I have a Silverlight application & Website created using visual studio 2010.

I want to open outlook when I click the hyperlinkbutton in my application.  

When I click allow button its opening a new browser window (IE 10 ) and then Opens Outlook.
<HyperlinkButton HorizontalAlignment="Left"  NavigateUri="mailto:abc@xyz.com" >

but in that new browser window it gives error message -  
Navigation to the webpage was canceled  

I  also checked with TargetName= "_self" , _blank; but still i am getting the same error
 
I tried using the answer suggestedin http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/Microsoft_Programming/WPF_and_Silverlight/Q_27023697.html 

It does work for me, but I cannot go to each user's machine and open msconfig.exe and make changes as mentioned in that site ....

My only aim is to open outlook/default email from my silverlight page , put send email to:
abc@xyz.com and put something in subject of that email...

What should I do... please help... thanks a lot

Hi, at999.

I'll start by saying that I know nothing about Silverlight.  That said, a mailto link should create a new email using the default email client on the computer the ink is invoked on.  For example, open IE and enter "mailto:abc@xyz.com?subject=Testing" (without the quotes) in the address line.  If Outlook is your default email client, then the result should be a new Outlook email addressed to abc@xyz.com with a subject of "testing".  If the UAC asks you if you want to allow the web page to perform the action, then uncheck the box that tells IE to perform the check every time.
