Hello all and merry christmas/new year etc.

I have recently bought a new laptop with Vista to replace the old xp machine.

On attempting to load my natmap set (2003 version) i keep getting error messages for internet explorer.

I suspect that the ie version of the disks does not like the newer version installed.
Any ideas ?, Or do i just bite the bullet and replace the whole set.

Have you tried running it in Compatibility mode for an earlier version of windows. I had to run the installer in compatibility mode to get 2005 version to run in Win 7

You'll get old too waiting for me to be carted off. I am afraid you are stuck with me for a while yet. Any more comments like that and I'll have to have a talk with your missus...:-)

Rather than post "Google it" to get a likely answer straight up ( and get shot down for that), i thought i'd be helpful today. ;)

If you are using IE7 which i believe Vista may ship with as standard then there is a patch to fix a compatability issue with natmap 2003. Details of it and the download patch can be found here ==> http://www.ga.gov.au/nmd/products/maps/raster250k/help/helptrouble.jsp

Hope that helps.

thanks all for your suggestions. And a whole quicker than i expected !!

I should have said this earlier. The wacky thing is that on starting Natmap raster viewer (under iexplorer) the error message is that it can't find "iexplore.exe" yet internet explorer runs fine.

Might be just another of the wierd microsoft things. The install actually seems fine
but it just won't run.

Ah well, i might just have to buy the new set with Hema maps as well.

Only a computer system does not have repairs after 3 years, at least landrover, nissan and toyotas keep being repaired after 40+ years.

Hi
You can still view the (ecw) images with other software such as OziExplorer, Trackranger, CompeGps Land, GlobalMapper etc etc and the free ERviewer even if you dont get the natmap viewer to work.

If you buy the Hema Mapset I think you get OziExplorer Lite (?)..not the Natmap Viewer anyway..though maps will be more current so thats a bonus.

Cheers

ah. great news Greg.

The advantage is in using the gazzetteer index to find places and then relate them to the map.

I suppose i need to learn how to index the natamps place names in Oziexplorer.

I might try the erviewer.

Thanks Greg.

Hi
An OziExplorer Name Search database can be downloaded by clicking here

OziExplorer Aus Name Search Database download (7mb)

and another oen here (not sure how thay comapre

Another OziE Aus Name Search Database download

Some more OziE name search databases here

Australian Oziexplorer NameSearch Streets and Facilities

OziExplorer is far more versatile than the NatMap viewer. I have never bothered to even to load Natmap viewer. ErViewer is Ok but has limited functions - good for cropping ecw images I find.

Cheers
