Help!

I have succesfully downloaded the setup application "TomTomHomewinlatest WinLatest.exe" but the application will not run. (No error message, no response on clicking "run".

I am attempting to install "Home" on a PC running XP.

Has anyone out there experienced this? (I suspect it may be a PC problem, rather than an issue with the TomTom application)

    I tried this with no success.

    I discovered that I was having problems with other devices; and having replaced a defective PC component and carrying out another clean reinstall, I have successfully downloaded TT Home.

    Many thanks!

    Hi,

     

    Maybe it is your antivirus. You can try to disable it and run the program again.

     

    On XP it's vey important that the NetFramework from Microsoft is up-to-date. I sent you the link before, did you install it?

     

    Home usually works very well on XP.

     

    Cheers

    Hi

    I did download NetFramework as suggested, without success. As per previous, I am pretty convinced that the problem was wirth the PC, rather than with the downloader or download.

    Many thanks

    The fact that this appears not to be something of a common problem is interesting. Perhaps someone "out there" who is a computer fiend might be able to offer advice. I wonder if there is something in the TTH programme that remains in the PC's system if it is uninstalled (or simply disappears; and that this prevents a re-install? If so, is it possible that the download could be rewritten to overcome this problem?

    Okay, I found a solution! I found an older version of TTH on another website and downloaded this one. No problems with installing it. After the installation was finished, I got a message from TTH that there was an update and I could download and install this one without any problems. Strange but I'm glad I could finally update my maps!

    Oh dear. Here we go again! I have lost TTH. The download application file from the TomTom site downloaded succesfully; but will not run.

    Sorry, can't remember where I found it but I just Googled 'Tom tom home download' and you'll find loads of downloads you can try to get it to work (as long as it's not the version on the official website since that one obviously didn't work for my pc). I also mailed Tom tom that the one on their page didn't work and they sent me another link to try, I had solved my problems by then but you can try that as well. They responded within a day. Good luck!
