Google Earth Changes

Postby twdotson » Wed May 27, 2015 3:16 pm

Google Earth is removing ActiveX connectivity we have used in the past for the MapWorks tools that Get Image, Set View, etc. Users have been discovering this when installing the new (now free) GE Pro version.

The error received is: System.Exception: Cannot create ActiveX component.

Unless Google provides a new API for accessing the functionality, these tools will no longer work in existing MapWorks releases and the current plan is to remove these tools from future releases.

However, please note that the creation of KML files and the importing of the same is still working. We will continue to support and improve the KML/KMZ functionality in the future.

We stopped using the Google Earth images and commands shortly after the Web Images were introduced. Removing these tools will not affect our use.

Return to “MapWorks”
