    MapPoint Template Format

    Are there any ways to determine, by looking at the RAW Microsoft MapPoint Template, which version of Microsoft MapPoint (North America vs Europe and Year) was used to create the Template ?

    Where is that information embedded in the MapPoint Template ? Where can I find the format of the MapPoint Template ?

    Thanks

    You can do this in VB with the following.

    'Get Region
    Sub GetMapRegion()

    Dim objApp As New MapPoint.Application

    'enter path for the template
    objApp.NewMap "C:\template.ptt"

    'Set up the application
    objApp.Visible = True
    objApp.UserControl = True

    'Is it the North American or European map?
    If objApp.Region = geoMapNorthAmerica Then
    MsgBox "The map is the North American map."
    Else
    MsgBox "The map is the European map."
    End If

    End Sub

    'Get Version Number
    Sub ApplicationVersionNumber()

    Dim objApp As New MapPoint.Application

    objApp.NewMap "C:\mymapp.ptt"

    'Set up the application
    objApp.Visible = True
    objApp.UserControl = True

    'Get the application version number
    MsgBox "MapPoint version: " + objApp.Version

    End Sub
