My application is desktop and wpf and uses Microsoft.Maps.MapControl.WPF. The application worked fine using .NET framework 4.8 but I have now upgraded it to .NET 6. Now adding children to a map layer now no longer actually draws the added child. Has something changed regarding Bing maps and .NET 6 that renders Bing map inoperable?

    The Bing maps WPF control was written for .NET client profile 4.0 and doesn't work well with newer frameworks. It's recommended to use the UWP map control and XAML islands for newer applications.
