I got the control up and running in my app pretty easily. Great stuff. I did this work on my development laptop. Now, I'm trying to test it out on my slate (the one from BUILD) so I did what I normally do: configure for remote debugging
and hit F5. When the app runs on the slate, I get a XamlParseException saying
"Cannot create instance of type 'Bing.Maps.Map'".
I'm sure the XAML is right because this code works fine on my dev box. The slate
does not have the Bing Maps SDK installed on it but I do see that Visual Studio copied Bing.Maps.winmd to my output bin directory and
presumably put in the package it deployed to the slate (not sure how to check that though). Both of these machines are x64 and that's what my project is set for.
No, that's not the problem. I updated all my machines to the Consumer Preview as soon as it came out. I have *not* installed Visual Studio or the Bing Maps SDK on my slate but I am assuming this is not necessary because people who get my app from the app
store won't have these things installed either.
