Installed 5.6 on mac os and now can not get weather routing or climatology to activat

Hi all,

Just updated (or so I thought it would be an update) OPEN CPN on my macbook pro and now the climatology and the weather routing plug ins do not activate no matter what I do. I have enabled them numerous times and reinstalled and ticked the box to enable and they do not show on the OPEN CPN chart page and therefore can not use them.

When go back to the plug ins menu (in preferences) they are not enabled and so the cycle continues.

Was working fine on the previous release (5.2.4) so any ideas?

Also, how do I go back to release 5.2.4? If this is the only way can get the weather routing and climatology to work?

Thanks

DTD

Re: Installed 5.6 on mac os and now can not get weather routing or climatology to act

We need a copy of your opencpn.log file. Rename it as opencpn.log.pdf and upload it here please. We need to find out what is causing this problem and need help from MacOS users. Please advise what version of MacOS and which version of the Mac plugin you are using? Is it the wx315 version?

Please see https://www.cruisersforum.com/forums...ng-258613.html
Sorry, but apparently nobody using MacOS has been testing any of these plugins along the way. So we need your and other MacOS User's help to fix this.

Also please confirm that you are using the PIM Plugin Manager (master catalog) version of weather_routing and climatology (not one you compiled) and list the version numbers that you are using. Thanks.

DTD...


under macOS it is quite simple to use parallel installs of different OCPN versions:
before installing a new version rename the existing OpenCPN entry in Applications - for example to OpenCPN-5-2-4.
Then install the new one. It will show up as OpenCPN.

You will be able to run those different versions. They will use the same settings.
