    I am looking for the PepperWhite mapping .VBX I purchased it sometime in the 1990s. I wrote a great map using it. I lost it in a house fire along with a friends Mother. I need this vbx so I can read the data from the CD and draw my maps. I am using visual basic 6.0, I know it is a 16 bit program but I am working on fixing all that.
    Someone please help me. I am now retired, 74 and want to redo my program. I have NO intentions of making a program to Sell. I may give it to the Fire Departments, or Emergency Management centers in the Parish I live in. It is a Gas Dispersion Model that I used at the Chlorine Plant I worked in as Safety Manager. My company gave me the rights to the program.

    We eventually purchased a system from Dupont Safer.

    It seems you may have found the Pepperwhite control. Because of our need for maps over the years, we have found a way to generate current Pepperwhite map files from public sources like OpenStreetMaps. It this would be of help, please contact me.
