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\FAMILIES

    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\FAMILIES\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\Families\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\Families\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
