Microsoft Bing Maps 3D Click-Once deployment

Jul 7, 2010 at 9:14 PM

Is there a VS2010 Prerequisite Redistributable Component available for installing Bing Maps 3D assemblies?

I have a WPF application using InfoStrat.VE which uses Click-Once deployment.  Right now, I must ask my users to first install Microsoft Bing Maps 3D before installing my WPF application, but I would like to make this part of my installer.

I tried marking all the “Microsoft.MapPoint” GAC assemblies as 'Copy Local' to get them installed into the \bin folder, but InfoStrat.VE still seems to want a 'proper' Microsoft Bing Maps 3D install.

Any suggestions?

Unfortunately the MapPoint assemblies do need to be in the GAC, and the only way to officially get them there is through the official Bing Maps 3D distribution.

Thanks, I was afraid of that.  I think I'll post a request/suggestion on the VS2010 Prerequisite Redistributable Component download site. (  Can't hurt to ask.  Thanks again.
