MAPSOURCE update problem


HOGCAT

Recommended Posts

I surly hope someone can help me out. When I try to update Mapsource, it comes up in a window that says (unable to find change description file) but ti gives an option to ignore this and download anyway. When I do that a small black screen pops up and says "the NTVDM has encounted an illegal instruction"!!!!

Any ideas??? What would happen if I removed the whole program and reinstall it????

Trid time posting the same info, I wonder if you tried search first?

What OS are you running on your computer? The newer updates no longer work with Windows XP. I have Windows XP on my desk top and could not update MapSource. However, I have Windows Vista on my lap top and it updated just fine.

Thanks mach2003, the link worked and downloaded fine. I am running XP and it downloaded fine. I tried the "search" function and got pages and pages of info. Felt like asking was easier for me, and it worked. Next time I will read all the pages first for a few hours before I "just ask". :lol:

I'll have to try running it at home. I know when I tried to update my desk top I'd get a window to open, then everything would stall. I closed the window and went to Garmin's web site and saw that the following about 6.12.3;

 

Notes:

 

WARNING: This software will not work unless you already own a MapSource product.

This version of MapSource no longer supports Windows 98, Windows Me, and Windows NT.

Works with Windows Vista.

 

Duh....after posting I see that XP is not listed as not being supported. I'll have to try the link above, maybe that was my problem.

Had the same problem so I went to the Garmin website and just downloaded the whole thing. It was like 48Mb versus the 4 or 5 MB that the update was. No big deal on a broadband connection. After it downloaded the update ran fine.

 

Used the link to update MapSource on my desktop Windows XP computer last night without any problems. For some reason when I had tried to update it using the "check for updates" in MapSource it would stall.

 

All good now.
