However I went on hols to Spain last week and tried to get it to work but no joy - I assumed I wasn't able to get the data connection with the roaming provider I was using.
But now I'm back in the UK, I'm still getting the same error message:
'This program requires a data connection. Please contact your carrier, or visit www.google.com/gmm/configure.html on your computer for more info.
(Error:wininetHttpError [0 12002])'
Grateful for any help, thoughts or advice
