Does VE Maps work on MOSS SP1?

Jan 22, 2008 at 8:06 PM
Did anyone manage to have Virtual Earth work on MOSS SP1? The installation/re-installation works like a charm, but as soon as I add the Campus Maps web part on a page, a browser windows keep saying "Error! There was an error in the callback.80|/wEWBgLC5pMRA...." I see the map, but this message keeps being prompted every few sec...

I am getting the same error on a non SP1 installation. I had it working on my dev box. Any clues yet? Thx, Gerard

No I haven't found why it doesn't work yet. I'm starting to wonder if it's because I have Ajax .Net 3.5 installed.

Anybody got a solution to this? Same problem here, MOSS SP1. If I ignore the error and go ahead to install the second Web Part: Campus Landmarks, the page enters the Web Part Maintenance mode. What should we configure on the first Web Part, actually? The Implementer's Guide mentions this but what values should we put on the “Push Pin Data Source Class” and the “Push Pin Data Source Assembly” options?

hey - i was havign the same issues but i had misconfigured the connection string(s) in the configuration list.

Can you please be more explicit? What exactly did you configured and what are the correct configurations?
Thank you

Same problem - is there a configuration problem?, or is it something else? Any solutions? Thank you.

HI, same implementation issue and callback errors
have you been able to find the correct “Push Pin Data Source Class” and the “Push Pin Data Source Assembly” options to make the VE Maps work ?
thanks in advance

The default setting for the CampusMap Push Pin Data Source Assembly is incorrect.

Add the Campus Map web part
Add the Map Administration web part
Copy the Push Pin Data Source Assembly from the Map Admin web part
Paste it into the setting for the CampusMap web part.

Once those settings are applied the Campus Landmarks and Search should add correctly (And not display the Web Part Error page when loading the site)

HI and thanks for the reply
In my configuration (I am using the packaged version) the values are already the same, namely:

Microsoft.InformationServices.CampusMaps, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=70f326e731472906

I'd be thankful if you had any other possible explanations for this
thanks

Hi,

I had to add the following to the local intranet zone in Internet Explorer to get this to work (MOSS2007 SP1):

http://server.domain.com (the dns name of the site)
http://live.maps.com
http://dev.virtualearth.net

hope it helps,

Brian

I got this working but I can't seem to get the Push Pins to display data.  I figure that you would modify the PushPinentities description and userdescription field.  But I can't see to get any data to display.  Anyone know why?
