Thanks a lot for the support.
Now the boat
owner wants to be sure to have the same thing in 1.3.6 ... this is another story ... If we import
the .gpx from 4.6.1 in version 1.3.6 it freezes ...
I am glad to read that the waypoints were recovered.
There have been some additions to the waypoint information as newer versions of OpenCPN have evolved. Most likely 1.3.6 chokes on something new.
The waypoint dialog used to be a single
small window that would fit on the screen
without needing scroll bars. Now it is three pages. On the Basic page, I think the Arrival Radius is new, I know the Range Rings are new, and I know the Links (to local files or Internet) box is new. The Description page is new, but it simply makes it easier to expand on the Description from the Basic page. The Extended page is new.
I suppose running an old version of OpenCPN might be the only way to run on a Win95 machine with minimum RAM and disk.
