I need a sample map package that works with ArcGIS runtime 10.4.

I'm trying to develop a WPF/XAML application using the ArcGIS runtime SDK for .NET, but I've not been able to get very far because I don't have a map package to load into it.

At this point, I don't much care what map in particular, I simply need a map.

Our customer has sent us a .mxd with associated .gsd files, but when I try to create a map package out of it I get numerous errors: "00174 Label expression uses VBScript, this is not support in the ArcGIS Runtime", etc.

I'd thought I'd be able to create a map in ArcGIS online to create a map package that would work with ArcGIS runtime, but when I open the map in ArcGIS desktop and try to create a map package, I get a different error: "00142 Layer's data source cannot be referenced in the ArcGIS Runtime".

Can anyone point me to a map package that will work with ArcGIS runtime 10.4? All I need is some street data, it doesn't really matter where.

Map Packages don't work with Runtime SDK's. The Runtime SDK's at quartz support Mobile Map Packages created with ArcGIS Pro. You can import your *.mxd file into ArcGIS Pro and create a mobile map package, but you will need to use ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET Quartz.
