Clearly it's telling you that there's a reference to Bing.Maps.dll, which isn't included in the application package. If you're writing this application, make sure you have referenced Bing.Maps correctly and that it's being added to the output package - Xenon 2012-04-04 07:43


Go to the properties of the project and under Build, you will see Platform Target. Choose either x64 or x86 instead of Any CPU and it should be solved.

To correctly reference Bing Maps for a Metro app...

Go to: Project -> Add Reference -> Windows -> Extensions

Now, select both the "Bing Maps for ..." and also "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Package"

If you don't select the 2nd package, things will seem to be fine until you try to actually deploy your app.
