He&#39;s right. Download.com only lists the newest version.

I know that Download.com only has the latest versions, but in this case I doubt.
When I checked and made a download from Download.com I got vers. 3.0. The name of the file was WxBugSetup30.exe, the file I got was from 2001, and I started to install it. It was Weather Bug vers. 3.0. I checked with their site and according to this site there is a new version, 5.0. As far as I can see vers. 5.0 is from Dec 2002. To get this new version I had to answer some questions and I stopped there.
It is probably only a matter of time before vers. 3.0 will not be available from Download.com.

The older versions of Weatherbug allowed more options. For one, you could open a radar view in a browser window. Now you&#39;re relegated to scrolling through. I&#39;ll email version 2.61 to the archive, but I&#39;d like version 3.0 that supports XP. Search your drive for "wxbugsetup" to see if you have one.

:ph34r: I found weatherbug 3.0 by surfing the web sites for school sponsered weatherbugs. They still use the older versions and when you download it helps the schools for donations.schools use this program all over the country. you might find one near you and email them to find out which one they use for download. (public schools) ;)

dont say you hate the program without any reason why you hate it, or atleast give what you believe to be a better app than it.
otherwise your post is a waste of space. very much why many people do not reply to guest users.

Is Weatherbug spyware??
It came on my new computer and I thought I uninstalled it but it still seems to be around although not used.
There is a window by my desk and I can look out B) and see if it is sunny or not and we have a nice indoor/outdoor thermometer that gives the temp&#33; :ph34r:
We dont download many programs or go to shady B) websites and do use a firewall so I think I am on top of spyware (Also have javascript disabled and REJECT cookies except when I want them-- Gotta LOVE that NETSCAPE browser&#33;&#33;)
whadda ya think?? spyware or not??
Chris :)

According to a few websites, it is NOT spyware. but appears to contain adware, and alot of people confuse them as being the same.

yes, having a monitoring station is nice. Some of those indoor/outdoor stations can be hooked up to a computer also. I use a few perl module to retrieve my weather from a METAR station - local airport, then it sends it to my mailing list, this way i can get a 10 day forecast in advance. This gives me the Air Pressure, Wind Speed, Humidity, Wind Chill, Clouds conditions. plus alot more data. and I run another script to give me the current temperature. I have this automatically everyday, so i dont have to go tracking down weather reports, or sitting through 1 1/2 hours of news just to catch a 5-day forcast.

You should have posted the thread you got these from so it could have been corrrected.
Also note that only programs on the main site, http://oldversion.com are hosted files, all links posted in the forum are on external sites, which Oldversion.com has no control over.

If you come across links in a thread that no longer works, please post that notice into that thread, not into the OldVersion.com board. As that board is for any links related to the main site & hosted files links, not for forum submitted links.
This thread will be moved from the oldversion.com board into the request board, as it pertains to links posted there.

i have updated the links due to this posting, so you should be able to find a working version now in the thread. If clicking on links does not work, be sure you right-click and select SAVE_AS

I love the convenience of Weatherbug but I&#39;ve also had a lot of bad luck using Weatherbug (which is FULL of spy/adware&#33;)
Luckily I found a free replacement called "Weather Watcher" that does the same things as weatherbug but minus the crap&#33; It&#39;s very customizable and doesn&#39;t seem to take up much space at all. I&#39;ll never use Weatherbug again&#33;

I guess you didn&#39;t bother to look at the other posts above. If you look at previous posts, you might find what you&#39;re looking for.

Program Name: WeatherBug
Website: http://www.weatherbug.com
Current version: 6.0
Desired versions: 2.xx
Description: I would appreciate it if somebody has a link to the early versions of this app. The current one has loads of spyware and you have to subscribe to it. Previous versions were clean as a whistle.

Glad you posted in the correct format. But you may have forgotten to search, so your post was merged. Hopefully some of the links are still valid, if not, just make note of it back in this thread.

Sorry for the bump, but I have a request...

Program Name: WeatherBug
Website: http://www.weatherbug.com
Current version: 6.0
Desired versions: 5.0x
Description: WeatherBug 6 is really bloated, I hate it. HUGE ads, while version 5.0 has small ads. Also, WxBug 5 uses less memory than 6.0 does, so it'll run a lot faster. :)

Thanks in advance. B)

weatherbug v5.02 1.5MB (http://www.datafilehost.com/download.php?file=d65ac334) download page ,no cookies,scripts,pics required however if you use weatherbug I guess the relevance is a moot point,enjoy.

I got a request via PM about WeatherBug 3.0. I believe that is this file though the file shows 2.7.0.0. When I started the installation it said 3.0, but they requested that
I filled in a formula, which I didnít. The file seems otherwise to be freeware.

The download link:
