    Hello;
    After I got my HP Vista Home Premium notebook I loaded my copy of Streets
    and trips w/GPS 2005 and it worked well until recently. Now it won't load
    and I get a message "Your registry settings for this application were not
    copied correctly. To correct these settings, run setup again for this
    application from the location where you originally installed it".

    The option to run the streets.exe file in Compatibility Mode does not exist
    in the pull down menu.

    I have unloaded it and reloaded 3 times. I have mined the registry deleting
    "streets" and "trips" references and searched the entire drive for any
    reference to those terms and deleted them.

    I realize I can do a total reload and just blow everything away but I really
    don't want to do that.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Thanks;

    Don

  2. Here is a recommendation by Richie J:
    Here is the solution:
    dont let autorun try to start the install. However you chose to do it,
    rather using windows explorer or whatever, get to the point where you are
    viewing the contents of the DVD. From there, here is the path you need to
    follow to get to a different installer which will install the program
    WITHOUT
    admin rights and WITHOUT having to install text to speech seperately. (my
    cdrom/dvd drive is assigned to E: on my machine, yours may differ) Path=
    E:\Streets\MSMap and the file you want to run in the msmap folder is called
    data. It is a
    windows installer package type file a little bigger than 2 megs. This will
    install the program without even messing with the text to speech engine
    (which is already built into windows) and once installed, the program will
    run fine.

    Well, I admit my reply won't help you much, but I've got Streets and Trips
    (without GPS) running on two Vista boxes here without issue.

    Do you have a system restore point after the S&T install but before your
    current problem?
