Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Hi Paul,
I want to thank you for an excellent program! I use a program called ReefMaster which allows me to create my own maps by charting bottom contours. I used to be able to load them into my Garmin chartplotter, however Garmin has blocked the use of second party charts. Iím able to export my ReefMaster chart as a PNG image file and a Google Earth KML calibration file. Then with your program Iím able to create a KAP file to use in Open CPN which I can use on a small laptop while fishing. This worked fine until several changes ago. I now receive an error message:
PGNAME Fatal Error! Press OK to terminate.
Error: SYNTAX occurred at line 37758
Content of line:
refs = pRefTable[nlonmin]
ERRORTEXT: Incorrect call to method
Iím pretty sure that I have kept everything updated but I certainly could have missed something. Iíve enclosed the log file below. Thanks so much for your help and an excellent program.

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Sat2Chart.V1.0.0.0 the first official version is now available. Has two fixes since the last beta version:
- Creating a chart from an image with geo-referencing data works.
- Lock to prevent running more than one copy of Sat2Chart.

You can get the new version from the Downloads page of my website: Sample
or click on this link:
http://gdayii.ca/Downloads/Sat2Chart.V1.0.0.0.exe

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Hi Paul,

I have tried to use new version of your program. I uninstalled GE2KAP 34.0.0.9 and installed Sat2Chart downloaded from your site, but I have an error like in attachment.
I do it on two different Laptops.

Do I need any special steps to perform before using new version of "GE2KAP"

Thanks for your great tool,

Pawel

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Where did you get your versions of OORexx? Are you sure its the 32 bit version? I would suggest you uninstall oorexx then download and install this one from this link. Take all the defaults when installing:

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

It was correct with:
opencpn 5
SE2CHART 1
GE 7.1.2.2041
OOREXX 5.0.0.11579

Hi,

I had ooRexx 4.2.0.9940 32bit (which was working with GE2KAP 34.0.0.9).
As you wrote I replaced with new one 5.0.0.11579 32bit and it is working now.

Thanks for advise

Maybe this small note should be somewhere written to avoid future confusion.

Great tool - thanks for your work.

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

hello Paul as many users I enjoy your application but after updating OPENCPN to V5 and reinstalling sat2chart,
I have this msg when launching SAT2CHART :
C:..... sat2chart.exe is not a valid win32 app
I'm running on WINDOWS XP SP3 32bits, OPENCPN 5, OOREX is the last I found by your link above. I'd download several times from your site expecting a corrupted package.
On my windows 10 there's not any problems to start sat2chart.
Could you give me some advice please?

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Caprarebird,

Did older versions of GE2KAP run on your XP system using OORexx V4.20?

I'm not running an XP environment so I'm not sure why it would not work. If I get time I will create a virtual box on Windows 10 and try it.

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Sat2Chart.V2.0.0.0 is available, it gives you the capability of editing MBtiles charts to add more information with your favorite image editor or the image editor "View.exe" that is shipped with Sat2Chart.

Below is an example of an mbtiles chart of Marina Hemingway that I edited with my image editor Snagit to add more information.

You can get the new version by clicking on the "Check For Updates" on V1.0.0.0 or the Downloads page of my website: Sample

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Caprarebird,

There is a newer version of OORexx V5 then I have on my website. Can you download it and see if it makes a difference, you can get it here:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/oor...exx/5.0.0beta/

Download the ooRexx-5.0.0-11852.windows.x86_32.exe

Paul
