  • Question

  • I have followed a video tutorial on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ijPdqbcMb4 this shows how to connect to a SQl server database to retrieve data.

    Running the application afterwards all works fine, I have then added the html file and xap file to a solution within CRM to test it, however it displays nothing.

    Debugging the page I am getting an error message: 

    Could not download the Silverlight application. Check web server settings

    Any ideas on how to upload the xap file and html file to the server and get it running.

    regards,

    Matt

  • Hello,

    Querying CRM tables directly not considered as supported in CRM, but you could use endpoints available in your silverlight webresource to create/retrieve data in CRM, you can also use Silversoap CRM I have used this in my projects very easy to use.

    Also to run silverlight web resurce you need to install silverlight addon in your browser.

    Here are some other samples: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/crminthefield/archive/2012/01/19/building-multi-purpose-silverlight-web-resources-in-dynamics-crm-2011.aspx

  • I am not querying CRM directly, I am querying a SQL database to display / get some information.
