mapsource not recognizing maps
« on: January 07, 2012, 08:36:20 AM »
I got a new computer with windows 7.
I installed Mapsource.
Now when I down load and execute a map from GPSFileDepot mapsource does not recognize them.
Does anyone have any idea what I am doing wrong?

If you were using my State Topos uploaded in May & June, 2011, it is the 64-bit installer issue.
Uninstall each (save the original downloaded .exe files)
Download and install 'My trails ...' - it uses a 32-bit installer.
Then install the State Topo(s).
Then open MapSource.  MS only checks for mapsets when it is started.
