  • I started getting the above message in my Bing Axaj control being used in a WinPhone 8.1 JavaScript app since Saturday and it is still not working!

    What's going on?

  • Are you still seeing this issue? The dev team has cleared the cache on the servers that had a bad configuration file on them which was causing this issue. If you are still seeing this issue, try clearing your browser cache.

  • Just to verify, what URL are you using in you application to point to the Bing Maps API?

  • Right, so in your code you have a script reference pointing to this URL:

    http://ecn.dev.virtualearth.net/mapcontrol/mapcontrol.ashx?v=7.0

    If so, then it should be working as this URL has been 100% available. I've been monitoring it for the last week trying to reproduce the server error people have been reporting and haven't seen any issues.

    I have however seen this issue in apps that are pointing directly to the files that get loaded in the background by this API, like the veapicore.js file. You shouldn't have any references to that file in your code.

  • Ricky - Does your comment about not having references to veapicore.js apply to Javascript Windows 8.1 apps as well? I'm having a similar issue (described here) and have used the Bing Map SDK for Javascript referencing veapicore.js like this: 

    <script src="ms-appx:///Bing.Maps.JavaScript//js/veapicore.js"></script>

    This is how the documentation says to reference the script in a Windows 8.1 application. Is that correct?

    There's quite a few folks having issues lately with this script throwing exceptions. If you have any insights on that issue it would be great. No one from Microsoft has weighed in even though it appears to be an issue with the Microsoft service as older versions are still working: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/284dc8d6-8053-42f5-80b6-52f579928b66/bing-maps-veapicorejs-throws-unhandled-exception?forum=bingmapswindows8. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

  • I do have the reference to the veapicore.js file Josh is mentioning... how would it work otherwise?

    Please, it was working until Friday

    EDIT: Changing the url in the veapicore.js to send version 7.0.1 instead of 7.0.2 get the job done. But as I said, I do have an app in production where I can't change this until a new version hits the store. Please guys, fix it.
