I’m using WW 5.6.22 and the severe weather balloon stopped working. I still get the pop sound when there’s an alert, but no balloon. I have uninstalled, manually cleaned the registry of all WW entries and reinstalled. I have also used msconfig to stop all applications from starting (loading) except WW-still no balloon.
I have a laptop sitting right next to my desktop and WW works just fine on the laptop. All options are the same.
Oops, I think I answered my own question. Balloons were disabled, presumably by another program, so I went to the registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced and deleted: EnableBalloonTips=dword:00000000.
Now everything seems to be working properly.
Hats off to you Mr. Singer, for some great software!
“Presumably”!! What other options are there?
Considering you knew where to look in the Registry…
Good to hear you got the problem resolved and thanks for sharing with us the solution. :thumbright:
