What works

Basic functions work as expected and match performance on WinXP system. Even the ship's bell feature works (download the .wav files and select the option in the appropriate menu). The app is basically quite usuable except for...

What does not

...pop-ups next to the icon or open window. The window, if un-minimized may not re-draw or fill unless options are taken from right-clicking the tray icon. Using conctl32.dll in native mode seems to clean up the reported problem with a persistent grey window. The window at least goes away when the click ends.

Additional Comments

Loss of popups is trivial. Odd refresh trigger is a minor annoyance with an easy work-around (right click the tray icon) On all other respects, WXTide32 works as it should!

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

Manual installation is recommended. In addition to the base package in WXTide47.zip, wvsstarter.zip (for locating tide stations) should be downloaded. For those wishing to have the sound of a ship's bell struck to mark the passage of watches (if you don't know what this means, try it if you want, it's not needed and can be switched off, if installed, from the preferences options), shipsbell.zip should also be downloaded. Follow the instructions below, from the WXTide32 web site, to install the app. Create a shell script or use

wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/WXTide32/wxtide32.exe

to launch the app. Use File -> Location to launch the tide station location popup. Left-click zooms in on an area, right-click zooms out. Red marks are tide stations, blue marks are current stations, only stations in the vicinity of the mouse click are displayed.

If you prefer to do a manual install or if an automatic install fails:

  1. Create an empty folder for the program, usually "C:\Program Files\WXTide32\" but any folder will do.
  2. Unzip all files into that new empty folder. The files "setup.exe" and "wxtide43.inf" are not needed.
  3. Find "WXTide32.exe" in the new folder and right click drag it to your desktop to make a shortcut for the program.
WARNING

"Do not rely on the output of this program for decisions that can result in harm to any person or property. There is no way to provide certified data on a zero budget so if you need guaranteed results then WXTide32 is not for you."
