The geocoding.fdb has changed in version 10 compared to version 9. The internal firebird database is located in C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau 10.x\Local\data and contains all necessary map information. To start using Maps in Tableau Desktop 10 simply drag and drop from the Worksheet data pane on the left Longitude into Columns and Latitude into Rows. Then drag something like Profit into Color in the Marks panel and Country into the Detail. If you don't have a data set with these dimensions/measure you can use the built-in superstore.
It is also possible to import custom geocoding if there are cities missing for example. It can be done by creating a custom csv file with geocoding format and then from the Menu - Map - Geocoding - Import Custom geocoding.
In regards to the error we recommend to perform a clean install of Tableau Desktop 10.4 by:
1. Completely removing Tableau Desktop
2. Install Tableau Desktop
