Garmin 24K TOPO install

Post by dmb1319 » Mon Dec 31, 2018 4:30 am

A friend has the 24K TOPO for the Southwest on DVD, no longer available.
He got a new laptop that has Windows 10 installed.
He had problems installing the 24K TOPO so asked for help.

Initially, we were prompted to install the .net framework before the TOPO install could proceed. We clicked 'Next' to begin. The problem is, the license agreement dialog is hidden. We can use the Alt-Tab or Windows key-Tab keystroke functions to cycle through open windows. When we do, we can clearly see the license agreement dialog window. But when we try to select it, the previous dialog with the 'Next" option appears. We were unable to agree to the license terms and install .net framework.

I tried going to https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/d ... rk-runtime and downloading/installing .net 4.7.2. But when we tried to install the TOPO again we had the same problem. I have Windows 10 on this desktop and had no problem installing the 24K TOPO from my DVD.

If anyone has any idea how to overcome this so we can install his TOPO, I would be grateful for an assist.

Does the Map Installer request a specific .net framework?

Maybe try with the oldest .net version listed at the page you linked to (v3.5) and reboot (you did reboot after installing, right?) then try again?

I see the current download version requires v4.5 or newer.

Maybe it is a problem with the older installer package bundled with the DVD?

It may be NLA on DVD, but Garmin should be able to help if called.

It's been a day or two since we tried this. Somewhere in the research I did later I thought I may have seen something about it requiring .net 3.5. It seemed strange to me that version 4.7.2 would not have been a "roll up" of previous versions updated to the most current version. But what do I know, I'm not a programmer!

I'll try to reach him tomorrow and see if version 3.5 will help.

Actually, I wondered if it was the .net framework since that dialog box was obscured. I wondered if it may be a display setting. There are too many things it COULD be. There's always booting into SAFE mode and trying the install also. I hoped someone here would know. I usually have MUCH better luck here than with Garmin! But if push comes to shove.....

Thanks for the ideas!

Update 10 Jan 2019
We re-started the (WinX) system in safe mode and tried installing the 24K TOPO. We managed to get TO the License agreement dialog in Safe Mode so I will GUESS the problem was a video driver. However, the backup disc we were using had an unknown (read on). When that failed - .NET still not installed - we rebooted normally and tried installing .NET framework version 3.5. When this installed we re-tried and (now) did not see the .NET dialog. It proceeded straight to map install. This is where we got a bad sector message. Since this was a backup disc, we'll retry from another backup. There were no noticeable marks on the disc.

We DID however, manage a good installation of the Garmin 100K TOPO. So, hopefully, we've resolved the issue by installing .NET Framework version 3.5. If all ealse fails, we'll install the 24K TOPO from a USB drive.
