difficulties with oeSENC downloads

I was heartened by the addition of Aussie charts to the list of available oeSENC downloads. So, I downloaded the plugin and enabled it, and followed the directions for acquiring the charts. After some glitches with the site and cookies I purchased the license and began downloading the files. My connection isn't very fast, so it took some 30 minutes to complete. Once done, I nominated a destination and proceeded, only to see an error message saying "zip file error". A few minutes later I got an email saying that it had been successful, and that the files would be available for a week...the email that I was told to ignore.

It returned me to the page saying ready for download. After some bitching on my part, and some searching to see if the charts were hiding somewhere, I repeated the download process. When completed, nothing happened and the screen reverted to saying "ready to download" again, again with no sign of the charts appearing.

I must be doing something wrong! Any help will be appreciated.

Jim

Re: difficulties with oeSENC downloads

I am not sure where you are trying to download your charts from? When I buy charts after a few hours delay I get an email like this:-
Quote:
CHART SUCCESSFULLY PROCESSED - DOWNLOAD LINK

https://ocharts.blob.core.windows.ne...T09%3A32%3A22Z

Order reference: CSPTHTSBN
Chart: Spain 2017
System: fareham
File size: 260.37 MB

This file will be available for download for a week.
Clicking the link downloads the encrypted charts which can then be unzipped and put in the ocpn chart folder. No access to the o-charts web site is required.

Re: difficulties with oeSENC downloads

The AUS set it over 800MB and can be problematic on a poor internet connection. My first two attempts dropped out after several hundred MB (the final download took a heck of a lot more than 30 minutes - it was several hours). If the download isn't completed, you will get the ""zip file error" message



The zip file should have downloaded to something like C:\ProgramData\opencpn\oesenc_pi. My successfully downloaded zip was 826,877MB - yours should be similar. The file name will be in the format "YourSystemName-AU-2019-x.zip" where x is the current sequential version AU set number for 2019 (probably about 10 or 11?)



Note that the email says the file was "Processed", meaning that it is as been built for your credentials with filename as above and is available to download, not that it has actually been downloaded.

If you didn't get the full file you can either download from the email link and manually extract the files from the .zip or you can just repeat the download from the plugin page.

Re: difficulties with oeSENC downloads

Jim

There is indeed a problem with interrupted downloads on Windows, using the oeSENC plugin. The good news is that, the latest version of the plugin, available here https://github.com/bdbcat/oesenc_pi/...ov50-win32.exe, has been updated and takes care of false messages that download has succeeded, when downloading via the plugin.
So first upgrade to the latest version.
Then, you have two options for download, either through the link that was mailed to you, or by using the oeSENC plugins tab in options->Charts.
Perhaps the direct download is better on a slow line.
Good Luck!

Re: difficulties with oeSENC downloads

thanks all, problem solved: download had been successful, zip file was hiding!
