Getting a lat/long from MapPoint.ActiveX

I've submitted this question on the MapPoint discussion groups, but here as well, since I need all the help I can get.

I've used the MapPoint ActiveX with C# for quite some time, and found it really works well for me.  But I have never been able get a lat/long for a given valid address.  I simply could never find the method/object to use for this, but I've always been able to work around it one way or another.  But now I explicitly need the latitude and longitude for a given address, in order to keep my project going forward.

Does anybody know how to retrieve this information?  I presumed that once I've created an ActiveMap.Location object, that I would be able to get it from there.  But I can't find how.

I’d really appreciate it if someone could help.  I’m in a serious pickle.

Thanks for the input.  I was afraid they didn't support it.  But now that I know, I can take another tact.
