Try installing this map, it uses a different installer program.

So I guess that explains why my Colorado TOPO 2011 map didn't work......

That is a common problem with some older maps here. There was a problem with the standard installer that many mapmakers used in that it didn't create the correct registry keys for Windows 7 64 bit.

However (taking you at your word), that doesn't explain the issue you described in your other thread.

The files that are supposed to be created don't even show on my hard disk - much less basecamp

The installer/registry problem did not prevent the files from being installed on the computer, it just prevented Basecamp from finding the files. That is why I did not suggest this fix, because it sounded like you had a different issue.

Nevermind, I'm an idiot - it is currently beautiful :)

Thanks to the members here for your help - load another map first and load as administrator.

Curious that you say it's the old installer.  I've only used the 32 bit installer, and never had a complaint.
