    Post How difficult is the upgrade to 2006?

    I need to upgrade to 2006 fast, but am afraid I may miss my deadline.

    I use functions like

    mpMap.FindAddressResults()
    mpMap.ActiveRoute
    mpMap.PrintOut()
    mpMap.Application.ItineraryVisible = false;


    and use objects like:

    MapPoint.Map
    MapPoint.Route
    MapPoint.Location
    MapPoint.Pushpin

    Has any of that stuff changed for 2006? If so, what?

    Could it be as easy as using a new filename and path to the ppt file? Or am I just dreaming?

    Thanks,
    BobFromBoston

    Re: How difficult is the upgrade to 2006?

    You should be okay. The COM interfaces for MP2006 & 2004 are backwardly compatible to 2002.

    If your new build will only be working with 2006, then rebuilding with references to 2006 is probably a good idea but definitely not essential.

    2006 adds some nice things, eg. a Location's longitude & latitude properties are set for all locations that represent a real point (even if they were created with a street address or something like that).

    There are a few minor extra enumerations (eg. the night map view).

    Also the collections tend to be more programmer friendly - you can use foreach functionality that wasn't available in 2002 (that one isn't documented - it bit me recently when I tried building with MP2002!).

    I'd say keep your MapPoint 2004 CD's handy - make sure you have them in case you need to go back.

    But as Richard says, it's very likely you won't need to change anything. Everything should work just fine.
