I have a PC3 installed on my Vista laptop that is not cooperating. I previously had the software installed on an XP laptop with no issues.

I had to download the software from the Power Commander website and decided to download a couple maps after. My problem is when I try to open the map files, it doesn't show any maps available to upload. I believe this is because the files are in my computer as exe instead of djm files. When I try to plug the unit into the computer(via USB-with ignition on), I don't have communication between the PC and the laptop.

I have sent an email to power commander without response. I appreciate any knowledge that can be sent my way.

Double click the .exe map file and it will ask you where to extract it to. Extracts as .djm

Problem solved.

Problem solved.
I double clicked and it says to unzip all files in Yosh map.exe to the specified folder press the Unzip button. I tried to add a .djm extension and unzipping the file as is with no success. I will fiddle around with it a little more. Vista is stubborn!!!

From your first post you are having 2 issues.
1. Extracting the files from the exe-do as Venlaren said, just click unzip. You don't need to change anything. The files will extract with the djm extension to the folder selected.
2. Communication between the PC and laptop-since you are using Vista you may need to Disable Driver Signature Enforcement. I can't remember if I had to do this the last time that I connected to my PCIII, but it's worth a try. Also, make sure that the USB cable is fully seated in the PC and the laptop.

Thanks for the advise guys. I tried saying that I unzipped it as advised, and the PC software is still not finding the map. I know it's got to be something simple, so I will keep messing around with it.

As for the other problem, I appreciate the help. I will try that as soon as I get home tomorrow. It's supposed to be around 80 degrees.
