    Mappoint Custom Installation

    I am new to Mappoint. I have developed a VB application. I would like to push the Mappoint installation from the server side. (I have end user licenses). The data almost is 1 GB. I don't need all of the available features from Mappoint. Is there a way to restrict the files and file sizes?
    Thanks.

    Hi,

    I think this is perfecly legal as long as an original mappoint CD is deliverd with each installation.

    I never tryed this, but you could make a setup that:
    • - copy and installs the OCX component
      - copy the map data files you need
      - edit some registry settings


    I dont know which registry settings are needed and witch files exacly needed and witch not. If nobody else knows it is up to you with trial and error

    If you succeed please come bakc here then others can benefit from it too

    Did you read this from MSDN?

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...intControl.asp

    It walks you thru distributing the MapPoint Control run-time with your VB6 app. The "Create an installation disc for an application created using the MapPoint Control" is the important part, if you already have the right number of end user licenses. I've just tested it on one machine and it seems to work, plus you can modify the autorun.inf, so that the installation of the MapPoint Control is not displayed, so the enduser only sees your app installing.

    I believe if you do the minimum installation from a network drive and a full copy of the 2nd "Run" CD is in the same location, the app will call the info from there. So you only have to install CD1 and the control will run the "Run" CD from the network when needed, same as if it were in your CD drive. I inadvertently found that out from a removable drive, but I didnt test it fully, as that wasnt my goal.

    Hope that helps,
