necessary rights

Jan 13, 2010 at 6:32 AM

Hello
I included the successfully in our application. Some users cannot use it, it hangs. What necessary rights must a user have? Is it "only" to use ActiveX-Controls or is more needed?

thanks Andreas

hi there, i never came across any security errors. I can imagine you need rights to run ActiveX controls and run javascript. the usercontrol itself connects to the following url: http://dev.virtualearth.net/mapcontrol/mapcontrol.ashx?v=6.2 so check whether they can access that url. If that does not work, can you tell me when it hangs? does the user see any map at all.

hi there, thanks a lot,
I had the same idea about ActiveX after I tested with the mentionned URL. I will try it out with rights to run ActiveX and will tell you the result.
So far the user sees nothing after starting the map (and internally starting VirtualEarth.html) the machine starts making a clicking noise like when trying to access the harddisk without success.

Thanks Andreas
