OpenCpn not displaying raster VMH charts

Is anyone having issues displaying the VistMyHarbour raster charts on their OpenCpn? I have cm93 and VMH charts but can't display the raster and the chart bar is just one yellow box. The VMH charts work in PolarNavy and I have the directory added in OpenCpn of course. Any pointers greatly appreciated.

Re: OpenCpn not displaying raster VMH charts

Suggest closing down OpenCPN. Unlock the charts again with the Runme.exe program/'I Agree' and then see where the charts are located. Start OpenCPN and add that folder. It should load all the charts and then (pain) when you say 'Ok' it goes through the same loading process again.

The main folder where OpenCPN is looking for the charts may have changed, especially if using the USB stick.

Had the same issue.
You need to plug the stick in before starting Ocpn.
Then run the unlock procedure
Than start Ocpn.
Than refresh database (including the sticks folder.).
Good 🍀!
