  • Re: Error in CMD Prompt Accessing AGL
    Board » Technical Support
    I think you see that warning in a DOS window.
    Nothing to worry about.

    Maybe your internet-connection was temporarily somewhat slower.

    Does patience the job and is your AGL after some delay working? All is good.

  • Re: SOLVED_No (2) digits behind the comma
    Board » Technical Discussion
    I was lucky because I use qtvlm wit english language. dot as decimal separator is then standard.

    I never used kroppyer's converter but excel & macros to get dc's into brainaids or autogribloader. And there was the same problem with dots and comma's.

    You write
    "(COGs have 3 digits before the comma and 2 digits behind)"

    Use dot . as decimal seperator instead of ,

  • Re: QtVLM and SOL
    Board » Technical Support
    I assume you are talking about seeing AIS-targets in QTVLM.

    question: what do you use to get your boat position into QTVLM?

    When I use brainaid's nmea-proxy then after some seconds the whole fleet around me is shown. Using AGL nothing is shown or after a very long time. Maybe I am not long enough busy with qt to see that happen.

    I'm on windows 11
    I uninstalled openwebstart.
    I installed Icedtea-Web
    brainaid's .jnlp files opened/worked much quicker than with openwebstart.

    (I do not know what IHM is but since you 'have never seen' it how do you know it is 'the worst'}

    Maybe hitting the 'GO TO RACE' button instead of
    '▶ Flash' button solves all your problems.

    And if hitting this button does not work then come back here with more specifics.
    - which operating system do you use?
    - which browser do you use? (opera, firefox, internet explorer, edge to name only a view.

    An adobe flashplayer that works in windows will be difficult/near-impossible to find. (Adobe no longer supports it since December 31, 2020)
