Help - Maps Empty KML File
Feb 07, 2017, 17:51
Just installed google earth on my new laptop (Windows 10) and then tried to install the KML file from the MAP section only for it to return the following message:
'No Results - Empty KML File'
I have tried to re-download the file a number of times and even tried to put it on my old work laptop (running Windows 7) only to find the same result.

As this has always worked in the past i think its either something I am (not) doing or there really is something wrong with the file.

Any ideas?

Hi Scubi,

It's not you or your new laptop, it's the file. I've just downloaded it onto my mac and it says the same when I try to open it in GE.
Needs sorting out by whoever does that stuff here.

Hi Ed's, sorry for pushing this but it doesn't look like this has been resolved yet!

Not sure how long this has been like this but does anybody have an older working KML file they could send me so I could import into GE for now?

Cheers

I think I only have the mac one unfortunately. Will double check tonight though.

Do you happen to have an iphone? Until the kml is fixed you could try the Meg portal app. It's well worth getting.

Thanks EGD, I only have an old Imac! Would it work on that? (I am not very computer savvy but willing to try anything).

Cheers

Hi Thelonious,

So when I open the link it opens google maps but there isn't any sites on it (?).
I click on the three dots and download the KML.
It gives me two options before before saying ok and downloading. (I have download with each option ticked).
When I click on the downloaded file it open GE but there are no sites.
So in conclusion I dont think it worked but I could just be doing it wrong.

I would be very happy with a file that is a little only as most of the well known sites would still be on it which is a start.

Cheers

Chris
