    Re: Importing new layers in Mappoint Europe 2006

    If you first translate the layer to a ESRI Shape file or a MapInfo mif/mid file you can use Microsoft "Spatial Data Importer" sample code to import the layer as drawing objects in MapPoint 2002/2004/2006.

    It's not perfect or very flexible though, you might find the sample code needs some modification for your needs.

    You can find the code in Microsoft's Download Center.
