Microsoft fixed a couple add-ins that had broken with the release of MapPoint 2006. The add-ins were unsupported, but highly useful to many of you using OLAP or importing .shp and .mif files directly into MapPoint. The updates’ll allow users running MapPoint 2002 – MapPoint 2010 to use the COM add-ins.
-MapPoint 2002-2010 OLAP Wizard Add-in allows you to perform queries on OLAP cube (.cub) files and create data maps from the query results. More info: MapPoint OLAP Add-in Sample on MSDN
-MapPoint 2002-2010 Spatial Data Import COM Add-in allows you to import ESRI SHAPE (.shp) and MapInfo Data (.mif) files into Microsoft MapPoint 2002-2010. This add-in is provided "as is" and as an unsupported sample of a Microsoft Visual Basic application that incorporates the Microsoft MapPoint 2002-2010 object model.
