  • Do i still have to download XBAP application on my machine if a website is made in Silverlight? Or has the XBAP application been phased out? If phased out, what is the substitute?

  • Hi,

    No XBAP is different platform compared to Silverlight. XBAP is WPF Xaml Browser Application which would be needed only if you run a xbap page or application in your browser. But Silverlight is different approach. You have to install the silverlight to access the page which contains Silverlight. 


    XBAP and Silverlight are different and you dont have to install the XBAP if you are using Silverlight only!
