ArcGIS map services stopped loading in Flash application since April 1st, 2022.

We see 404 HTTP error with host - dev.virtualearth.net , URL - /crossdomain.xml.

'404 - File or directory not found
The resource you are looking for might have been removed , had its name changed , or is temporarily unavailable.'

Have anyone experienced this issue? Please advise of any possible solutions.

    Yes. This is related to the EOL of Silverlight ( https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/silverlight/dotnet-windows-silverlight/cc197955(v=vs.95) ). Please move your app to either the V8 Web control or UWP Maps control. The Silverlight Maps control was deprecated in 2016 as documented here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/maps/discontinued-control-migration-guidelines

    If you must rely on crossdomain, you can host your own server as a pass through and have that server call the API, but I believe this will only be a temporary fix and moving to a modern control is the right answer. We have a demo of how to use your own server to deploy your key https://greymatter.com/content-hub/protecting-and-hiding-your-bing-maps-key/ that can be extended to have the cross domain xml as well.
