C# app - in browser or stand-alone

Hi Experts,
Is there a way, using C#, to create an application that can run stand-alone or on the web (depending on how its started)?  The stand-alone app would have more rights (be able to access the hard drive, etc), but the web version would not...

Apologies if you consider this the same as a previous question of mine, but I'm really targeting c# here...

Thanks!
Mike

In WPF, you can create a Windows application (stand alone), and also a WPF Browser (web) application.
You need to create 2 projects, but you could create a WPF usercontrol, and use that in both projects to avoid the need to duplicate much of your UI.

Sounds good - is the WPF browser something like an applet?  Are there any gotchas I need to lookout for (such as the need for users of this to install some sort of ActiveX control to see the webpage properly?)

Thanks!

The users will need to have the .NET framework installed to be able to use a WPF browser application.

I have created WPF Windows applications, but not Browsers applications.  I just know it exists, and it has some limitations (no full trust, etc...) compared to Windows apps..
