Google Earth in Humminbird PC trouble
« on: September 06, 2017, 05:46:14 AM »
Hey guys, I'm Jon and I'm new here. I'm new to Humminbird PC and Google Earth, so please bear with me. I just downloaded Humminbird PC and imported my waypoints from a SD card into the program. When trying to open Google Earth in Humminbird PC I couldn't find it in the directory and changed something. Now when I click the Google Earth icon nothing happens. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 
Humminbird PC version - 4.5.5
Google Earth version - 7.3.0.3832

The easiest thing at this point may be to uninstall Google Earth and reinstall Google Earth  ...

I just did this myself a couple days ago to confirm for another user that the above works when there is difficulty finding the GE.exe for Humminbird PC to direct to  ...

I gave that a shot with no luck. Its strange, once I go through the "cannot find google earth at default path" popup and actually download Google Earth I cannot get that pop up to come up again so I can find the googleearth.exe.

Let me try to better explain what happened in the first place. When I tried opening Google Earth and was prompted to locate its default path I chose something wrong. So now when I hit the GE icon nothing happens. Its as if its looking in the wrong place, if that makes sense? Thanks

I think you need to uninstall and then reinstall HumminbirdPC.  That should allow you to re-select the correct path to GoogleEarth.

I finally got it! A very kind fella from the Humminbird Side Imaging Facebook page walked me through it and we got it all straightened out. Thanks for the suggestions guys!

I had not looked at HB PC for some time. I'm guessing as of 8/17/2017 with google earth update my problem started. I cannot view waypoints on googleearth through the icon. I can view, if I enter file directly into googleearth file search. My program files are set to client. However, under googleearth.exe.local ,it shows 0 bytes. I have removed both HB PC and googleearth pro programs more than 3 times, downloaded each, and reinstalled with same results. What should I try?

Yes, the following.  Error Code 0x80070057   I've looked at the code, and seems like too many variables.

Is there more verbiage in the error popup  ... Like asking you to direct a path to Google Earth  ...??

No. When I deleted google earth from program file last night, I thought I would reload it by hitting the icon in HB PC. But it did not bring up the load google earth message. Just the same error code shown previously. I have also tried deleting HB PC, that was listed under my Helix, and reloaded HB PC from my 998 file. Same error.

When I un-installed Google Earth - I did not even check if HBPC would prompt me to download GE again  ...

I re-installed Google Earth manually  ...

Then HBPC populated the GE (globe) icon and it was usable without further notice of any errors  ...
