Despite the fact that MapObjects was discontinued about 3 years ago, my company has still been using it. We are a government agency and what isn't broken doesn't get fixed or changed. However, we are now beginning to encounter some problems with it.
We use MapObjects to create custom maps for our emergency services. The ability to create custom mapping applications has been very beneficial to us and provided some simply luxuries that other applications do not provide. For example, the ability to create over-sized buttons on a touch screen to accommodate use of firefighters in full rescue gear, which includes bulky gloves which inhibits dexterity.
Some of these emergency hardware systems are beginning to reach an age where replacement is necessary. Currently, these systems are utilizing Windows XP; however, the replacement units run Windows 7, which is where our problems with MapObjects appears to be beginning.
My specific question is: Will MapObjects work with Windows 7?
