rdickinson Posted January 11, 2017 Report Share Posted January 11, 2017 This could be posted elsewhere but I know several use it. The newest upgrade or update to a version 16, I believe is not compatible with the GPS receiver. The screen goes blue and locks up. This cost me a 24 hr delay while a fix was found. So here is what I had to do. Get a second but older computer with Windows 7 or 8 Gut EVERYTHING out. Make a copy complete with the key from my other laptop Load it into the new old computer Get the Toshiba roller trackball mouse and the remote speaker to work with new old computer Get GPS receiver to work with new old computer. If anyone is having this issue, this is the fix. MS&T will work on versions prior to the newest one. If the computer updates itself, this has already happened, if you update manually it will occur then. If you still want to use MS&T but don't have the key, I have made a copy on a thumbdrive and can make a another and send to you or the contact info can be provided for the Computer firm in Seaside Oregon and he can put the full meal deal together for you and ship it anywhere you want. It cost me 150$, not bad. That includes the computer. So this topic can stay here or the Modulators can shift it to a Tech topic elsewhere. Anyway's, I'm up and running, with the laptop on the dreaded laptop stand that is going nowhere in the near future. It is the Microsoft GPS puck that is causing the problem. As soon as you plug it in, POOF. Let me know if you need the program, you can have it for nothing, just pay for the thumbdrive later.. Gotta go.
