OpenCPN 2.3.0

Downloaded 2.3.0 a few days ago. I'm running it on Vista. Several times the computer has crashed (like the blue screen of death). What do you think, it's my computer or a glitch in the program?

CPN and Vista

Have updated to latest download with all previous charts and it is working great. Hope Cpn gurus can help more, not CPN or Vista problem with me.

Somehow I find it hard to belive that it's OCPN that causes the crash in Vista.
Vista causes Vista to crash.... It's proven over and over again...
(As well known out there, Vista was a major step back for Microsoft when they released Vista - It should never have been released in public).

Have you done all updates to Vista (Windows Update - Select all available updates), if yes - Update all drivers for the motherboard and GFX card, if yes - update BIOS to the latest (not beta version).

My suggestion to all Vista owners - spend your money on Windows7 and get rid of the Vistaheadache. It's faster and got 98% less bugs.
If you are not an advanced user, you will be good with 2GB- of RAM if you got a dedicated graphics-card inside the computer.

(hasta la Vista)
Best Regards
