Shouldn't the installer do this??? Now the install is broken for all new users.

The correct download location is:
c:/Users/<username>/AppData/Local/Temp/qtVlmMaps.zip

So I have the program running with the maps now. Press "Down Arrow" a few times and now the display shows like below. All view commands are broken except "Show Entire Map" which takes me back to a working display.

Re: Free Routing Software. qtVlm

The new version seems to work OK for me on Linux. I just compiled in the downloaded trunk directory. Next I moved the binary to my old install directory, renaming the old binary first.

Yellow route using grib only. Blue route with added German current grib.
The blue route is nominally 35 min faster!!
Nice feature! Thank you!

Re: Free Routing Software. qtVlm

The recent kap file display feature, seems to be dependent on the presences of polynomial coefficients i the kap header.
Any plans to display kap charts without polynomial coefficients?

Re: Free Routing Software. qtVlm

Ah... of course... NO polynominals... I should have known why none of MY .kap charts are displaying,just a beige square....

I have a great number of .bsb/.kap maps but none of them work?
All are installed in the qtVlm/maps directory.

Re: Free Routing Software. qtVlm

We will see what we can do with this permission issue. We tested it a lot... but not enough as it seems We'll try to fix this asap.

Yes the kap needs polynomials to work. And yes there is a plan to allow for kaps without polynomials.

Re: Free Routing Software. qtVlm

Phillippe..

I must admit I haven´t a clue what polynominals are,only they do not exist in ANY of my 100´ds of charts,even in the official US .bsb charts.

Trouble is,even the previous world map does not exist any more?

I did a route optimizing at random and copied to OpenCPN and it appears I am crossing Southern England and running far into France. What happened to the land avoidance facility?

Sorry this new release seem to have so many problems..

Re: Free Routing Software. qtVlm

Thomas..

What do charts containing polynominals in the header look like?
I have a great variety of .bsb/.kap charts but NONE of them displays in qtVlm?

I attach the headers of three typical maps..

Re: Free Routing Software. qtVlm

Phillippe..

OK,I managed at last using only the BRAZILIAN charts,but they load up with the wrong
zoom value and has to be manually zoomed in to the correct level. The same with the NOAA CHARTS. There must be a way to specify a ´1:1 zoom value´ as a default download.

I exported the Recife-Fernando do Norhona optimized route as a .kml to OruxMaps which worked perfectly.

I was also able to run qtVlm with the new map and weather display from my Android Galaxy S II smartphone using TeamViewer.

Hope you will soon be able to load non-polynominal charts which are the majority of my charts.

Thanks for the new version..

Re: Free Routing Software. qtVlm

Due to too many problems with the new qtVlm automatic (lol) installator we have decided to revert to the good old way for installing qtVlm on windows.

So I have remove the installator, and instead you will find 2 zip files containing all necessary files and dlls, including the maps. Just donwload 64bits or 32bits zip file according to your hardware and unzip it somewhere qtVlm will have write permisson granted (i.e. NOT in c:\program files).

We will find a better solution for the installator later

I tested again and no apparent problem here. Can you send me the polar you tried at maitai <at> virtual-winds.com please?

Good stuff...was wondering with the new URL given its asks me for authorization...user account and password. Did you run into that problem. I dont have an account anymore on sourceforge and it requests credentials with svn.

Best and thanks

Re: Free Routing Software. qtVlm

We have reviewed our Windows setup procedure and this time it should be ok (we always say that ). But since we want to be a little more careful this time, we didn't release it yet. Volonteers can find it here for test purposes:

http://www.virtual-winds.com/~oxygen...tup-3.3-0+.exe

Please let us know if this time it installs flawlessly.
