    Tried reinstalling mappoint, no joy. Tried mappoint.exe /register, again no joy.

    Any ideas what services/settings for the COM components? AFAIK all my COM settings are default on this machine, I've had no cause to tweak them.

    The odd thing is, I fired up VS 2005 and tried to create an app with the Mappoint control embedded, but I get the same issue. I've tried the /RegServer option as well, again no luck.

    I've done some researching, and several other people have run into this problem with MapPoint North America as well. I'd be interested in seeing if anyone with a working MP Europe 2006 + SD setup has the reg keys:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MapPoint.Application
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MapPoint.Application.13
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MapPoint.Application.EU
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MapPoint.Application.EU.13

    as well as the contents of those keys and and the contents of any class IDs that they refer to.

    The only fix I've found so far is a complete reinstall of windows, and thats just not practical for this PC at the moment

    Regards,

    What about uninstalling Mappoint, rebooting and then installing it from scratch?

    Sure, I've attached a zip file with a bunch of export files of my registry showing those keys and some more.

    Good Luck!

    Now thats very interesting

    I was missing all the application and map references in the registry, not to mention the Class IDs as well.

    Upon importing the missing entries using your registry capture, streetdeck now recognises Mappoint Europe 2006 and I was able to search on addresses

    Definately a Mappoint installation issue - the PC had no prior version and I tried uninstall-reboot-clean filesystem and registry-reboot-install without any luck

    Anyhow, now this works, I might install it on my Car PC tomorrow and give it a try assuming you still need log data and testing?

    Bringing back an old thread...

    This seems to work pretty well, using it with Virtual Earth as well.. Problems I have experienced so far are:

    Contrast in Day mode... the sat/nav section of my screen is really white and bright and I cant see hardly any of the roads in normal map mode.. Virtual Earth mode seems to be better. I just run it in Night mode all the time to get round this problem.. But I have only experienced it in Streetdeck on the Sat/Nav screen.. never had it before with any other Sat/Nav programs or nay other screen. If I tilt my 7" screen right back almost 45 Degrees it looks normal but is hard to reach to touch the top lol.

    Routing.. maybe a map point error but it seems to miss out roundabouts/junctions... On my way to work this morning I only had about 5 instructions on turns over a 40 min journey, whereas normally using other programs there are well over 40 turns on my journey.. It didn't seem to be picking up most of the turns and notifying me of them.

    Everything else I tried worked flawlessly

    Sorted out my contrast issue by adjusting the screen contrast lol.

    It works pretty well in the UK. Misses out some roundabouts, and turns.... and the rerouting doesn't take in to account the direction your traveling (but there is a thread on that somewhere else). Sometimes the fastest way routed is for sure not the fastest way lol... Other than that, seems good

    Unhappy What to install first

    I'm trying to install SD whole week now but no go. I had some hardware problems and think I have now messed up the configuration. So I want to start all over again, starting by installing winXP.

    What program do I have to install first?? SD or mappoint2006-Europe? I think this does make a difference.

    I installed Mappoint first and then Streetdeck. Worked fine.

    Remember to start Mappoint manually for the first time after installing it so you can agree to its license agreement as you cant agree to it if you start it up for the first time within Streetdeck. Streetdeck stays on top.
