I run OpenCPN
in a VMWare virtual Windows 7 machine. I can also run OpenCPN
on the host machine which is Windows 10, but other software
which I wish to use whilst underway necessitates using Windows 7.
Both platforms use identical folders containing my CM93 charts
. On the windows 10 machine I can toggle ENC
text on and off. However, on the virtual machine I cannot.
The only difference between the two platforms is that when I select Options\Charts\Chart Files on the windows 7 virtual machine, there is a box in the bottom left corner labelled "Prepare all ENC
Charts". Clicking on this button does not prepare the ENC text and so text cannot be displayed.
I cannot find anything on the VMWare site. Does anyone know what could be causing this problem please? I have of course tried rebuilding the database but nothing changes.
Aaarrhh!! I just solved
it. I had 'Show Important Text Only' ticked. As there seems to be no important text in Cyprus
, nothing was showing. Unticking this option restored the ENC text to normal. Same with the Windows 10 platform. I will leave this post up to help others with the solution. Sorry!
