Re: S-57 Charts

The only S-57 charts you get for free are for the US.

The rest of the Hydrographic Offices license the S-57 cells in the encrypted S-63 format. For OpenCPN you need the S-63 plug-in.

For further information you might have look at the manual
All About Charts | Official OpenCPN Homepage
and at o-charts.org that handles the UserPermits for OpenCPN

Re: S-57 Charts

Thanks, so if I understand, I buy the permit number from o-charts and the other software, use that number to buy the Enc S-57 charts, as I asked for S-63 charts and they said it is only S-57?

Re: S-57 Charts

Ivan,

where did you ask?
I tried to explain: there are no plain S-57 charts but the ones from the US as dar as I know. All the other S-57 charts are licensed in the S-63 encrypted format.

Re: S-57 Charts

Yes, this is a known issue.

If you want to help please send a "false positive" report to the manufacturer of your virus checker.

If you don't have success to get the "fingerprinter" drop us a mail at o-charts and we will send the executable as an attachment.
But we would prefer that the "normal way" works.

Re: S-57 Charts

The actual version of the S63 Plug-In is 1.0
Has this been your question?

I had the same problem as you. Finally, a friend told me that Microsoft has posted an excellent antivirus, completely free.

This antivirus is called "Microsoft Security Essentials"

To download it, go to the Microsoft website.

At first, I had left my old antivirus and I had installed that of MIcrosoft more.

But, it slowed my PC.

I ended up uninstalling my old antivirus and I kept that of Microsoft.

Best regards, Gilletarom.

Re: S-57 Charts

Ivan,

1 - where did you license charts? Who are "the guys"?
2 - did you go through the step-be-step video that explains how to install permits and charts for S-63
3 - can you post a screenshot which the question you are mentioning? The IHO Public Key should be in place with the Plug-in installed.

4 - Don't worry!

Hubert
