    I downloaded the VBS script, but have no clue how to make Coolmon use it...can you explain the process a bit?

    i've attached a notepad file with details, but basically you insert lines into coolmon to tell it to read the weather file and display selected text.

    Your code for calling up the script should look something like this:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\wscript.exe "C:\Program Files\DaisyManSoftware\getweather.vbs"

    the best way to do this is to go to Coolmon's website and download the zip file for the weather script and follow it's instructions, you will have to modify the script for your zipcode or country code, AND the correct location on your hard drive where the script actually is (like my example above).

    The example above is actually the command in task sched. for running the script.

    Hope this helps
