When trying to run the .exe file I get the following message. You cannot install Microsoft MapPoint North America 2004 over a network unless you first perform an administrative installation. For more information about administrative installation of Microsoft MapPoint North America 2004 see the Deploy Microsoft MapPoint North America 2004 over a network Help topic, or read the readme file on the Disc. Any suggestions?????

If you are a system administrator, you can deploy MapPoint over a network by using standard command line options. You can also deploy MapPoint by using the Office Custom Installation Wizard. Documentation for the Office Custom Installation Wizard is located in the online Microsoft Office Resource Kit at: http://www.microsoft.com/office/ork/default.htm

Before you deploy MapPoint over a network, you must have a licensed copy of MapPoint for every computer on which you want to run it.

Create an administrative installation location:
Place the MapPoint Setup disc in your disk drive.
Open a command prompt window, and enter:
msiexec /a X:\mappoint\msmap\data.msiwhere X is your disc drive location.

The Administrative Installation Wizard starts.

Click Next.
Choose a network location for the administrative installation location, for example, \\machine\share\MapPoint\.
Follow the Administrative Installation Wizard on-screen instructions.
When you are finished creating the administrative installation location, users can install MapPoint either through an advertisement or by browsing to the location and double-clicking setup.exe.

Make MapPoint available on the network through advertising:
After you create an administrative installation location, you can make MapPoint available through advertising. Advertising is a Windows installer method for making a program available to the user without installing it. When the user attempts to use the program, the program is installed and run.

On a user's computer, open a command prompt window.
Type the following command:
msiexec /jm \\machine\share\MapPoint\msmap\data.msiwhere \\machine\share\MapPoint is the administrative installation location.

A shortcut is placed on the user's Start menu. When the user clicks this shortcut, the MapPoint setup is launched automatically.
