Silent install of MapPoint 2013 Europe RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I have made a silent install of MapPoint 2013 Europe, all good.  However, I can't get it to supress the activation screen and it's asking for either trial version usage or the entering of a product key.

    I've downloaded the software from the volume licensing portal, and there it states that a product key is not required - this doesn't match up with what I am seeing though.

    Can anyone help?

  • Hmm, yes that's odd.

    As you have probably gathered, there are two distributions for each MapPoint Desktop product.

      - The Retail / Trial version which requires an activation code or it times out after 14 days

      - The MSDN / Corporate / OEM version which does not require activation.

    Where exactly did you download from? I've downloaded from MSDN and Action Pack fulfillment and they were both the MSDN version.

    Are you sure you didn't get your downloads mixed up i.e. you earlier downloaded the trial version?

    Let us know how it goes.

  • Hi Eric,

    Thanks for the response.  The software was downloaded from volume license portal (see below screenshot).

    and this is what happens when I view the product key:

    but when I run the install I get asked for activation.  Help!!!
