That is likely the 64-bit Windows 7 issue.

Option 1 - Uninstall NC topo.  Download 'My trails ....'     With MapSource closed, install 'My trails ....'.     With MapSource closed, install NC topo.  Open MapSource - both mapsets should be available for selection.

Option 2 - Uninstall NC topo.  Download the 32-bit version which was just uploaded to replace the 64-bit version.

When a mapset using a 32-bit installer is the first one installed, mapsets using a 64-bit installer will then install properly.

See the following:
Option 2 - Uninstall NC topo.  Download the 32-bit version which was just uploaded to replace the 64-bit version.

The PC version of NC topo now available for download is the 32-bit version - there is no longer a version using the 64-bit installer available for download.
The 'My trails ....' mapset is a small mapset which you might find useful and uses a 32-bit installer.  It covers most States and can be found by searching for available mapsets for a State.

I don't understand this sentence.  What worked and what didn't?  And does "wizard" refer to the installer, or something else?

Also, the version of MapSource (or BaseCamp) really matters.  What version are you using?

Post by: charlessteve01 on February 28, 2012, 09:01:01 PM

-i dont know-say it could be the mapsource version huh?
No, that's the latest version.  Some people can't get maps to load with older versions, but that's not your problem.

I errored and recreated the mapsets using the installer script with the Windows 7 64-bit issue.

Uninstall NC topo.
Download and install "My trails ....  '(17Mb)  http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/53
Then install NC topo
Then start MapSource - note: it only checks for mapsets when it is started/opened
