This page is for listing of bugs that need to be squashed before there is a 1.4 release. This is the official bug list page. Be sure bugs are linked to a JIRA issue as well (if there is one). There will be no new features added, this is for bug squashing only.

World Wind 1.4 requires .NET 2.0

Please note the installer does not correctly detect your current version of DirectX, you will need to install DirectX December 2006 or World Wind 1.4 will not run.



Please link to this page instead of direct download so bugs can be reported. Thanks.

1.4 Download

To download and install the latest 1.4 beta version (RC2) follow these steps:

  1. Download the World_Wind_1.4.0_RC2 installer
  2. Double click World_Wind_1.4.0_RC2.exe
  3. Pray

You should be able to have 1.4 and 1.3 installed at the same time because they keep their settings in separate locations. If you have run any other builds of 1.4 then you should delete your %appdata%\NASA\World Wind\\ folder.

NOTE: World Wind 1.4 requires .NET 2.0 and Managed DirectX December 2006.

Please read the list of fixed bugs before you add a new one

1.4 Bugs

  • "System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object" errors after setting "Don't use proxy" in Conf. Wizard (anyone confirms?)
  • NRLMonterey has ,/. issue
  • VE plugin has zbuffer issues (see through terrain)
  • <CacheExpirationTime> tag for QTS doesn't work
  • "Blurry Island" bug is affecting ZoomIt! layers (See JIRA WW-687)
  • worldwind:// links with "world=" parameters don't switch worlds.
  • Waving flag textures don't appear with low-end graphics cards. Flags are just white squares.
  • Placenames downloads freeze other downloads, queued requests arent removed when layer is disabled
  • HTTP 404 handling broken on tiles downloads, higher level tiles will be requested even if parent returned 404 (ie. L=0,X=0,Y=0 returns 404, L=1,X=0,Y=0 will still be tried and return more 404s). If this is a 'feature' please provide other means of informing downloader that higher level tiles doesnt exist (custom HTTP error code, custom header, ...).


  • Compass shows ? instead of degree symbol (is it really fixed? i still see '?') Fixed in SVN, this build isn't quite the latest.

Minor bugs


Other complaints ;)

  • Use BMNG+Bathymetry instead of plain BMNG
  • replace old atmospheric halo plugin with sky gradient (fix z-buffer issue first)
  • elevation of terrain under mouse not available
  • In the PlaceFinder dialog, the Virtual Earth geocoder tab's textbox should say "Keywords or address" so that it is clear that the user can type in addresses as well as keywords.

Installer Bugs

  • Installer does not correctly detect your current version of DirectX.
