I have installed MapPoint 2011 for North America TRIAL version on my system (running on Win XP), 3 days back.

From Start -> My Programmes, it works fine without any error. I am refering to Interop.MapPoint Application Object in one of my sample ASP.NET web project. Then it is failing to instantiate at the following line throwing above error -

Dim objApp As New MapPoint.Application.

From another thread in this forum, I founfd that it is EULA problem & verified in my HKEY_USER\MapPoint\18.0\USA & found that there is a EULA value of Dword with value 1.

But still I am getting this error. I have gone to dcomcnfg & set full permission to everyone. But still I am getting this error. Can any one help me resolve on this ?

Thanks in advance

MapPoint is not designed to work as an ASP component, in fact the license prohibits internet use.

However, there may be some cases such as when you have a license for all users and it's on an Intranet, where it would be legal, and there may be technical work-arounds, there have been lots of discussions on this in this forum, although I have to admit I'm not one who has tried this or gotten it working.

I would recommend to search this forum more. Here's a long thread I turned up:


Have you tried everything on there? I would recommend to post follow up as a continuation of that thread.
