I can make available my virtual version of OpenCPN built on xp for others to test on vista and or 7 perhaps you could do the same At their risk of course
oh,I'm pretty sure mine is XP specific.it's the "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\opencpn\" and "C:\Program Files"thing. Both changed in Win7.and next is what,Win8?
...sort of why I'd just as soon drag the installed version around...and why I'm not a big fan of PortableO
.It's such a good install and uninstall that it's nearly pointless...
and Where would I ever use this one I made?Not on my boat.Not on your boat.We can't have watchkeepers using different nav programs.And would you even let
me navigate your boat?
Perhaps just marginally I might visit someone and want to show them something on a chart....but the greatest and first nuisance is looking at their computer...aargh!damn thing is unuseable.Bloated,choked,time passes.No,I'd just take my phone
or netbook or charts or gpx.
