Installing cm93

My laptop has Vista.When I try to instal cm93 I get the message "ECS requires 256 colour mode".My laptop is AMD and I cannot find that setting anywhere.Any advice?

I don't have vista, but if you right click on the executable file and look at the properties, you should see a 'compatibility' menu which give you the choice of executing that program in 256 colors.

You are far better off downloading the free OpenCPN from this forum, and using it with your CM93 charts.
