Using Maps fails on windows server

I have a site with three maps on the contact page. Perch is updated to Perch: 2.8.31.

Page works fine on a linux staging server. However when moved to the clients live server (windows) the maps fail.

The maps view initially and then disappear with an error "this page didn't load google maps". Console says...

Google Maps API warning: InvalidKey

And ideas on a fix?

Have you added your API key to the config file?

Ah! Do I need to do this? I don't recall ever doing this on any other Perch site. As in, the same code works on the linux staging server. wait the staging server does not. But other Perch maps on other site do with no API key for want I can see.

I fixed the issue on the staging linux server by re-saving the map locations in the editor control panel.

Hopefully thought re-saving same would fix the windows server too. The unlike the linux server the widows server maps there do not display at all in the editor control panel with the first error...,-1.5868643606017918&size=400x300&zoom=15&maptype=roadmap&markers=color:red|color:red|53.79250774504415,-1.586751937866211
[Error] Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 403 (Forbidden) (staticmap, line 0)

and then

[Error] Google Maps API error: MissingKeyMapError
    Za (js:31:426)
    (anonymous function) (common.js:51:476)
    (anonymous function) (common.js:191:173)
    c (common.js:45:407)
    global code (AuthenticationService.Authenticate:1)

Now is that an issue with the server not allowing the map to load first and then the API key fails?

Why would the linux server working and windows server not.
