Earlier in your post you told me this:

"Then you can download the map from HERE, unzip it then run the exe file. That's it."

How to unzip it?

Thanks!

Is there any member staying in Port Klang where I can ask his assistance to install correctly in my PC so that I can see the map?

Thanks!

Did you installed the Mapsource yet?... Open Mapsource and you can see the MSM Map..

or you can try open the Basecamp..

- Make a Folder in C:\ called Garmin. (C:\Garmin)
- Copy and paste the Mapsource_verXXXXX.exe (any version) into the above folder.
- Copy a file, any file will do into the C:\Garmin folder and rename the file Mapsource.EXE
- Run Mapsource_verXXXXX.exe
- When you click Finish an error will flash on screen. Just ignore it. You have not install any map into Mapsource yet and hence the error prompt.
- Exit Mapsource and install MSM map and restart Mapsource to see your beloved MSM map displayed.
- Done...

Tips:- Mapsource installation looks for the file Mapsource.exe in C:\Garmin if not found it will abort. So, the above copying and renaming is to fools :-$ it to "Think' there is a previous installation of Mapsource in your computer..... :)

Mapsource Download link: http://www8.garmin.com/software/MapSource_6163.exe
