Yes - this message will continue to pop up unless you decide to register it.
If you click ok, you can continue without registering it.

I clicked OK for the GSview verification code and get the following message:

If you want to register for gsview you will need to get a verification code.
If you want to use it without registering you need to click ok on the window that pops up before that rather than register now.
See the screen shot below.

See if you can open gsview without HYSPLIT.
You may need to reinstall gsview.

The Ghostgum website clearly states you cannot register v5.0. I do not know how users can circumvent this registration issue. I have been pressing "OK" as a workaround to use it but I am trying to configure HySPLIT to use Ghostscript instead.

Hello,

I have the same problem. Does someone have any information by Ghostgum website ? Do you find any solution to use Hysplit without GSview ?

Thank you by advance.

For information, I wrote at Artifex, creator of GSview to have any informations and this is the answer I received :

"First of all, we have deprecated GSview. The small number of users did not justify continued updates and effort. I am sorry if this is an inconvenience. In all fairness, Ghostscript does all of the work. GSview is merely a GUI front-end. Your can try obtaining GSView(5.0) here: http://www.ghostgum.com.au/software/gsview.htm
or you can also try accessing it here: https://gsview.software.informer.com/6.0/"

But GSview doesn't work more with these download links. I ask if they have a solution to tell me.

Maybe, someone know here an other software to replace GSview in the utilization of Hysplit?

Thank you by advance,
