Problem to update Garmin Express from within - INSTRUCTIONS !

 

Well totally by accident I discovered why I was having problems to update Garmin Express from within the program. It would go so far and message me that it did not install.

The secret I found for that is to do the following !

Got to C:/Users/your name?/AppData/Local/Temp/

Notice the slash is wrong but that is because POIfactory will not allow backward slashes.

Now in the TEMP folder delete everything, all files, PERIOD !!!

This will now let you download GE without a problem. I had been fighting this problem for 2-3 years and no one had the solution for it.

Slash this!

Yes indeed, they're not allowed twisted

If only we could type a \

C:\Users\your name?\AppData\Local\Temp\

The trick: without the spaces, type & # 92 ; instead of the backslash character on your keyboard. That is five characters starting with the & and ending with the ;
PS: I congratulate you. You obviously preview your comments before posting and realize you lost some characters when they included backslashes. I and others have overlooked this once or twice and we end up with a very confusing slashless phrase that further confuses the matter. Thumbs up to you.

Excellent info

Excellent info. Thanks. :}
