1) So the trick was to load the file that sets the keys in the registry for 64 bit Win 7.  Thank you very much.  It did the trick.
2) The file that I could not find an .exe file in was: 'WA_USGS_OSM.gmap' .  There was another file for Wa that did install correctly, so I'll just avoid anything that doesn't appear to have an installer.

I read the tutorials, downloaded the software, downloaded the map files, and made a reasonable attempt to install the files.  Basecamp found the Idaho maps, but it did not find the Oregon or Washington files, and the tutorial indicated that I needed to download a couple programs to convert the img files, but the links to one of the files (cgpsmapper) is an internet dead-end.  It's pretty cool that folks are attempting to provide free maps, but why is it so difficult to use them?  I'm not a total software idiot, and am capable of writing some fairly complicated apps in VBA.  The tutorials suggest it's just a click or two to get them loaded, but is this really something you need to spend an afternoon trying to figure out?
