Par,

Could you make Yowindow a menubar application only?

Eg: Remove the Icon on the Dock.

Also if people are using the PWS override could make yowindow stop saying "weather expired".

I keep on getting this after my mac has gone to sleep yet my Weather data from the PWS is still updating fine.

Thanks


Tim

Yes, we want to do this.

Ah... a long time problem, hope to fix it soon.

Very nice program! Thanks for making a Mac version.
Sadly, I can't use the screensaver: The program crashes when I select "Set YoWindow as ScreenSaver", and attempting to activate it through System Preferences yields a "Can't load bundle" error message (I'm running OS 10.5.8).

Oh, and could you please add Cape Canaveral/Kennedy Space Center to the list of Florida locations?

(BTW Par, I celebrated my 13th birthday in Saint-Petersburg, back in '76 when it had a different name!)

Hey, Chris, and welcome! :)

Try to uninstall YoWindow completely and then install back the latest build from this page
http://yowindow.com/mac_beta.html
Please let me know the results - if screen-saver is working.



Thanks for the kind words!
Yes, Saint-Petersburg was called Leningrad (in the name of Lenin) until the Soviet era was over.
And by the way, I was born a year after you have visited our beautiful city :))

I will try to add Kennedy Space Center shortly.
If you want more locations, request them on the forum Ikarus has pointed to.

Well, the Uninstaller gave a "Quit Unexpectedly" error, so I tried just deleting the application, and then deleting the YoWindow folder from Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support, then emptying the Trash.
When I ran the new install, it came up with all the settings intact, so apparently I failed to catch everything. So, of course I got the same result when I tried to set the Screensaver.

Yeah, it was a 3-city tour (Moscow, Kiev, & Leningrad) with my Dad's old schoolmates, but my Dad was working, so my stepmother took me instead.
It was in March, so it was butt-freezing cold, but it was fitting to visit the Hermitage then, seeing as how it was the Winter Palace of Catherine the Great! Just wish I could go back, and spend more than a couple of hours there.

Will do, and thanks again!

Chris, please try to wipe our YoWindow by following the steps below.
And then install the latest build.
Please let me know if the screen-saver problem persists.

1. Delete /Applications/YoWindow.app
2. Delete /Library/Application Support/YoWindow
3. Delete /Screen Savers/YoWindow.saver
4. Delete /Users/[your user name]/Library/Application Support/YoWindow
Where [your user name] is your login name on Mac OS.
Example: /Users/bill/Library/Application Support/YoWindow

If you to notice anything suspicious while deleting the files, please let me know.


Thanks for a short story about a visit to Hermitage :)
You better come here in the end of Spring, beginning of Summer - the famous White Nights season.

Got the same result, but this time I copied the text from the Crash Report and emailed it to you.
Hope that helps!
