LAKE MAPS ON CD ROM QUESTION?

3 posts in this topic

I recently purchased a sportsman's connection cd rom so I could get gps way points then print a map, but when trying to run the darn thing all the letters and words get all streched out, the screen starts to lock up. I've got at least twice the requirements needed to run this thing. Is it possible to have a bad cd? any of you guys tryed this disc?

If you were able to install the software off the CD, you probably don't have a bad CD. Based on what you are saying, you may have a screen resolution issue. Check on the requirements if there is any mention of screen resolution settings. Many applications are developed for a specific monitor resolution setting (e.g. 800x600). You can test this by changing your monitor resolution as follows:

Start->Settings->Control Panel->Display

Click the "Settings" tab

Under the "Screen area" section you can scroll to change the resolution

However, I would recommend registering your software so you can contact their tech support (URL's below). Not only will you be entitled to support, it looks like you also get one major product update for free if you register.

Thanks C.B. I'll try what you said and see how it works, but I'm still not sure if the program down loaded I can't see to find it any where confused.gif

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
