    • In 64-bit Windows, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\MicroSurvey\MSCAD2010\
  3. Go to Edit | New | String Value and name it "Installed" (with a capital I, without the quotes)
  4. Double-click on your new "Installed" value, and assign it the value data "YES" (with all capitals, without the quotes)
