2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Informatica/PoerMart Client Tools/<you Informatica verions>

3. Take a export of the current registry by right-clicking e.g. Designer -> Export

4. Then right click on the Designer -> Delete

5. Close the Registry Editor

6. Run the Designer and check if the Respository Navigator appear!
