Hello Larry. Wonderful to have an answer from someone that knows a lot. I tried to follow your help. But with same result. First I reinstalled the program, then right click to do it with compatibility mode (did not know it existed), then with rights of an administrator, and finally the program was installed and asked if I wanted to repair and I said yes. But when I tried to run the program the Welcome screen appeared and nothing else. I could not even take a screen capture, so that you could see the window. But it was the green window: Microsift Autoroute 2007 license for Product ID 84797-805-6590895-04994.
I'm angry because I have paid for the program, and it works on my old laptop. I'm going along Route 66 in USA this May, and if Microsoft has the same policy with Streets and Trips I will buy another product. I hope this is helpful for you. My system is Win7 64 bit. Can I post a screen capture for you on this site?
