View Full Version : Cannot see MapPoint in DCOMCNFG

07-16-2009, 03:58 PM
Hello all,

I have an asp.net application that accesses MapPoint 2006 through interop. It has been working fine until recently when the network admin changed the password of the user under whom the instance of MapPoint 2006 runs. When I went to update the password using DCOMCNFG, the MapPoint entries are no longer available. I got the admin to reinstall MapPoint but the entries are still missing.

Does anybody have a clue as to why this is happening?

Any comments or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Try to register mappoint manually. Go to command interpreter, switch to the mappoint directory and type:
Mappoint.exe /Registerserver

I think it might just be /regserver. I never used /registerserver. ?

Hi Eric,

Yes you are right, it is /regserver
