    Re: Mappoint 2009 pushpins

    Eric,

    Thanks for the link to the template. However, this template also has a lot of additional entries in the Symbols collection. When I open a map with this template (in a MapPoint.Application or using the MapPointControl object) and spin through the SYMBOLS collection, I come up with 467 elements.

    Dim oApp as New MapPoint.Application
    Dim oMap as MapPoint.Map
    Dim i as Integer
    Dim s as String

    set oMap = oApp.NewMap("C:\Test\EFrost.ptt")
    For i = 1 to oMap.Symbols.Count
    s = s & CStr(i) & " " & oMap.Symbols(i).Name & vbCrLf
    Next i

    'Display s in some multi-line textbox control to see the results

    You will see that the 1st 45 elements are the pin symbols that come with MP 2009. The 46th element also is part of MP2009, but is not visible in the "Create Pushpin" drop down. Elements 47 through 96 have no names (they are images of a red "home plate" with white numbers 1 - 50) and again are not visible in the "Create Pushpin" drop down. Elements 97 - 156 are weather bitmaps (4 sets of 15 images). Finally, elements 157 - 467 represent most of the 2006 pins, but the pins are not in the correct order and 26 pins are missing.

    Ideally, we should have a SYMBOLS collection that contains 382 elements (46 from MP 2009 plus 336 from MP 2006). The smallest collection that I can create contains 432 elements (46 from MP2009, 50 elements representing red "home plates" with white numbers 1-50, 336 elements from MP2006). I have attached that template to this post.

    Stan,

    Have you installed MP2009? What operating system is your PC running?

    Yes I have installed it. I am runing XP. I also downloaded the ST09 & MP09template files. I put them in the templates directory. I ran into the same problem as everyone else that when I went to my 2002 map I could not see the old pushpins. What directory should I go to.

    Re: Mappoint 2009 pushpins

    I have been a long time user of Streets and Trips and just got the 2009 version. I am really mad about the pushpins! I route almost 20 different zip codes and I color code them using the different colors and shapes of pushpins. Now I have no way of differentiating the zip codes

    I saw someone made a patch software but I don't have Map point and am not sure how to install it.

    Re: Mappoint 2009 pushpins

    Yes I got it to work but I have to import them each time I open a new Map. I use the program to route out about 2500 addresses in about 20 different zip codes each month. I color code the different zip codes for easy mapping. It isn't realistic for me to import every time I start a new map. I talked with Tech support for Streets and Trips and they say they are getting several complaints about this and Microsoft has been notified and is working on something. In the meantime it just wasn't worth the hassle so I am sticking with S&T 2008.

    mapguies, if you don't want to import your personal pushpin symbols each time you open a new map, just import the symbols once, and then save the resulting file as a template. Help file has instructions on how to do that.

    Streets & Trips 2009

    Does Streets & Trip have a default template like MapPoint ?

    I think so.. I have Streets & Trips 2007 installed and it looks like the default template is at

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Streets & Trips\Templates\New North American Map.stt

    For MapPoint 2009 and presumably with streets and trips it's under Application Data / ProgramData.. for instance for MapPoint it is

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Microsoft MapPoint\16.0\Templates - XP
    - or -
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Microsoft MapPoint\16.0\Templates - Vista

    Re: Mappoint 2009 pushpins

    I need some help. I changed to MP2009 running XP. I have an old file MP2002 file that I opened with MP2009. I can't seem to get the pushpins to work on the old file. I did the steps MP06All336PushpinImages.zip listed for this fix. However I can not find the 2009 directory. The pushpins work on new maps but not the old file. Any suggestions?

    MPPushpin.zip I used this program but I can not find the corrcet directory.
