could not able to load map RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello sir

    I have Visual Studio 2013 professional and windows 8.1.

    I have also installed bing maps API on the VS.

    From the MSDN site i downloaded some samples (Traffic) for Bing maps for windows store.

    I opened it in the VS and inserted the Basic key of my account to the Credentials in MainPage.xaml

    still i am not able to see the map..

  • Does the project say Windows 8.1. beside the project name in Visual Studios? If not it's possible you are using the Windows 8.0 SDK/maps.

    The maps are blocked in some regions due to geopolitical issues but I thought this was only in the Windows 8.0 SDK. This is documented here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj670541.aspx

    To get around this try setting the maps Culture property to en-US and the HomeRegion property to US.
