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.

everything went smooth wizard and all-went straight back to mapsource-got the grid screen-same as before i downloaded map
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?

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
