    Okay, we are on RTM, MSDN/Technet release, couple months away from General Availability.
    Where's the port of the awesome Weather app from Developer Preview with live background (.avi video looping)?


    Anyone still running Developer Preview and/or has the .iso handy for a quick virtual machine.
    I need the Weather App folder located in:

    %ProgramFiles%\Applications\microsoft.weather_1.0.0.26_neutral_neutral_8wekyb3d8bbwe
    (
    You may require permission change/ownership to reach this folder and also have to check the show hidden files, folders to see the hidden ‘Application’ folder)

    Sadly I deleted all the "obsolete" .iso's of previous Windows 8 Previews I had around to save space and only kept RTM.
    It would take me a couple days to re-download DP over my poor connection so anyone with some free time, willing to help me would be greatly appreciated.

    Weather App is part of RTM and live tile work fine. I have just noticed that an update is also available for Weather App in Store :eek:

    I'm sorry, did you read the entire post? I'll give you the bullet points:
    1. Developer Preview
    2. Weather App from Developer Preview.
    3. AVI VIDEO looping on the background inside the app.
    4. VIDEO inside the app. I never mentioned Live TILE.

    I can only assume that the looping AVI you keep mentioning is not possible from the RTM version, if no one has ported the DP version, maybe the onus is on you to do the leg work.

    You talk about it like you've never seen/heard of it before. I don't see why it would work on DP but not on RTM, probably I'm the only one who found that version of Weather really cool so I guess it's on my to do the porting.

    Nice way of being a smart-a** to someone who was kind enough to try to answer what he thought you might want.

    I apologize if that came out the wrong way, I've been in a bad mood lately, even if that's no excuse.

    I just couldn't understand how "I want weather from DP with video background" came off as "Where's weather on RTM?"
    I even felt a little shocked he thought I couldn't find a 3 inches baby-blue square with Weather slapped on it.

    Most people don't run the DP or CP or RC or anything other than RTM. Some do, but not all. Meaning the advice giving pool might be limited in that regards. I personally don't use them because too much can change and I only need to learn enough about Windows 8 to support my employee's who will be showing up in two months with new 8Phones and craplets that I'll have to make play nice with the domain.

    You have Developer Preview available? That's great. I don't know what you mean by step 3 and 4. Do you need help showing hidden files or taking ownership of the folder?

    All I need you to do in .zip that folder and upload it to any file-host of your liking.

    If you need any help, ask me.
