    I've got a Macbook Pro (Sierra, v. 10.12.6) and, for about a week, when using Basecamp, I cannot get GE to open using "View > View Current Map Area in Google Earth" tool. I killed both programs and reinstalled but it didn't work.

    Any ideas?

    No ideas here. I have a 2016 15" MacBook Pro running Sierra (10.12.6) and just tried viewing the map area in Google Earth. It worked fine.

    Thanks, Fastman. I've got a Macbook Air and it's working fine on that machine. I dunno.

    Dang, that's not encouraging. Sorry you're having problems, too.

    I thought that I read somewhere that Google wasn't supporting it any longer...

    Yeah, that was the rumor some time ago. It works on my Macbook Air, though. Ah, well, it's certainly no deal killer but it was pretty convenient.

    We've been having the same issues on Basecamp, as well as Mapsource. Keeps saying we have to install Google Earth - even when GE is open. Running different versions of Windows.

    And then every once-in-a-while, it works... WTF

    Squily, I got mine to work one time today and thought, "Got it!" I ain't got it, after all.

    I found those today when trying to fix this issue. I can't find anything about Macs.

    Got it working, again! In Apple's Time Machine, I restored Google Earth back to July 29th. (I back up both Macbook and Macbook Air every Saturday.) That killed the latest, greatest Google Earth and reinstalled v. 1.8.3036 (32-bit). GE now opens from Basecamp.
