Streets and Trips error: Registry settings not copied correctly
SpadesFlush
That's it.

Nope. Did and uninstall from the CD and then a new install. Nowhere did it ask for the Product Key which I thought was strange. But I'm still getting the same box regarding the registry settings not being copied correctly and the program will not load.

Anymore thoughts?

David, it sounds like there is a problem in the registry that is not resolved by the uninstall.

Looking at the Microsoft technical knowledge base, I see the following article: Error message when you try to use Streets & Trips: "Your registry settings for this application were not copied correctly".

Give that a try; it seems to be specifically on topic for you.

Eureka! Guess that was one article I did not come across in my searching. Had to enter the Product Key and do the activation thing and now all seems to be working fine. Will do a 'restart' to be sure all is well after that.

Thanks.

I'm glad it worked out for you, David.

I hope you'll keep coming back to the Forum for more-"fun" things.

Thanks again. All is working. Only wrinkle is that the User Account control box pops up to ask for permission to proceed. Doesn't happen with other programs. Greek to me.....

I've been using Streets & Trips as well as Auto Route for some time now. It has been running good with no problems.

However this has begun and the only way I've found is to set up another user account and log-off and log-on with the new user.

This is the full message: "Your registry settings were not copied correctly. To correct these settings, run Setup again for this application from the location where you originally installed it."

I tried this but it did not work. I uninstalled and reinstalled it did not work. The only way I've found is with a new user. Anyone got any ideas or suggestions?

Did you try starting the program from the 'Streets.exe' file in the folder where Streets & Trips was originally installed? This would be in the Progam Files or Program Files(X86) folder depending on your operating system. Sometimes, the installation does not complete properly and the icon created on the desktop can be faulty.

As Terry said, it's common for the installation of the program to be just fine but the link in the desktop icon is screwey. Find Streets.EXE and launch it (double-click). If that works, delete the desktop icon and create a new one.

For those wondering how to create a new icon on the desktop, find Streets.EXE, right-click on it, select "Send To..." and then select "Desktop (create shortcut)".

New PC Windows 7 - Streets 2009 - same issue registry error message after install. Tried selective start ups removed things no help - finally uninstalled and reinstalled in a new file location (just used 09 Vs 2009) - then from that program file location made shortcut to desktop - it worked!

NONE of these fixes have worked for me at all. This version simply will not work in Windows 7.

Hi John, and welcome to the forums. What symptoms do you experience? Are you getting the "Registry not copied correctly" message?

<edit>Post moved from another location</edit>

The following message appeared when trying to open Streets - have uninstalled, reinstalled with no luck. Will the 2011 version (if I buy it) correct the problem?

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.

Hi Budmona, I've moved your post to this thread. Have a look at the suggestions above for a possible solution.

Thanks for moving my post to the right place!
Tried everything - No Luck!
Question still remains - If I start over with a new version of S&T 2011 - do you think it might work?
