Updating Open CPN to 5.0

Hi, how do I go about updating Open CPN to version 5.0.

I don't want to lose my chars or mess anything up.

Thanks.

I think RTFM would be in place here!
As for all other SW, back-up first

Big Joe...
Updating from any O version 4 to 5.0 works fine. Just update using old settings. That's default.
On Windows or what?

You could ghost your drive before updating. It basically copies your entire drive to a backup that can be restored after, in case things get messed up and you are unable to recover.

Re: Updating Open CPN to 5.0

Hi - when I updated Open CPN to vers 5.0.0, I seem to have lost my 'install permit' for S63 charts, and the system is asking for it - I have all the other permits, and a footprint file - but my install permit disappeared. I've asked o-charts for assistance, and I've not received a reply.

How do I go about getting the install permit for my current user permit back so I can see my S63 Australian hydrographer charts?

Do I need to pay O-charts for a new userpermit and ask O-charts to give me a new install permit, then get my chart supplier (boat books Australia) to update the charts i get (and have paid a subscription for) to reflect my new user permit number? If I'd have known this would happen, I'd have not updated my Open CPN software version. Any help much appreciated.

Re: Updating Open CPN to 5.0

Is your S-63 plug-in present (and as well updated)?
Do you see the S-63 tab under Options|Charts?


In case this is not the reason, what is your operating system?
If that has changed you might need a new OCPN InstallPermit.
Your cell permits received from AHS will be ok.

Re: Updating Open CPN to 5.0

It's all working now - I had to go onto the O-Chart web site and generate a replacement 'installpermit'. Luckily, they had my 'userpermit' on file from when I bought it 3 years ago.

Re: Updating Open CPN to 5.0

Good to hear.



This does mean that your Operating system changed. Windows I suppose?
W10 automatic updates can cause "change of personality" in some cases. A low 1 digit percentage.

Re: Updating Open CPN to 5.0

Btw.: the oeSENC set for Australia might be interesting for you perhaps.
