Users of MPSuperShape v2.* can upgrade to v3.4 for free.

Note: Existing users of MPSuperShape v1.7 (or earlier) cannot upgrade for free. MPSuperShape v3.0 will automatically convert into trial mode, and you will need to purchase an upgrade license. See the Upgrade page for information on the current upgrade discounts.

The examples archive includes map files that are referenced in the MPSuperShape documentation. The XML Schema is not required for most users, but is useful if you wish to use the GML import/export options to transfer data in or out of MapPoint. Example files with the "_2013" suffix are versions for MapPoint 2013 which cannot load MapPoint 2006 map files.

Microsoft® MapPoint® 2006 (or later) must be installed before you install MPSuperShape.

The Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 (or later) is also required. This can be downloaded from the Microsoft website (Download Link for .NET 4.0).

A copy of the End User License Agreement is also available. This is included with the documentation.

MPSuperShape will add uninstall links to the Windows Start Menu, and to the Control Panel's Add / Remove Programs list. Using one of these links, un-installation should be a simple single click process.
