I have discovered that the version loaded from the Google Earth "Pack" is the Google Earth PLUS which cost $20 per annum. All the links show this as a free download. Perhaps it free to download but not to use !!!.
All rather confusing.
I selected the UK option list from the "Pack" and found that Google Earth is not on the list !
Can anybody please give me the URL to locate a standard free version that works in the UK.
I am making progress, if rather slowly.
