Integrating Silverlight 3 in SharePoint 2007


Silverlight 3 has been released last week and it comes with really really great features. To learn more about them, I refer to posts like those of Tim HeuerScott Guthrie and Shawn Wildermuth. And a blog I personally like very much is the blog of Mike Snow.  Besides those listed here, there are a lot of other interesting resources you can find on the net.

All these new features sounds very exciting. Today I have been trying to integrate Silverlight 3 into SharePoint and it has not been easy at all.

Installation of Silverlight 3

 – Download Silverlight 3 runtime and install

– Download the Silverlight 3 SDK and install 

– If you are a developer, download Silverlight 3 Tools for Visual Studio and install. If you run  your environment in a Virtual PC (like most of the SharePoint developers do) you will encounter problems when you have no internet connection from within your Virtual PC. Until the beta version of Silverlight 3 you could use the trick to copy the content of the temporary folder while the exe was aching to install, and then install everything separately, but this time you will not find the Silverlight.3.x_Developer.exe file to enable Silverlight debugging in Visual Studio so you DO need an internet connection this time. (To enable internet access from within your VPC, I can recommend this post).

– If you need to develop more advanced user interfaces (and you will), you can download and install the Blend 3 trial.

If you installed all these bits, you are ready to go. Open Visual Studio 2008 and you can start developing your first Silverlight 3 applications. Exciting isn’t it? But if you are a SharePoint developer like me, there is the next hurdle to take: how can I display my first Silverlight 3 application in SharePoint? The SharePoint path has always been steep and has never been easy to take.

Configuration of the SharePoint server

Here comes the good news: in despite of previous versions, with Silverlight 3 you have to change NOTHING to the web.config of your SharePoint web application(s) on the server. You only have to configure the web.config for Framework 3.5 but this can easily lazily be done by Visual Studio 2008.

The last week I received a lot of questions on my blog: “Where is the System.Web.Silverlight.dll? I can’t find it.”. Well, I’m sorry, but it doesn’t exist anymore. You have to create the silverlight applications from within javascript, at least if you want to stay compatible.

Consequences for the SharePoint developer

You have two options:

– You are conservative and you install the Silverlight 3 SDK side by side with the Silverlight 2 SDK. In that case you can continue using the SilverlightControl, even with Silverlight 3 applications. 

– You are progressive and you remove the Silverlight 2 SDK and install the Silverlight 3 SDK. In that case you have to change your code.

The conservative way

Install the Silverlight 3 SDK side by side with the Silverlight  2 SDK. In that case the System.Web.Silverlight.dll is still available and can be deployed in the Global Assembly Cache, and you can continue using the Silverlight control, residing in that System.Web.Silverlight.dll. The control works with Silverlight 2 and Silverlight 3 applications.

PS. I haven’t checked HttpWebRequest to call SharePoint web services, so I don’t know if that’s boobytrapped too. 

The progressive way

Update 25/07/2009: because of encountering problems with execution of the script inside the web part code, I altered this post slightly.

This post explains how you can create a SharePoint web part that hosts a Silverlight 3 application. In a following post you will read how to host a Silverlight 3 application from within an application page. Both techniques are the basics that can be used in every SharePoint development scenario.

Create a javascript file with f.e. the name SpSilverlight.js. Include the following script to create a Silverlight application based on the silverlight.CreateObjectEx method:

function onSilverlightError(sender, args) {
         var appSource = "";
         if (sender != null && sender != 0) {
            appSource = sender.getHost().Source;
         }

         var errorType = args.ErrorType;
         var iErrorCode = args.ErrorCode;
         if (errorType == "ImageError" || errorType == "MediaError") {
             return;
         }
         var errMsg = "Unhandled Error in Silverlight Application " +  appSource + "\n" ;
         errMsg += "Code: "+ iErrorCode + "    \n";
         errMsg += "Category: " + errorType + "       \n";
         errMsg += "Message: " + args.ErrorMessage + "     \n";
         if (errorType == "ParserError") {
             errMsg += "File: " + args.xamlFile + "     \n";
             errMsg += "Line: " + args.lineNumber + "     \n";
             errMsg += "Position: " + args.charPosition + "     \n";
         }
         else if (errorType == "RuntimeError") {          
             if (args.lineNumber != 0) {
                 errMsg += "Line: " + args.lineNumber + "     \n";
                 errMsg += "Position: " +  args.charPosition + "     \n";
             }
             errMsg += "MethodName: " + args.methodName + "     \n";
         }
         throw new Error(errMsg);
}
function createSL(divid, swidth, sheight, source, initparameters)
{
    var pluginid = divid + "Plugin";
    var divElement = document.getElementById(divid);
    var altHTML = divElement.innerHTML;
    if (swidth == null)
       swidth='100%';
    if (sheight == null)
       sheight='750px';     
    Silverlight.createObjectEx(
    {
        source: source,
        parentElement: divElement,
        id: pluginid,
        properties:
        {
          // Plug-in properties
          width:swidth, 
          height:sheight,
          minRuntimeVersion:'2.0.31005.0'
        },
        events:
        {
           OnError: onSilverlightError // OnError property value -- event-handler function name.
           // OnLoad property value -- event-handler function name.
        },
        initParams: initparameters
    });
}

