Here's the problem. It seems when I look under Control Panel in
Windows 7 I see 4 versions of WSJT-X which has MAP65 embedded in

Hi Roger,

how are you starting WSJT-X?

You can find the version of the installed WSJT-X right-clicking the wsjtx.exe file (by default in C:\WSJT\wsjtx\bin\) then go to "Properties->Details".
