Some Trouble with Trimble: Trimble install doesn't see my Civil 3D 2009

I have installed AutoCAD Civil 2009 and AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009. When I try to install Trimble Link it only finds AutoCAD Civil. I have tried removing AutoCAD Civil 2009 however it just says it can not find the Civil 3D System. So I have tried Clean installing AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009 and it still says it can not find AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009. How can I get this to work.

Trimble Support says to do the following:

Run Regedit and navigate to the following registry


In this registry key you will see a number of entries with one of them being


This is the AutoCAD Civil 2009 system reference.

Delete this entry, uninstall Trimble Link and reinstall.

Remember you must backup your registry before trying this.

Edit your registry at your own risk. Improperly editing the Registry can result in your operating system not functioning.