You can also create a Silverlight object using the silverlight.CreateObject method and include that in the SpSilverlight.js file.

In your web parts in the OnPreRender event you will have to register following javascript files:

  •  the Silverlight.js file (which comes with Silverlight and can be found in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Silverlight\v3.0\Tools directory)
  • the SpSilverlight.js file you just created.
protected override void OnPreRender(EventArgs e)
{
     base.OnPreRender(e);
     ClientScriptManager cs = Page.ClientScript;// Include the required javascript file.
     if (!cs.IsClientScriptIncludeRegistered("sl_javascript"))
         cs.RegisterClientScriptInclude(this.GetType(), "sl_javascript", "/_LAYOUTS/SL3/Silverlight.js");
     if (!cs.IsClientScriptIncludeRegistered("spsl_javascript"))
         cs.RegisterClientScriptInclude(this.GetType(), "spsl_javascript", "/_LAYOUTS/SL3/SpSilverlight.js");
}

Notice the path to the javascript files. I both deployed them to a sub folder of the 12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS folder. To avoid having to deploy these files for each web part and application page, you can best deploy them once to a single sub folder of the 12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS folder. You can also deploy them to the ClientBin folder under your SharePoint web application (in IIS).

Call the above javascript from within the CreateChildControls method:

protected override void CreateChildControls()
{
    string slstring = "<script type=\"text/javascript\">"
       + "createSL('silverlightHost', '300', '100', '/_LAYOUTS/SL3/HelloSilverlight3.xap', null);"
       + "</script>";
    silverlightHost = new LiteralControl(string.Format("<div id=\"silverlightHost\" style=\"width:100%; height:100%\"></div>{0}", slstring));           
    this.Controls.Add(silverlightHost);
}

If you need to pass data to the Silverlight control you need to set the initParams argument. This is a comma delimited string which has the following syntax:

key1=value1,key2=value2,...

Note that there are no spaces.

The CreateChildControls method would look as follows:

protected override void CreateChildControls()
{
    string xaplocation = "/_LAYOUTS/SL3/HelloSilverlight3.xap";
    string initparams = string.Format("url={0},list=Shared Documents", SPContext.Current.Web.Url);
    string slstring = string.Format("<script type=\"text/javascript\">"
       + "createSL('silverlightHost', '300', '100', '{0}', '{1}');"
       + "</script>", xaplocation, initparams);
    silverlightHost = new LiteralControl(string.Format("<div id=\"silverlightHost\" style=\"width:100%; height:100%\"></div>{0}", slstring));           
    this.Controls.Add(silverlightHost);
}

Voila! If you get this easy one to work, you are ready to go for all the great new stuff Silverlight 3 brings you!

Have fun!

  1. Hi Karine and thanks for your highly insightful blog!

    I struggled as if I was mad trying to create a webpart through using the SilverLight control with 3.0 and was blown away that it disappeared from the SDK server folder but Alas my trail of insanity has finally ended here, to which I am grateful for your help!

    I would like to know how does one set the InitParameters using the progressive way? I am attempting to pass a List Guid through to the SilverLight control.

  2. OK I should have taken more time to read through the code..

    I think I see how the initparms are passed through..

    .
    .
    createSL(‘silverlightHost’, ‘300’, ‘100’, ‘/_LAYOUTS/SL3/HelloSilverlight3.xap’, “<>”);”
    .
    .

    Thanks

  5. Greg,
    Where have you deployed the .xap file and what is the path you specify as source property?

    • I figured out the problem. CreateChildControls is firing before the OnPreRender event, so the “object’ that cannot be found is the createSL function.

