Too many waypoints
#1
Hi,

I got this message today - 

[Image: RouteConverter%20too%20many%20waypoints.png?dl=0]

Is it a bug or is something wrong with my PC.

I know I have a java problem - it closes down RouteConverter, very annoying especially if route not saved, but I never had the above issue.

Just in case they are related, this is the Java error :- 


A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:

#
#  EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) at pc=0x000000006d2ea30c, pid=19564, tid=0x00000000000018f8

Many Thanks

That's the Google Maps Directions API claiming that RouteConverter sent 26 waypoints while the limit is 23 plus start and end.
Which version of RouteConverter have you've been using?

That's a completely unrelated problem: Oracle's Java 8 Update 161 crashes on a lot of user's machines.
The workaround is to go back to Java 8 Update 151 which seems to solve the problem for most users.

Hi Christian,

Using version 2.21.1.  By the way this route was originally a Garmin export. See gpx file attached
.gpx   sussex route.gpx (Size: 118.79 KB / Downloads: 437)
I never had this issue with a Garmin file before. It could be just something wrong with this file but i get the same problem even after copying the positions to a new RouteConverter file.

Thanks for the Java advice - I will try java 8 upd 151 and hope it will solve my problem as well.

I've tried the route on my machine and it works fine.

Sorry, I should have added... Try to add some extra waypoints by dragging (important to use dragging) the route to other locations. On the 3rd drag it will happen.
I tried it by inserting new locations and it works OK.

BTW - I downgraded to Java 8 -151 and it solved the crushing problem - many thanks for the advice

Christian, found the problem. Was in the registry - [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JavaSoft\Prefs\slash\navigation\mapview\browser. I had to restore my registry from an old backup which had the old line colour changes etc.. deleted the whole group and all works fine now. A new one created automatically with minimum entries.

I am not sure which entry caused the problem ..... happy that is working fine now

In case you are interested .....

It seems you have imported the complete HiddenOptions registry file - that's not what it was intended for.
