I found the problem I was running ACL Ver. 6.4. I upgraded to ACL Ver. 6.6 and the countries download worked fine. Good question to ask dummies like me; 'What is your ACL version?'.
By the way, without a Microsoft update ID (KB.....) it is almost impossible to find out whether an update is installed. At least almost impossible for me.
Thanks for your help.
