Unhappy Andreas Falke WDE 1.1 and 1.2 problems

Dear Friends, this is my first post ever. Sorry for possible mistakes. Fact is that I have been using with satisfaction and successfully WDE (1.1 I suppose) to add cities to my HD for a while. Then I (stupidly) tryied to upgrade to the latest version (1.2) and it started malfunctioning. Cities that were not in the original list, but edited using WDE 1.2 showed insignificant data, no temperature values and no wheater condition of the moment. Exausting manouvers suggested here and there on the web to solve the problem proved to be unsuccessful, even trying to change the 2330cfg_manila properties in win. Uninstall is also very difficult unless a .cab from a german site is previously installed: WeatherDatabaseEditor_1_1_Meins.cab (1,22 MB, 5939x aufgerufen). Is anybody out there able to give me some hints to finally solve such a annoying problem? I'd really appreciate it!
