Good morning all you happy travellers, and a very Happy Easter to you all. Now that the pleasantries are out of the way down to business, I have just brought a new laptop with windows 8 on it and a few other bits and pieces, I have been wondering if any of you that have the windows8 if you have had success in putting the Hemma maps on it. I have never done anything like this before so any information would be appreciated. I still need to buy the maps so I thought I would ask first.

Hi Broodie.

When you purchase the maps they will each be represented by two files; one with a .map extn, the other with an .ozf2 extn. They are just another file/s such as .jpegs. You just need to create a folder under the Windows Documents structure to put the files in.

You will need to buy/load OziEx to be able to view them.

Cheers.

Hello JB

Not sure of current situation but don't some Hema map products come with OziExplorer Lite? Hema Navigators come with Hema Navigator Explorer (modified version of Ozi Lite).

Either way its not the maps that may be the problem but the program used to view the maps. While I wouldn't bet my life on it (unless some money was offered:), I think OziExplorer (most popular program used to view Hema digital maps ) in all its variations, will work fine on Windows 8, but that just an "educated" guess.

Cheers

Fair point Greg.

I'm running Windows 7 and all's OK with my HEMA's.

But note from the Ozi website...

"A PC running Windows 95/98/ME/NT4/2000/XP/Vista/7 (both 32 bit and 64 bit versions) /Windows 7 Starter/8 and 8 Pro"

Cheers.

I'm running OziExplorer on Windows 8 without any problems. I loaded my original version( 2005) from CD then upgraded to the latest. Map Merge, Screen Designer also work fine.
