Did I miss where it was discussed how to avoid this popping up? If my computer restarts for whatever reason this prevents BI tools from starting which prevents BI from starting. Thanks

I'll take a shot at this - there was previous discussion in this thread about 'RunAsService' - during setup you need to specify an Admin account. Thats one way. Another way is to use Task Schedule and set an Admin account - that too should bypass the security check. Finally,Did I miss where it was discussed how to avoid this popping up?

FWIW, you're on the "Blue Iris Tools" thread, it's software written by @Mike to augment and work with Blue Iris, the VMS solution.
on my brand new install - BIT can not connect to weather underground. worked perfectly before.. clues?
entered my api key - nada...
just entering location.. nada..
its like it cant get on the web.
That's the way WU is and we can either put up with it or go elsewhere.Same
FWIW, I've been on 1.6.0 quite some time, ever since its release.I haven't had any major problem either since 1.6.0 addressed the API change that wunderground made that broke Blue Iris Tools back in January of 2020. Also double check that you are using 1.6.0 and you didn't grab an old version elsewhere because it won't work.
It's my own PWS (Ambient Weather WS-2902C) and it's up and working OK with Ambient Weather when WU fails. At that point BIT keeps trying to upload to WU and BIT says it can't talk with WU....Obviously also, double check that the weather station that you are trying to use hasn't gone offline.
Ambient Weather works great. Dump WU it’s always been unreliable.I guess I'm figuring out some more as I get at it. I just deleted my old api key that I had from weatherunderground and just tried a few local stations, and now it's updating the weather, and its back on my cameras video.
At one time WU gave out for free api keys if you signed up a few years back, and BIT took it and it worked.
Now WU makes you pay for the key, so the free ones are voided now, I guess.
If you are on 1.6.0, then you should be fine as it has been the newest version since January of 2020. The "new version is available" popup thing has been a known issue. There isn't a newer version than 1.6.0 and hasn't been for a long time. Everyone that has been annoyed by that message coming up just disables "Check for updates daily + install automatically" on the Options tab so that doesn't come up.you know I try to see if BIT would update itself.It says I am on version 1.60. I installed it from a link here a couple of days ago
it says new version is available, then when it goes and tries to receive the update,
I get an error, that the website has an old TLS security key and cant connect.
now, Im also trying to get the api key for ipcam ddns, so I can use my express VPN. I cant seem to retrieve it, to enter it.
Oh, the fun of setting up a new system with a ton of stuff needing installs is crazy.
On wunderground, yes I've been trying different local stations.
Very true..My experience with WU was picking a solid station was important.
What kind of script..Python? care to share?Basically - I pull the values I need with a script on a 30 minute schedule and store it into a text file. then I have BITS overlay that text file. Hope this helps someone!
Love to share - and nothing so complicated - Since the driver exists in Hubitat as a Device - it's simple to look at the current device and see all the value key pairs - thats were I created the screen cap above in white.Very true..
In my case however, my weather was going out to Ambient OK and to WU OK but when BIT tried to talk with WU to retrieve it, the 2 couldn't communicate.
