I have the following registry keys:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\JP SOFTWARE\TAKE COMMAND 10.0]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command 10]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command 11.0]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command 11]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command 12.10]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command 12.11]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command 12]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command 13.0]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command 14.0]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command 9.02]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command 9.0]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command 9]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software]

and the following versions of TCMD.EXE :

10.00.78
11.00.52
12.11.76
13.04.63
14.0.19
8.02.106
9.02.157
What keys can I safely remove please?

None of them.
LIke the OP, I, too, have keys like these:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command 9.02]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command 9.0]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command 9]

Why do we need all three?
Even more interestingly, why do we need both of these:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command 12.10]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command 12.11]

After all, 12.11 replaced 12.10!

That's not correct -- minor version and major version registry entries contain different data.

But if you must delete them, go ahead -- the worst that will happen is that you'll have to reenter your registration, and your window sizes & position will revert to the default. (Though since Take Command will automatically recreate the registry entries for the window info, you won't have gained anything.)
