Launch & Debug without Browser?

    Question

  • Is it possible to launch and debug a Silverlight application without involving the browser?  Is there a way to instantiate the Silverlight Plug-In [1] and pass in its parameters?  To me this would seem similar to running a Java Applet from within Eclipse or Netbeans to debug it.  It would be nice if I could do something like that with VS 2008 Pro & Silverlight 2.

  •  My understanding is that Silverlight must be executed in browser. The reason is that the Silverlight run-time only can execute in browser. There is some software can run Silverlight inside their program but it is not recommended. Browsers always the best choice here.

  • Actually, Silverlight is a browner plugin after all. :)
