Frequently Asked Questions
2GIS for PC
We recommend the use of the Update Center to update the components of 2GIS (2GIS main menu → Update Center). It will help you to install and update city databases as well as additional plug-ins. When you update 2GIS via the Update Center, you save traffic because it won't download the complete distribution package but only the differences between the installed and the new database release.
The problem appears because Windows Installer service files were deleted from C:\WINDOWS\Installer (hidden folder). This could happen either by mistake or by using dubious programs for the cleaning/optimization of Windows.
We recommend the use of the Windows Installer CleanUp utility program, with which you can delete the information about the required file from Windows Installer: Start → Programs → Windows Installer CleanUP → Click the necessary 2GIS component → Remove.
After that, you can reinstall the database.
You can delete city databases via the program interface. To do it, start 2GIS, open Update Center, select the city you want to delete and click the red [x] next to the name of the city.
The problem may be in a virus on the computer. We recommend updating the antivirus program and scanning all disks. If you have no antivirus program on your computer, you can download a free Avira AntiVir Personal antivirus.
