The install that causes this problem is a portable install on an SD card, so the data files are in the same directory as the executable.

Here's the interesting part. When I insert the SD card in my Win7-64 bit desktop machine - no error message. The crash directory error only happens when I insert the SD card into my Win8 tablet. In both cases, the SD card is drive E:.

And in so saying this, I have figured out the exact cause of the problem.

The message says:
Quote:
Directory 'C:\ProgramData\opencpn\CrashReports' couldn't be created (error 3:the system cannot find the path specified.)
On my Win7 desktop, I also have a "traditional" OpenCPN install, so that directory is present. But on my Win8 tablet, I have never installed OpenCPN onto drive C:. I only run OpenCPN from the SD card at E:

So on the tablet I created the empty folder C:\ProgramData\opencpn\ and relaunched, and OpenCPN created the folder C:\ProgramData\opencpn\CrashReports\ with no error message. I have now eliminated the error message on my tablet permanently.

Going forward, anyone who runs O in portable mode from an SD card on a "virgin PC" (no O installed) will see the error message. I assume that Linux/Mac will also have the same message under these circumstances.

Two possible fixes:

O should also create the folder C:\ProgramData\opencpn if it is not already present in the PC. (Same for Linux/Mac, though different naming convention.)

Or, when running in portable mode, O should put the crashreport file in the directory where the executable is located. When in portable mode, it should not look to drive C: for any folder structure.

You can find it in the help screen, logfile location.

Thanks

As you saw in my lengthy response above (written while you were posting your question), there was no data directory on C:, since O had never been installed on the tablet.

Yet again you have confounded O with your oddball environment.

Is it fun?

There exists no OCPN CrashReport system for Mac OS X. This OS has its own native system.

What do you see in the NMEA debug window while running 3.3.3503?

With 3.3.2503 i have NMEA but no information on the dashboard, see the picture.

With 3.3.2222 i have NMEA with information on the dashboard, see the reccord.

I guess I have the knack!

But when you think about it, the idea of keeping a portable version of O on a USB thumb drive or SD card and sticking it into any random PC isn't all that far-fetched. I think that was the whole idea behind supporting portable mode.

The screenshot shows that all the true wind sentences coming in are filtered and dropped. What are the filter setting for your connection?

You don't see it, because you have to add a line for this feature.

Then it is obvious, you are using a "whitelist" type filter, and are not allowing the right sentences in, the true wind info comes in VWT and MWV sentences - you have to add and enable them.

This works for the true wind with VWT and MWV.
Okay, but how do you explain that everything works with 03.03.2222?

I added RSA for the rudder, VLW for distance, I miss the wind rose and the history of the wind.
Thank you and congratulations, I use since october 2009.

It worked because the logic was different (and actually broken) in 3.3.2222

RD,

I totally agree with you, this is another goodway to use O in a portable environment.

The re-indexation in the charts menu is not working for me, do you face this kind of trouble ?

Re: OpenCPN Release Candidate 3.3.2503 Released

When i add MWD i find the true wind direction I get the wind and history.
