Streets and Trips error: Registry settings not copied correctly
pandrz
I got a new Windows 7 computer for work and all the programs run well. I went on vacation and shut down my computer for 13 days and when I returned my Microsoft Streets & Trips 2010 says "Your registry settings for this application were not copied correctly. To correct these settings, Run Set-Up again for this application from the location where you originally installed it". Why, after it worked for 4 months does it have registry problems? I uninstalled and reinstalled and even downloaded the 2011 version only to get the same Error - HELP

Hi Pandrz, and welcome to the forum. I moved your post to this related discussion thread. See if you can solve the issue by trying the suggested idea(s) on the preceding pages.

I have Streets and Trips 2011 and have been using for almost a year without any problems until about a couple of weeks ago. It seems every time Windows does an update Streets and Trips won't load. I am running Windows 7 64 bit. I have had to restore my computer I think 4 times now, delete and reinstall Streets and Trips to get to work. This happened again, but I do not want to restore due to other work I do not want undone... not to mention shouldn't have to keep doing this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Need for work and going nuts over this.

Hi Dbrah, and welcome to the forum. When you say the program "won't load", are you refering to the issue discussed here, which is the following error message:
Quote:
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.
or, are you experiencing other issue which is preventing S&T from starting?

Windows 7 64-bit had a fix released which addressed an S&T start up issue, but it didn't relate to the above registry error. You may read about it at the following link: http://www.laptopgpsworld.com/4690-fixed-streets-trips-stops-responding-startup-screen-windows-7-a

I am using windows 8 (over win 7) and I have found that if I right click the Microsoft AutoRoute App, along the bottom of screen you will get various suggestion icons, one of which is "Run as administrator" if I then click on this AutoRoute runs correctly. It will not run in any other mode. Hope this helps.

Many thanks for your solution. This also works with Windows 7 and Autoroute 2006. I have been trying to find a solution to this problem for 2 weeks. The Microsoft "solution" does not seem to work. If you uninstall the program as they advise and do a clean boot, "Windows Installer" will not load to reinstall the program.

Thanks once again

Where do I find it in W7?

I had already shutdown User Account Control. I selected "Never Notify", I have no other choices.

I still get the "Your registry settings for his application were not copied correctly. To correct these settings, run Setup again for this application from the location where you originally installed it."

This is Streets 2013 on new Toshiba R950-SMBNX4 Tecra R950 / i5-3230M / 15.6" / 4GB / 500GB-7200 / Intel HD / Win 7 Pro

After working correctly under Windows 8 for several months, Streets & Trips 2010 started showing this message:

"Your registry settings for this application were not copied correctly. To correct these settings, Run Set-Up again for this application from the location where you originally installed it"

Solved the problem this way:
  1. In "Program Files (x86)", go to the program folder.
  2. Right-click Streets.exe and select "Properties".
  3. In the "Compatibility" tab, check "Run as an Administrator".
  4. Close and run the program as usual.
Has been working fine ever since.

I did this and got the same reply so I decided to uninstall and reinstall but keep getting the same reply when I try to run it.

Reinstalling doesn't fix the registry. Any ideas as to what to look for and what to do to in the registry to fix this?

I had the same problem with my copy of S&Ts 2011 running on Win 10 Dell laptop. It worked great for years and for no reason I got the registry error message. I did the UAC change, but it didn't work. So I returned UAC setting to where it was. Then I right clicked on the desktop shortcut for MS S&Ts 2011, clicked 'Properties'; there are several tabs listed at the top. In the Security tab I found 3 listings with regards to 'permissions'. One was 'System' (which was allowed Full Control). I changed and deleted 'System' by clicking on 'Advanced' (For special permissions or advanced settings click on Advanced.) button at the bottom. Then you must 'Disable Inheritance' before being able to 'Delete' System from the Permissions. I did this, went back to Propeties, clicked on 'Compatibility', checkmarked 'Run this program as an administrator', closed everything, rebooted my laptop and MS S&Ts 2011 is now working again! Hope this helps someone else. :-{D

I am using MS S&Ts 2011 on a Dell Vostro laptop running Windows 10. I got this error message. Here is a solution that worked for me. I tried the suggested change in the UAC, it didn't work. I right clicked on the desktop shortcut for MS S&Ts, clicked on Properties. Click the 'Security' tab. I had 3 entries listed; one was 'System'. Click on the 'Advanced' button at the bottom to edit special permissions. I clicked on 'System' listed in 'Permissions entries', then you must 'disable inheritance' in order to delete 'System' from the list (it had Full control permission). After I deleted 'System' from the list, I went back to the Properties box; then I selected the 'Compatibility' tab at the top. I then put a check mark in the 'Run this program as an administrator' box. Closed everything, rebooted, and now MS S&Ts 2011 works as it should. I hope this is helpful to others.

Thanks for the update.

If I was doing it I would probably do it backwards to your approach. That is, before deleting SYSTEM from the users list, I would simply go to the shortcut's Properties, "Compatibility" tab, click "Run this program as an Administrator", save it and reboot. That might be enough to get it working.

If that did not work, I would take your detailed approach.
