Texture Grab and GE 7.3

It would seem the latest version of Google Earth has broken the system other programs use to connect to it which has stopped the texture grab feature from working, and it also seems GE now has an Auto update feature that can not be turned off so to continue to use the Texture Grab feature you will need to install a version of GE prior to 7.3. You can use this link https://dl.google.com/earth/client/GE7/release_7_1_8/googleearth-win-pro- to get version 7.1.8 which works fine. You will still need to do the RegServer trick after installing GE.

To re register the GE COM server open a cmd window and go to the folder where the GoogleEarth.exe is. Then type ‘googleearth /RegServer’ then close the cmd window. The texture grabbing system should now be able to find GE correctly and grab your image.
