    Here goes.

    I haven't used auto route 2002 for a couple of months.
    I wanted to look for a place to go and visit on the coast of Kent with my mates
    to take advantage of this hot weather etc...

    I clicked auto route 2002 icon to bring her open and I got the message:

    ''Alert box'': Your registry settings for this application were not copied correctly.
    To correct these settings, run setup again for this application from the location you originally installed it from.

    Well I reinstalled. Got same error. Uninstalled it, then reinstalled it and hence same error.

    So visited the M$ knowledge pages and found these:;en-gb;267851&ln=en-gb;EN-US;255875;EN-US;317904

    Did all the work throughs they didn't work.

    I downloaded a file to clean it up after uninstalling and also a fix called 'Steula' to add when I reinstalled it.

    After searching the net ( I reinstalled it and got same error message) I found a reg fix file:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Works Suite\2002\ame9]

    Which is supposed to tell the application I have accepted the the licence agreement and it still don't work.

    I then installed M$ works and noticed it did the same licence agreement. I tried auto route 2002 again same error.

    I added to the registry for auto route 2002 this below, as it was same as works agreement acceptance.

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Works Suite\2002\ame9]

    It still won't work, it is getting right up my nose.

    Anyone have any idea on how I can fix this so I don't have to format and start again.

    I think it is some software I installed, I installed flash plugin beta, pay pal for frontpage 2002/2000, spy sites, black widow and drive image 7 recently.

    Also the usual nvidia card upgrade drivers from M$ site and any recent updates from the update site.

    Can anyone help with a way of sorting this out other than a format. I have in 3 years done 2 formats and it takes me 3 days to get my system back to before a format.

    Well I spent all of my time thinking, watching two pints of lager and a packet of crisps on bbc3 and (not going to tell what happened in it that made me realise the solution) but I got it sorted.

    So moderator could you close this 'thread' thanks. :)
