Thanks, Andy. Unfortunately, this does not seem to work either. It is a 
.reg file which does not give the option of running as Administrator. I 
wrote a .bat file to run it, which I can run as Administrator, but still 
no joy.

Running it direct does create a new set of entries under 
HKLM/Software/Garmin (which wasn't there before), but running it through 
the .bat file does not.
