    Problems setting weather location in 4.3?

    It seems that my location is not being saved when in the setup screen for the weather on the latest build.

    Steps:
    1. Go into Settings->weather->location
    2. Enter various combinations (city, state, zip, all, just 1, etc...)
    3. Hit enter (Get a quick 'loading' box), then save.
    4. Location text field is still blank. And when I access the weather module it says "No weather location found..."

    Any chance this is stored in some text file (i.e. xml)? Just as workaround, I would like to set this value manually.

    I'm actually hoping this is user error vs. a bug...

    I have just tested and made sure this works... After you search you should get a dialog with your results... You then should hit OK and then it should be populated in in the weather location list row... Then you hit save, overwrite settings....

    When you say "search", I'm not sure what you mean. I'll assume that after you enter (for example) a zip code, it uses your internet connection to get the appropriate details.

    In my case the location field always ends up being blank.

    I'll chaulk this up to me screwing up my install. (I didn't completely uninstall 4.2 before installing 4.3) After (finally) reading the release notes, I uninstalled 4.3, then uninstalled 4.2. I probably hosed something up that way. User error, but hopefully there may be some useful info on your end.

    BTW, excellent product. I'm very impressed with the quality/functionality.

    After going through the Uninstall in 4.2, you have to manually delete the old CF folder, THEN you can install 4.3. If you don't delete the folder, you'll run into some interesting problems with the UI.
