Did you have to do anything special to get it working?

Question

For clarification, do you mean II . . . or did you mean to type SPIII?

FWIW, on Garmin's website they state that Mapsource works with Windows Vista.

Had the same problem, called Garmin Support it seems there is a file that should be in the Windows System directory that's missing but is included on the Mapsource CD. Don't remember the file name, call Garmin Tech Support they are excellent.
