  • That is an old link to an official map control that no longer exists. This was only meant to be used by the Bing Maps consumer site. If you want to develop for Bing Maps use the official Bing Maps control. If you already have code using v6.2 then a quick fix is to use the Bing Maps V6.3 map control as it is backwards compatible. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee692181.aspx The map control reference is http://ecn.dev.virtualearth.net/mapcontrol/mapcontrol.ashx?
    v=6.3

    That said I highly recommend you upgrade to the Bing Maps v7 AJAX control as the v6.3 control hasn't been updated in over 3 years and will likely never see another update. All new development and features are going into the V7 control. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg427610.aspx

  • I suspect you have an old link to the maps. Try http://bing.com/maps
