    Using MapPoint Control for Web App

    Hello,

    I'm new to MapPoint, and I'm trying to understand its potential uses and its limitations. From what I understand, it sounds like I could create a website that uses the MapPoint Active X control. However, from a licensing standpoint this is not allowed, as Microsoft wants each user of the control to have a license. Is that correct or am I mistaken?

    Thanks,
    Attila

    That's correct... "Hacking" Mappoint is not allowed, but is possible (but a little bit hard to code, but I used to, for "fun" )...

    You have to purchase a MapPoint Location Server or use the Microsoft MapPoint WebService through Internet... And for this you have to code a client for this WebService (easily made with C#/VB.NET/IBM WebSphere)...
