to see all your WW data

I wouldn’t want to be accused of sketchiness (g). And now I have an online backup (runs, ducks).

And I think the space is cause the problem

Bingo. If the folder exists on the desktop, the command window will write to it. If it does not, I get a “cannot create … filesystem” error box.

The command file, run from the GUI, however, will NOT. It uses env-vars, sans trailing whitespace. What the deuce is going on, do you think?

And when the desktop directory has files, the CMDfile gives the “already present” message, but does not delete the file in \PRIOR. The filestamps are not changed. Hence, I guess, it’s failed. Same deal whether or not WW is running.

Something peculiar about writing to the desktop, perhaps? About writing to a very long path?

:-s What does “run from the GUI” that mean?

Shouldn’t be. A very similar version of this script has been backing up Comodo settings for numerous people for months.

You can backup to something other than the desktop by changing the BKUPfolder variable to wherever you’d like the backup to be. I use set BKUPfolder=D:\My Documents\WWBackup\.

Make sure none of your set lines wrap. They should all be single lines. The same holds true for all echo and if lines.

Lets see what I can do without the code tags.

[size=2]@echo off&title Weather Watcher settings backup
:: Modified version of the COMODO firewall backup script
set BKUPfolder=%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Documents and Settings%USERNAME%\DESKTOP\WWBackup\

set REGkey=HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VB and VBA Program Settings\Weather Watcher
set BKUPfile=WWsettings.REG

if not “%1” == “” set BKUPfolder=%1
if not “%2” == “” set BKUPfolder=%1 %2
if not “%3” == “” set BKUPfolder=%1 %2 %3

cls
echo.
echo *****************************
echo The Weather Watcher settings will be backed up to:
echo “%BKUPfolder%%BKUPfile%”
if exist “%BKUPfolder%%BKUPfile%” for %%i in ("%BKUPfolder%%BKUPfile%") do echo Date/time of last backup: %%~ti
echo.
echo To Restore the “%BKUPfile%” file’s settings back into the Registry dbl click on it.
echo.
echo NOTE: When restoring, you need to shutdown Weather Watcher.
echo You may also need to reboot the PC!
echo *****************************
echo.
echo To start press Enter. To quit press the “x” button on this window
pause >nul

cls
if not exist “%BKUPfolder%%BKUPfile%” goto :new
goto :archive

:archive
echo Clearing oldest backup - please wait …
del “%BKUPfolder%Prior%BKUPfile%” >nul
echo Storing previous backup - please wait …
copy “%BKUPfolder%%BKUPfile%” “%BKUPfolder%Prior%BKUPfile%” > nul
echo Archiving current rule set - please wait …
REGEDIT /E “%BKUPfolder%%BKUPfile%” “%REGkey%”
goto :end

:new
cls
echo.
echo Creating folders - please wait …
echo.
md “%BKUPfolder%”
md “%BKUPfolder%Prior”
echo Archiving registry keys - please wait …
REGEDIT /E “%BKUPfolder%%BKUPfile%” “%REGkey%”
copy “%BKUPfolder%%BKUPfile%” “%BKUPfolder%Prior%BKUPfile%” >nul
goto :end

:end
echo.
echo DONE!!!
echo.
echo Press any key to end
pause >nul [/size]

This is what it should look like.
