  2. Hi Michael,

    You may need to ask Lowrance about the problem. As per their website,
    MapCreate has many compatibility issues with Vista. MaCreate 7 does not run
    at all on Vista, so don't bother upgrading from version 6, just yet!

    As a first stab ... try turning on Compatibility mode for MapCreate.
    Highlight the MapCreate icon in the Start menu, then right-click and choose
    Properties from the context menu. Select the Compatibility tab. Click the
    check box to trun on Comaptibility mode, and select a suitable version from
    the dropdown list - say, Windows 95.

    Hope it helps,

    I've talked to Lowrance Tech and tryed their patch which included what you
    recommended and it still has the same error dvd does lockup when
    I try to enguage the startup.exe.

  4. Is there any additonal information in the Runtme error? Like an error code
    (0xC0000005) or similar?

    Or, go to Control Panel, System and Maintenance, Problem Reports and
    Solutions. Under Problem History, you may find more detailed information
    about the crash. The info might not be very meaningful to and end-user, but
    it might help support specialists identify the problem.

    You might also need to use Compatibility Mode to run the Startup.exe from
    the DVD, itself - right-click the EXE file in Explorer and configure
    compatibility, as described earlier.

    Beyond that ... sorry, I dunno. It's the kind of problem which could be
    easily debugged by a computer technician sitting in front of the machine,
    but very difficult to solve via newsgroup support. You may need to push
    Lowrance a bit harder for an answer.

    Hope it helps a little bit,
