Ocpn will not open raster charts

So, I am new at this and have installed OCPN 4 on my computer and pointed it to my BSB4 chart files directory, after enabling the BSB4 plugin. It's is not showing me the charts. I have directed it to the BSB4 folder, and observed the database update progress box doing the update.
I tried to attach the .ini and .log file, but it is not allowed?
Thank you for any help you can give me.

Ed Howe

Try again with the files. Just rename them. Stick a ".pdf" at the end of each file.
opencpn.log -> opencpn.log.pdf
This will make it possible to upload the files.

Note that supported charts must have been installed with appropriate encryption certificates in place.

Re: Ocpn will not open raster charts

The encryption files are in a separate folder. I have attached the files as per your instructions, Thomas. Thank you.

Re: Ocpn will not open raster charts

Ed...

The logfile looks ok, normal...

Code:
9:24:27 AM: PlugInManager searching for PlugIns in location C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenCPN\plugins
9:24:27 AM: PlugInManager: Loading PlugIn: C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenCPN\plugins\bsb4_win32_pi15_v12_pi.dll
9:24:27 AM:   C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenCPN\plugins\bsb4_win32_pi15_v12_pi.dll
              API Version detected: 105
              PlugIn Version detected: 102
9:24:27 AM: Opencpn language reload for:  en_US
9:24:27 AM: Loading catalog for:  opencpn-bsb4_pi
9:24:27 AM: Loading catalog for opencpn core.
9:24:27 AM: ChartDB Cache policy:  Application target is 1024 MBytes
9:24:27 AM: Loading chart db version: V018
9:24:27 AM: Chartdb: Chart directory list follows
9:24:27 AM:   Chart directory #0: D:\Charts East Vancouver Island\Bsbchart
It does not look like you have actually loaded the charts, but I recall that you said you did. The directory is known, anyway.

Try go to options->charts->chart files->Rebuild database.

You should see lots of stuff in the logfile showing the charts being loaded and added to the database. Clip some of that and paste it inline here, please.

Dave

Re: Ocpn will not open raster charts

I think I just saw the problem, it is not finding the encryption .dll
