Anyone else having the problem or know of a fix? Is it something in windows?
It worked fine for me all summer under XP 32-bit SP3, OpenCPN
version 3.2.2. I get a lot of AIS
alarms on our busy river.
One possibility might be that the dialog is appearing at x,y coordinates that are outside your screen
size. Look inside opencpn
.ini with a text editor. Look specifically at these values:
Your values may be different, but they should be non-negative values, and within the pixel size of your monitor
. If they are not, you can manually edit them to more reasonable values.
