  • Hi Boyd,

    There is no silverlight plugin for Windows Phone.

    And like Christian mentioned, we can use silverlight 5 platform to develop Windows Phone 8 Application.

  • when I browse to my silverlight web page I get the familiar dialog:

    To view this content please install Microsoft Silverlight.  Click here to install.

    So I click here.

    I get to www.microsoft.com/getsilverlight/get-started/install/default.aspx?reason=unsupported platform&v=3.040818.0

    There it gives me the option to download to SL for PC or Mac, no WP8!

    How can I get SL5 on my WP8?

    Ok, Now what?
