Registering Google Earth

“I’m having trouble with step 4, can you explain in a different way? I don’t quite understand it. Thanks.”

In our blog post dated 2/16/17, Step 4 is to register the Google Earth program with your PC.

First, use the Search function on your PC to look for a file with this name:

googleearth.exe

In most cases, it will be located in this file folder on your PC:

c:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Google Earth\client\

Now use a text editor such as Notepad to open a new file.

Type this line into the text box:

“c:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Google Earth\client\googleearth.exe”
/RegServer

This is all one line without any breaks.
You must enter it exactly as shown, including the quotation marks.

If the actual file path is

c:\Program Files\Google\Google Earth\client\googleearth.exe

then substitute this part in the above text line in Notepad.

Make a temporary folder on your PC, such as TEMP.

Save the above text file in this TEMP folder using a name that ends in .com, such as

Register-Google.cmd

To run this file, right-click on its name and select “Run as administrator”.
