Bing Maps SDK release – Fixing "Bad Plugin Definition" error.


There is a problem with the Bing Maps map app test tool and the latest SDK we launched for Tech Ed. The URL in the documentation is http://www.bing.com/maps/explore/?developer=1 and that should work. However, some people are getting an exception. The fix is to add a &preview=1 to the URL while we work on a fix.

http://www.bing.com/maps/explore/?developer=1&preview=1

 

Here is the error you might see:

---------------------------
Plug-in load failed
