I too cannot seem to get the 09 GE plug-in to work. Have Beta OpenCPN version and the latest GE plugin version. I get a transparent GE window but cannot save that view as a jpg (or any other file type). I am trying to save a small portion of the CM93 file as a jpg but can't do that from main OpenCpn pgm so am trying with GE plugin. Can send logfile and config file.
Location: Around once, back to work, for a while :-(

To replicate, you would need heading information sent to OpenCPN, from an el. compass. GPS only will just send random COG at anchor.
I attach a NMEA capture, to be replayed and show the problem. But, OpenCPN 1609 doesn't like the current VDR plug-in...
You are correct that #177 relates to pjotr's #103.
regarding his #84:
1: OpenGL on Vista just seems to be not working well. Pjotr and sailorF54 have trouble... Google "opengl vista problems" for an earfull.
I'm thinking about the problems, but cannot make too much progress without access to -very- similar hardware. The problems are not of first order in OCPN, since many other OCPN/Windows users can use OpenGL successfully. On the other hand, we may be able to work around questionable OpenGL installations on Vista if we only knew the exact failure mode. sigh...still thinking.
2: I don't know if this issues is new to 2.6, or longstanding. Seems like "split track" had been well tested.
3. Similar to above. New issue, or Feature Request?
I think both of these should go into FS, so they are not lost.
Regarding SART testing: I hope we are all not plagued by lots of meaningless SART testing when these thinks become more popular. I agree that we should not alert on MSG14 for SART tests. I suggest that they stay at the top of the AIS target list, however, since that will come to be where we expect to see SART targets. I am not adamant, however...
Tore, I see this on the forum often-win7 can be cranky with old "unapproved" hardware and drivers so google or a search here at CF are your friends, but get those administrative privileges first or you might not be able to install or see anything.
If "somebody" could build it, please! PM me if you want to send it via email, or post somewhere. I try to keep a clean user's environment, not keeping dlls, debug tools, etc, around, other users wouldn't have.
