Old PC with Windows XP works just fine.  Have all the 3rd pary protection I need.  Do not want to buy a new computer just for AcuRite PC Connect.  Is there a download for Windows XP?

YES - please advise where you found it PLEASE as Acurite isnt being very supportive in providing a link to ITS CUSTOMERS! I had some old RC gear tht I needed an old version for & the customer support guy at Castle was very kind and gave me a dropbox link to the old version - GREAT support & with them I will continue to buy products, Acurite not so much!

Hello Alrui,

This is an old post that would have been on the Acu-Link platform when it was supported by Windows XP. The new My AcuRite does not support Windows XP so there is no download. Thank you. Enjoy your day!

Fully aware, dont care about the new "MyAcurite" I have that solved using my SmartHub as I stated - I want to grab the data coming off of my PC Connect console for use with another weather uploader...again as I stated.

I have an XP version of the software released. Windows don't support XP anymore, and neither do, so I get help from Windows Tech Support which is really helpful to me.

Hello Darren,

Microsoft has stopped supporting XP.  Without them sending updates to the software any longer, our software will not work properly.  We do apologize for the inconvenience.  Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you and have a great day!

can someone provide a mirror for the old version of software that runs on windows vista? Given that the weather station needs to be always plugged into a computer running the software, this is a perfect use for my old Windows Vista laptop. would be great if you could provide. I bought your product after all.

Hello Ben H,

The software that we provide for the product is not compatible with Windows Vista. Any versions that were compatible were on our old system Acu-Link which will be retired at the end of September so that software is not available. Thank you. Enjoy your day!

Fortunately I found a copy of the XP compatible version of Acu-Link on another machine though Im not sure it wa the LAST version compatible w/XP. That said if anyone wants it contact me and I can upload it to your dropbox account or something since customer support isnt willing to do anything for its customers!

I apologize for all of the emails. We cleaned up older, non-active and non-valid forum threads yesterday. We do this every so often to keep the forum easier to use and search and maintain accurate data.
