    Hi,

    I'm afraid this will violate the end user agreement because your users will not have nececarly a MapPoint licence installed.

    But you can do this also with Microsoft MapPoint Web Service, and also with Microsoft Virtual Earth.

    ok MapPoint Web Service is this in the map point program or is it seperate. (if it is seperate can i download it), Microsoft Virtual Earth (same for this one). these will let me do it so that my customers can click and get a map etc.... now as far as the different colors for different sites. is it as simple as changing the color of the push pins? is there a way i can get detailed with it i.e. im doing convenient stores called town & country, is there a way i can have it to where can type in town & countrys in say austin texas, and it pops up all the town and countrys.

    This sounds like it could be an ideal application for Virtual Earth.

    The Web Service is a subscription service, but you might need that if Microsoft's commercial license for Virtual Earth is not acceptable.