      Comment by Greg | July 23, 2009 | Reply

      • Sorry, on second thought, I don’t think this is the problem.

        Comment by Greg | July 23, 2009

      • I thought that the Silverlight dll was removed in version 3? If I use the same webpart code that I use for SL ver 2, it works.

        […]

        using System.Web.UI.SilverlightControls;

        public class mywebpart: WebPart
        {
        private string _XapLocation = @”http://localhost:1856/ClientBin”;

        Silverlight silverlightControl = null;

        public mywebpart()
        {
        this.ExportMode = WebPartExportMode.All;
        }

        [Personalizable( true ), WebBrowsable(), WebDisplayName( “XapLocation” )]
        public string XapLocation
        {
        get { return _XapLocation; }
        set { _XapLocation = value; }
        }

        protected override void OnInit( EventArgs e )
        {
        base.OnInit( e );
        ScriptManager scriptManager = ScriptManager.GetCurrent( this.Page );
        if(scriptManager == null)
        {
        scriptManager = new ScriptManager();
        this.Controls.AddAt( 0, scriptManager );
        }
        }

        protected override void CreateChildControls()
        {
        base.CreateChildControls();
        silverlightControl = new Silverlight();
        silverlightControl.ID = “ChicosSL1”;
        silverlightControl.Source = string.Format( “{0}/mysl.xap”, _XapLocation );
        silverlightControl.Width = Unit.Pixel( 1100 );
        silverlightControl.Height = Unit.Pixel( 1400 );
        silverlightControl.MinimumVersion = “2.0”;

        Controls.Add( silverlightControl );
        }
        }

        Comment by Greg | July 23, 2009

  6. Greg,

    If your code from SL2 is still working, then it is because the System.Web.Silverlight.dll is still in the GAC. This is no problem, you can work that way.

    If you really want to work the SL3 way, you will have to go for the silverlight.createObject way. Your source property seems a bit weird to me: _LAYOUTS means that you deployed to the 12/TEMPLATE/LAYOUTS folder while your SL2 code leads to assume that you created a ClientBin folder in your IIS web application. In that case you will have to specify:
    createSL(‘silverlightHost’, ‘300″, ‘100’, ‘/ClientBin/SLapp.xap’, null)
    Greetz,

    • Thanks, Karine. Did you mean to use minRuntimeVersion:’2.0.31005.0′ or minRuntimeVersion:’3.0.40624.0′ in the createSL func?

  11. Thanks for the walkthrough. Here’s a literal control wrapper class that may simplify things (visual studio 2008).

    First, here’s how to use it:

    protected override void CreateChildControls()
    {
    base.CreateChildControls();

    SilverLightWrapper chartCtl = new SilverLightWrapper(SilverWidth, SilverHeight, XAPLocation, initParams);
    this.Controls.Add(chartCtl);
    }

    //Here’s the control:

    using System;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Web.UI;

    //note that the iframe is required for safari to work //properly
    namespace AIMTeam.WssDashboard.Display
    {
    public class SilverLightWrapper : LiteralControl
    {
    private const String SilverLight3Version = “3.0.4.0”; //”3.0.40624.0″;

    public Int32 Width { get; set; }
    public Int32 Height { get; set; }
    public String XapLocation { get; set; }
    public String InitParameters { get; set; }
    public String MinRuntimeVersion { get; set; }

    public SilverLightWrapper(Int32 Width, Int32 Height, String XapLocation, String InitParams)
    {
    this.Width = Width;
    this.Height = Height;
    this.XapLocation = XapLocation;
    this.InitParameters = InitParams;
    MinRuntimeVersion = SilverLight3Version;
    this.Text = GetControlString();
    }

    public SilverLightWrapper()
    { }

    private String GetControlString()
    {
    StringBuilder ctl = new StringBuilder();

    ctl.Append(“”);
    ctl.Append(“”);
    ctl.Append(“”);
    ctl.Append(“createSL(‘silverlightHost’, “);
    ctl.Append(“‘” + Width.ToString() + “‘,”);
    ctl.Append(“‘” + Height.ToString() + “‘,”);
    ctl.Append(“‘” + XapLocation + “‘,”);
    ctl.Append(“‘” + InitParameters + “‘);”);
    ctl.Append(“”);

    return ctl.ToString();
    }
    }
    }

    Getting an pop-up box when I tried your approche.
    Pop-up is saying
    As a title “message from webpage”
    and a body “end”
    The SL3 app is working fine by it’s own.
    Any suggestions?

