    I recommend getting the latest version of Global Mapper 16.2.  If the problem persists, please send a description of your workflow and the error message along with the shapefile you are trying to load to Blue Marble Geographics Support (  This will ensure that the support team sees the problem and you get a timely response.

    Global Mapper download link (you will need to scroll down a bit to get Global Mapper 16):
