I have a quick question.
If we have Desktop 10.1 and wish to use offline maps. We do not wish to have the server, are we still able to use the WPF runtime SDK to display the maps on our application?
Is the server really necessary?
I read the documentation but it is still not very clear if we can do away with the server.
