For latest v6.15.7, the file to execute (after extracting) is MSMAIN.msi.

I just updated Mapsource version to 6.15.11 and my V3.08 MYSG and BORNEO maps became basic maps. I tried to use the V3.00 onwards code given to add these 2 maps to the latest version. They are in the Unlock Regions tab and under Properties, the codes are there as well but they are still basic maps. Why is this so? Thanks.

You need to downgrade to v6.15.7, any version above that will not read 3rd party Garmin unlock codes correctly.

Thanks DVPro but I can't seem to find the older version 6.15.7 anywhere.

One feedback i have for the MSM search function is it returns to many unsuccessful search for critical but common words. When I used MAPSOURCE to search, it doesn't return successful attempt for the search.

I tried to remove the old version on both my work and home PCs. At home, the version keeps staying at Version 6.15.11 instead of version 6.15.7. Still seeing the basic map on home PC.

At work, I am seeing an error and removing the old version from Add/Remove Programs for Mapsource does not work and I have sent it out to techsupp@garmin.com as instructed in the error message. Read about it more and seems like 6.15.11 has problem with Service pack 3 or something.
