Troubleshooting tips for when the above directions do not work:

  1. Run all Windows updates including updates for Internet Explorer, then retry the steps above.
  2. Follow the steps above but run the script as Administrator because the script makes changes in a restricted location of the registry.

Explanation of how the above script works:

Picasa uses an embedded Internet Explorer browser. The script forces Internet Explorer to run in “compatibility mode.” Since an update in Picasa, the embedded browser in standard mode is no longer compatible with Google Maps (or visa versa).


制作OZI Explorer使用的离线Google地图步骤:

1. 使用Mobile Atlas Creator抓取Google离线地图,生成png文件和map文件。

参考:离线地图,Mobile Atlas Creator 1.9.10才是抓图利器啊!

附Mobile Atlas Creator抓取Google地图和高德地图的xml文件


2. 使用MapOffsetForm程序给map文件纠偏(其实是加偏)


3. (可选)将png转成ozf格式