  14. I tried this and it shows me nothing. No errors, just the title of the web part and no silverlight control. I tried accessing the xap file through http://sharepoint/_layouts/sl3/sltrial.xap, and it serves me the xap file for downloading. I cannot figure out what is wrong. Any leads on where I could be going wrong. I am using the exact same code without any modifications.

  15. Hi Samrit,
    But this is the correct way to host Silverlight in SharePoint. I’m doing nothing else the past days.
    Check the following:
    – in Internet Explorer delete all files from cache
    – check the source property
    – check width and height of the silvelright control
    – check width and height of the div hosting the silverlight control.
    This should work.

    Thanks very much for the code. I have everything working in SharePoint except passing the parameters. I see where they are passed, but I’m wondering about the syntax. If I want to pass two parameters, can you tell me how to write the string?

  18. Hi Karine,
    The code you provided worked great! I now have a web part with two properties that can be passed in from SharePoint. My next question is that I would like to be able to retain the unique property values set by every SharePoint user. I thought I could accomplish this by setting the properties in my code to: Personalizable(PersonalizationScope.User) but when I log into SharePoint as Bob, and change a property value, I also see that change when I log in as Jen. Do you know what else I might have to set up to get this to work?

    This is weird because Personalizable(PersonalizationScope.User) is the way to go. If I have time this weekend, I’ll try something out.

  20. Hi Karine,
    No need to spend your weekend on this one! I did some more experimenting in SharePoint and found that I was just not selecting the correct settings. From the Welcome dropdown list there are two options; ‘Show Shared View’ and ‘Show Personal View’. When I open the Web Part in ‘Show Shared View’, then can then edit the Web Part with the option ‘Modify Shared Web Part’. These changes can be seen by everyone if in ‘Shared View’. When I open the Web Part in ‘Show Personal View’ I get ‘Modify My Webpart’ instead which is the option that will allow my personalized items to stick.
    Thanks for your quick responses to my questions.

  21. Hello, I am hoping for some insight. I am not new to SL dev, but I am new to SharePoint web parts. I have followed your example and everything works perfectly (thank you for that) however, I am completely unclear as to how to enable debugging my silverlight code. The debugger breaks on Web part code, but I get the “Symbols have not been loaded” thingy on all bp’s in my silverlight code. PLEASE if at all possible, step me through this as I am trying to push SL dev in sharepoint here at work, and I’m kind of all alone on this (they are really resisting the change).

    Thank you very much,
    Chris

  22. Hi Chris,
    You can easily debug your silverlight code by attaching the debugger to the iexplorer.exe process from within Visual Studio. Please, let me know if this is not clear enough. In that case I’ll make a separate blog post for it.

    • Hi Karine,

      First, thanks for the great article. It’s been a huge help. I am hoping you can help me with a debugging problem. When I attach the debugger to the iexplore process (making sure that type is Silverlight), none of my breakpoints are hit and the symbols do not load. I have a SL class library project that builds the XAP file, and on build it copies the .xap file to a folder in the 12\Template\Layouts folder. This is the location I reference in the web part I created to host the SL control.It seems that this is causing a problem with debugging..any suggestions?

      Thanks,

  23. Thank you for the quick reply, this does work and helps me very much (I’ll put you on my Christmas card list :), I was actually attaching to the w3wp.exe process. Now that it works maybe you can point me into another direction, how would batch automate this so I can simply hit F5? The build, deploy, run F5 then attach is kinda slow and a bit of a pain.

    Thanks again,

  24. Hi Chris,
    Unfortunately I have no (quick) reply for this: I always do it manually. Perhaps I’ll take a look at it over the weekend. Perhaps this can put you in the right direction: you can define post-build commands in the Project Properties (right-click project in Solution Explorer, choose Properties and select the Build Events tab). A lot of people use this to deploy the solution automatically.
    But the weekends starts for me now 🙂

  26. Hi Larkin,

    The way you deploy the .xap file and the way you attach the iexplorer process is just fine. But sometimes Internet Explorer caches the Silverlight application. Try to delete browser history and refresh the page. Then attach to the iexplorer process from within Visual Studio and try to debug again. This should solve your problem.

