  • Question

  • We have a Silverligh application. If the user does not have Silverlight, he should be prompted to download and install Silverlight from Microsoft site. After the insstallation is completed, he sould be automatically re-directed to our application.

    Here is the  scenario

    Application asks the user to download Silverlight
    The application the takes the user to the Microsoft site
    The user download and installs silverlight
    There is no way to get back into applicaiton from here

  • Hye Rashid,

    This cannot be accomplished, Because, when user is navigated to microsoft website to download, then come you can reload your silverlight application html page.

    Another alternate might be is that, you need to have services(windows) running in background, which will monitor your silverlight application as soon as user install the Silverlight successfuly, serives can invoke the silverlight application url , i mean reloading of html page.
