I have a crack ---- but it's not for this program

and I don't need GPS to find it


On a more serious note I have been making a trail for about two days and the program hasn't crashed once.
Kudos for Microsoft

Looks like Larry was not bluffing, they really fixed it . I tested it between Atlantic City, NJ, and Toronto. I experienced no issue with the GPS Trail feature either.

The crack is accomplished in four simple steps. Follow these steps carefully and in the correct order:

1. Purchase a new copy of S&T 2009
2. Install it on one computer.
3. Register it online.

Now be sure you have done those three steps BEFORE you attempt this next step, or you'll lock up the whole program.

4. Find a big mirror, look directly into it and yell, "YOU *****!"

After that, you'll have unrestricted access to the program.

60 days is a long time.

Why so serious?


And on a more serious note, this should put a _ s - m - i - l - e _ on your face. I finally got 2009 to become unresponsive. I use gpsgate 2.6: anyhow I opened up another program that tried to take the serial port away and S&T jumped to 0.00000 by 0.00000 and then back again. My 800 mhz machine took about 5 minutes to draw this trail, but it did not crash. As someone who has been using S&T for years I find this amazing and what took MS so long to do this.

I just downloaded Microsoft Streets and Trips 2009. I'm disapointed that their maps are not up-to-date. My son has live in a housing development in southwest Omaha for two years and his street isn't even shown yet. A street in which my daughter lives in Meriden, Kansas is located on the map about a quarter mile west of where it actually is. Also, the street names for some of the county roads is not up-to-date yet. I guess I'll wait until 2010 streets and trips comes out to see if they have updated anything. I wouldn't waste my money.

Yes, 2 to 3 years seems to be the norm these days. A few years back there was an excellent three-page long article on this topic published by PocketGPSWorld.com. It is a very good reading for anyone at all interested in this subject. Here's the link http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/navteq.php Make sure you read page 2 and 3, too. Great reading.

It is working great on my geriatric laptop. I am really digging it. Ok back to checking it out.

Gosh, firasadiq, you come here, to a Microsoft Streets & Trips GPS forum where the DEVELOPERS of the software who work with and for Microsoft log on to communicate with and help those who have P-U-R-C-H-A-S-E-D a copy of the new software ... and you ask for a "crack", and you call ME an *****???

YOU are the *****!
Marvin Hlavac
TechnoGuy, is the word "geriatric" to describe the profession the laptop is used for, or the old age of the laptop?

bikerjoe and firasadiq, thanks guys for testing the 'Censored Words' feature . Perhaps we shouldn't be too harsh on each other, though. We all make mistakes. By the way, we haven't yet even said welcome to the forum, firasadiq!

I installed the trial and am reasonably pleased so far. Assuming a price similar to past editions, I will definitely buy the update.

I've tried a few routes that I've had to force with my old 2006 version of S&Ts, and all, so far, have fixed prior problems. None of my past issues had anything to do with errors in the streets themselves - it was the old routing algorithm. By inserting stops, I could force a better path (even as reported by MS's estimate of time or distance). Anyway, good job MS - thanks.

There is one minor implementation detail I noticed that I'd like to see you change. My install created a 280MB file in my "Documents and Settings" folder and I don't recall having the option to have it installed in another directory. If I missed an option on the install - I apologize.

Here's the path where the file was installed on my machine:
Code:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Microsoft Streets & Trips\16.0\Data\USAARTS.MDB
