The delay of the release may bring many early adopters into serious trouble. They have invested a lot of time (and money) in developing apps and now they are not able to submit them to the store! So please hurry and provide reliable information about the release date!
Well I was getting the same Red Stop sign issue some people have reported. This happens if your Computer's Location is set to unsupported country. Dunno what the white list is, but India is not supported.
Go to Control-Panel->Clock,Language and Region->Change Location. Set Home Location to United States and test. Thing should work. What a mess!!!
BTW myMap.HomeRegion="US" suggested by Tore85 didn't work. Maybe I am doing it wrong so if he can supply a working sample it will help!
You guys seem to be kicking out updates every few weeks. Which I am guessing is good. It would be really nice to know what's changed / fixed / improved. This way if we have some sort of fix or limitation we can re-evaluate that hack or omission with each release. Also it would be almost essential to notify us of any API changes, additions or deprecations. Thank you.
No idea what's going on but I get an error "Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component." on geolocator GetGeopositionAsync.
Try everything nothing work, any idea?
so far restarted, reinstall Bing Maps SDK (latest version). No luck so far, really need help
I have problems binding a double value to the latitude and longitude values of the location in my xaml.
Binding the same values to the latitude and longitude of a pushpin works though.
As a result my map's location is somehere next to Africa (must be 0,0). The pushpin gets displayed on its correct position.
The display and performance of bing map is not good
And after i downloaded 1.1.20120927.1 version (Last updated 10/30/2012)
It still doesn't work well
And even more, test failed of bing map in arm windows surface rt platform
Is the 10/30/2012 version is as same as 1.0 version?
I've got the Bing Maps SDK working nicely - and packaged using Visual Studio - and took onto another Windows8 PC. BUT - the Bing Maps extension wasn't included (I don't think)...
And the app crashes as soon as it starts - do I need to register the DLL's for Bing.Maps.Xaml ?? HOW ??
Do you need to install VS2012 and this extension on each app that uses the Maps? Our app works on our dev machines, but the tablet always crashes when trying to load the maps (which doesn't have VS2012 installed)
I have an app that uses Bing maps as a crucial part. And I cannot submit it to the store due to the delay. I need to meet a deadline.
So please tell us when the final release will be available.
Otherwise we have to find an alternative solution (without maps).
