Eduardo,

Thanks! Let me know if you need any help getting started on things.

The “Official SDK” for Silverlight is installed with Silverlight tools or separate here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=8D933343-038F-499C-986C-C3C7E87A60B3&displaylang=en. It is not installed on client machines, so anything that is part of the SDK must be included in each application’s XAP file to be used. The DLR is not part of the Silverlight installer since the DLR, Ruby, and Python

However, there are way to get around this. First, assemblies can be served on the web-server (outside the XAP) and the AppManifest.xaml file will download them when the application starts, and cache them in the browser cache, which will be shared among other apps that reference the assemblies from the same URL. For DLR-based apps, Chiron can package XAP files on disk or in memory which reference DLR DLLs outside the XAP file. Take a look at Chiron.exe.config, and this blog post (near the bottom): http://blog.jimmy.schementi.com/2008/05/story-of-ruby-and-python-in-silverlight.html
