The filter option is a miracle to use. Very smart. There's one thing I have a problem with, and that is repositioning (editing) points which were (most likely) incorrectly recorded, and are off-road. If I select a point I can move it to a new location. However, the line attached to it remains at it's position. Hence, the point is not realy moving, because when you click it again from the list, it is in the old position.

Are you planning to enhance functionality so you can move points?

Hi kostermw,

actually there is functionality to move points and at least I can use it. Some people unfortunately have problems with it. Questions are:

Do you use Windows Vista?
Do you use a Firewall?
Is there something that blocks HTTP-Requests from IeEmbed.exe to RouteConverter.exe?
<actually there is functionality to move points and at least I can use it. Some people unfortunately have problems with it. Questions are:>

Do you use Windows Vista? Yes I do
Do you use a Firewall? Yes, both Vista, and my router have firewalls.
Is there something that blocks HTTP-Requests from IeEmbed.exe to RouteConverter.exe? Yes, I blocked Routeconverter to act as a server (found that behaviour suspicious)


From you questions, I guess I need to unblock routeconverter?

Unblock IeEmbed.exe as it needs to transfer the new coordinates after you've moved a position. And since it's a separate process and inside a Webbrowser, I choose HTTP calls to RouteConverter.exe.
I scribled down what I did and concluded I cannot make it work without giving up my web server.

Manually unblocking it did not help. Next removed it completely from the firewall list, and then Vista asked the same question again as the first time when I started your program. This time I ensured that I chose 'Allow to act as a server', but again, moving the points did not realy update their coordinates.

If port 80 is being used, then the firewall in my router should not be a problem. Although ... already have a webserver up-and-running, and port 80 is mapped to my server!! Oh-oh. That's a pitty.

Any workarounds?

Actually, I'm using a call to the operating system that asks for an unsed port, which means, too, that you cannot predict the port number.
So, it may well be the firewall in the 'router'. Will check this out and report back to you.
I guess not, since the HTTP calls address 'localhost' and thus do not leave the machine where IeEmbed.exe and RouteConverter.exe are running on.

I guess you are correct ... what a petty, it is such a smart program to use.

Since quite a few Vista users seem to have that problem: Would you be willing to try a small debug program? Then I'd start to implement one and try to find out, what's the reason with all the Vista hassle.

Or someone donates a Vista machine... (As you may guess, I have learned to like XP ;-)
