    Open Map Speed

    Hi

    I have a pre-saved map which has approx 10,000 pushpins. It is taking some time to open the map each time it is required.

    Is there a way to open the pre-saved map at the start of my application and

    a) The map being deactivated whlist the other maps are active.

    b) The pre-saved map becoming active when that procedure is called?

    Thanks in advance

    I'm not sure if I understand you correctly, but I'll try an answer...
    It sounds like you have a program/application that is calling MapPoint to open a map?

    A program can have multiple MapPoint applications open at once.
    So if you're in a multi-threaded environment, you could start a thread that starts MapPoint with the slow map, whilst another thread does the rest of the initialisation/etc.

    The slow map could be loaded with MapPoint set to "not visible". Then set the visible flag to make it appear.
