I finally bit the bullet and "up-graded" to Win 10 an my main computer.

Now, I cannot find Streets and Trips or Autoroute!!!

Guidance, Please!!!!

Did you try a search for Streets.exe?

On my Surface Pro 1 which I upgraded to Win 10 it is located at C:>ProgramFiles(x86).

Good thought, Terry, but still not there.

The folders (for both AR and S&T) are there and there are *.exe files as well, see screenshot attached.

On the screenshot you will see this incomprehensible (to me at least) error message that I get if I click on the desktop icon or on the Street.exe file.

I also went into Win 10 "Settings" and thence to "System" and thence to "Apps and features" and selected "Microsoft Streets and Trips 2010" and clicked on "Modify" and went through the steps. However, that did not fix it.

I think I might be looking at a "regedit" here but I am not sure what needs to be done as I do not know what the Register should look like.

It might be useful to me and it would be very much appreciated if you could take a look at the S&T section(s) of your working Register to give me a clue as to what to replicate.

All help appreciated!

I am running 2013 so it might not provide the info you require. However, here is a screenshot.

Thanks, Terry.

That is potentially useful. I can see the equivalent location in my registry where nothing seems to be missing.

I copied a couple of files from my laptop to my PC that were missing from the PC and did a "repair" but I still get the registry error message. I think I maybe on the right track although it is still definitely unsolved.

Complicating things (or perhaps the root cause of everything) is the fact that I got hit with a malware trojan horse back in December. While AR and S&T were then recovered, there may be a residual consequence exacerbated by the Win 10 installation.

More work to do, any help appreciated and I will report if a solution shows itself.

Did you try the 'disable UAC' and 'run as administrator' ideas from an old thread?

Is there some reason why you can't just completely remove the programs and then re-install from the original disks?
SpadesFlush
Thanks, Terry, for jogging me on the old 'run as administrator' wheeze; that is in fact what did it! Doooohhhh!

Yes, Boyd, there was a decent reason for not re-installing from the CD: that is in London and I am in the States right now.

But thanks all for considering my my woes but especially to Terry for steering me through Windows 10 chicanes.

Glad to hear that worked!

I had forgotten about that old thread too but spotted it on a search for your error message.

I hate to re-open this but one further question: I find that I must open as administrator each time. Is there a way of fixing this so that I can avoid this admittedly minor step?
tcassidy
As I don't know what that command really does, I cannot say. Did you try turning the UAC down a notch or off. To find the User Account Control, the easiest way is just type 'uac' in the find thing.

Thanks, Terry, but it does not appear to be a UAC issue as I still get the message on a lower setting. I think it is an install issue that I might be able to solve with a CD installation. I am going to London soon and I will bring back the disks and try a fresh install. Until then, I can live with opening in Admin mode unless someone has a better idea.

Did you see this TechNet article? It might help.

You can do the same thing by creating a desktop shortcut and then changing the shortcut's properties to Run as Administrator.
