  • I went to that site in IE8 and couldn't see the content (also tried Firefox 3). So I did a view source, and saw there are multiple full HTML documents in that one page (multiple html and multiple body tags, one of which is a whole document embedded in a TD)

    I checked out his Silverlight.js. He's still using one from the pre-released versions of Silverlight 1.0. It won't even work with SL 1.0 as I recall. Here are the comments from the file:

    ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    //
    //  Silverlight.js   version 0.9
    //
    //  This file is provided by Microsoft as a helper file for websites that
    //  incorporate Silverlight Objects.  It must be used in conjunction with createSilverlight.js,
    //  or alternatively, a custom .js file specific to your site.  The 0.9 version of this file is
    //  hard coded to match Microsoft Silverlight v1.0 Beta, which exposes 0.9 as its version number.    
    //  This file is provided as is.
    //
    ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
     

    You can let him know that he needs to pick up a production Silverlight.js. He can grab the correct version from the Silverlight 2 RTW tools. 

    Hope that helps.

  • Unless their markup has a syntax error that the early revs of the runtime glossed over, you should be able to just use Silverlight 2.

    Silverlight 2 is backwards compatible, the only restriction being no support for PPC Macs.

  • Hi,

    I am trying to view the below link on the machine where Silverlight 2.0 Browser Plugin is installed.

    http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/blogs/mikeg/SilverlightVideos/PowerPoint_2007_and_Slide_Libraries/slidelibraries.aspx

     But it always shows Install Silverlight link. I confirmed from the site owner that it is developed using Silverlight 1.0.

    So I want to try installing 1.0 plugin.

     

    Regards

  • I just went to this page and could see the website. As 'Pete' mentioned in the above post that SL2 runtime is backward compatible as well. I do not have 1.0, only 2.0 on my machine.

    You may install runtime from here.
