    Anyone selling MapPoint Euro edition?

    Looking for 2006, but 2004 will do if anyone upgraded and no longer needs the old copy. Thanks! Hoping to find a seller in North America or Canada preferably.

    Thanks Eric. If I can't persuade my client to send me a copy himself, I will look you up.

    Re: Anyone selling MapPoint Euro edition?

    While I am thinking about it, is there anything unexpected that may occur by running my VB6 developed software with NA editions with the Euro edition? By unexpected, let me state what I expect: I will be building a new computer and installing my VB6 and MapPoint Euro software. I will change the early bindings to reflect the new edition of MapPoint, but will leave all the original code as is (except where any specific address handlers come up, since I am sure the address formats are a bit different).

    Do you think there would be any other hiccups?

    Would you have both versions installed on any machines?

    If not, the identical code should work except as you mention to take particular care with addresses.

    If any machines have both versions installed, you can explicitly define which application is instantiated by putting a .NA or .EU in the code.

    Ah, so would that mean that the two versions would play nice together, so long as I made the appropriate calls? I know MapPoint 2004 and 2006 NA edition, for example, cannot be on the same PC, but that is not the same for the different regional editions?

    Has there been any early Vista adopters running into problems? If I do get the new PC anyway, I would really like to get Vista Ultimate at the OEM price, but not if it will hinder VB6 automation of MapPoint.

    Re: Anyone selling MapPoint Euro edition?

    There really is no issue with having MP2004 and MP2006 installed on the same PC. I run 2004 and 2006 of both the North American and European editions (4 total) along with Streets&Trips 2006 and AutoRoute 2007.

    Haven't tried Mappoint under Vista yet.
