I have downloaded the Former World Trade Center in New York kml file twice, and both times when I try to open it, GE crashes.

Downloading from here:

http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile662/The-former-World-Trade-Center-in-New-York.htm

This is the filename:

Mickey_The_former_World_Trade_Center_in_New_York_[46888].kml

Any suggestions? I have the latest version of GE.

Thanks!

It works fine for me here, it might have something to do with your video card or your settings.. if you use OpenGL mode, try DirectX... if you use DirectX, try OpenGL :)

If that doesnt work please supply more specific technical details about your computer/video card..

Glad to hear it works for you :D DirectX is the better mode anyway, zooming is much smoother :)

All depends on what graphics card you have. Nvidia cards run better on Open GL. But mines a screwball Nvidia card. It crashes when I try to run on Open GL.
