there's been some questions to me and in my local community about my vague references to my geocoder provider (sorry andrew).  the demonstration/explanation of that provider is here in my "geocode provider" post (not sure why i didn't make that part of the code gallery originally, apologies -- it now is).  i hope that helps.

i've also just uploaded an example of how you can use virtual earth for geocoding...i've wrapped it in a windows forms app to show that you can leverage virtual earth in a windows forms application as well.  i hope that helps.

basically what happens is the form calls a script:

   1:  private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
   2:  {
   3:      AddPushpin.Visible = false;
   4:      executeScript(ClearAllPushpins);
   5:      executeScript(FindLocation, LocationToFind.Text);
   6:  }

on the html page implementing the map rendering, i have a callback function that calls back into my winforms, providing the latlong:

   1:  function OnFoundLocation(e)
   2:  {
   3:      if (e.length > 0)
   4:      {
   5:          var latLon = e[0].LatLong;
   6:          window.external.LocationFound(latLon.Latitude, latLon.Longitude);
   7:      }
   8:  }
