This topic describes system requirements to develop and use the Bing Maps Silverlight Control.
If you want to take advantage of the full functionality of the Bing Maps Silverlight Control, you must have the following components installed to develop a Bing Maps Silverlight Control application:
Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 SP1 or Microsoft Visual Studio 2010

|Regardless of your method of development, a Bing Maps Key is required for your Bing Maps Silverlight Control to function properly. Information about getting a key is found in the Getting a Bing Maps Key topic.|
The Bing Maps Silverlight Control is supported on the browsers supported by Silverlight, which is described in detail under the System Requirements tab on the Get Microsoft Silverlight page.
