Having upgraded to S&T 2007, I find that GPSBabel is no longer
exporting pushpins and/or stops when converting from S&T (.est) to
GPX XML (.gpx).
If I use "Microsoft AutoRoute 2002 (pin/route reader)" or "Microsoft
Streets and Trips (pin/route reader)" as my input formats, I get
"msroute: Unsupported byte order within data (0).".
If I use "Microsoft Streets and Trips 2002-2006" I get no errors, but
the resulting .gpx file has no waypoint data.
Anybody have any ideas?

Thank you! That worked.
It does leave me with a residual problem - which I suspect is not
really fixable. The resulting conversion places the pins in
alphabetical order, with no regard for their original route order. I
doubt there is anything to be done about that... but let me describe
my situation just in case.
I can name the pins/stops (in Streets and Trips, pre-conversion) with
a numeric prefix which will cause them to be sorted in the route
order, but that has problems as well, because I am converting long,
complicated S&T routes with, in general, 100 to 1000 stops. They are
"living" routes, by which I mean that they are continuously being
worked on and evolving, so a sortable prefix would necessitate
renaming all the later stops.
Also, in their eventual desitination of a GPS, the extra 3 or 4
characters for the sort prefix uses valuable GPS screen real-estate
when displaying the waypoint name.
Sorry for the meandering explanation, but if someone has an idea of
how I can use gpsbabel to accomplish what I am trying to do between
S&T and Garmin I would be very grateful.

Microsoft changed the file format in 2007 editions. The next release
of GPSBabel adds support for the 2007 strain.
