do you have installed the visual studio 2010 SP1 runtime system ?

https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=5555

I have rebuilt MapView now
Your attached version does not work for me on Win 7 x64

I failed to install the visual studio 2010 SP1 runtime system because of a newer version already installed

I confirm my old version of mapview still works

Have you tried davide's upgrade version attached on the post right before yours?

Yes. I unzipped everything to the folder where I had my old version and it worked without a problem.

I'll be honest, I've done very little personal programming in any respect for a while, Luke's asked if I could fix some bugs, I can try and take a look at a few other bits this weekend too, if others are having problems

That's kind of you !

But as soon as someone make it work, this means it is just an install issue, isn't it ?

I have an old version that works well, so I use it

Well, if I can squeeze the time, I'll wrap up an installer or something. If you use my builds though, you'll need .NET v3.5; I can't really remember all the other details at the minute

Really? because I use VS2008, which can't target .NET v4. I assume if you loaded a copy into VS2010, it'll have upgraded it.

Anyhoo, I had no time to work on this at the weekend :( Sorry

FYI: on Win8 version, i get heaps of errors and cant add new maps into the game without it crashing so i have been forced to install a Virtual Machine and boot up XP again, once i do that, this is the best version of Mapview out there ( mostly because of the new features PMPROG added for me).

Hello there

I would like to contribute in the coding.

I saw
https://sourceforge.net/p/xcmapedit/code/HEAD/tree/trunk/dev/
svn checkout svn:https://svn.code.sf.net/p/xcmapedit/code/trunk xcmapedit-code
https://github.com/pmprog/OpenXCOM.Tools/trunk

I wanted to learn about how the routes are stored.. but there was too much hairy scary code.

I noted that the routes arent working in this new version, but like more the pmprog version

Reviewed the code and I think it needs some structural improvements like:
1- Error handling.
2- Organize some of the classes by functionality.
3- Separate and reuse code.

Anyway let me know if I can help

PS - Didnt experience any problem installing and running the code

Feel free to fork my repo (btw, there's no "/trunk" on the end), as it has a few changes luke83 asked for in.

One of my plans was to do some of the improvements you suggested, but time and motivation were issues.

Luke also PM'd me an error he was having, I've not even looked at it yet, but if it's something you feel like you want a shot at, I (or Luke) can send you on the information
