    Files /dll's needed to run mappoint on a system where mappoint is not installed.

    Hi,
    I have a winforms application.
    I have mappoint installed on my development machine.
    Now when i moved to test machine, i get the following error.
    System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80040154): Class not registered (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040154 (REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG))
    I was advised to register the activex control and wheen i try to do that, it fails:
    make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files.
    From this it looks like some dll is missing.
    What are the dependency files that are required to run mappoint control on a system where mappoint is not installed?
    Can you provide me with a list of dlls and other files that are needed to run this?
    Thanks in advance

    MapPoint Install

    It's not going to work unless MapPoint is installed.

    So the dependency is basically that you install MapPoint!

    Sorry I think this is not the answer you wanted to hear, but it's true. You have to install MapPoint to get all the road data and stuff copied to the computer. You need everything, not just some dll's / components. (Technically I guess some things are not necessary the samples folder, the help file.)

    Re: Files /dll's needed to run mappoint on a system where mappoint is not installed.

    I think the main practical reason is the cost of licensing all the data.

    A big chunk of the cost of a license goes into the royalties Microsoft pays the data vendors, so it must not make sense to have a separate ActiveX control-only license.
