Default How to change the URL for htc accuweather?

Hi,
since a few days the weather app in the rom is unable to retrieve any data. I have read that htc may have changed the url and that you should change it in the registry. But i can not find any url values for the weather app in my registry. Can you help me fix the problem? Sorry for my bad english!!

Do you know what the new URL is? I'll see what I can find to change it.

Hi Nube,

I had the same problem. The URL had been changed. In another forum I found a solution that solved it.
You need to add the following key to your registry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HTC\Manila\Weather.Serv erURLOverride=h.t. t.p.://htc.accuweather.com/widget/htc/forecast-data_v3.asp?ac=TR2cra9U&locCode=%25ls

Of course without the dots in h.t.t.p. (the website does not allow me to post outside links.

The URL is : h.t.t.p://htc.accuweather.com/widget/htc/forecast-data_v3.asp?ac=TR2cra9U&locCode=%25ls

same as above: without the points between h.t.t.p!

I already tried to write the key in the registry in HKCU\Software\HTC\Manila but it still doesnt work.

THX for your help!

Hi Nube

I had added the key with Mobile Registry Editor (freeware). In the registry this looks as in the attached screenshot. You will have to reboot the device before it can download data from Accuweather.

Thank you for your help! I'm planning on creating a CAB file to install the changes, but I cannot find my WinCE Cabmanager installer anywhere. When I find it, I'll get something posted.

I've attempted making the changes listed above, but they don't seem to work on this ROM. If I run into something else that works, I'll try to create a CAB for it.
