AzamSharp Some day I will know everything. I hope that day never comes.

I created a simple XAML file and was trying to host it in an ASPX page when I was greeted with the following screen.

silverlightbusted

 

That's interesting because I am pretty sure I had the Silverlight Runtime installed. Anyway, I clicked on the link and downloaded Silverlight. Once, the installation was finished I simply tried to refresh the page but that did not worked out. So, I closed all the browsers and open IE again but same message again that Silverlight is not installed. Finally, I restarted the machine but still the same message. This is not the first time this has happened! I have experienced the same behavior in the past when I had the Silverlight installed on the machine but for reason the browser is not able to detect it.

This is an ISSUE and MUST BE RESOLVED!

You likely have an old JavaScript file hosting pointing to an older version of Silverlight.

It says to install a Silverlight beta - but there is no current Silverlight beta out there. There is the 1.0 released version and the 1.1 Alpha (there will also soon be a 2.0 beta).

I'd recommend checking your JavaScript files and replacing them with new versions.

Thanks,

Scott

Which vesion are you using and is this a new problem or is it there from long. I am interested in knowing as I was thinking into plunging into the silverlight stuff....

Looks like you might have an old version number in your code.
In your JavaScript code where you are calling Silverlight.createObject function, ensure the Silverlight version number is 1.0. This should hopefully solve the issue you are facing.

Of course, the other alternative is that you are using the not-released-to-the-public Silverlight 2.0 Beta. A friend of mine was supposed to get the Beta bits this week. Is this the case here?

Hope this helps.

Yes, but which version of Silverlight did you install? It sounds like you installed Silverlight 1.0 but whatever site it is you're trying to access it requires Silverlight 1.1 (as indicated by the "beta" stripe on your screenshot).

I'd agree that things can get messy with 1.0 AND 1.1 installation (especially if you manage to uninstall things in the wrong order and then try reinstalling) but I guess the official response here is that 1.1 is in beta and not RTM.

Hi,

I am not using any JavaScript file. I have VS 2008 Team Suite Edition. I added a simple Silverlight file (XAML file) to my project. And tried to import that file on the .ASPX page using the XAML control. Here is the code for the XAML file.

<Canvas xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/client/2007"
xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml">


</Canvas>


Here is the code for the web page.

<asp:ScriptManager ID="sm1" runat="server" EnablePartialRendering="true">
</asp:ScriptManager>
<cc1:Xaml ID="Xaml1" runat="server">
</cc1:Xaml>

I have even tried to uninstall the Silverlight and then reinstalled it but the problem did not go away.

I have also seen this problem in different machines when I install Silverlight and the system is not able to detect if the Silverlight runtime is installed or not.

Can it be IIS problem? Try loading the .xap file from your browser. If you see errors like 'forbidden' then you might want to have look at you IIS configuration and add the .xap MIME type to you MIME-types.
