Thomas I could not find a hidden file. I did tick the show hidden files for this folder but still nothin in the Open CPN folder directly. It isn't in one of the sub folders is it? My suspicians are since it did not run it did not create a log file. I did try the uninstall program and that worked ok. Then tried re installing but same problem.
You have "Administrator Rights?" in xp?
You are using XP? you maybe already know all this but in case you don't..it's just for clarity I mention these...
Your install log that Cagney wanted should be here:
I think your OpenCPN log file should be in here:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\opencpn\opencpn.log
OpenCPN writes to this every time it starts and stops and it's a big help.
(Older versions install to...C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\opencpn\opencpn.log)
both of these are just text files and you can post 'em.. as copy+paste or change the .log to .doc and upload (tidier!)
But,you say they aren't there?Then OpenCPN didn't install
.The antivirus or whatever interfered and corrupted the install.Turn it
off or go into it and try to allow OpenCPN to run and
install the vcredist package-the latter is what it(Norton?) really
doesn't like,I bet.THEN reinstall OpenCPN.This might fixit.
PS you can check XP's "Add or Remove Programs" dialogue and see if "Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable " did
install.If not,THAT is your problem.
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp has stuff about the "vccredist" installing that might
be interesting but don't post em til someone asks!
