Restrated program, same Lost data file, fix? yes
then it installs a newer version again
my new route is gone.
and every time I restart the program, same thing all over again.

Yes I had this unpleasant experience too in Win7-64b the first time. I backed up all my tracks, routes and waypoints using the BC backup, then uninstalled everything, rebooted, cleared all the temp files, then reinstalled and opened the backup file I stored and all was good. No issues since then - even going from V4.01 to V4.02.

If that does not work you may have to save your waypoint, track and route files as *.gdb or *.gpx and export - then import back to your fresh install of BC.

Hope you get it up and running smoothly.
