“Install Contour Chart CD” message repeating indefinitely during installation

DISCUSSION

Introduction:
This document applies to Marine Navigator installations using the Offshore Navigator 5.04 Installer CDs (manufactured before 1/14/2004.) There is an incompatibility in the chart installation process (not in the Offshore Navigator program itself) that can cause a repeating message after the Maptech Contour Series CD(s) are installed.

This installation problem was fixed in CD version 5.04a (which was manufactured starting 1/14/2004.) This extended version number is in small print along the bottom of the CD-ROM. Please note that this issue is no longer present in any of Maptech's currently available product offerings, including the 3D Contour data included with Chart Navigator Pro.


Issue:
During the installation of Marine Navigator, the standard procedure is to insert the Offshore Navigator CD, then follow the on-screen instructions for installation and registration. After successfully installing the Maptech Nautical Charts (BSB4 Format) and Maptech Contour Series CDs, the installation program may give you a looping message that says “Insert Contour Series CD”, ok, “Insert Contour Series CD”, ok…


Workaround:
The solution to this is to exit the Installation program by holding Ctrl-Alt-Delete at the same time and then ending the Setup application through the Windows Task Manager. (Highlight the Setup application in the Task Manager, then press End Task.) While this will interrupt the installation process unexpectedly, it will not harm the installation or the computer in any way.

Once the Setup application has ended, the Maptech Nautical Charts and Maptech Contour Series charts are installed and ready for use in Offshore Navigator. However, any Coastal Navigation Photo and Coastal Topographic Map CDs are not installed.


Viewing Coastal Navigation Photo and Coastal Topographic Map CDs:
You can view Coastal Navigation Photo and Coastal Topographic Map CDs by placing them in your CD-ROM drive and starting Offshore Navigator.


Copying Coastal Navigation Photo and Coastal Topographic Map CDs to the hard drive:
Insert a photo/map CD into the CD-ROM drive and start Offshore Navigator. In Offshore Navigator, choose Chart List from the Charts menu and click on the Copy Charts to Hard Drive tab. The photos/maps on the CD-ROM should show up as a list on the left-hand side. You can then choose to copy individual photos/maps or Copy All.
