I gave that a try and was able to reproduce the problem. It turns out that I
had the max resolution for the UrbanArea WMS layer too low, resulting in
errors downloading the tiles and exposing another bug that caused an
infinite loop in this case. I have fixed this problem and placed a new build
which I have verified can
export the UrbanArea WMS layer to a Global Mapper Package file.
Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

I've tried it, and it just seems to hang up TerraServer. I can zoom
in manually down to the proper level of detail, all the USGS logos get
properly cleared but when I try to do the following, I never see a
reply from TerraServer.
Select the WMS USGS Urban layer from TerraServer
Ask for a region 6 miles from 39.75232, -105.32360 (Just west of
I get a proper looking screen.
Change projection to UTM
Export Global Mapper Package File, Gridding 15 X 15, Best Zoom, Use
the UTM projection.
GM Just seems to stop there. Watching the temp files, I see the .tmp
written, 1K of info in it, and nothing further.
My guess is that the max-resolution request is fuddling up TerraServer
somehow. Needless to say, from outside GM I can't see the reply from TS.
I really appreciate all the help in getting me where I need to go with
