In fact, if you want the old version of Concierge to run while you are using Infostrat.VE, you can manually add the assembly to the GAC (using gacutil.exe).
To make it clear:
- install VE3D (Bing maps 3D now) on a sandbox/dev machine (http://bing.com/maps/ click 3D.. and install)
- extract the assembly from the GAC (they all are prefixed by Microsoft.MapPoint...) to do this you can simply try to mount this \\127.0.0.1\c$\windows\assembly as a network drive)
- once you have every assemblies copied in your own folder, package the whole thing and then go on surface unit
- launch a batch with each line adding your assemblies to the GAC ( http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ex0ss12c(VS.80).aspx)
It should be like this for each assembly: gacutil.exe /i MyAssemblyPath
In this way you will have all required assemblies on Surface Unit and older version of Concierge will work.
Make sure your user won't launch the VE3D via the link on the desktop, it will break older version of Concierge anyway.
If it is not clear, I will write a blog entry about it.
