Hi,

if i optimize in cities all works find, testet up to

16 points.

6 point, 2 points in 3 differnt big cities. Now

the optimize routine won't return. Not even after

10min. Did the optimizing by myself (greedy with

a graph and calculated the distances between

the nodes with mappoint) - it returns after

2min20 with the correct solution.

Problem is ... if i do the same in the first scenario

i need very much time just to get the distances

between the points.

Now i got a few questions:

1. Why does MapPoint hang up?

2. Can i predict it by any chance that it won't

optimize correct, beforehand?

3. Can i cancel the optimize method after

5 sek? Couldn't find a way to stop him.

4. Is there a faster way to get the distances

between the points?

5. Is there a boundary what MapPoint can optimize?

6. If i use air-distance, to which point i can use

them to optimize the points?

Thankful for any help, does ms delete such threads,

couldn't find more then 1 thread about this.

Read about people using mappoint with thousands of

points, are they insane or do they something i don't?
