    Click Tools>GPS>Configure GPS Receiver. I clicked OK and then Tools>GPS Task Pane. Check the start GPS Tracking box. When I closed the GPS task pane, the GPS Sensor box popped up.

    I know my gps receiver really is one of those don't plug in until it says so things. I think that happened to me, but it was because I just plugged it in and then started the install.

    Remove it all, and then start the install, and then when it says plug it in, plug it in! I think that is the only device where I have had to listen to their suggestions. Usually I just rebel and plug it in when I feel like it!

    I have even trained my wife now. When I am out and not near a computer she checks it for me at midnight and then calls to tell me what it is. She has also been trained to automatically click the I want one button and change the quantity to 3 if she sees the Bag 'O Crap. LOL
