  • You need to create a site in IIS (or just use the default web site if you want), place your Silverlight application in the ClientBin directory, and create an HTML page with an object tag pointing to the XAP (an example of this page should have been created for you by Visual Studio when you added the Silverlight application to your web project).  Additionally, you may have to register the MIME type for the xap to be served correctly by IIS and directions for that task can be found at the following URL:

  • Are you wanting to know how to get your application hosted or are you having trouble accessing it?  If you need to know how to host it, here is one set of steps:

    1) Open the solution containing your Silverlight application and the web that will be hosting it.

    2) Right-click on the web project and select "Publish..."

    3) Set the Publish Method to "File System" and the target location to an empty directory on your computer (for this example we'll say it is "c:\temp\webfiles") - note that if you're more comfortable with this process you could have the publish tool copy the files straight to your IIS folder

    4) Copy the contents of your publish folder (not the folder itself though) to "C:\inetpub\wwwroot"

    5) in your web browser go to http://localhost and verify that the site displays

    If the site displays, then you have successfully set up the site in IIS and will now need to work on getting the other machines on your network able to access it.  One of the most likely hurdles you will face on that end will be to ensure Windows Firewall (or whatever similar product you have running on your workstation) is set up to allow inbound traffic on port 80.

  • But When i am running my application its showing DB error.

    What is the exact wording of the error you are receiving?

    Friday, August 12, 2011 8:35 AM
  • Hai !!! Rakun

            Kyle has given above few steps. Follow that And ask him to replace the localhost with your IP address. And remaining is

    same Something like '


    If this is your URL then just place localhost with ur IP and ask whos is willing to access your application to press enter,.

     It will work. now he also can access your application if he is in LAN connection.

    But still i have problem. Which application i hosted that is not connected with my local Database.....So its showing DB error....

    Lets see next post for DB.

    Hope it helps u ,

    Thanks & Regards,

  • Hai !!! Rakun

                   You can copy all content of the published folder and you can make one new folder in www root and you can paste it.

    or else you can just copy the published folder to www root folder and then run application url like

  • Hai !!! Rakun

                   Actually I am connecting my DB with KASUMSPC-001\SQLEXPRESS. and My Connection strings is

        <add name="TEMP_DBConnectionString" connectionString="Data Source=KASUMSPC-001\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=TEST_DB;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=sa;Password=sanjoykss"
          providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

    So here i cant able to change my server name which is KASUMSPC-001\SQLEXPRESS. So what shall i do ?

    Do u have any Solution for this ?

    If so please help me here ..

    Tuesday, August 16, 2011 2:06 AM
  • I am not quite understand why you want to change server name, if you are connnecting to KASUMSPC-001\SQLEXPRESS, then just leave it as that. Do you still get any error? 

    Thursday, August 18, 2011 3:41 AM
  • Yes .....Same error here ....

    Can you help me 2 solve this problem ?

    Thursday, August 18, 2011 3:46 AM
  • <connectionStrings> 
     <add name="DataDBConn" connectionString="Data Source=;Initial Catalog=DBNAME;User ID=sa;Password=sa@adm;" /> 
    Try with this. If not solved then insted of "KASUMPC-001\SQLEXPRESS" only put "KASUMPC-001" . 
    I think this will solve ur problem.
    Thanks for helping me for hosting
