Installing and using Map Point 2011 on a server RRS feed

  • Question

  • We downloaded the 60 day free trial of MapPoint 2011 to the server to see if it will be useful to our business. We have 5 computers that would need to use it.  How can it be shared over the server so that everyone can have access??  So far it will only open on the one computer.

  • There are different ways, if you just need one person to access at a time, you could use something like TeamViewer or VNC for people to connect to the server desktop and run remotely.

    If you load all the installation files on the server and install to a central server location, you can install on each of the desktop without using as much disk space on each computer.

    If you want people to be able to use it simultaneously, you need licenses for each user. I think using a server is more hassle than it's worth actually, just install on each computer?
