This error means the mime type of the Silverlight application is not supported on your webserver. If you're certain you're using the asp.net webserver (is your url localhost:PORTNUMBER or localhost/VIRTUALDIRECTORY?) then your installation is not correct.you need to reinstall VWD, service pack and silverlight tools.

the source was indeed incorrect. but when changing to ~/ClientBin/Debug/my.xap"
the error AG_E_Unknown_Error at InitializeComponent() comes back...


I starting to find that complicated for nothing...

it's probably because something is being copied over by the second project. Try changing the output paths of the projects to subfolders in clientbin and changing the source path in the web page to reflect this.
