Hi,

We used VS2010 to create a silverlight app, and an aspx and html page were being auto generated. The html works fine, but, for unknown reason, the aspx will not run. When we check under IE, it shows
Webpage error details

User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/4.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0; Tablet PC 2.0; FDM; InfoPath.3; .NET4.0C; .NET4.0E)
Timestamp: Thu, 16 Sep 2010 03:05:09 UTC


Message: Unhandled Error in Silverlight Application
Code: 2104    
Category: InitializeError      
Message: Could not download the Silverlight application. Check web server settings    

Line: 57
Char: 13
Code: 0
URI:

Can anyone tell us where is the problem please? Thanks.

We are hosted the page @ Windows Server 2008 R2 with IIS 7

Please ignore my previous comment.

I have got your solution. This error comes as you are using Windows Server. For that you need to add MIME types for silverlight which are .xap/.xaml/ .xbap

Hope this helps!

Thanks

Hi,

Thanks for all the reply. As mentioned, we are using Windows server 2008, IIS7 which silverlight are "reset". But, as extra steps, I still check to make sure all the mime type are there.

And another question would be, if silverlight is not supported, then, most prolly the .html will not run as well? But, seems like the same file with .html were able to host the silverlight application without any issue.

Maybe I overlook some of the suggestion? Please advise.

>>> we are using Windows server 2008, IIS7 which silverlight are "reset"?

What do you mean by this?

Plus, if SL is not supported then i guess that .html will run as it has nothing to do with html.

Hope i have resolve your queries.

Thanks!

Hi,

Just an extra info over here.
1. If the server does not support SL, then, regardless of HTML or ASPX, both will not run.

For my issue, it due to a silly issue
<param name="source" value="ClientBin/myApp.xap"/> <- When the system auto generated, the value was "Bin/myApp.xap", where system can't find the .xap.

I guess experts (including me) have invested their time in resolving the issue, hence i think the most deserving expert should be awarded the points.

Rest is upto EE Admin, Moderators & to author.

Thanks!
