1. Right click on your host project in the solution explorer of visual
2. Click Publish to the web server
3. Go through the wizard and finish.

Visual would publish the necessary files to the selected path.

I meant the mvc\website\application project when i said "host project". in post # 33600154.

just hover over the question mark agains the "Service URL" field and give the appropriate service url either as localhost or the remote server address

do the same thing for site\application. You could leave the rest of the fields with default values and publish.

This is what I do when I want to publish on my localhost.  Hope it helps.

1. Create a folder on your system
2. Open IIS
3. right click default web site and click "Add virtual directory"
4. Browse to the folder you just created
5. Give the virtual directory an Alias (anything as long as it doesn't exist)
6. Right click the new virtual directory click "Convert to application"
7. In Visual Studio
8. Open the publish options on the Asp.NET app just like your screen shot
9. Select "File System"
10. Browse to the path of that same new folder you created
11. Publish..

Now you should be able to browse to it in your browser.  The path will look something like this: http://localhost/NewFolderName/WebProjectFolderName/SilverlightHostPageName.aspx

The "NewFolderName"  should actually be the alias that you gave the virtual directory..

N Sri, we do not know your web server name and where you are trying to deploy i mean local or remote host. So we really cannot  fill in the exact values for those fields. But here is example.

Service URL : localhost

Site/Application : Default Web site/MySilverlightApp
