Problem With Mapsource Registry

I now have found one reliable way of creating and fixing this problem
which should also give us a good idea of what the problem is and how
to fix it in general.

In my case, I had Mapsource 6.11.1 installed, along with topo, city
select v7 and trip and waypoint manager. I decided I had installed
trip and waypoint manager but didn't need it. So I uninstalled it.

From that point on, any time I tried to run Mapsource, I got the error
message: "There Is A Problem With The Mapsource registry. Please
re-install mapsource and start it again".

First of all, I did not want to uninstall everything, clean up the
files and registry and then reinstall everything again. I was curious
to know what was giving mapsource the headache.

Also, reinstalling trip and waypoint manager after the uninstall does
not help or accomplish anything.

So I have zero'd in on the culprit. Apparantly, Mapsource is very
particular what shows up in the values of the registry key,

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GARMIN\MAPSOURCE\FAMIL IES

I guess it expects certain keys with valid values and if it doesn't
find it, out pops the error. In my case, Trip And Waypoint Manager,
left a key after uninstallation:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GARMIN\MAPSOURCE\FAMIL IES\TRIP AND
WAYPOINT MANAGER V2

with absolutely nothing in it. To solve my personal problem, all I
need to do was delete that key and Mapsource worked fine again. NO
INSTALLATION REQUIRED

So if you get this error, chances are you may be able to delete
something or modify something and get it working without 'putzing'
with the software (install or deinstall).

Here is a sample REG file of what one of the keys should look like for
example for City Select North America v7 (yours could be different,
for example the drive letter or folder name could be different):

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Garmin\MapSource\Famil ies\City Select
North America v7]
@=""
"DataInstallDir"="C:\\Program Files\\Garmin\\"
"SourceDir"="K:\\"
"ID"=hex:7d,00
"MDR"="C:\\Program Files\\Garmin\\CSNA7_mdr.img"
"IDX"="C:\\Program Files\\Garmin\\CSNA7.mdx"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Garmin\MapSource\Famil ies\City Select
North America v7\1]
"Notice"="C:\\Program Files\\Garmin\\CSNA7\\license.txt"
"Bmap"="C:\\Program Files\\Garmin\\CSNA7.img"
"Tdb"="C:\\Program Files\\Garmin\\CSNA7.tdb"
"Loc"="C:\\Program Files\\Garmin\\CSNA7"
"Partial Install"=hex:00
