    You gave me an idea... why not comparing both logfiles...

    Logfile from "normal" mode:
    Code:
    	...
    Init Loading Logo - Initialization time 0.000 / 0.235 seconds.
    
    
    INFO: CDrawWnd::Create - Main render window successfully created!
    INFO: CDrawWnd::Create - Creating main application...
    INFO: CUVAppData::OnCreate - Navigation controller successfully initialized!
    INFO: 
    
    	Window / Direct3D Create - Initialization time 0.015 / 0.250 seconds.
    ...
    Logfile from "dev" mode:
    Code:
    ...
    	Init Loading Logo - Initialization time 0.015 / 0.172 seconds.
    
    
    INFO: CDrawWnd::Create - Main render window successfully created!
    INFO: CDrawWnd::Create - Creating main application...
    INFO: CUVAppData::OnCreate - Navigation controller successfully initialized!
    INFO: CNAVController::CreateHostWindow - NewMap.
    WARNING: CNAVController::CreateHostWindow - NewMap - MapPoint North America can't run because it is not registered on your system, or it can't be found. Install MapPoint North America and try again.
    INFO: 
    
    	Window / Direct3D Create - Initialization time 0.000 / 0.172 seconds.
    ...
    In Bold is the difference between "normal" mode and "dev" mode. But in "normal" mode I do not see any european mappoint initialisation (maybe because I cannot go further because of registration)...

    I had north america mappoint installed, I deinstalled it and after I did tests... I did also tests on another machine which never had north america mappoint installed... still same results... still wondering why... Is there something to do with windows xp regional settings (I have "English (United States)" set although I'm in Germany...)?

    Hope this will help getting BETA going further...

    The problem is it tries to create a north america map first regardless and when that fails it then tries europe. There are multiple failure points though, and only one of them was caught to try europe which probably only happens under a certain specific set of circumstances.

    Hi

    I currently use centrafuse & Dest 6... (Like dest but not sure about CF) as a field service engineer covering the whole southern half of the UK i guess i could give it fairly good test (1500 miles a week av!) and the logs would make filling out time sheets a breeze, But the 15min limit bothers me.....

    I'll give it a go & see how it does.....

    Thanks

    Steve

    The executable has been updated, this version should allow the europe maps to be created. To save build time only navigation is included in this exe, most other parts or the program have been stripped out. Once the nav basics are verified working, a more complete new version will be posted.

    To install, just copy this exe over the current one in program files\streetdeck.

    Unfortunately I can only run it in "dev" mode because of licence problem and this build does not seem containing it... so I can't further test... I do not get enough infos in logfile in "normal" mode before registration to know whether it loads european maps or not...

    The logfile looks like this:
    Code:
    INFO: CNAVController::CreateHostWindow - Creating mappoint host window.
    INFO: CNAVController::CreateHostWindow - GetCtrlSite.
    INFO: CNAVController::CreateHostWindow - PaneState.
    INFO: CNAVController::CreateHostWindow - EnableBusyDialog.
    INFO: 
    
    	OnPreCreate - Initialization time 0.265 / 0.265 seconds.
    
    
    INFO: CDrawWnd::Create - DirectX object successfully created!
    INFO: 
    
    	RenderWindow PreCreate - Initialization time 0.188 / 0.453 seconds.
    
    
    INFO: 
    
    	RenderWindow Create - Initialization time 0.015 / 0.468 seconds.
    
    
    INFO: 
    
    	Init Loading Logo - Initialization time 0.125 / 0.593 seconds.
    
    
    INFO: CDrawWnd::Create - Main render window successfully created!
    INFO: CDrawWnd::Create - Creating main application...
    INFO: CUVAppData::OnCreate - Navigation controller successfully initialized!
    INFO: 
    
    	Window / Direct3D Create - Initialization time 0.000 / 0.593 seconds.
    I don't know whether it is a good sign or not...

    StreetDeck Europe Beta

    Copied the new .EXE over, now appears to work, will do some testing when I get back from work.

    Looks very impressive at first looks, will provide initial feedback after.

    Noted that new .EXE was significantly smaller than previous i.e 3.xx Mbyte as opposed to 5.xx MByte.

    Does it work with Mappoint 2006, as the Europe(English) version is now released?

    Just installed Mappoint Europe 2004. Seems to work.

    Then installed Beta of SD. Software went in first time, but since comes up with the 'demo expired' message.

    Just updated me exe - still getting 'demo expired'

    The laptop has never had another version of SD installed. What gives?

    Until last week, I did have S&T 2006 (North America) installed? And I've currently got Centrafuse installed as well?

    Any offers? I need to test this or my life won't be complete!

    Cool

    Can I buy a code for SD to get it to work? Or am I stuck to a time limited beta for Europe that doesn't work because of problems with the time limiter?

    I'll eat my words if something other than SD is to blame, but I'm a bit frustrated at the mo - the future is within touching distance but my arms aren't long enough!

    I don't know if it's possible to change the initial setup options too - to remove satellite radio setup. It's not (AFAIK) used in Europe. Over here, the alternative to AM/FM is DAB, which is different to satellite radio.

    Searching for places doesn't work. It only lets you search for US places. Also a country field would be good.
