Why am I being asked to install Silverlight? RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I need to start developing a Silverlight application. I build something extremely simply just to make sure it actually works in CRM.

    Sure enough it fails.

    I decide to import the managed demo solutions that come with the SDK. Surely they will work. Right? Wrong. Failed again.


    So every time I try to preview the HTML container I get a big blue button that says "Install Silverlight". Well, clicking on it runs an installer that tells me it can't install because I already have it installed on my machine.

    Okay. So at least now I am super-sure I have the software I need.

    I try to preview the XAP file directly. I get a different blue button that also says "Install Silverlight".

    Guess what happens when I try to place either of these Web Resources in a form. Yup. FAILED.

    So... anybody out there know why?

  • Using IE in 64-bit mode. Gotcha. Yeah.
