Default Trouble installing program

Hello everyone,

I'm running Windows Vista and trying to install Garmin Mapsource which I bought 5 yrs ago and was running on my computer with XP on it. I was able to install it on my new computer but when I go to run it, it gives me the following error meesage,

"Access was denied when Mapsource tried to read from the registry. Please consult your administrator and start Mapsource again."

Not too sure what to do here so anything would be highly appreciated, please help.

Thanks,

Dan

You may have to run the program in compatibility mode. This will show you how to set it up: Using Windows Vista Compatibility Mode

Hey thanks for the reply man, much appreciated,

I actually found that compatibility mode by fluke and tried it, and it worked right before I checked to see if anyone had replied to my question, what do you know.
Anyways thanks alot for the help. I know where to come for answers now, thanks again.

Dan
