Why do I keep getting a Download Error when trying to view a 3D map?

- When Google Earth automatically updates it sometimes reset the file associations in Windows. We’ve found this problem especially true when installing Google Sky. You should get an error similar to below.




To fix this problem:

- Open My Computer and under Tools select Folder Options.



- Select the File Types tab and scroll down to KML and KMZ.



- It may already show “Opens with Google Earth” however it is not functioning properly since the update. There are 2 possible ways to fix this problem.
1. If there is a “Restore” button - click it. Then verify 3D mapping is working.
2. Otherwise, click “Change” and re-select Google Earth. If Google Earth is not in the list you may have to Browse to find it. (Program Files/Google/Google Earth).
