    Runtime Mappoint

    Is it possible to embed Mappoint into an Access 2003 MDE program so that I don't need to provide the Mappoint CD's.

    It's not unfortunately, you need to go through the MapPoint installation in order to use it in a program. The CD's are necessary because there is about 1GB of data with MapPoint, all the streets and other mapping data.

    To bad. What about making an image of both CD's so that I can use only one CD to install Mappoint along with my Access application?

    You can do that but the Disk 2 RUN CD has to be mounted when your App runs - so you are no further ahead.

    If you really want to do this go for the Map Server / Location Server approach.

    You can do a Full Install, then the Disc 2 does not need to be mounted.

    You could burn to a Data DVD and they would both fit, they are not going to both fit on a Data CD no matter what compression you try
