Can't transfer explorer online map to desktop explorer with multiple layers.

Discussion created by TraditionGroup on Oct 10, 2012
I am trying to get an online explorer map to the desktop explorer.  I have tried several times, and its not working.

I can get a base map to transfer to the desktop.  Then I try and add the layers from explorer online to desktop explorer from a downloaded file and it gives me an error "Failed to add Layer Package(s): (invalid file).  I have renamed files and tried several times. I have read all of the help files and don't think I am doing anything wrong.  Can someone please help with steps or ideas?
