Bing Maps WinRT BETA Crashing Blend? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    I'm creating a C#/XAML WinRT app, and it seems that once I've added in the Bing Maps library & C++ library and set everything up, I can no longer open up the project in Blend. It causes the designer surface to crash, and eventually the whole program. Same for opening up the samples.

    Is this a known problem / are there any workarounds?

    Thanks,

    John.

  • This appears to be a bug in Blend that slipped past testing. There is unfortunately not a workaround available short of not using the map via xaml and constructing it in code instead.

  • Thanks for the update >.< Unfortunately I can't get that far either - just having the libraries referenced in the project is enough to bring Blend down, even if I haven't used the library anywhere in my code or XAML yet. I guess I'll leave it out for now and come back to it sometime before Win8 ships.
