View Full Version : Uninstall MP 2011 causes missing reference

09-03-2011, 10:37 AM
I had both MP 2009 and 2011 installed on my machine. After uninstalling 2011 I noticed a "Missing Reference" in an Access app that was created using a reference to MP 2009. I was able to figure out how to fix that by browsing to the dll for 2009. However, opening a form now causes a run-time error 429: ActiveX component can't create object. This line causes the error: objMapApp.Visible = True.

As I've mentioned on here before, I know very little about VBA, so forgive the dumb questions.

Thanks, Dale

Hi Dale,

I didn't see your mention of little knowledge of VBA.
Try this:
In the Start-> Run dialog box, paste the following line

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft MapPoint 2009\MapPoint.exe" /regserver

Now see if your program works.

I ended up uninstalling both versions and re-installed 2009. It's been a week or so since I did this and believe that fixed the problem. Thanks.
