I have been trying out the new S63 charts
in 3.3.1931. The charts
now seem to be working fine, however, I have had to stop using this beta as it keeps on loosing connection to my autopilot
instruments. Both of these are serial
devices and I use Belkin USB to Serial
converters. The PC is running Win 8.1 64 bit and is currently fully up to date. When I use 3.2.2 it is all OK, so it appears that the beta version does not handle windows serial ports
I have looked through this forum and found similar error messages that I get when I try and restart the serial port,
11:06:08 AM: Closing NMEA
11:06:08 AM: Stopping Secondary Thread
11:06:18 AM: Not Stopped after 10 sec.
11:06:18 AM: Opening NMEA
11:06:18 AM: Error, comm port open failure, INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE, Datastream skipped.
But this seems to be (?) related to bluetooth which I am not using. There is nothing in the log when the com port stops responding.
Sometimes after about 20mins of not working the beta version crashes (two crash reports have been sent today).
I have attached the current
log file which mainly contains the information from running the beta, but it also contains log info from 3.2.2
Is there any advice as to how to make the beta work better with the serial ports
