At least for me, the problem has been that I did not have anything but a Win2000 machine to play with.  I have tried it on my XP Pro laptop, but am having problems getting it to recognize the maps.  I'll play some more when I have a chance. 

What attracted me to SCS is that I like using the DOS Maps for general SA (Situational Awarness) and only use the the APRS+SA maps when I need detailed position or navigational data.
