I'm also using a sql server 2008 and have 2 simple tables as follows:

- DrawingID (PK, int, not null)
- DrawingName (varchar(50))

- PointID (PK, int, not null)
- DrawingID (FK, int, not null)
- Name (varchar(50))
- Point (geography, not null)

There is one row in each table,  the geography instance is in SRID 4326 (WGS
84).  The item displays properly but I can't select it no matter what.

I'm using the windows install of Mapguide 2.0.2:
MgServerSetup-  It did not have the SQL Server Spatial
provider bundled.  So I installed the fdosqlserverspatial-3.3.0_win32.tar.gz
which is SQL Server Spatial BETA 1.  I chose this because the dll version of
the bundled FDO.dll that the MgServerSetup installed was

Do you know if the BETA 1 version of the SQL Server Spatial provider doesn't
support selection on layers?

What version of MapGuide, FDO, SQL Server Spatial Provider releases work to
be able to select points on a SQL layer?  

Is it ok to install the latest version of FDO (which is 3.3.2) into the
C:\Program Files\MapGuideOpenSource2.0\Server\Bin\FDO directory,
overwritting the contents that the MgServerSetup placed?  

The release notes for MG 2.0.2 says: "MGOS 2.0.2 is compatible with FDO
3.3.1 but the version packaged with the installers is actually a newer
version."  But the version of FDO in the Bin directory appears to be

Thanks for any clues you can provide.
