Can't run the 2013 Trial Version of MapPoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello -

    I downloaded MapPoint trial 2013 and it is not a recognized file.  When I click it, I get the dialog box asking me what program I want to run it with. 

    Also, it does not show up in my menu or on my desktop.

    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

  • The file I downloaded did not have an exe at the end.  I simply renamed it, adding ".exe" (without the quotes) at the end.  Problem solved!

  • Great! Yeah, I've seen several people have the same issue.

    I was surprised when I first realized people just need to rename the file to have the .Exe extension, I think I was on the phone with somebody and I recommended they try it.

    I will have to download the trial to see if it does the same thing for me, or maybe it does does that for a particular OS or browser? What browser and version of Windows are you using?
