The map is shown, but I immediately get an error I cannot explain (I don't see a file home3.html and cannot find line 774 anywhere). Maps will be called with address information (city + address) instead of geographic coordinates.

I agree. Craig Boyd wrote about how to use Virtual Earth inside VFP in his blog, http://www.sweetpotatosoftware.com/spsblog/2008/11/27/VirtualEarthClassLibraryForVisualFoxPro.aspx

There's a fine line between helping and adding to the confusion.
