Hi

We are using Mappoint in a winforms application.
This software will be installed on 3-4 computers which are networked.
Do i need to install Mappoint on all these computers or is there any way i can access it from all the computers by installing it on a server?


Thanks in Advance

If i remember correctly you need more than one license and you can install it on the server computer

For an Intranet application krenkey is correct. Technically you could install on the server and server up maps to your Intranet clients in the browser -- but you still need a license for each client.

For a Winforms application however I think that is different. It does need to be installed on each computer.

However - you can copy the install DVD to a network drive and then install from there. For your version of MapPoint, see if you can do a Partial Install or Run from DVD as opposed to a Full install. This would save disk space on the client computers, but it might run a little slower because it would be pulling the maps from the network drive instead of the local hard drive.
