Mapsource when updating invalid command line

It took a bit of time but I finally got your command line trick to work.A tip some others may need to know is you must be logged in as administrator, NOT just a user with administrator privileges.They MUST be there and in the indicated places or you'll get an error that the directory name is invalid. Try this: From the Command Prompt type the following as applicable and press ENTER: (Make sure you are in the C: root directory) "C: Program Files (x86)Google Google Earth Proclientgoogleearth.exe" /Reg Server (works with Google Earth Pro in Win 7...10) "C: Program Files Google Google Earth Proclientgoogleearth.exe" /Reg Server (Google Earth Pro in XP) "C: Program Files Google Google Earthclientgoogleearth.exe" /Reg Server (Google Earth in XP) "C: Program Files (x86)Google Google Earthclientgoogleearth.exe" /Reg Server (Google Earth non-Pro on Win 7, 8.x and 10) Note for those not used to using the command line in Windows, the double quotes in all of the examples are critical.They MUST be there and in the indicated places or you'll get an error that the directory name is invalid. Thanks for the advice but I'm not sure how booting Google Earth from the C prompt solves the problem.You can view maps, plan routes, and mark waypoints and tracks from your computer and then transfer them to your device.

Once it get corrupted, you may get several error messages while updating the Windows “Windows can’t be update”.

For folks not wanting to add the backslashes manually, sussamb's link: https://forums.garmin.com/showthread.php? correctly shows the command line entry with backslashes. It's all on a single command line; i.e., the ...exe" /Reg Server is all on a single line with a single space before the slash.

JM has a great FAQ on Composing Tips: but the tip for how to create a backslash is not in the FAQ.

However, and this is a biggie, sussamb (and JM), at least on my PC, the POI Factory has problems with backslashes.

In the above bolded command line entry of yours in this reply and your orginal reply, there are four missing backslashes that were removed by the POI Factory software.

Google Earth boots just fine from the desktop icon. Try this: From the Command Prompt type the following as applicable and press ENTER: (Make sure you are in the C: root directory) "C: Program Files (x86)Google Google Earthclientgoogleearth.exe" /Reg Server (Google Earth non-Pro on Win 7, 8.x and 10) Genius! Now after doing the above (for my free Google Earth in a Win 10 PC) in Base Camp with or without Google Earth already running, I can tell Base Camp to View in Google Earth and it works.
