I have a recurring problem with openCPN
2.5.0. I gather that no one else has this issue because I haven't seen any posts about it.
I had been using 2.3.0 with no problems and recently downloaded and installed 2.5.0. Everything went fine for a few weeks and then one day I opened the program and received the usual warning from windows 7 "do you want this program to make changes to your hard drive", I clicked "yes", then (because there was no GPS
plugged in) I get the notification "com port not found", and then nothing. If I look at the task bar the icon is there, if I open the task manager it shows openCPN
as running but nothing comes up on the screen
. This has happened for 3 separate installations. When it happens the software
will never open again. I re-install 2.3.0 and it runs all the time/every time with no problem. I then re-install 2.5.0 and it will run for 10 or 20 times and then it just stops. There is no "not responding' window, and as far as I can see it should open, but there is nothing there. Any Ideas?
