Desktop Weather

Help

Monday, October 28, 2013 by RedneckDude | Discussion: DesktopX

I know DesktopX is legacy but I was wondering if anyone out there who writes scripts could help with making a new template, with some weather feed other than Weather.com?

 

I'd be more than happy to help in any way possible.

I didn't mean for this to be in support, if a mod would like to move it, please do.

Prog being legacy has reason,seeking for help/developing of it is preposterous . Does it  has any matter/meaning that asking people to write proggies just for Win98??

DesktopX works on windows 8.1 Gaspershooters. It is not preposterous. A lot of people use weather widgets.

Uvah

BTW, Gaspershooters, I'm asking a user to help, not Stardock. For the record. I don't expect a lot of interest. This is a support thread, for now. A reminder...

Saw the other thread. I've been on Win7 until recently. I looked into the Wundergroind problem but couldn't pinpoint the issue. Gadgets and widgets needed to be run on compatibility/admin. Seemed to work after some tweaking, but when running weather in DXBuilder, no go.

I had been working on a Google Weather alternative a year ago, which worked well, 4-day forecast, etc. Loaded it up recently and found Google had finally terminated the feed.

 I think this ship has sailed, but if I find differently, I'll let you know.
