Bimba...


Again, read the tutorial, and to emphasize what T-Dan said:


From the tutorial...........:



Contents of Install Package:
  • GE2KAP.exe
    The program to execute GE2KAP.rex. At first start, it will also run Check.rex to check if all the prerquistes are installed.
  • Install_Plugin.exe
    The program to install the OpenCPN plugin (ge2kap_pi.dll) for GE2KAP. Do not run this program by itself. The first time you run GE2KAP.exe, if the plugin is not installed or its the wrong version, this program will be invoked to install the plugin.
    It can be run again by running Check.rex.
  • GE2KAP.rex
    The GE2KAP program. This is what you run.
  • GE2KAPFuncs.dll
    A dll with functions used by GE2KAP. It must be in the same directory as GE2KAP.rex.
  • View.xxx
    A program used to view the chart produced. It must be in the same directory as GE2KAP.rex. It will be copied into View.exe the first time GE2KAP runs.
  • English.mo/....mo
    Language files for the various languages supported. They must be in the same directory as GE2KAP.rex.
  • Help directory
    Help directory. It must be in the same directory as GE2KAP.rex.
  • ge2kap_pi.dll
    This is the GE2KAP plugin for OpenCPN. It needs to be copied into the opencpn\plugins directory which is usually
    C:\Program Files\opencpn\plugins or C:\Program Files (x86)\opencpn\plugins
    then rename it to ge2kap_pi.dll
    After copying, start OpenCPN and enable the plugin Options..Plugins..ge2kap Click Enable then OK.
    If you run the Check.rex program, it will install the plugin automatically.
  • Check.rex
    A program that will check that all the prerequistes are installed.
  • Queue0.img
  • ...........................More....

Re: OpenCPN Techinal Assistance Please

Hakan, I have added your notes to the Plugin Manual... there were absolutely no specific directions on Installation process.

https://opencpn.org/wiki/dokuwiki/do...igation:ge2kap

I am having a problem. Paul Higgins refers to reading the README. Where is that found?

Also where is the "Tutorial" Found?

Thanks.

Try this from the GE2KAP installation folder:

file:///C:/GE2KAP/GE2KAP.V18.0.0.2/Help/English/index.html

The README is a file in the GE2KAP program folder that, when opened launches the built-in HELP discussion with your computer's browser. It's quicker to access the HELP from the first pane of the GE2KAP program by pressing F1.

The 'Tutorial' has now been named 'Step by Step Procedure' and is accessed by clicking on the box with that label on the first pane of the GE2KAP program. Lots of procedures described and they can also be narrated by Windows.

And I've not updated my tutorial/briefing on GE2KAP since these Step-by-Step Procedures have been incorporated into the program. But since using the SAS Planet program with GE2KAP has many advantages, I've also written a guide for using the programs together, GE2KAP2SASP
