Chiron Hosting an Old Version of Silverlight

Jun 14, 2009 at 1:00 PM

I start the server with script\server /b which brings up IE with a directory structure.

After moving into samples\python\clock\index.html it says I need to install silverlight.  However I already have silverlight installed and Microsoft agrees and says the server is using an old version of silverlight.

Works for me, both with Silverlight 2 and 3 already installed, and without Silverlight installed (the image-link saying you need to install Silverlight directs to the appropriate SL2 version), AND in IE8 and FF3 on Windows.

Can you provide more information? What version do you have installed? Silverlight 2 should be 2.0.40115, which the microsoft.com/silverlight website says is "Silverlight 2 GDR 1". What browser/OS are you using? Do other Silverlight apps work for you?

And to correct your terminology, Chiron is simply a web-server which can auto-xap a DLR Silverlight application for easy development (as well as create the xap file on disk for deployment). It doesn't host Silverlight at all; just takes the DLR binaries and creates the XAP. Each sample is responcible for hosting Silverlight in their index.html pages with an <object> tag.

Thanks for the quick response and correction.

I am using IE 8.0.7100

It says I have Silverlight 2 version Silverlight 2GDR 1(2.0.40115.0)

This site works as well.

However when I download the source and have chiron make the xap file it just produces a blank page.

If I try and make the xap file myself I get the same thing.  My understanding is the xap file is just a zip of the app folder with the extention changed to xap.

A XAP is a zip file of the app folder with the extension changed, but it also contains the DLR/Ruby/Python assemblies. I'll see if I can reproduce what you're seeing and get back to you.

I have the visifire xap file working from the HD.
Maybe if you could post your xap file I could try that.
 
I appeciate anything you can do.

I don't know how I did it but I think I originally download a bad version of agdlr-0.5.0.

My version only have three samples within python directory.

Anyways the latest version works for me.

Thanks Anyways,

Sure, sdlsdk-0.1.0 will be confused because it's expecting the public version of Silverlight to be 2.0 Beta 1, not 2.0 RTW. Please use 0.5.0, or use the builds from IronRuby or IronPython.
