Issue with Microsoft Streets and Maps?


Recommended Posts

I just started using Malwarebytes about a week ago so please forgive my lack of experience. I am having a problem in downloading Microsoft Streets and Maps and wonder if there may be an issue with Malwarebytes. I've gone through the download process several times and everything works well until I try to open the program. I get a pop-up the reads: "Your Registry setting for this program were not copied correctly. To correct these settings, run Setup again for this application from the location where ou originally installed it."

The reference to the registry makes me wonder if Malwarebytes is blocking the change. Any ideas? Suggestions?

Thanks in advance for any assistance provided.

Hi Mark -

"Your Registry setting for this program were not copied correctly. To correct these settings, run Setup again for this application from the location where you originally installed it."

This means there is no problem with Malwarebytes , unless your Antivirus is causing it -

Thank You - :)

EDIT - Uninstall the Malwarebytes from the directions below - Install the Street maps and then Reinstall Malwarebytes program -

Ok, thanks. I've run Setup 5 times at this point with the same result - no changes to my Antivirus (unless it's an update that is causing the conflict). I have an old 2003 version of S&M and had the same issue when I tried to open the program - thought that it was just out of date and needed to upgrade anyway. I will check with MS tonight and see if they have a solution.

Thanks guys - and sorry for the lack of info on my system...I'm no expert here. :) I'm at work so I don't have access to the specifics. My operating system is Vista and I am using Norton Antivirus...which obviously doesn't protect against all the malware...which is why I found and bought your product. I do normal updates an all of them.

Both my Streets 2003 and 2010 are paid versions. 2003 worked without problems until Tuesday - and a few days after I downloaded Malwarebytes paid version - I did use the free version for a few weeks but don't remember if I tried to use the old Streets or not. The error message is the same for both, indicating that there is a registry issue. Never had that problem before with 2003.

I will try the uninstall route and see if that fixes the problem - and will post back in any case.

Thanks for the responses and advice!

I finally resolved the issue yesterday, finally having the time to sit at my system and work through it. I followed your instructions (which were excellent, by the way) and un-installed Malwarebytes. I then un-installed MS STreets and Trips and then downloaded it again...with the same results. So, I re-installed Malwarebytes and called the MS Store support line.

After a few minutes of being passed to the correct tech, he immediately recognized the issue - it was an administrative permissions issue that he indicated was common. All I had to do was go to the file where the program was, right click on the program icon and click on Properties. Then, click on the Connectivity tab and check the box allowing the program to run with full admin permissions. After closing the box, I clicked on the MS Trips and Streets and it allowed me to register the program and then run it.

Thanks again for the guidance and tolerance!

Mark
