Title: Downloaded and installed IbycusUSA2 and installed but it won't run
Post by: 777nnn on August 09, 2009, 02:52:53 PM
I downloaded and installed IbycusUSA2 and installed it, but it won't run.  In the IbycusUSA2 folder on my computer there are only icons that look like little pages with 6 tiny icons on each.


Motherboard: Elite Group ECS P4M900T-M2, socket 775, supports 4 Gigs RAM, accommodates two DDR2 unbuffered DIMMS

I downloaded IbycusUSA2. I ran the install twice and each time when I open the folder of the program and click on anything I get the message:"Widows cannot open this file. To open this file, Windows needs to know what program created it." And it gives two options to either choose from a list of programs or connect to the internet to find the appropriate program. Everything in the folder of the program is a picture of a sheet of paper with six tiny icons. Thanks for any replies.

The installer installs the mapset into MapSource. You need to have MapSource installed on your PC, install the mapset, then open MapSource and you map will be there. Windows does not open only of the installed map files on it's own.
