    I've noticed that the new version of WW 5.6.48 appears to require explicit entry of proxy settings instead of following IE as a default. After I upgraded from 5.6.45 WW wouldn't update. Filling in the settings (exactly as they appeared in IE) fixed the problem. Is this intentional, or is there something I missed in the setup configuration? Many programs have a check box to follow IE, but I don't see it here. I travel and use my PC in multiple environments with different proxy's. Having to change the settings in 2 places each time I switch networks, will be a bit of a pain.

    Thanks.

    That change was intentional, but I didn't mean for it to become a new barrier. When the Weather Watcher proxy settings are blank, I'll see if I can pull them from the Internet Explorer settings. If that works out, I'll add a checkbox to always use the current Internet Explorer proxy settings.

    The Weather Watcher build below contains a new "Auto-detect proxy settings for this network" box in the proxy settings. This addition should help you get around your multiple proxy issue.

    I couldn’t agree more. The recent versions of Weather Watcher all have this problem and it appeared to me a little bit of a menace. Anyway, glad to see Mike himself sorting out the way through the link. Now I can update Weather Watcher to the more recent ones without having to tackle all that proxy settings of Facebook Analytics . Anyway, I’ve heard that a new weather watcher build is out now with much improved proxy tweaks and bug fixes. Looking forward to see the version of it!

    naphayes00, I don't. The current version of Weather Watcher Live also includes the above changes. If interested, you can download it from www.SingersCreations.com.
