Guys… As mentioned in my last post that I’ll be sharing a live demo of Desktop simulation we did in Silverlight. Please don’t go mad because I’m a bit late to do it. Actually I have been so busy last 2-3 days but now its live.

 

Enter any password and login, you are ready to play. Don’t try this on Real Windows because such a deed will be useless :P

 

If you want to host it on your website, you are more than welcome to do that and here is the iframe you need to add to your webpage:

<iframe src="http://silverlight.services.live.com/invoke/69442/Windows%207%20SL%202/iframe.html" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" style="width:100%; height:600px"></iframe>

And here is standalone demo.

P.S: Silverlight Streaming does not support Silverlight 3 right now so I could not upload a version converted in that with offline execution support.

[Source Code]

Happy Silverligting!

Hi.. this is Waqas.. We had developed this demo for Talented Earth Organization's(TEO) Training Program and we never knew that it will go for Silverlight ShowCase.. now we will continue maturing this application and will come up with something special ;) Although we have already developed media player 12 for this very application and will be integrated in next release and will share code with you guys... so stay tuned we will b back :) you can email me at: malik_vakaz@hotmail.com

Hi Zubair,

Thanks for liking the app :). There is a bit of learning curve to get a grip on Silverlight. First of all you need the tools to get all this done. See here what tools you need: http://silverlight.net/GetStarted/

And then to start learning you can watch these videos: http://silverlight.net/Learn/

I have also shared the code which you can download and play with. But without understanding of the technology, you'll not be able to understand what's in the code. So you need to learn it from the links I have shared. www.silverlight.net is a one great place to answer all your questions. If you have any specific questions, please feel free to ask.

Best Regards,
Rizwan a.k.a RizwanSharp

Hi Azhar,



Thanks for your comment. But what's not working? I and many other people can view it on iour machines. Is it not loading up? Do you have Silverlight 2.0 Installed to view the content? Have you tried it in another browser than IE or Firefox?



Thanks,

Rizwan

@SilverDude
Its a security restriction in Silverlight that it block most of the keyboard keys while in full screen mode except for some keys e.g Arrow Keys...

@Chakravarthi
That can be done, infact many people have already done Windowing Framework in Silverlight... You should search on the web.

@Sudhaker
Yes that could be made better but this was just a small experiment so we did it and dont plan to enhance it. Anything can be easily added to the project. You can download the code and add it yourself :).

Thanks for the Feedback Guys...

Best Regards,
RizwanSharp

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.
Can you please do it for me?
I found few solutions in internet. but I could not integrate them with your app as I am a new bee to silverlight.
I request you to provide this feature so that It will be complete. Windows7 without showing windows is not complete naa

Wow this is magnificent! Great work! I was wondering if you are planning on doing anything else with this?
ex. being able to access the computer button network options and such would be a great asset!

never the less this was a huge eye opener and I congratulate you on your success! many more great sucesses wished for you in your future endeavors I am now a loyal follower!

Hi! Exellent job you have done! But can you make it more functional like the Vista simulator (try it) Because there you can surf on the internet :) I have Windows XP and i want Windows 7 but i dont have a good enough PC. But with the simulator i can "have" Windows 7 :D Please?

Doesn't work for me, it just loads up as a page with a blank white section where the simulator should be, i have silverlight 3 installed.

I'm sorry but this app was hosted on microsoft Silverlight Streaming website and Microsoft has closed that. So application is no more live.

I don't have any other hosting option so I wont be able to make it live. You can download code from the bottom of the articled and run on your own computer.

Thanks :).
