update manually installed ENC charts

I just grabbed a slew of ENC's from NOAA interactive catalog (excellent!) But now I'm not able to make sure the ENCs I've got are registered in OpenCPN and on the list to be updated with the automatic downloader plugin. Any ideas? Thanks!

Re: update manually installed ENC charts

There is no problem with the CA catalog or the plugin as far as I can tell, so what comes to mind is:
a) You really didn't have internet access
b) Windows is blocking access to the place where your charts are (It is a very bad practice to place data into a program files folder and the OS can be set to "protect" you from having programs writing there)
c) The catalog was temporarily unavailable from NOAA (now resolved as I can't see any problem)

Try moving your charts to some more reasonable location, like the default one the plugin suggests you when you add the catalog and make sure that the user you use to run OpenCPN has write access there.
