RE: Voyage Planner and Navionics charts

Thanks for the follow-up. If you’re not in an admin account and then try to install and use VP, there is a high chance that it will lock you out of the AppData folder. This folder is critical to the application, as it is where Navionics stores their licensing keys and it is also where VP stores its database and software settings. It is the recommended Windows folder for storing all app settings and changes etc.

If the Windows security is low enough that it allows any regular users into the AppData, then it’s generally fine no problem for non-admin users. However, if the security is high and thereby preventing access the AppData, then it may cause issue. The developers of VP recommend using the software in an administrator account just to avoid the complexity of understanding and configuring Windows security.

The developers have had a few cases in the past in which the Windows operating system had prevented the registry keys from being stored or for database files to be accessed ... but it’s usually for people working on government or corporate PC’s with extensive security.
