Google Earth Problems.

By skitzo_zac

  1. Well Google Earth was working prefectly fine on my system before and then one day it decided to stop working. Then I got an email from google saying that my subsciption had run out (have a google earth plus subscription) and well I renewed that hoping that it would solve my problem. I got an email with my new liscence key and downloaded google earth from the email containing the liscence key and I installed it. When I run the application it comes up with initiallizing google earth or whatever then just freezes. Does anyone know how to overcome this issue?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Try removing, then reinstalling Google Earth. Take the time to write down all the code in About Google Earth before you do, so you can reinstall it properly when done.

    I had a vaguely similar problem - Google Earth would load but froze when zooming and panning to a chosen location.

    The solution was to change the settings in "Options" for the graphics mode from Open GL to Direct X.
