Gosmore for Windows crashes


I tried to play around with gosmore for windows, but it crashes as soon as I start it.
I did not find any documentation that tells me more than that I have to click on gosmore.exe. Has somebody additional hints what I should do?

Thanks for any help.


Tell us first what version of gosmore you are trying exactly, furthermore your used hardware and operating system.

and: where did you download the map data from? file size?

When using gosmore on WinMobile or windows (?), a log file is written right from the beginning of the programm, see http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Gosmore

any hints there?

I loaded the current version (2011-02-21) from here:

First I tried to start it without additional map data. According to the wiki that should be possible. The program crashes at once without writing any logs. Then I tried to drop the baden-wuerttemberg.osm (2.471.356.631 Bytes) from http://download.geofabrik.de/osm/europe/germany/
This produces a lot of empty “.tmp” files but then the program crashes again wihtout writing a log.

My System is:

  • Windows XP SP3
  • 3GB RAM

The system is a 32-Bit System.


Afaik, Gosmore cannot create PAK files on Windows, only Linux.
