    Google Maps versus Google Earth


    Google Maps is online only and Google Earth is an application getting data from different places. That's how it was since the beginning.

    Hi Abdul,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing. Let me help you in resolving the issue.

    I would appreciate if you can provide us the following information to help us understand the issue better.

    • What exactly happens when you try to open it?
    • Do you get any error message or error code on the screen?
    There could be several reasons for this cause. I would suggest you to try the steps below and check the result.

    Step 1: Place the computer in clean boot state to avoid any third party software conflict.

    To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    Placing your system in Clean Boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. You need to follow the steps from the article mentioned below to perform a Clean Boot.

    How to perform a clean boot in Windows

    Note: Refer "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting" to reset the computer to start as normal after troubleshooting.

    Step 2: I suggest you to uninstall the Google Earth software version and reinstall the latest Google Earth software in compatibility mode and check, if it works.

    Follow these steps to install the latest Google Earth software in the compatibility mode.

    1. Download the latest Google Earth software version from the Google Earth official website.

    2. Right-click on the setup file and click on "Properties".

    3. Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box "Run this program in compatibility mode” and select previous Operating System from the drop down.

    4. Click on ‘Apply’ and click ‘OK’ and run the file to install it.

    I also suggest you to get in touch with Google Earth support for further assistance on this issue:
