I am a happy OpenCPN
user since several years.
After last season I had to buy a new computer (hard drive crash on the old Win 10 machine), so I'm now installing OpenCPN
on the new one (Win10) and experience an odd problem.
OpenCPN starts up alright with no connections configured.
When I configure the USB port connected to the NMEA
multiplexer (Shipmodul) everything is OK at first. I see a good NMEA
stream from all instruments (AIS/GPS, wind
If I close OpenCPN and restarts it without doing anything else OpenCPN just hangs and stops responding.
If I pull out the USB OpenCPN can start again, but as soon as I reconnect the USB the program hangs again.
The only way to get it to work
is to delete the connection with the USB pulled out and then reconfigure the connection, a procedure that has to be repeated for each program start!
I have tried both 4.4 and 4.6.1 with the same result...
If I use the USB port on the AIS/GPS directly it works fine (though I miss the information from the other instruments then)
On the old computer I ran 4.4 without problems...
Any suggestions what I can try?
