    Conversion from MP 2002 to MP 2004 changes location lat/lon

    A map was created in MP 2002, then some locations were moved and the map saved. I opened the map in MP 2004 which caused the contents to be converted. After conversion, the locations which had been moved reverted back to their original positions.

    Can this process (undo of location move) be prevented, either by setting some preference in MP 2002 when the changes are made and saved, or in MP 2004 when conversion takes place?

    Any insight would be appreciated.

    seems pretty strange. There is nothing to suggest that mappoint remembers the last location of a pushpin at least its not that I know of.

    One solution could be to export your pushpins (with Lat/Lon) using PushpinTool so you can import them in the new map.

    Conversion changing lat/lons

    BTW, this problem has been reported as incident SRX 040618606281 at Microsoft.

    Agree that there is a work-around. However, this does not help any user that converts a map from MP 2002 to MP 2004 without realizing that any re-positioning of sites has been undone during conversion.
