Mappoint app or activex control?

P: n/a
Gil
I am automating mappoint in access and was wondering what is a better
way to have the mappoint map running all the time:
1.call it as a seperate application
OR
2. as an activex control within a form in access.

Both will give me the same data results, but I am more concerned about
performance.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Gil

Performance will be nearly identical. I've used it as a separate
application, and the users love it.

MapPoint is faster if your code and MapPoint are both in the same
process. But if you have an external app, you can force MapPoint's
garbage control if you need to do that trick. (MapPoint does a memory
clean up when you minimise&restore)
