Trouble with Object Search v0.7 for OpenCPN 4.2

Greetings all,

I've looked around the forum with no results for a problem I'm having with OpenCPN version 4.2 and object search. I can't get it to find anything. Previously, in version 4.0 it functioned fine. When I upgraded to the new version I uninstalled and deleted all directories. Then installed a clean copy. No luck. If I revert back to the old 4.0 version it functions fine.

I'm on Windows 8.1

I have the NOAA RNC & ENC charts loaded for the first CG district, I did switch to the ENC charts to be sure the system read the data file. I also deleted and the system recreated the C:\ProgramData\opencpn\\objsearch_pi.db file. Still not working. Below is the snippit out of the log.

9:06:03 PM: PlugInManager: Loading PlugIn: C:\OpenCPN\plugins\objsearch_pi.dll
9:06:03 PM: OBJSEARCH_PI: Database file to be used: C:\ProgramData\opencpn\\objsearch_pi.db
9:06:03 PM: C:\OpenCPN\plugins\objsearch_pi.dll
API Version detected: 113
PlugIn Version detected: 7

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Re: Trouble with Object Search v0.7 for OpenCPN 4.2

There is a bug in OpenCPN 4.2.0 preventing the ObjSearch plugin from getting the information about ENC chart objects. Already fixed in the master code and will be included in the next 4.2 maintenance release.
