I have setup a real-time data source and map.  When it goes to run I get the following error in the event log:

Log Name:      SmartConnect
Source:        eOneSmartConnect
Date:          9/4/2013 2:23:08 PM
Event ID:      0
Task Category: None
Level:         Error
Keywords:      Classic
User:          N/A
SmartConnect : Error running realtime datasource
Invalid URI: The URI is empty.
Event Xml:
<Event xmlns=""&gt;
    <Provider Name="eOneSmartConnect" />
    <EventID Qualifiers="0">0</EventID>
    <TimeCreated SystemTime="2013-09-04T18:23:08.000000000Z" />
    <Security />
    <Data>SmartConnect : Error running realtime datasource
Invalid URI: The URI is empty.</Data>

Any clues whatt could be the problem?

Any real time map that is setup within SmartConnect uses our web service to run the actual map. SO you need to have the web service setup and running on an IIS box from our installer, and then need to have that URL for the web service entered in the setup window of SmartConnect before registering the map.

That will allow the trigger to send the data and the map to call to the web service when the event fires, right now it sounds like that isn't the case.

That is what it was.  I had put the information in but for some reason it didn't save it.  I put it in again and now it is working.   Thanks for your help.
