If I understand, there is a sandbox set up by Silverlight on the client PC. And there is a space limit? What is the user wants to add files to be used by this Out of Browser Silverlight app?  Can it then exceed the limits of the sandbox?

Please explain how this sandbox works and what the limits are.

Thanks,

At work I can not open the first link. So what I heard for an earlier version of Silverlight is not true anymore? There was a 30MB sandbox on the client PC and the Silverlight out of browser application was intentioanally (for security reasons) limited in its capabilitites.

So that's no longer true anymore?

Great!

Honestly, I don't know that there ever was a "hard" limit.

I'm happy to hear this. But I researched this in early 2009 and distinctly remember hearing about a Sandbox, for security reasons, that protected the user from rogue Internet applications.

Aside from storage space, which is clearly cionfiigurable, are there any other constraints you can think of?

Oh there definitely is protected space (sandbox) that applications run in, I was just saying I hadn't ever seen anywhere that said there was a "hard" upper limit for the sandbox size.

As for other limits or constraints there aren't many I can think of because any decent framework would/should be scalable and not impose any upper limits beyond what a computer can handle.
