you should install mappoint on your development machine as you will need the dlls to that referenced in your project, after you install mappoint create your VS solution and add a reference to the Microsoft.Mappoint dll under the com tab.
Then you can add the mappoint active x control to your windows form where you will be able to program against it

you will have to instantiate your mappoint object as follows (if you are using the northamerican map)
Note that the required dlls will not register if you are installing the European mappoint you should have the northamerican cd to install the dll.
MapPoint.Map objMap;
AxMappointControl1.NewMap(MapPoint.GeoMapRegion.geoMapNorthAmerica);
AxMappointControl1.Units = MapPoint.GeoUnits.geoKm;
objMap = AxMappointControl1.ActiveMap;

the code below is taken from the mappoint forums there is good references there
here is a link
http://www.mapforums.com/development/


// Create a new map
axMappointControl1.NewMap(MapPoint.GeoMapRegion.geoMapNorthAmerica);
 
// Create a new Map object
MapPoint.Map m = axMappointControl1.ActiveMap;

 
// Map location object
MapPoint.Location Loc;

 
// Locate the account based on information given
MapPoint.FindResults findResults = m.FindAddressResults(Address, City, string.Empty, string.Empty, ZipCode, 
MapPoint.GeoCountry.geoCountryUnitedStates);

 
object Index = 1;
 
Loc = findResults.get_Item(ref Index) as MapPoint.Location;

 
// Set the pushpin
MapPoint.Pushpin pin = m.AddPushpin(Loc, Name);
pin.Note = Code + "-" + LineNum;

 
// Set the balloon
pin.BalloonState = MapPoint.GeoBalloonState.geoDisplayBalloon;

 
// Go to the location
Loc.GoTo();
