I am using ArcServer 10 and the ArcGIS Viewer for Flex 2.1.

What should I use as the REST endpoint URL for Bing Map data?

I'm still new to this, Bruce, but it sounds like you seeing the bing roads layer (the one referenced with the tag <layer label="Bing" type="bing" visible="false" style="road" culture="en-US" /> )

Make sure that the visibily is set to false, and the visibility for one of the other two - aerials or hybrid - is set to "true".

(note that I didn't actually add all three tags to my config file, just the hybrid)

Is it still possible to project bing maps using flex api lib v 1. I understand in olderversion of flex it needs a handler page with userID and pwd. Does it allow the projection of bing maps to other than wgs84.

HI Robert,

I am using flexviewer 3 with flex api 1.3.

The tage is 

<esri:VETiledLayer id="veLayer"     tokenURL="" />.

I want to understand what will this tokenURL contain?

If its a handler page then it will need user ID and password.

But at the same time i registered at ""  it gave me a key to use. I can use this key in Flex 4 and not in Flex 3. Could you please suggest how to use the key for flexviewer3.
