OK, thanks for your reply. I have read the help, it is very good and I presume the problem lies with me. This is what I have so far.
I think I am almost there. But.......I keep getting the following error
Error:Open Failed for overlay file:
It may be open in another program.
I don't think it is open in another program as I have closed everything.
The issue I think I have is that I don't know the correct name for the chart file.
If I open openCPN, go to the area I want, in this case Gizo, I have the buttons across the bottom showing the charts
. I hover the cursor over the button and see the info, which gives a label "Chart file
D:\Documents\These charts\CM93_8_2009\00300000\A\00300000.A". I put that into the GE2KAP for the overlay image location and I just get the error message.
I have a few buttons that all have Gizo charts and I have entered the file name of each and it hasnt made any difference.
These are the locations I have tried all for the Gizo chart;
