    unexpected error;quitting

    Hi there,

    I have a question - and I'm somewhat desperate:

    I programmed an ActiveX server Exe using the Mappoint control ( VB ) . If I start it as Administrator, there is no problem with it, but if I change to a user with restricted rights the error occurs and my application stops.

    The Mappoint control is within a usercontrol. I tried to put it on the form, but the same error occurs. I changed the rights for the User and the error still occurs.

    Can you help me?

    Greetings,

    Syd

    Hi Syd,

    I had a similar problem which I think you might benefit from! I too wrapped a Map control into a UserControl and distributed this with my application - a nice way of encapsulating just the features you need.

    Anyway, I installed MapPoint on all the client workstations where users have basic user rights (no admins or power users). I noticed that the map control errored the first time they ran my app. This problem didn't occur on my workstation where I am admin.

    I found that to fix this, simply start the full MS MapPoint app, closing it down again and then running up the application again seemed to do the job. I am guessing that it's a permissions issue on the registry - if you notice the first time you run MapPoint it asks you to accept a EULA - it must record the fact that you have accepted this in a registry value somewhere which normal users can't get to.

    I hope that's of some help.

    Thanks for your fast answer

    I'll try that - first problem is, that it is a Mappoint Runtime version that is installed on the workstations.

    Perhaps I must set the registry key then, because I there's no Eula dialog coming up.

    Now I'll try a vmware box and go checking.
    Bye for now
