    You don't have to install if you already have Google Earth installed. You can follow the directions to use the /RegServer command and that should do it. Of course, if you uninstall and install Google Earth again, it may or may not register the COM. I would attempt the /RegServer command line first to save time.

    Let me know.

    Thanks,

    Banger, if it is still not working for you, try this little trick. Go to your shortcut on your desktop for GoogleEarth and right-click. Then go to properties. Then under Target: move to the end and type /RegServer so it looks like this "C:\Program Files\Google\Google Earth\googleearth.exe" /RegServer and then click OK.

    Start Google Earth by clicking on the icon and it should register for you. Then quit Google Earth and remove the /RegServer from the Target and you should be good to go.

    Let me know.

    Thanks

    Banger, I assume that you were able to pick your folder and file name, correct?

    It looks as if the error occurred at the point when I create and reference the COM object for Google Earth.

    I will look at the Google Earth documents to see if I can find out more about the /RegServer command. I am wondering if you have to do a restart after you issue the command. Let me dig a little deeper and get back to you.

    Thanks,

    Banger,

    Going through the forums on Google, I see that some other people running 64 bit versions of Windows are having the same issue.

    I made a small change to the way I call the FolderBrowserDialog. Let's see if this fixes it for you. I will get it online in the next 15 minutes.

    UPDATE:

    Well I tested it and it works fine on a 32 bit system. It gives me problems on a 64 bit version. I really don't know what the problem is as some people that run 64 bit systems said it worked for them. I will look and see if I can find a solution. Sorry Banger.

    Thanks,

    I think it is another way of giving elevation to a kml file. An alternative to 3DRoute Builder or BTBLofty.

    I don't think a copy would do any good; I think the main program is on a server and we just have a small part of it.

    I recommend BTB Lofty - see the attachment in this post (VE Track Starter no longer works, but you can make the kml file via Google Earth).
