GE plugin display problems

Hi all,

I read the Readme and followed the instructions as best I could. I have spent days searching and reading these posts. I could have already found the answer, but I am so FFTTs by now I wouldn't know my own mother has she been resurrected.

Since I don't know what I am doing, I will give as much info as I can. Maybe one of you will take pity on an old man and tell me how I screwed this up.

When OpenCPN is started and the GE button is clicked, it opens GE and opens the attendant window in OpenCPN, but there is no image in that window. I have included the Log and Config files.

Some screen grabs to follow. Thanks in advance.

Google removed the API the plugin uses from the newest GE versions. You must downgrade to an older release. Version 6.2 available from https://support.google.com/earth/answer/168344?hl=en should work fine.

Re: GE plugin display problems

Thank you so much. I was getting a callus on my forehead and I may have damaged my keyboard.
