UPDATE: May, 2015
The method defined in this post is now not working any more. [at the beginning it was working but not anymore] , I will see if alternate methods may work and will update this post in coming week, to see if its working … Insha Allah,
From past few days, clients reported that Weather gadget stopped working with error “cannot connect to service …”
After doing some googling, it was revealed that dueto some security concerns Microsoft have discontinued it. BUT you can still Enable by following simple steps.
- Go to “C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\Services\Cache”
- Edit “Config.xml” by Right Click / EDIT
- Now donot change any thing & simply save it (CTRL+S or FILE -> Save) [without doing any modification]
- After 1-2 MINUTES, Restart the Gadget!
It will work Insha Allah !!!!
