OpenCPN not recognising CM93 charts

Hi,
I have installed OpenCPN 3.2.2 into a Windows Vista laptop. It opens up okay and displays the base charts just fine. I have a CM93 directory which I've installed on the "C" drive. It has 3 sub-folders CM93 Part 1, CM93 Part 2 and CM93 Part 3.
The Part 3 folder has similar sub-folders as the other but has additional sub-folders viz A, C, CM93, ROUTES and Z.
I have gone to the toolbox and clicked on the options (wrench symbol) and added the CM93 directory. But OpenCPN doesn't recognise it.
Have also tried loading the sub-directories (Part 1, 2 etc) but this doesn't work either.
Can anyone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Re: OpenCPN not recognising CM93 charts

The CM93 V2 file structure is explained here -> Installing Charts | Official OpenCPN Homepage .
You may have to merge your three directories, depending on the content.
Your opencpn.log file will tell what OpenCPN thinks about your CM93 installation. Need more details? Read the manual that is included in your OpenCPN installation.

Re: OpenCPN not recognising CM93 charts

I'm most grateful for that. Found out that by moving all the sub-folders from the Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 into the top directory folder of CM93 that it works perfectly.

Thanks again and best wishes.
