I am new to OpenCPN
and installed this on an old Vista machine so I am working on the learning
I installed the Chart Downloader plugin but it does not show up in my plugins in the program. I went to the log and this is what I found:
11:54:57 PM: PlugInManager: Loading PlugIn: C:\Program Files\OpenCPN\plugins\chartdldr_pi.dll 11:54:57 PM: Error: Failed to load shared library 'C:\Program Files\OpenCPN\plugins\chartdldr_pi.dll' (error 14001: the application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail.) 11:54:57 PM: PlugInManager: Cannot load library: C:\Program Files\OpenCPN\plugins\chartdldr_pi.dll
So then I went to the Event Viewer and this is what I found there:
Log Name: Application

I deleted a bunch of the "<Data>" lines out of there but the rest of it is there. Does anyone know what is going on here? I tried that sxstrace.exe but a command line box came up and went away so fast that I have no idea what happened. Thank you.
