Question about Microsoft Streets and Trips 2008 for PC
The program loads on my laptop but when i go to use it it will not start. It gives the hour glass for about 10 seconds then nothing.
I was having the same problem with streets and trips 2008.I uninstalled and reinstalled the program no luck.I restored to an earlier time no luck.I talked to a friend of mine who is a PC tech he could'nt help me.I was totally frustrated with this issue.I installed the program 2 months ago and had no problems until last saturday.I depend on this program for work.I called Microsoft of course the wrong department they gave me the right number to call 1-800-936-5700 this program Microsoft Streets and Trips with GPS locator has unlimited tech support.They connected to my laptop and went to one of their websites and downloaded a small reset program and this resolved the issue.My issue was that I would double click the icon on my desktop I would get a circle thing which is the same as the hour glass on xp for only about 3 seconds and then nothing the program would not launch.Any way I tried I couldnt get the program to open.
I hope this information is usefull to some one.

I had this same problem on a laptop with a clean XP Pro and a fully registered S&T 2008.
I let it go, got a new laptop, SAME DAMN thing.

Tons of hold time and product key verification ****, but they got it fixed. It takes them longer to verify your key and start a desktop sharing session than it does for them to apply the patch.

This is a fishing expedition by msn to catch unregistered copies of trips. Make sure you have a registered copy before you call tech help line. 15 minutes to install patch. 1-800936-5700

By the way, this worked great but the Microsoft support number in Canada is 1-800-668-7975

Call tech support. They will fix it in seconds. There is a small program they need to run to "UNREGISTER" S&T 2008. After they run the file, you simply re-enter the product key and it is brand new. You don't lose any files, at least as far as I can tell.

I had the same problem on XP Pro SP3. So not limited to Vista. Tech support took control and downloaded a program, launched it, and then S&T 2008 started fine. They did make sure the 'fix file' was deleted. You have to go through support but at least it fixed the problem for me.

Hi Tim...Yes, I had the exact same fix...the tech took over my laptop and downloaded something. Of course, as a former tech, the last thing I wanted to do was call a tech (terrible blow to my self esteem! LOL!)
We were on holidays in San Diego when the program stopped working, so the timing was pretty inconvenient.
Mine is the GPS edition too. It's great now that it works!

I finally got thru to Microsoft, and their tech had to take over my desktop and actually install some stuff. I am a former MCSE, and I still can't tell you for the life of me what was wrong. He wouldn't tell me. I think it is Vista related.
Anyway, it works fine now!

Try an alternative route to the program. Start, Programs, Streets and Trips folder, exe file with icon on it.
You should be able to get into your program from there.
