Apple weather widget not updating

I would really like to know for sure, if that was it, but I'm not sure reviewing those updates will tell ME anything.

Anyway, I just wanted to throw this out there, to see if any of you think MS has changed the gadget coding to correct that?

apple weather widget not updating-84

To test that hypothesis, I used a date/time stamper utility to change the date to April of 2016. I am happy to report the widget has continued to display current temperature for the entire week, not just two days.

This fix seems to work as long as the file and folder exists.

[It's the only gadget I'm using.]I sure hope that will continue to work for me, because I like this weather gadget.

The weather gadgets stopped working on all of our Win 7 computers about the middle of January this year. But I can say with certainty that the time stamp on that config file is the key to making it work again.

The content of the post essentially stated that you need to open a XML file and simply re-save it: C:\Users\\App Data\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\Services\Cache\I tested it myself, and when I reopened the widget, it soon reappeared with the current temperature.
