Version: navit-svn-5561-setup.exe
PC: Windows 7

After the installation in Windows directory: C:\Programme(x86)\Navit
I can not find the file maptool.exe for converting OSM_map.osm to OSM_map.bin

Is this file separately to install?

I don't know about these Windows packages since I'm not using Windows at all, but it seems that also in the
zip files (http://download.navit-project.org/navit/win32/svn/navit-current.zip) there is no Maptool. However, you can find it in these zip files:

http://download.navit-project.org/navit ... urrent.zip
http://download.navit-project.org/navit ... urrent.zip

Both should work for you.

Thanks for the link to maptool

In the application of the program, I get no further.
With Windows7 I used the command:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Navit\bin>maptool -i d:\navit\osm\map.osm d:\map.bin

a window with the error message appears: maptool.exe no longer works

If I try maptool.exe alone also appears the same error message

What is wrong!

Hi Herman,

is there any special reason, why you try to use maptool manually?

We offer custom OSM binfile areas from our servers, that are (mostly) on a daily update:
http://maps.navit-project.org

P.S.
I got now finally different Windows versions to test our releases against them :) So maybe I can say something within the next days.

Is there any other information, like some command line output, or does it crash just at the beginning? Maybe it has problems loading some libraries...

Hi Usul!
For me, the Arabic letters in the Navit_OSM.bin are somewhat illegible. :?
For such zones a card with Latin characters is desirable.
On the page http://toolserver.org/~osm/locale/en.html
I have found the right. With maptool it becomes a Navit.bin.
If the original characters required, just the Map switched.

So at least maptool seems to du something before crashing... Unfortunately I cannot provide any further support on Windows, I don't even have Windows here and didn't use it for years. But I hope someone from the team can have a look.

@hermann,
Windows isn't so good supportet. So it would be the better way, if you install VirtualBox on Windows and then in Virtualbox an Ubuntu-Client. Then you can install navit and maptool under Ubuntu and so maptool should work's perfect.

@herman I will try to get a virtual machine with Windows ready, but please be patient.

If I understand you right, you want to see not the local strings of a area (as OSM name=*) but the international versions (as name:en=*)?

I guess it would be a useful feature for navit at all. If you like, please submit a feature request as currently nobody seems to have that in focus:
