This should really be asked over on the UI-View support group,
but there are probably thousands of users on this list too.

Being Windows Vista, you did the right thing by not installing it in
Program Files. The "peaksystems" isn't necessary, but won't hurt
anything. PMap 7 should be fine in Program Files. You didn't
say, but is PMapServer somewhere other than below Program

I would have thought that the reinstall would have over-written
any registry entries that pointed to the original installation folder.

Does it run OK if you select a static map? You have probably
answered this already as you said "UI-View is registered and working."

Stephen has some good notes on getting it going. The following
page is specifically for PMap 7 / PMapServer 7, not for newer
versions. Do you see anything there that will help"
