How To: Access StreetMap data from a network drive


StreetMap datasets can be accessed from a network drive instead of a local hard drive. The path to the dataset must be an absolute full path; UNC pathnames are not allowed.


  1. Place the StreetMap data CD in the desired network CD-ROM drive or copy the contents of the CD to the desired network folder.
  2. The installation should start automatically. If not, double-click Setup.exe to begin the installation.
  3. Click Next. Accept the license agreement and click Next.
  4. Click the dropdown list to the left of the dataset name and select 'Will be installed to run from network'.
  5. Click Next twice to complete the network installation.
