I have been trying to switch over to Tiger maps from Pmap and seem to be
having problems. I have downloaded the county files for  Virginia and
unzipped them. Now when I run the new Winaprs it starts processing them
and will get to a point and stop. It reports a error at a certain line
number and says the program must quit. I went back and downloaded the file
again and it still says the same thing. Anyone got any ideas what might be
going on? Thanks << John
