    Exactly Mickz I have both licenced versions, It makes me wonder why companies don't pick up the signals from consumers and continue the program development especially since they already have the code and just need to modify every once in a while. I see it with so many software companies. I think I have PhilG fixed up. Hope your feeling better Mickz! SNO

    Thank you very much to all 3 of you.

    I didn't realize my disdain for Garmin support was so prevalent with others.

    SNO has helped me out immensely.

    Mickz, reading what you have explained there, if Garmin truly doesn't give a flying f... about GMPC, they could have offered up a patch to make the software work for those owners that want to continue using it....but they have another plan...

    I can hear them in the boardroom now "people love our software, they are hooked! We will wipe GMPC off the planet & they will be forced to buy one of our hardware units which me make so much more money on!!" (lightning strikes, thunder cracks, and everyone around the table laughs with that sinister smile" Ok, I know, I gotta stop watching those B rated thrillers, sorry....

    All laughing aside, thanks again, I'm sure I will be up and running soon.

    Thanks SNO, it's been a slow road and still not there yet. Another month and I'll know one way or the other how things are going to pan out.

    AARGH. I'm just about to reformat the HD in my laptop and was searching for the .70 update for GMPC, good thing I ran into this thread!

    ... I'll be reinstalling on the same hardware but because I have a touchscreen laptop, I'm debating whether to do Windows 8 or just retain my 7. From what I gather, if I stay with 7 and keep that file, my activation is 'retained.' .. do you know if it works if I bump up the OS? .... thanks!

    If you want to use win8, then give it a try. Maybe make a backup image of your setup now and if it doesn't work out just go back to that image. Also there are ways around the problem should it not work out. Give it a try. I will try to help if you need it after you try.Good luck SNO
