Changing SENC directory location

I have three copies of OpenCPN on a microSD card for use in portable mode. Rather than keep three sets of SENC files, I would like to have one consolidated directory for all three instances to use.

I tried modifying the .ini file:

Quote:
[Directories]
S57DataLocation=
SENCFileLocation=E:\\Sailboat\\NOAA Nautical Charts\\SENC
...but whenever I launch OpenCPN it deletes this entry.

What am I doing wrong?

RhythmDoctor...

Not your fault, that's a bug.

I can always count on you to explore the nether reaches of OCPN functionality.

OK, thanks for checking. Let me know when/if you get it fixed. Meanwhile I'll keep multiple copies of the folder.

When you do get it fixed, is there any reason why I should not consolidate this folder? Does it create problems having two instances of OpenCPN reading (and occasionally writing) in the same folder?
