Thanks to Kryo for his speedy reply to my personal message.
Here is what I found when getting my "non Ultimate edition" of TA to accept the cheat codes:
My GC2 TA folder has TWO different LAUNCHERS for the expansion.
And only #1 works with the codes. ALSO, I did notice that the CTRL + P code does not work on your individually selected planets, as it once did. CTRL + SHIFT + P however, does as reported, and increases the quality of ALL uninhabited planets on the full map.
