Nice to Know – Download Maps Manager (MapBroker) is annoying, very annoying

Posted by Mikael Nystrom on April 25, 2017

Sometimes you need to run the full UI of Windows Server 2016 and when you do you get the extremely annoying Download Maps Manager error in Server Manager. First of all, you don’t need it, and even if you did need it, it does not work anyway. So, what to do then? Disable it using PowerShell or use GPO’s


Download Maps Manager MapBroker Stopped Automatic (Delayed Start)



Use PowerShell:

Get-Service -Name MapsBroker | Set-Service -StartupType Disabled -Confirm:$false


Use GPO:

Create a policy, configure it to affect all Windows Server 2016, set the Download Maps Manager to Disabled, save, done

  1. Thanks for that. I’ve been noticing that pop-up too. Very helpful to know the direct path to the fix.

    You can also just go into services.msc and set the startup type to disabled from in there as well.
