I'm getting regular crashes to desktop
(CTD) when zooming. Across 2 different PCs, I get a guaranteed CTD after zooming out to the world map.
Any zoom operation that flashes a gray background signals an impending CTD. CTD seems to be more frequent when I am using Geolocation TCP with my Surface GO2 LTE (has GPS). It can be at mid-levels of zoom too. It can get very Hair-Trigger, risking a crash with any zooming. There are also stretches where the program is handling zooming fine (as long as I don't zoom out too far.)
A CTD also disables Windows Search next to the Start button. You can put the cursor there, but it won't take keyboard entries. This happens on both the Surface GO2 and an HP laptop
Spectre x360 laptop
I've done Full Data Database Rebuild
, Prepare all ENC Charts
, and Scan Charts
and update Database. It seems to help when I get hair-trigger CTDs with any zooming.
Tested with both CM93 January 2011 charts, and USCG ENC
Vector Charts (downloaded via Chartdownloader 1.3 plugin)
Surface GO2 LTE
Windows 10 Pro 1909
Charts on 128 GB SSD
The sailors I'm with that use this tool are used to iPads with Navionics
, where they endlessly pinch-zoom and drag. Using OpenCPN
like this inevitably leads to a crash to desktop
I'm fairly computer-savvy and can supply whatever files you would like. I'm on land this week. On Sunday I will be sailing north from the southern Oregon
border to Seattle
, where internet
connections will be spotty.
