  • == Microsoft Automap Streets Plus for Windows, version 5.0 ==


Microsoft Automap Streets Plus reads map data from a single file on the CD-ROM for the best performance. The map data file is 500 MB file and cannot be copied to the hard drive without copying the entire CD-ROM. Automap Streets Plus only recognizes the map data from the location where it was installed.

The following is a workaround that you can use to run Automap Streets Plus from a hard drive.

NOTE: This workaround requires almost 700 MB of hard disk space.


The following workaround describes some basic steps for copying the complete contents of the Automap Streets Plus CD-ROM to a hard drive using MS-DOS commands.

  1. Click the Start button, point to Programs, and then click MS-DOS Prompt.

  2. Type the following command to create an installation folder in which to store the Automap Streets Plus files on your hard drive:


  3. Type the following command to copy all the files from the Automap Streets Plus CD-ROM into the newly created folder:

    xcopy d:*.* /s c:

    where D is the letter of your CD-ROM drive and C is the letter of your hard drive.

  4. Type “Exit” (without the quotation marks) to return to Windows.

  5. Run Setup.exe from the C:folder on your hard drive.

  6. Follow the screen instructions to install Automap Streets Plus.

Automap Streets Plus should now run from your hard drive by reading the map data from the installation folder on your hard drive.

NOTE: This is a workaround. These steps may not work in all situations.
