    Hello,
    is this software considered part of the microsoft office suite ?

    My boss wich was accustomed to this tool in his previous company asked me if it is still possible to buy it, somewhere...i watched on ebay but only found very old versions...
    looks like it is available on torrents trackers (2011 version)...but does it require any cd key ? how would it be possible to buy one ?
    would it be possible to use an Office activator for that product ?

    Thanks for your help.

    • It's not a part of Office suite.
    • Latest version is 2013 and there are two separate editions for North America and Europe.
    • It is long deprecated, thus there is no official channel to buy from.
    • Scene release or (then) MSDN ISOs are easy to find, if you've to opt for it.

    i could find one of the scene release, 2011 europe, but it's in english o_O and looks like the activation send me to my microsoft account, and it just need a validation...no serial key...
    Any idea were to find a msdn version in French, 2011 or 2013 ? even if it's the trial version it's ok.

    Why bother when you have MUCH MUCH better maps free on your phone?

    I used to use MapPoint primarily due to its ability to automatically map the most efficient route to cover a list of destinations. I haven't found anything that does that these days.
