Russian Charts and Vista

I have a copy of the charts only at this stage but not the program to run them.
Can the program be run on Vista instead of XP.

well known amongst Cruisers almost everyone has a copy also known as cm93. I used OPEN cpn and it worked, I now have free charts of the world.

So the translation is that you have bootleg copies of the CM93 format charts, and you needed to know if "the program" called OPENcpn would run under Vista so you could use them.

Didn't get a copy? Past tense? Why, have the bootlegs been pulled offline?

It's like whack-a-mole, you can find bootlegs of almost anything if you try hard enough, and you want to go that way. Consdering the way that bootlegs are often intentionally infected with malware...I wouldn't be surprised if someone posted bootlegs with a few chart depths diddled. That would be easy enough to do. Thnk about that, next time you're running a shoal with them. Why infect someone's computer, when you can wreck their boat? ;-)
