Mapsource Problem

I previously has MSM installed on my Garmin.

Now, after installing MFM, I cannot launch Mapsource. It says please "reinstall MSM-MySin and try again".

I have tried reinstalling Mapsource but with no luck.

Does anyone know a solution?

Thanks

Chris

You need to delete everything and reinstall again.

Besides deleting / uninstall Mapsource, make sure that Windows registry is cleared of all remains of mapsource else reinstall is useless as problem will remain.

Right-click REG file, and select "Merge". This will import REG file into Windows Registry.

Don't really understand. There isn't merge function after right click...

How about "Import registry" or something similar? Else, start Registry Editor (Start > Run > type REGEDIT), and Import REG file.
