This Gmap can be used in your .NET windows application (desktop application) very easily.
Follow this steps , this would help :-
*  Open a new windows application.
*  In the toolbox of the visual studio , right click and choose add tab from the context menu.
*  Now write a name for this tab.
*  Now right click on the new tab you have inserted and select choose items from the context mnenu, Anew dialog box will open. It will take some time to open , so please be patient.
*Now click on the browse button in this dialog box and locate to the GMap.NET.dll file which is present in the GMap.NET_v1-1-3-7 folder which you can download from your link.
* Now in your windows form drag and drop the form and you are ready to play with it.]

Isn't that simple ? So have fun with the map.

Ok I have also tried it today. It worked fine for me before. But now there is a problem as the google itself changed their satellite images to JPEG format from PNG format. Which is the main cause of this black screen on the form.
 You are having the map loaded successfully but the images from the satellite cannot be rendered by the application as the old files with .PNG extensions are replaced.
We have nothing to do but to wait for the next release with this problem fixed due to this google changes.
Check this thread.

P.S Please accept as solution if you find my solution useful in anyway..

For using GMap in windows application I've used this GMap.Net. But In case of web appliaction , There are many other ways and portable javascript available from google to include it in your web site.
If you want I can show you how to use those script on your ASP.NET with C# web pages.
Let me know if you are interested in web programming.
