'new' 6.5.2 HughesNet Status Meter isn't working in Win10.
'new' 6.5.2 HughesNet Status Meter isn't working in Win10. The old one worked fine. Now with the new, I see the major headings, but no detailed information. the entire box is just blank. When I click on the major headings, 'loading' appears, then stops, but NO information is seen. Blank. There is no way to buy more tokens, as nothing shows up. I have reinstalled this twice, with the same results. Thanks for the help.
The "new" meter does not work for Vista either. I am angry when I get emails from Hughesnet offering free token when purchasing two...but ONLY for those special people who have the "new meter". I find this very offensive as I usually run out of the stingy 10 gig allowance a few days before the end of the month. I have NEVER streamed a movie, or even been able to view YouTube or other videos without sacrificing what little bandwidth I am allowed. I even stopped updating Windows updates last year. I hate Hughesnet, but I have no other choice where I live.
This version, 6.5.2, works just fine on my Wife's log-in on our desktop computer, but only works once on my log-in. The difference is that my Desktop is set to 125% and hers is set to 150%. Could this be a "resolution" problem?
Restarting the computer and with font sizes at '150%' , the HughesNet Status Meter appears as it should with all functionality including the 'buy 2 get 1 free' token offer. Changing it back to 125% shows the HughesNet Status Meter blank.
I don't consider this a resolution to the resolution issue, but it looks like for the time being I will need to switch back and forth to get any benefit from the HughesNet Status Meter. While I wouldn't mind some things being 150% bigger, I dont really like the font sizes at 150%.
Thanks for sharing. I think this should give HughesNet a solid direction at which to explore this issue, if they choose to even look at it seriously.
Hey, I am glad that my "weird" situation at least temporarily helped. I hesitated to chime in because it did seem strange. Thanks, foxbrook, having that link helps me to understand the "possible" cause, I have been scratching my head on this for several days - thanks.
No, mine is a 64 bit system. I don't have any issue with the "old" meter, except I get upset when I get emails from Hughesnet offering free token with purchase of 2, but ONLY for those with the "new" meter...which won't install/work. I jumped through all the hoops to try to install the new one...but since I see nothing impressive about it anyway, I went back to the old one. If it aint broke, don't fix it. I wish Hughesnet would get that mindset. LOL. Take car BirdDog. I appreciate your assistance, as usual.
My experience is similar to that of bwbalint: I click on the Hughesnet meter and the little circle goes around and around, as if it is loading, and then it simply quits. Nothing happens. I get no box or anything promised by this app. I had a chat with your on-line people, but she was confused and not helpful.
Did you check the rest of the thread? Folks found that adjusting the resolution/zoom in your Win10 settings made the Status Meter display properly. Another working suggestion, from piddledink: "setting the "compatibility" of the Status Meter's Shortcut to run as "Windows 8" and it seems to work, for now at least. Give the Compatibility settings a try before giving up."
Hope that helps!
