Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I am trying to edit some data and I am getting the following error message upon hitting the edit tab:

"Editing failed - make sure JOSM or Merkaartor is loaded and the remote control option is enabled".

I have Merkaartor v0.18.2-64bit loaded, but not sure how or where, to enable the 'remote control option'. The operating system used is Windows 7 Enterprise.

Please EDIT your question and give us information what version of Merkaartor you have installed in detail, and what operating system is present?

I would suggest trying using http (non-encrypted) instead of the normal https version of openstreetmap.org.

Go to Merkaartor TOOLS/PREFERENCES/NETWORK and click Enable JOSM-compatible local server on port 8111. Then go to your osm page and click Edit with Remote Control
