Installed 2 new hard drives in my home PC. Got everything running great. Boot disk was auto formatted as E, I guess due to some remnant in the BIOS or virtual drive letter assignments or whatever. Who cares.
Getting everything installed, auto backups rolling good, etc.
Try to load Mapsource City Navigator NT V8. Will not install, must have a C drive on your computer. Doesn't have to load to C, but must have one
I would love to meet the archaic moron at Garmin that thought this one up
This has to be an effort to prevent some kind of piracy. I have never heard of any other software set up like this.
I have fired off a support e-mail to Garmin. Will see what the response is.
I know I can change the drive letter, repartition, etc, etc. Not doing it. Just bought 2 huge drives to keep from partitioning. Besides, once everything is mapped and you start remapping, etc fragmentation occurs and system performance starts to drop. I'm not changing for Garmin. Never have liked Mapsource anyway. It's clunky, not powerful.
Soooo, anyone have a work around?
I saw where one guy hacked the installer to change the install routine, I am not capable of that.
The 3 Garmin units we have may find their way to Ebay and we'll get something else.
