Known Problems 
Cruise Ship Captain will run best on Windows 2,000,  XP or Vista machines. It will run on most advanced Windows 98, SP2, machines with a Pentium 4 or better, so long as you use at least the 32 bit setting for color display. With Windows 98, your ability to zoom in on the harbor image is restricted. 
 
If you have set your display to show larger letters by changing the DPI (dots per inch) setting to other than the "normal size (96DPI), the ship may never be visible. To correct this, right click your desktop and select Properties - Settings - Advanced and you will see a "DPI setting" selection box. Select "Normal 96DPI". 
 
With the introduction of version 3.1V, updated for Windows Vista, a few machines running XP will no longer display the help file when F1 is pressed. If this happens to you, first use Windows Explorer and double-click on C:\Program Files, Windward Technology\Cruise Ship Captain\ShipCaptain.chm. Then please report the results to us so we can find out what is "missing" from some XP machines. 
 
One user had a machine with dual operating systems, Windows 98 and OS2. Cruise Ship Captain could not be made to run correctly on that machine. Another user with a home made machine running 64 bit Vista Ultimate could not get the software to run. 
 
If the display seems to run slowly and in "spurts", try unchecking the "allow animation" box in the bridge window. 
 
One downloadable version had a problem with "Restart" leading to program failure. This has been fixed as of 4 June, 2006.
