    Re: Code to generate poster prints from mappoint

    According to Irfanview, Eric's 17490 x 14290 Pixels Chicago snap at 300 x 300 is a standard 48" x 60" (58.3 x 47.6).

    For comparison, here is Mattys Consulting's 48"x60" pdf of the same area at 8 miles altitude. The reason this is a larger file is because it is 600 x 600.

    Hello. I have MapPoint 2006 and am having the same problem. Can someone let me know how I can get this to work? Thanks!

    Sounds like you have to use MapPoint 2009... or you could dig into the code and recompile it so it works with MapPoint 2006. The coding changes should be very minimal.

    I think it is just an ActiveX/COM versioning problem. It should be very easy to fix, but it may take me a few days to get to it.

    Thank you.
    I will wait for blitzkriegoutlaw's fix.

    Eric, did you have the same problem when you first installed it? If so, what did you do to get it fixed?

    I just switched to MapPoint 2009. I was really only trying it under MapPoint 2004 to be obnoxious and test if it would work.

    Re: Code to generate poster prints from mappoint

    I downloaded the trial version of MapPoint 2009 and reinstalled the LargeMapGenerator.msi but am still experiencing the same problems. I see it in COM Add-ins but when I check it, it doesn't appear in tools and gets unchecked in COM Add-ins. In COM Add-ins, the location is listed as mscoree.dll. Is that right? If someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

    Hmm, I don't know. Maybe try uninstalling and installing again.

    Uninstalled and installed again. Problem persists.

    Anything wrong with the location of the COM Add-in? mscoree.dll??
