I was trying to create and run my first Silverlight OOB (Out of Browser) application. It all seems very simple to set up but then it still runs in a browser.

I found the solution but it doesn't seem at all obvious to me.

To set as an OOB application. Choose  Enable running application out of browser as below.

 


 

Then click on the button Out-of-browser settings...

 

I selected bottom two check boxes.

Now I would have thought I'd click run at design time and I would get my application running in a window.

No it doesn't do that it runs in a browser!?!

 

What you have to do now is right mouse click on the browser window and select from the popup menu:

Install Silverlight Application onto this computer

 

 

This then allows me to install the App on the Desktop and I can run it from there as I wanted Out of Browser

 

 

Now all I suppose I need to do is write a useful application.

Thanks for the information.

You mentioned that the application still does not automatically run out of the browser and that you must right click the application and choose
"Install Silverlight Application etc..."

This video explains how to create a button that says "install" so that the user doesn't have to know to right click the applicaiton.
