BBowers2004, we need more info.
You still have not told us what version of Opencpn.
1. Fresh Install, Windows 7 (x64?)
2. Fresh Install - Climatology (what number is the file?, do you have data directory with the current
data? Where is it located? (Path)
3. If I don't have the Climatology app loaded, it will give me the error of climatologoy error. (Do you have climatology checked in the Weatherrouting plugin, under edit?) -It should be impossible and greyed if climatology is not running.
Once I fix all the start , end points then it immediately crashes after I click route
-Do you mean click "Start"?
-Do you have a grib file up of 2-8 days of the area?
-You must use this plugin in conjunction with Grib_pi and/or Climatology_pi.
-Have you gone through all menus and set them up?
-Start small and work your way up. Get a small routing workiing first. See the isochrones and the route
working on the very small routing. Set the resolution and time periods realistically. Download a grib for your area. Set start and end points in your area. Start with a routing in an open area with not land. Check out the boat
settings, but leave them much as is, at first. Then once working you can try to load your polars, but don't do it first.
One main concern I had while installing was the data file folder. I wasn't completely sure by the instructions on what to put in there.
Weather_routing, Climatology_pi, Celestial_Navigation_pi and some others all require a data directory. Please go to Opencpn Beta File thingie and read up about where the data directories go. Climatology has an updated data file for currents from 1992-2011 on Opencpn Beta File Thingie. You can also go to Pavel's sourceforge download area for Opencpn Plugins. His may not be as current
, so beware, but the instructions are there too.
, also I didn't fully understand the "boat.xml" file option.
Maybe a short test file explaining this, I realize this is beta, but no other OPENCPN works with Windows 7 64 bit, and leaves me with no choice but to use this version.
Keep working at it, you'll get it . Then tell us what was wrong about the install please or what you did not understand so we can make it clearer.
