Yes, this was a fresh install of Python:

C:\Python27>python
Python 2.7.6 (default, Nov 10 2013, 19:24:18) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win
32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

Following your instructions, steps 1-3 went flawlessly.  The error popped up in step 4.

 

I did edit the weatherservice-config.py file,  but the path was not the same as your page indicated.  I found it here:

 

c:\DreamScreenWeatherApp\instance\weatherservice-config.py

 

I thought that was odd, but just assumed it was a small omission in your write up.

 

I did attemp to start the service, but got errors there too:

 

C:\Python27>python -m DreamScreenWeatherApp.service
2014-05-28 10:58:31,473 root         INFO:DreamScreen Weather App service startu

-------------------

 

The paths "C:\python27\var"  and "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages" do not exist.  😞

paulgraz,  you are correct, there is an omission in my instructions, which I've now corrected.

 

The errors look to be related to the directory where the service is being started.

 

Can you try to run the service from the C:\DreamScreenWeatherApp  directory.  

 

In fact, the installation should have created a file called 'start_service.bat' in that directory.

That worked! 

 

I got the "Verified: OK" !  Now I'll move on to installing the Acryllic DNS and let you know how I get on from there...

 

THANKS! :generic:

I followed the rest of your steps, no errors.

 

I found an older post where you mentioned this:

 

"If you want to see the actual weather data use http://localhost/getLiveWeatherRSS.aspx. the page will take a few seconds and show a bit of gibberish. Don't worry. Right click on the page and View Source. There you will see formatted xml <aww> tagged data that widescreen recognizes!"

 

That works!  So I know my new "weather server" is working. 

 

Background info:

Windows PC running python/acryllic/etc:  192.168.1.2

DreamScreen 1:   192.168.1.48

DreamScreen 2:   192.168.1.49

 

When I set DS1 to use 192.168.1.2 as it's DNS, it seems to have no internet access at all.  pandora, HP radio, weather - all do not work.

When I set DS2 to use 192.168.1.1 as it's DNS (my router), everything works except weather.

 

I can ping all 3 of these devices from another PC on the network just fine tho.

 

It's like Acryllic isn't working.   So I think a bit - scratch my head - think a bit more - and then it hits me:  Windows Firewall!   I disabled Windows Firewall, and lo and behold - I've got weather! 

 

Thanks again for all your support.  I've got a non-techie friend with a DS and he's been waiting patiently for me to get this working, now I can go visit him and share the goodness...  🙂

Great detective work figuring out the firewall issue. As I read your post that didn't even cross my mind! I will add to my wiki to disable the windows firewall.

Your friend will be thrilled when his DS is back online!

Hello, thanks for the response. Is there any way you can help me with this? These instructions look a little complicated for me. How do I get to the command prompt? And what do I do after that. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

joro71, I encourage you to read up on Windows basics before tackling this project.  Google is the best resource for you to quickly get information, and of course, Microsoft website.  Without fundamentals of Windows, such as the Command Prompt, under your belt, this project will move very slowly.
