After days of searching the web including ‘Experts Exchange’ for a resolution to this problem I decided that I would have to post the question. Can anyone help?
I simply want to be able to use MapPoint from Access.
Reinstalled 3 times with absolutely nothing else running
and removing all traces that I could find of earlier installations
I've tried all the following to register MapPoint
"E:\Program Files\Microsoft MapPoint Europe\MapPoint.exe" /regserver
References in Access:
Microsoft MapPoint 11.0 Object Library (Europe)
Microsoft MapPoint Control 11.0
Microsoft MapPoint Utilities 1.0 Type Library
(Will load either 1 of the top 2 and the third reference)
Tried the following
Dim MPApp As MapPoint.Application
Set MPApp = GetObject(, "MapPoint.Application") 'Run-time error '429' ActiveX component can't create object
Function IsProgInstalled(StrProg As String) As Boolean
Dim obj As Object
On Error Resume Next
Set obj = CreateObject(StrProg & ".Application")
IsProgInstalled = (Err.Number = 0)
If IsProgInstalled Then
Debug.Print StrProg & " is Installed"
Debug.Print StrProg & " is Not installed"
Results from above
