What ist YADD_MMSI_SHIP-Download?
YaDD.exe is a well-known software for decoding DSC telegrams in nautical communication. With YADD_MMSI_SHIP-Download.exe you always get the latest ships and coast stations database from the GM4SLV web site, even if you are not registered at aprs.fi.
YADD_MMSI_SHIP-Download.exe is a simple console application. It updates the files YADD_MMSI_SHIP.TXT and YADD_MMSI_COAST.TXT when necessary and always provides the latest databases for YaDD.exe.
YADD_MMSI_SHIP-Download.exe automatically starts YaDD.exe three seconds after a successful download from the path specified in "yaddpath.txt", for standard installations:
C:\Program Files (x86)\YaDD\YaDD.exe
This path is also important for detecting the target directory where YADD_MMSI_SHIP.TXT and YADD_MMSI_COAST.TXT must be saved (either a VirtualStore directory
C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\YaDD\
or the application directory itself - a typical Windows security behaviour).
Verify the correct download
After the download click on the tab "Coast stations" in YaDD.exe. Next to "Ship names on file" the same number of ships should be reported as the downloader has found.