    The given key was not present in the Dictionary at

    Can you please tell me how to Correct this?
    Thanks in advance

    • Prasad,

      If I am reading your code correctly, you are simply passing the XmlUrl value to the initparams property. However, you need to pass it in a key/value format, such as:

      XmlUrl=http://somesite.com?xmlfeed=2 (Except you probably have to escape the special characters, no doubt)

      Otherwise, the Silverlight control has no way of knowing what the name of the key is.

      Hope that helps,
      Larkin

    Thanks for your reply,
    I have silverlight control,which uses webservices.when i run the code,it works perfectly fine.But when i add this control in Sharepoint it gives me following Exception…

    Unhandled Error in Silverlight Application An exception occurred during the operation, making the result invalid. Check InnerException for exception details. at System.ComponentModel.AsyncCompletedEventArgs.RaiseExceptionIfNecessary()

    I did lot of search about this error,its a cross domain issue.
    After this i added ClientAccessPolicy.xml file and CrossDomain.xml file in my root C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\1312

    But still i am getting the same error.
    My sharepoint Url is http://punib9345:1312/NewList

  30. Hi Prasad,
    You have to add the clientaccesspolicy.xml to the root of your SharePoint web application using SharePoint Designer. It’s not working when you add it to the C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\1312 directory.

  35. You can create your Editor Part as you normally do for a standard web part. The value of the property can then be passed using the InitParams parameter of the Silverlight control.

  40. Hi Karine,

    I’m trying to get your samples to work, but with no sucess.

    First I’m developing in a virtual machine that runs in vmware, it has Windows Server 2003, Visual Studio 2008 and MOSS 2007.

    I’ve deployed some of your samples, but no render done. For instance, in the application hosting sample, I go to the page, the “Hello World” control is there (because I right click and it show that it’s a silverlight 3 control) but it does show anything, doesn’t render the control.

    Have you any clue. Can it be because I’m running it on vmware.

    Thanks

    Regards

    Paulo

  41. Hi Paulo,
    In my opinion, it has nothing to do with you running in vmware.
    I have a couple of questions:
    – have you made the hello.xap file yourself?
    – Where have you deployed the .xap file?
    – Is that the URL you used for the Source argument of the Silverlight control?

    Error: Unhandled Error in Silverlight Application. The given key was not in dictionary.

  43. It seems that in the Startup method of the Silverlight application you want to retrieve a key from the InitParams dictionary that does not exist. Do you pass in arguments in the initparams attribute from within your SharePoint web part? Do they correspond with the one you try to read from the InitParams dictionary?

    • Hi Karine,
      Thanks for you reply. If possible, can you explain it with some code snippet. I am new in Sharepoint and Silverlight.
      I think The above error is regarding query string. When I am using following statements in my silverlight application, error occurs. If i comment it, it works properly.

      if (System.Windows.Browser.HtmlPage.Document.QueryString[“ID”] != null)

      dbid = System.Windows.Browser.HtmlPage.Document.QueryString[“ID”].ToString();

      How should I pass the initparams attribute within SharePoint?
      Thanks again.

      Comment by Kaustubh | April 20, 2010 | Reply

  44. Hi,
    If you have the necessary information in your QueryString, you can use that from within Silverlight. If your error occurs at that point in your code, it means that you don’t have the ID argument in your QueryString.

    I use the following in my code to test on existance of QueryString arguments:

    // also retrieve the item ID from the querystring
    if (HtmlPage.Document.QueryString.ContainsKey(“ID”))
    {
    int.TryParse(HtmlPage.Document.QueryString[“ID”].ToString(), out ItemID);
    }

    Can your perhaps post your querystring?

  46. You can also override the method RenderControl:

    public override void RenderControl(HtmlTextWriter writer)
    {
    base.RenderControl(writer);

    writer.WriteLine(“”);
    writer.WriteLine(” “);
    if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(initParams))
    {
    writer.WriteLine(” “);
    }
    writer.WriteLine(” “);
    writer.WriteLine(” “);
    writer.WriteLine(”
    “);
    writer.WriteLine(“”);
    }

      2) If two same silverlight webpart are on same page but in different web part zone then they should adjust their sizes (resize automatically) on page refresh.

      I tried lot of techiques but unable to resize the javascript window.

