Google Earth

Since I updated to the latest version of Google Earth (, Street View fails to work.

Whenever I drag the little orange icon to a place on the map it goes to ground level view rather than street view.

Am I dong something wrong or is there a setting I need to alter?

O/S is Win 7.

Usually if it switches to ground view then there is no street view available for that area.

I gave up on google earth and do it all from google maps now.

I know that street view is available for the area.

It's the area I live in and street view has always been available in previous versions!

I am sure you will have updated your graphics drivers, but I had a similar problem a while ago and it seemed to do the trick.

That version Is working OK on XP. The only difference is that there are no grey ovals to move forward on. Just have to click ahead on the road. I haven't changed any settings.

Does it state 'street view' top right after you have dropped the man?
