Streets and Trips is a Microsoft program developed to perform a variety of map-related tasks, such as street mappings, route planning and GPS locations. The program operates in North America. The geographical area that it covers is the United States, Canada and Mexico. Streets and Trips is a subset of the Microsoft MapPoint program. However, the European version of the program is AutoRoute. This program covers Europe, including European Russia, as well Southern Asian. The newest version covers over 37 countries including countries like Armenia, Cyprus, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Go to "Start" then "Computer" and map a network drive to the location where you want the install to occur in. Go to the menu and select "Map Network," then type the commands to map a network drive; for example, "\DriveE\AutoRoute." Next, create a network share. To do that, click "Start," then select "Computer" and go to the AutoRoute folder in the E Drive; right-click and select "Share." This will make the program available for a network install. Now download the Microsoft AutoRoute program into that folder location (see Resources).

  2. 2

    Go to "Start," and type "cmd" to open the command window. When the Microsoft Window opens, type the command, "E:\setup.exe /a." The "/a" parameter will let you create an administrative set-up. This is what you need for a network set-up.

  3. 3

    Now go to "Start" and select "Computer," then go to the folder that has the AutoRoute program. Begin the installation, and accept the defaults.
