Australian o-charts file type .oeevc not working V5.0

I had Australian Charts purchased from 0-charts.org working on OpenCPN V4.8.8 using oesenc plugin V2.4
I upgraded to OpenCPN V5.0 and my charts didn't load. I installed oesenc plugin V3.2 as directed on the OpenCPN website, but on attempting a Database rebuild. They failed to be found.

I've done a little problem tracking and find in my logfile under V4.8.8 and Plugin V2.4, the chart rebuild searches for file extension *.oe* which then finds my charts with extension .oeevc and progresses the Chart Database Rebuild.

Under V5.0 and Plugin v3.2, the chart rebuild searches only for *.oesenc so my charts are not acceptable.

Why has this been done.. o-charts.org are still listed as valid Chart Source on the OpenCPN.org.

Any Assistance would be appreciated.

Re: Australian o-charts file type .oeevc not working V5.0

Looks like our last update, when preparing the oeSENC plug-in to co-exist with the upcoming oeRNC plug-in for raster cards, did forget about oeEVC as the Australian twins for oeSENC.
I just did rename some charts from .oeevc to .oesenc and they show-up after a rescan of the data.

If you are in a rush, you can try this "remedy" until we get it done right.

Thanks

Hubert

That's it Hubert,

From the CMD prompt I navigated to the folder in which I had the Charts. As in, the directory defined in the "Chart Files" tab of "Charts" under "Settings". Then did a DOS global rename: "ren *.oeevc *.oesenc"

Went back to the Chart Files tab and did a "force full database rebuild", followed by "Prepare all ENC charts", and my charts are back again.

Thanks.

Ron

"prepare all ENCs" is not required as the oeSENC charts come already in the OpenCPN SENC format.
This step is just for plain S-57 charts. Or S-63, which is an encoded transport format for S-57.

oeSENC version 3.3 is online for download and covers this issue.
PPAs have been updated too.

Re: Australian o-charts file type .oeevc not working V5.0

Thank you Hubert and team for providing AusEVC charts!

Unfortunately, I have just found I cannot download 2019-19 charts from within OCPN using the oesenc_pi-3.3.0-ov50-win32 plugin that did work for the 2019-18 charts.

Seems to be a mix-up with System ID.

Renate has recommended that I download from the URL in the email and that loads and works.

Has anybody else had this problem?

Will this be a problem at the next update?

How do we obtain updated charts after the subscription has run for one year?

(Our original purchase was date 2018-12-17)

And, how can we do this with minimal hassle?

Tx again Hubert!

Just buy a new license for the next year. Assign that set to the existing system and here you go.

The other issue is "under investigation"...
One of those that can't be reproduced that easily.
