So new user here. Trying to download map areas. I select a single section or multiple and the GUI displays that it is downloading & never moves beyond that. Never see any progress, never see any files in the \data directory. I do get the below error in the CMD window, not sure if it is related or not.

    Hi Rick,
    Thanks for reaching out. We've had a couple similar reports in the last two days and we're trying to do a little diagnostic, not sure if there's a common underlying issue or if that's just random chance.

    As step 1, I'd like to verify whether the tiles are failing to download, or if they're downloading correctly but the UI is failing to update. Do you see any .mbtiles files in the data\tiles directory (under CalTopo Desktop's install directory)? That's where the tiles are downloaded to.

    No. Only file there is "rolling.sqlite"

    Rick -

    Sorry for the delay. We had several similar reports in short succession and I was hoping to find an underlying cause that I could fix with a code update, but so far that hasn't been the case.

    Can you send the topo.sqlite file from your SARTopo Offline folder me at [email blocked]? Please don't reply to this with it as an attachment, the help forum is dropping messages with .sqlite attachments. Thanks,
