    Installing Mappoint 2002

    I just acquired Mappoint 2002. I get an error while trying to install. It wants to install as if on a network. Anyone had this problem?

    Networkinstallation

    If you dont have CD's to install from you have to make at first a Administration install.
    The Administration installation copys only the Files into the directory wich you specify after calling setup in adminmode (for example C:\downloads\mappoint\CD1\setup.exe /a)
    Aftre them you can install Mappoint by using the setup.exe in the specified directory from the adminmode installation.

    bye

    Is it possible to copy disk 2 (or 1 for that matter) to the hd so I dont have to keep putting the cd in?

    can't you just burn the discs?

    also, at install time you can choose to do a 'full' instal, where all the data from disc 2 are copied to the hard drive so you don't need the cd to run.
