Running Genapts850 for Many Airports

Postby pb321 » Thu May 14, 2020 3:23 am

Genapts850 seems to generate only 4 -6 airports at a time using Terragui's "Generate all airports in apt.dat--start at airport with ICAO" with a large .dat file. While this is better than generating one airport at a time, it is still not efficient. Does Genapts850 work better under Linux than Windows 10? Does anyone know the reason Genapts850 will not continue until it either hits an airport it has a problem with or until it reaches the end of the file?

Haven't had that problem on Linux. I have noticed a few runways that became holes, but the vast majority of them are generated with no problem.

Thanks @montagdude. Today must be a new day because genapts is working much, much better. Yesterday every time it would stop it did not show the progress bar (will only appear at the end of processing anyway) and would go into a revolving blue circle "not responding" mode. I would have to "End Task" before starting it again. Today it completes at least several airports and sometimes many, many airports, before it stops, but the progress bar also displays and it hasn't gone into the "not responding" mode. It also bypasses airports with an issue (mostly, if not all, large airports) and continues on for several airports.
Does anyone know what would have caused genapts to go into a "not responding" mode?
