BingMaps not showing when PC region set to Singapore. RRS feed

  • BingMaps not showing when PC region set to Singapore!!

    I tried setting the BinMap control in my app using

    MyMap.HomeRegion = "US" as well as inside the XAML itself.

    I removed old BingMaps SDK, restarted VS2012, restarted PC, etc, etc.

    Still, the BingMaps are not showing.

    Once I set my PC Home Region to US, boom and all maps are showing again.

    HELP!!

  • Singapore is not a supported region as per http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj670541.aspx. If you've run in an unsupported region you need to start the app twice: once to make it download the new configuration file for the supported region, the second time to enable the map with the new configuration file.

  • Hi Kristoffer

    I am not sure what you mean by download the new configuration file ....

    Where is this CONFIGURATION file that you are talking about and any information on how this file is created?

    Thanks!

  • It's an implementation detail of how we handle different regions. Start the app twice, allowing the first instance at least 30 seconds before terminating it and HomeRegion="US" should work.

  • Here the question: I develop a app using Bing Map resource, and i'm really from Singapore. So is there any TOU i need to take note of?
