Starnet 9.1b PRO

PRO version no longer any use to me as UK coordinate system not supported, so using GPS vectors is just too time consuming - I'll downgrade to standard version and use GPS co-ordinates.

Maintenance expired 13-9-18. Latest version it will run is 9.1b, or you can take out new maintenance.

All "converters" are fully functional in version 9.1 onwards. http://helpdesk.microsurvey.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/1450#9_1_0

Any sale will be conducted by method that protects buyer and seller. Probably eBay although I am open to other suggestions. I'll bear the fees for this.

Asking $1500 (USD) or near offer.

Can you not create a custom coordinate system for the unsupported UK system in this version of Star*Net?

From the 8.1.1 Reference Manual:

"Create Custom System
The Coordinate System Editor is accessible from the Adjustment Options dialog, by pressing the Create Custom System button.
It can be used to specify the Ellipsoid, Datum, and Projection parameters required to define your own coordinate system.
This replaces the text-based StarNet.cus file used in previous versions of STAR*NET."

@peter-lothian there's a shift grid file (OSTN15) that needs to be used. Despite instructions stating the contrary - I have now been told that it cannot be used in versions before 9.2 (4 years after the new transformation was released). At the end of the road now and after unwilling to keep on throwing money at it for the amount I use it.

Yes, this is correct, the OSTN15 system is supported in version 9.2 and newer, but older versions cannot be upgraded because some coding had to be rewritten to implement the change.  The 9.2 upgrade included about 150 new coordinate system options as new code written to support the system in FieldGenius was merged into all of MicroSurvey's desktop products.

Supporting Gridshifts are available for download here.

It is true that the current STAR*NET allows you to define your own projections, but this feature does not yet support grid shift datum transformations, only mathematical datum transformations.  There is a short video showing how you can define a system in the MicroSurvey "Tips and Tricks" You Tube channel.

@james-w-johnston I don't accept that previous versions couldn't handle a shift grid file as they already were with OSTN 2002. You also published an instruction sheet for adding the new system in 2016 but the instructions do not work.
