Re: OpenCPN General

Manateegirls...
The only suggestion is to download again so that it is not broken. The size of the windows installer for OpenCPN 4.0 is exactly 28859693 bytes.
What exactly did Chrome say about it being "unsafe"?

Re: OpenCPN General

Thanks Patel-we have tried 3 times! The size is showing as 27.5mb-does this seem right? "This file may harm your browsing experience so chrome has blocked it" Any other suggestions?: banghead:
Thanks

Re: OpenCPN General

Use Firefox for the download and if necessary uninstall Chrome.

It's the first time something like this has been reported here.
Just crazy with >250.000 user where aprox 75% are on Windows....

Anyone can tell me where do you get the files for the plugins to use EU Tidal Currents?

I have the problem with plugins using Panda AV. Not a show stopper, but I have to tell Panda to recover the files and use them. Sort of a PITA. My guess is you are having a similar problem with your AV software.

Re: OpenCPN General

Of course Norton Security with Backup has gotten so agressive that it removes downloads for being "unknown" ws.reputation and has even labeled the opencpn download page a malicious site blocking everything. Of course I am disgusted with them, but not prepared to go naked as it has saved me lots of grief in the past. I just find the files that have been removed and have to over-ride. If enough users establish the files reputation it wont happen as much.

We arrived in Far East and forgot at home to disable AVG. changing the SIM avg decided, this phone must be stolen. Again, no help at all from AVG, but a monster phone bill on my one, at least I could reset the phone to factory state. 3 h later AVG was erased from all electronics and they never asked why. Cheaper to loose a customer then invest helping him.

Good luck whatever you choose, Heinrich

That's one reason I ditched windoze once and for all, and committed fully to Linux. I don't even use any AV or Anti-Malware on my puter. With a little smart and cautious computing, it seems to work just fine. One of the hassles of WinDohs for me was all the software that was supposed to keep my computer safe. It would delete stuff I NEEDED, delete apps, all sorts of stuff. I seldom was troubled with viruses etc but I am NEVER troubled by them, now. Ubuntu gives me the "are you SURE???" messages sometimes but never deletes stuff without my permission.

And I am very happy with how OCPN runs on both Ubuntu and my Android phones. The only thing I cant do on Ubuntu that I can do on Windoze is run VB plugins and some other proprietary MS stuff. Anybody sick and tired of Windows should try running Ubuntu or Mint from a LiveUSB thumb drive for a couple of weeks.

Re: OpenCPN General

Just downloaded version 4 for my mac to try and make the "waypoint" wording active when I right click on a waypoint, only to find that I now have an annoying 'camara click' noise whenever my boat moves on the screen as well as the unclickable waypoints!
Any help out there?

There are no other sounds nor 'camara click' noise in OpenCPN than "Ship Bells" (see User Interface in Options Settings) and "Play Sound on CPA/TCPA Alerts" (see Ships/AIS Targets in Options Settings).
