    I suffered a hard drive crash, had to get a new harddrive and reload all my software from scratch.

    I'm a very fond user of Mapsource (yes, I know it's been superceded by base camp) but I still wanna use it at least for a while.

    I have long (berfoer now) enjoyed the 'view in google earth' popup under 'view' but now it is darkened and no longer will permit me to view any sort of mapsource stuff, whether route, track, or waypoint, in GE.

    I've searched for GE updates and have found that I am up to date.

    How to fix, and many thanks to anyone who knows . . . .

    Sounds like when you re-installed something didn't link correctly. I would try installing Basecamp & see what happens.

    Did you try uninstall of Mapsource, restart your computer then reinstall Mapsource.

    I doubt this is the problem but just in case.

    I have found that you cannot view things from Mapsource in Google Earth unless you have a waypoint and/or a track and/or a route somewhere in the active file.
