Have a look underneath the "Quick Reply" window you are typing your replies into. There is a button called "Go advanced". Takes you to a reply screen with a "Manage attacements" button.

Re: Can't load OpenCpn

Got it, but I tried to change the name and it would not let me. Now if i try to upload it they say it is invalid, so how do I change the name?

Make a copy of opencpn.log on your desktop, rename it opencpn.log.doc, and upload it.

Re: Can't load OpenCpn

The best thing is to open the copy and remove all sessions except the last one few ones.

Each session will start with

Date: ------- Starting OpenCPN -------

You can delete a bunch of the ones at the start until you get down to < 400k
We are usually just interested in the ones at the end of the file.

Re: Can't load OpenCpn

So it's pretty obvious that it's not finding the charts, right?

Go back to the Settings / Chart tab, clear out your Active charts, select the proper CM93 location and add that to Active charts.

Re: Can't load OpenCpn

Hooligan...

Somehow your cm93 chart tree has been corrupted. You are missing two files from the "CM93 Charts" directory:

CM93ATTR.DIC and CM93OBJ.DIC

Maybe you need to reinstall cm93, or find these two files elsewhere.

Re: Can't load OpenCpn

I will reinstall cm93. Should I uninstall the old cm93 first?

Re: Can't load OpenCpn

Now I can't open Opencpn. When I do everything locks up, nothing works.

Hooligan....

Find and delete opencpn.conf. No need to reinstall OpenCPN.
