Tried a few times opening and closing the program (from the task bar). Nothing changed, so reinstalled. Still the same.

Any suggestions appreciated.
I have had exactly the same problem, I sorted the problem by uninstalling and downloading again, that seemed to cure the problem. I am now struggling to find the charts without having to leave my credit card on some Russian site so if anybody would like to PM a source I would appreciate it..........

Re: OpenCPN 2.5.0 Win 7 problems

I had that problem too. In my case, it seemed to be related to having Google Earth open.

I'm a swedish sailor, now on anchor in Ghambia, Africa(Banjul).
I really apprechiate OpenCPN and have used it on laptops under Windows/XP with only problem to find out, needed to use "maximize" to get program to start, referring to what is problem for "Jimbim".

From a former navigationteacher, now "occupied" in long sailing :-)

Re: OpenCPN 2.5.0 Win 7 problems

I had exact same problem under windows/XP and it might be same under Windows 7.

I rightclicked on taskbar(?) and clicked on maximize. This solved my problem and the great OpenCPN was visible in full action on screen.
