    updates

    I know you can go online and get updates for map point that have new roads and stuff like that. but my computer that has it is not on the internet. Is there any way to download the updated map to a cd or whatever then install that update on the computer later?

    The MapPoint updates only include construction information. Eg "this road is due to experience construction at this point"

    The Download Center has the construction updates (i.e. roads being re-contructed for routing) -

    MapPoint 2004 / S&T 2004 -
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

    MapPoint 2002 / S&T 2002 -
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

    You could download this to any Internet connected computer even if it does not have MapPoint and then move it to your non-Internet connected computer.

    Yeah. MP doesn't see the file I downloaded. I found where you can update from a file but a .dat file is not one of the excepted formates.
