My software is not quite the same; I have win2k, WinAPRS2.5.1, and PM3.0.  I 
have the PM3.0 files copied into a directory I created, e:\PMAP30.  PM does not 
need to be installed.  So the PMAP30 directory has subdirectories such as DATA1, 
DATA2, etc. which come right off the CDROM.  Also, I downloaded the ocx for PM 
and Winaprs from where I got the Winaprs.  When the download ocx installation 
file was run, it installed MAPOCX.OCX into my c:\WINDOWS\system32\ directory. 
Once I started up WinAPRS I needed to tell it (from button on right side of 
screen for PMAP properties) to find PMAP data on the e: drive.  It all works 
fine.  The doc for Winaprs has more info on PMAP usage.  Again, my versions of 
PMAP and WinAPRS are different but hopefully this helps.

Look for me in Chesterfield, MO.  I also run xastir and aprsdos.
