I've been able to get the OpenBR24 software
working on Windows 7 (32 bit /x86) bit as per the screenshot. I expect this may work
on other versions of Windows.
Basically, the software
needs to be compiled before it will work
. To do this I installed Oracle Netbeans 7.2.1 and the Oracle Java Development Kit (JDK) from
JDK 7 with NetBeans
You will then be able to start the application from within Netbeans, or compile it it to run it as a standalone application.
Please note this software appears to be a radar communications
interface with a nice display ONLY, ie I do not believe it will overlay onto OpenCPN without a plugin, which someone at An OpenCPN Radar overlay plugin | Official OpenCPN Homepage
is hoping to create, so please support their work if you want to see this happen.
I don't have a radome yet
, but if you have a Lowrance BR24 or 3G and would like assistance getting this software working on your computer please message me and I'll do my best to get you up and running.
