  1. I receive an error on conversion attempt! and the Error window is black – there is no message inside.
    What shall I do to correct the problem?

  2. I have not been using this for some time, so there might be prehaps some changes in KML format… anyway I will try to check this soon to sort things out. Thanks for the hint!
