Is the Silverlight Macro working?

Jul 6, 2010 at 1:36 PM
Hi, I tried to embed a Silverlight plugin that I placed on my DropBox account, and it doesn't show up. That is, the plugin is there, filling the area I specify - but its not loading the content (XAP). When I go to the Silverlight Toolkit project, the same thing is happening there. The area were the plugin should be is allocated but the Xap is not getting loaded. I've tested this on 3 different Macs in Safari and Chrome and on 2 Windows machines in Internet Explorer and Chrome. Thanks.

Most likely your xap isn't setup to work correctly cross domain.  There have been some detailed discussions around this issue here:

For example, I noticed your the xap file isn't returning the correct mime type (application/x-silverlight-app??).

Thanks,

Thanks,

I'll look into those.

 

But I am not able to see the content on http://silverlight.codeplex.com either, so that means they're having the same issue then?

Never mind the comment about Silverlight.codeplex.com - its XAP has a 404. :)

Thanks again for helping out.
