Standalone version is to be used together with Novapoint 17.20FP2f or with plain AutoCAD installations. Novapoint 18.00FP1c update will include this same version when released.

At same time 6.0.1 version of ActiveX Viewer has been released. The ActiveX version is installed / updated automatically when users go to a web page containing Virtual Map vmz model.
