Hi Stefan,

Thanks – I have done a new install and all seems fine for the moment!

Fingers crossed

Hi Graham,

I am running NfW within 8.1 Pro with no problems. I don't use any compatibility settings and just run the executable as administrator within NFW32 Properties. Using version 2.2c

Sometimes a clean install will do the trick (again).

  Hi All,

  As a user of the Nova programme for many years I have hit a problem when it is running on a W8.1 machine.

  Although, when you have selected XP compatibility mode it installs and works ok, after some time it refuses to read the map files and says that they are not present. It still runs the predictions and antenna drivers fine but no map!

  All suggestions about how to fix this annoyance will be gratefully received.

  thanks and 73
