Fixes recurring error: 'Terrain Navigator does not appear to be installed on this PC.'
This application is for customers with Terrain Navigator Pro, and/or Terrain Navigator Pro Network Edition with version 8.0, 8.5, or 8.51 who wish to install their older version of the application onto a computer running the 64-bit edition of Windows 7. (This is also sometimes referred to as the x64 edition.) Due to a change that Microsoft made in the implementation of the Windows Registry, the 8.0, 8.5, and 8.51 versions of Terrain Navigator will not install properly in Windows 7 x64. (This issue was not present in the Windows Vista 64-bit edition which was the current Microsoft Operating System at the time of their development.) This download corrects this change within the installation of Terrain Navigator Pro, making it possible to complete the configuration process for new states.
This fix is only required for versions 8.0, 8.5 or 8.51 of Terrain Navigator Pro. Those with version 8.6 (or later) need not to download this patch. Those with Terrain Navigator Standard Edition should download version 8.71 or upgrade to the current version of Terrain Navigator Pro.
Those who have an active subscription for aerial photos and software upgrades should not download this patch. Instead, please uninstall Terrain Navigator Pro 8.x and instead download and install the current version by logging into your Registration account.
During the process of configuring Terrain Navigator Pro to accept the state (or states) included in the package, computers running Windows 7 x64 will report the following error:
Terrain Navigator does not appear to be installed on this PC.
Please insert the Terrain Navigator 'INSTALLER' DVD to begin the setup process.
Doing so simply repeats the process.
Those with the Network Edition of Terrain Navigator Pro receive the following error once the application is setup on the client workstation:
'Terrain Navigator Pro Network' system corrupt, reinstall product from original CD
Reinstalling has no effect on this error.
Applying the Fix
After receiving one of these error messages, press OK. Then, run the file below. This fix will adjust the system registry to allow the further use of Terrain Navigator Pro. Once this fix is applied, no further fixes will be required (unless you are re-installing Terrain Navigator on a new Windows 7 x64 machine.)
For Terrain Navigator Pro Network Edition, no further action is needed; the state(s) have already been installed on your network server - running this fix merely establishes the link from the client workstation to the network server.
For Terrain Navigator Pro and Terrain Navigator Standard Edition, an additional step is required to configure Terrain Navigator to recognize the CD (or DVD) discs in the state(s) you have purchased. Once the fix is applied, start Terrain Navigator. A window will appear with 4 buttons: Demo, Install New CD, Help, and Exit. Press Install New CD and follow the on-screen prompts to complete the configuration process.
Can I get this update on DVD?
