Topo 2008 and Windows Vista

Recommended Posts

I just got off the phone with Garmin tech support, and I thought I'd pass along some issues that Topo 2008 has with Windows Vista, as well as a workaround



I had installed Topo 2008, and it wouldn't launch on my Windows Vista laptop. It turns out that the version of MapSource on the Topo 2008 CD is not the latest version--the version on the CD has issues with Windows Vista. So, you have to download version 6.12.4 from the web site if you are running Windows Vista.


Also, if you are installing on Vista, make sure you do it from the computer's Administrator account, and not just a user account with administrative privileges.
