Pls refer to:

But you need to find the latest Mapsource installation file.

MapSource will check Windows registry for any present of maps. This trick might work. You can have a try !
  1. Download & install MSM maps from http://www.malsingmaps.com/forums/viewt ... 26&t=18753.
  2. Unpack or extract the content of MapSource installer (the one with *.exe) using WinRar or 7zip (if I'm not mistaken).
  3. From the extracted files, run MAIN.msi or MSMAIN.msi.
  4. Then, run Setup.exe.
Note: The sequence to execute Main.msi and then Setup.exe is important to avoid “Previous MapSource not found!” error.

Unless really necessary, it's better to stay at v6.15.7. :-'
