I cannot for the life of me get the weather to work. I've done this before. I used 2 separate codes for the weather and nothing seems to work.

Greetings from the future!

Alphabar 1.0 was created way back in 2009 and elements that rely on external/web services (weather/twitter etc.) will need to be updated in order for them to function again.

Personally I've not used Rainmeter in many years but anyone who knows Rainmeter well should be able to make the necessary changes without any issue. As such, I'd recommend asking on the Rainmeter forums for help if you're still interested.

Cheers!

Yo, just a heads up, within the readme packaged in your .rar file containing this rainmeter theme, it says to unpack the skins folder into:
...\My Documents\Rainmeter\

This is only true for people running Windows XP, for Windows Vista, and Windows 7, you must unpack the skins folder into:
X:\Users\(YourUserName)\Appdata\Roaming\Rainmeter\Themes

You might wanna include that in future releases :)
But other than that, great rainmeter suite!
