This may not work, but it's worth a shot.  It may be an issue with trusting the source.  To allow trust to remote sources close VS 2010.  Then open the %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe.config file in any text editor and add the loadFromRemoteSources element as follows:


If this webfolder is the same folder your Silverlight application is in you should not be including the http://.  Rather you should be referencing the files with a relative uri, in your case this looks like it would be just Directory.GetFiles("/images/");