  51. This may be related to some of the questions asked above, but have you run into problems with a Silverlight control not stretching to its full height when hosted in a MOSS 2007 web part? I can take an SL app and view it in a standalone test page and the control will stretch to the full height of its contents. However, when I host that same control in a MOSS 2007 web part, the control won’t display unless I set an explicit height (e.g. 500px). Setting height to 100% in the createSL function call doesn’t have any effect. I assume it is caused by the heinous HTML rendered on most SharePoint pages, but I could be wrong.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Larkin

  52. In regards to my previous post, something I noticed while troubleshooting the issue is that if render the object tag as a literal control the problem does not occur. It seems that using the createObjectEx function to render a Silverlight control has some disadvantages.

  53. I spoke too soon. In a MOSS web part, even rendering the object tag explicitly doesn’t solve the problem.

  64. Yes, that should be possible: create a new Silverlight app using Visual Studio 2010 and look at the attributes within the tag. Change the minRuntimeVersion attribute and the link url inside the tag.

  65. Hi Karen,

    This is how code looks like.
    How do I get the Download link to point to SIliverLight 4.0

    protected override void CreateChildControls()
    {
    if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(this.GetListUrl()))
    {
    LoadEditPane();
    }
    else
    {
    LoadSilverlightChart();
    }
    base.CreateChildControls();
    }

    private void LoadSilverlightChart()
    {
    this.ChromeType = PartChromeType.TitleOnly;
    this.Weburl = string.IsNullOrEmpty(this.Weburl) ? XXXXXX.XAP_FILE : string.Empty;

    SilverlightWebPart myMediaCtrl = new SilverlightWebPart();

    myMediaCtrl.ID = this.ID;
    myMediaCtrl.Url = this.Weburl;

    if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(this.InitParams))
    {
    this.InitParams = “Part=XXXXXX”;
    }

  66. Sony, I need the code that instantiates the Silverlight application, not the web part.

  67. Hi Karen,

  68. Hi Sony, I used reflector to take a look at the internals of the OOB SilverlightWebPart and I’m afraid that the version to download is hardcoded in the Microsoft.SharePoint dll. The CreateChildControls method contains the following:

    \r\n \r\n \r\n “, new object[] { SPResource.GetString(“GetSilverlightImageAlt”, new object[0]) });”

    So I don’t think you can change this behavior, unless you build your own SilverlightWebPart.

  69. mmm, the code does not want to be completely displayed but the hyperlink is hardcoded to download Silverlight 3.

  70. Hi Karine,

    I was able to integrate my silverlight 4 application in Sharepoint 2007 mostly with help from your blog. Thanks for the tutorial!!!….. My silverlight application needs information from an SQL database to work successfully. I’m trying to acheive this by using a WCF Service. I’ve successfully gotten this to work in VS by adding a Service Reference to my silverlight application but when I try to use it in my web part I recieve errors that uri( for the WCF Reference) can’t be found.

    Do you have any experience with integrating Silverlight and WCF Services in SharePoint 2007 as one web part? Or is this even possible?

  71. Hi Ro0628,
    the only experience I have with a WCF Service in SharePoint 2007 was a WCF service that read SQL Server content, but just for demo purposes. I can’t remember having problems with the URI but I had to change the app.config file to change the binding attribute of the endpoint element into basicHttpBinding, but that was for Silverlight.
    There were also a number of changes in config files at the SharePoint site to make the WCF service accessible from within SharePoint, like defining a .svc file that needs to be deployed in a sub folder of the ISAPI folder, and a virtual path provider for WCF services.
    If you think that one of these things could be the root cause of your problems, please don’t hesitate to send me a mail at karinebosch at hotmail dot com and I’ll send you the article (that never was published) in which I describe in detail all steps to take.

    • Hi Nimisha,
      I think your best option is to create a new project to have the references already right. Then copy in your code. I assume that you will have to redevelop certain things but that most of your code will run ok.
      Kind regards,
      Karine

Debugging is not firing when I attach to w3wp.exe normally.When I try to set attach to ‘Silver Light Type’ it is telling ; ‘Unable to attach to the process. The 32-bit version of the Visual Studio Remote Debugging Monitor (MSVSMON.EXE) cannot be used to debug 64-bit processes or 64-bit dumps. Please use the 64-bit version instead.’

    I ran the 64 bit MSVSMON.exe from ‘C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE\Remote Debugger\x64’ folder. And now my Task manager is also showing Visual Studio Remote Debugging Monitor from the X64 folder. But still Iam not able to debug my silver light webpart also a normal asp.net silver light applucation also.

    Iam stuck by this issue for a day. Can you please help me with some suggestions ? It will be agreat help..
