Most of the NV-charts for baltic sea are installed (ca 1 GB). These Charts where running under opencpn version 4.4 without a problem. After running an update-file of the charts from nv-verlag in September 2016, I was unable to update the charts in OPENCPN. Following happened: (please note, since I use the German version I may not use the correct english translated term on the screen)

opening the toolbox of opencpn -> selecting Charts -> selecting the correct directory -> click refresh entire database -> click OK
OPENCPN starts working on the internal database. The blue bar moves until ca. 50% of the charts -> A message pops up "opencpn.exe doesn't work anymore" with a button that allows to close the program. When clicking the button, opencpn shuts down.

The charts are correctly displayed and loaded with the original program provided by nv-verlag (chartnavigator light).
I have now installed the latest version of opencpn and the same problem exists as with the before version.

I may make the chart database available if this is of any help and may provide further details if required.

Thank you.
