Access old ActiveCaptian database?
Access old ActiveCaptian database?
December 27, 2018 02:16PM
I see in PolarView NS V3.0.7 under POI List, ActiveCaptian is still listed. I understand we can no longer download/update this database, but is there a way to pull it from my other laptop running V3.0.3 that has AC loaded? Can I copy this data over to the new version and still access?

The dropdown is available for the benefit of existing users who have previously downloaded ActiveCaptain data.

Due to contract agreement we had with ActiveCaptain, downloaded data is not portable and can only be used on the same PolarView installation on which it was downloaded. Unfortunately, there is no way to transfer that data from one computer to another.

If you install current PolarView version over the existing version, ActiveCaptain data should continue to be available. It would be prudent to make a good backup of that data before any upgrade.
