Don't buy if on Win 7 SP1,
This review is from: Microsoft Autoroute Europe 2011 (PC) (CD-ROM)
Microsoft's Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 broke its mapping products (Autoroute and Streets and Tips). I have been an Autoroute user for years and years and have been very happy with it. I purchased Autoroute 2011 in January 2011 but when Win 7 Service pack 1 came down a few months later it broke it (Hangs at the splash screen - see <...> ). They basically broke in Q1 2011 but it is still broken and no signs of a fix. So my recommednation is DON'T BUY IT if you are on Windows 7 or are planning to upgrade because as soon as SP1 downloads it will break. I just got my money back from Microsoft. If you must consider it then check out the knowledge base first 2618410 first - MS told me they would publish the fix there. That was months ago, no fix yet!

Mr. Peter Crosland says:
The solution is to uninstall Net Framework Extender, Net Framework and the Visual C++ redistributable in that order. Then reboot the machine and the install will work. Then run Windows Update to install the various updates. Sorted!
