    RR and mappoint

    I've got mappoint 2006 installed, and and just installed the latest RR but I cant figure out how to tell the RRconfig.exe to use mappoint.

    I selected the Mappoint radio button, and even went so far as to give the complete path to MapPoint.exe (including the string "MapPoint.exe" at the end of the path statement) in both the MaP Monkey path box as well as in the GPS Path box.

    I have also tried using the menu radio button, but when I click on GPS in RR, the menu pops up, but when I click on Mappoint, nothing happens.

    I have the GPS Port set to "4" I also tried "COM4"

    I've been referencing this post:
    How do I setup my GPS Application ?
    but it doesnt seem to be working for me.

    Am I missing something?

    if you press gps and a menu comes up you have the menu radio button selected in rr. Either that or the skin ur using doesnt directly use the GPS command when it launches gps.

    I have been switching it back and forth between menu and mappoint. I tried the BMV skin and the LSX3.2 skin. Can you recommend a skin to try that you know works with mappoint?

    also, another wierd thing is that i have the text "demo" in yellow letters at the top of the RR window. Is that normal?

    oh geez that was dumb.

    OK so BMV skin should work for mappoint. Is there anyway to enable error logging of RR to find out whats wrong? Or could someone give me a screenshot of the GPS RRconfig part to see how it should be configured?

    you just have to set the GPS port and select "Mapppoint" in RRConfig. If it works you'll see a panel like the video controls, and the map where the "video" would show in the video player. If you see your desktop behind the controls you either have an old mappoint version or don't have it installed right.

    I just installed my GPS and MapPoint 2006 and I'm having the same problem. When I click on the Navi button (lsvoid 3.2) I just get an hour glass for a split second, then nothing. I have my comport set correctly in both the RR config and the skin option.

    I have everything set just as Guino spelled out in the above post. I'm sure I'm missing something silly, but if anyone can help out - it will be greatly appreciated.

    BTW -
    I loaded mappoint outside of RR and gave it my gps settings... everything appeared to work properly, it's just that RR isn't launching the application.

    From what I'm testing here it is working fine... maybe there's a newer mappoint version which has a new control and I'm not aware of it. maybe you want to post your mappoint.ocx (zipped) so I can compare them -- or at least the properties (date/time/size/version etc).

    Guino and Opticalc -

    I've determined that (for me) this is not a RR problem. The skin I am using (lsvoid) doesn't support Mappoint. I believe the Nav button on this skin is trying to launch IG by default. I tried adding another button that just launched an external app (MP) and it *kind of* worked.

    I don't know if this sheds any light on the situation for opticalc, but this is a moot issue now for me as I am going to be using Iguidance now for various reasons.

    Thanks!
