MapControl gives error message RRS feed

  • Question

  • After reading the many suggestions here to use the UWP MapControl, I upgraded VS to include UWP and tried to run the sample UWP app.  It gave this error message:

    DEP6957: Failed to connect to device '' using Universal Authentication. Please verify the correct remote authentication mode is specified in the project debug settings. COMException - No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007274D) [0x8007274D]		

    What to do?

    Edit to Add: Maybe this is in the wrong forum.  If so, please move it to a better place.

  • What platform are you targeting for your UWP app? The error sounds like you're trying to connect to some emulator.

  • Hi Roger,

    A quick search for the error gives a few helpful posts like this one in GITHUB https://github.com/Microsoft/Xaml-Controls-Gallery/issues/80

    Have you checked that you are targeting the correct processor for your deployment?

  • To be honest, Duncan, after looking at what would be involved in switching to UWP I decided to stick with wpf for  my current project.  I'm pretty far along and my mapping needs are quite basic so even using a wpf island is not worth the effort.

  • Thanks, Iot, but see my reply to Duncan.

  • Hi Roger,

    As noted in the docs, Bing Maps WPF is no longer maintained or supported.  With that in mind, a transition now might be less painful than a transition later.
