  • MapPoint

    I just did an install of RoadRunner and MapPoint 2006. Both run fine individually, but I can't get RoadRunner to load MapPoint. I've restarted the machine a couple times after I've installed.

    My GPS settings from the config:
    GPS Mode: Mappoint
    GPS Path: C:\Program Files\Microsoft MapPoint\MapPoint.exe
    GPS Window Name: Mappoint
    GPS Port: 7 (same port as set in Mappoint)
    Mappoint Map: North America
    Default Country: United States
    Default City: (none entered)
    Any clues to what I'm doing wrong?

    do you know if mappoint is getting started at all, because i'm pretty sure your window name is wrong i think its suppose to be Map - Microsoft Mappoint
    but not 100% sure.
    as for your gps port thats wrong you can't have 1 port for 2 apps, you need xport or gpsgate to split the ports 1 for mappoint and 1 for rr.

      MapPoint doesn't start at all under RR. I changed to a different port (I already use GPSGate), but still no luck.

      For the name, I took it from the sticky:
      MapPoint

          what skin are you using... 99% of the skins out there dont support mappoint. What version of RR are you running... some of the betas out there do not have the mappoint form in them.

            It's the only skin that came with RoadRunner, BMV2. As for the version, I just downloaded it from the version dated 12/31/07 that's on the download site.

            Is there supposed to be any COM addons listed in MapPoint for RoadRunner? If not, that may be the problem because there's none listed at all.

            From the FAQ's:
            MapPoint

            -Set the GPS option to "Mappoint" or "Menu".
            -Specify if you use Mappoint North America or Europe
            -Specify your GPS Serial port -- your GPS MUST be set for NMEA
            -Specify the default Coutry/City for searching locations (optional)
            -Make sure Mappoint is propperly setup and that the types of locations you'd like to search for are selected in Mappoint (for the nearby feature).

            Note: Streets & Trips is NOT meant to be interfaced with any application (including RR), but if that's what you want to use, take a look HERE.
            It doesn't say anything about needing any special skins. There are 18 MapPoint jpg's and 7 MapPoint skn's in the skin dir.
