    Question Install of MP with out CD

    Hello,

    Does anyone have any experience - or have an idea how to - have MP 2006 download to a client (any computer, (with a license)) without envolving the CD?
    You can make an install CD with an ActiveX based program, but this requires CD2. What I am talking about is more or less what happens when you download the trial ver from MS - it just downloads the whole thing....

    Perhaps there is an option on creating the install disk that directs to the data on somthing other than the D drive?

    Thanks for any help.

    If you copy both CD's together it will not prompt for the second cd.

    Make a folder like C:\MapPoint2006ALL\ on your hard drive.

    Copy the contents of CD2 directly into this folder.

    Then copy the contents of CD1 into this folder, it might overwrite some files from CD2, but that is OK.

    Then just fire off the install like C:\MapPoint2006ALL\setup.exe

    Hope this helps!
    Eric
