You can also use any of the the current versions of WindPlot (7.19-7.29) we have made for Vista on Windows 7, 8 and 10.

WINDOWS 8.1 and 10 WARNING!

Try NOT to let the computer do any updates but do not stop them once they start. Pull the internet cable out as soon as you get Windows registered with Microsoft. Turn Windows Updating service off as soon as you can. Be sure to install the 8.1 keydrivers if you have key#'s less than 8000. If you have Winows 10 (excluding the PRO version then we suggest you go to a computer store and have them disable the WiFi and change the IP to a static address so it can't update itself.
NOTE: We found that most memory sticks will store no more than 65000 files so those with over 32000 track files should beware that all of your tracks may not be saving to a memory stick.

Now drag the mouse arrow anywhere starting at top-right anywhere on the plotter screen in a down and right movement to create a box that it will zoom to when you release the left-mouse button.

Improvement: East-coast charts force range
Improvement: Now compatible with the new P-Sea MPA Importer. Now that NOAA is providing ALL MPA's on the web, we have come out with a program that will import these files and then convert them to be compatible with P-Sea WindPlot. A link above is provided to download the complete set of boundaries. The Importer program is installed when you install any of the version 7.29 programs.Just look for the icon on your desktop after installing.

Fixed: Boundary type color file missing.
Fixed: Errors when running MPA program fixed.
Fixed: Program would hang on some new installs fixed.
Fixed: Discovered max files on flash drive as 3200. Fixed by dividing track files into multiple folders. (will no longer be compatible with older versions.)

Added: P-Sea MPA_Importer program (new icon) to import the thousands of MPA's from NOAA web site.

Install problems


Be sure to give the installer program time to finish. It is common to get a few error messages when installing a and then when first running the newly installed programs. Just try and run it (the installed program) at least twice before reinstalling or calling for help.

3D with Windows 7... If you install WindPlot 3D and it crashes when trying to open the 3D window then download the the following DirectX update file:

directx_feb2010_redist.exe

Run it and tell it to extract to a "DirectX" folder on the C drive. Then locate the "DirectX" folder using "Computer" and then locate the DXSETUP file inside it and double-click it to make it start then follow the instructions from there. The 3D window should then open after all files are updated.
LORAN-C automatic correction factors (ASF)
When this 7.29 update is installed and running, you should see a "USE ASF" check box on the TD calibration box and in the TD to LL converter located in the OPTIONS menu. Just check this and it will ask for an activation code. Purchase the code and enter it here. Then, you will be using ASF when the box is checked and using your old calibrations when it is not checked. Compare them now before Loran-C is shut down.. We believe the ASF corrections to be almost as close as the calibrated values for working offshore (NOTE: Errors will incease in ASF corrections as you get close to land.)
If you never see any message or the WindPlot II program starts but quits right away and the THREED32.OCX register described above didn't work then try the following:
Reinstall the program this way:
Use Windows Explorer to find the folder named "WpInstall" and open the folder. Right-click on the SETUP??? file and choose "RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR". The ??? after setup will depend on the program your installing: P-Sea WindPlotII is "SETUP.EXE", P-Sea WindPlot MAX is "SETUPMAX.EXE", WindPlot 3D is "SETUP3D.EXE" and WindPlot MAX 3D is "SETUP3DMAX.EXE". Then finish reloading the program.
If that fails they search for RUN and open it. Then RUN and enter REGSVR32 /u SAPI.DLL and click on OK
If it does not say the operation was completed successfully then search for SAPI.DLL and copy it to the Windows/system32 folder.
Now enter REGSVR32 SAPI.DLL at windows RUN box and click on OK then try running the program again.

New install problem of no start or OUT OF MEMORY: We have found a file called THREED32.OCX is not registered by windows like it should. Try the following
1) Click on START then choose RUN.
2) Clear it out and enter: REGSVR32 /U THREED32.OCX then click on OK (you may get an error message. that is ok)
3) Now clear out and enter REGSVR32 C:\PC-PLOTT\THREED32.OCX then click on OK(you should get a message that it was successful)
4) Now try WindPlot, it should run now.
