In msvc++ open file opencpn.sln if I understand the question correctly. You can edit the file by cat mentions inside msvc++ I believe.

Now, that is impressive support.

I happen to agree that a single degree should be "good enough", but it's nice you had a solution for a somewhat specialized situation.

Where can I find opencpn.sln?

Re: Chart Bearing Accuracy

Mike...
Please, really, take the time to read Compiling - Windows | Official OpenCPN Homepage and figure out at least the basics. Without that you will not get far...

Re: Chart Bearing Accuracy

Mike, Pavel is right about reading that link. ESSENTIAL

Perhaps also look at Development Environment thread for Windows Development Debugging Environment - Setup Help
where Dave and Pavel helped setup a Windows compiling environment. These are extensive notes about the process, and those notes & experience were used by Pavel to hone the thread he just gave you.

After you have cloned opencpn to your local repository successfully, you will need to create a build directory and run CMAKE from that directory (see the exact notes for this process in the link), then you will find opencpn.sln in the build directory.

However follow Pavel's thread carefully for the ENTIRE SETUP.... or nothing will work correctly.

Thank you Rick , I have followed this all the way through "getting the source for the first time". Thank you for your help I am embarking on quite the journey with this and im glad to have your help. I will continue following the thread tomorrow evening. Is there anything you may recommend before I continue?

Re: Chart Bearing Accuracy

Mike it is difficult to setup, but do each step. However it is worthwhile in the end. Will try to help. Pavel is a master and a great teacher. He's very patient, but insists that people read!!!!
