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.

The 32-bit installer version of NC topo has been uploaded.

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