bulk update 2006 .ptm to 2009 (then to 2013) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have a lot (18K) of .ptm files created in MapPoint 2006.
    We want to upgrade to 2013, but 2013 wont open 2006 files directly. 2009 will and then 2013 can open these files.

    So I plan to do a vb.net app to automate opening the files, get past the "Do you want to ... " dialogs then save them.

    I have already started something using VB.NET and MapPoint 2013 which complained when copied .exe plus Interop.MapPoint.dll to a 2009 pc (Is Interop.MapPoint.dll generated for a version?.. )

    Up to date info on programming MapPoint seems to be sparse..

    Can anyone point me in the right direction.

    (Also need to get hold of 2009..)

  • You don't say what the error is, but what you are doing will not register the MapPoint COM interface properly with Windows.

    Use the standard MapPoint installer, and it will do the registration for you and copy the correct files to their correct places.
