Thank you for your response, Thomas. I worked through the suggestions, re-named the .ini file and re-started OpenCPN
. And it crashed.
In the log files, I noted the same error messages. This is the message:
Error: Failed to convert file "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\opencpn\opencpn.ini" to Unicode.
11:42:56: Warning: can't open user configuration file 'C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\opencpn\opencpn.ini'.
11:42:56: Setting Viewpoint Lat/Lon 33.358, -79.282
File C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\opencpn\navobj.xml seems not to be well-formed UTF-8 XML, used fallback ASCII format conversion - some text information might have not been imported.
