in the qtvlm_setup-5.0.17.exe (windows version) : the polar boat_A35.csv is not present. This file is present in linux 5.0.17 version and in qtvlm_setup-5.0.15.exe (windows version).
Very good tool. But be aware of the default VLM settings for the Grib file management. The programm will by default delete existing Grib files on your harddisk without further interaction, as soon as you open a Grib file from that folder. That is because by default setting "Automatically delete gribs older than 3 days" is checked.
hi there.. great program, but in the latest version the .csv export file does not contain time and date :)
