    The examples in the Help that accompanies MapPoint are all in VB6, and are probably amongst the best examples that you'll find.

    This webste also has a range of articles solving particular problems.

    I can very much relate to this topic. My experience with MapPoint has been getting driving directions from MSN Maps, however now we just obtained the full version for a programming project here at work. I program in VB .Net and I do not know where to start. Besides this newgroup and this website I have tried to study the MapPoint help files but I feel like I am not even at square one.

    The primary job of MapPoint would be to check for any other events within a driving distance of 100 miles. Basically, get the distance between point A and point B and display it on the map. I don't even know how to bring up the map right now on my windows form.

    It would be nice if there was a good book for MapPoint for .Net Developers (something like the Step By Step books).

    Assuming you've installed the full version of MapPoint (1.5 gb),
    which has data that the Active-X control depends on, you may have to
    repair the installation by using add/remove programs.

    There is also the possiblity that you could simply add an ActiveX component
    and then browse to it and select it.

    A third possibility exists - if you can find the control in Explorer and copy it's path,
    then you may be able to paste the path of the EXE into the Run dialog surrounded by quotes like so:
    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft MapPoint 2010\MapPoint.exe" /regserver

    I hope one of these works!
