Silverlight 3 Enabling Out of Browser Mode – You’re Doing It Wrong

Thursday, September 17, 2009 9:55 AM

If you do a search for enabling out of browser mode, you’ll come across blog entries suggesting to tell you to add something like this in your AppManifest.xml file:

You may be getting an error when you try to run this saying that…

Unknown Element: Deployment.ApplicationIdentity

Because Silverlight evolves so quickly, sometimes info online can become outdated. It turns out that in the release version of Silverlight 3 the above solution is obsolete. To enable OOB mode, here’s what you do:

Go to your Silverlight project properties and check the “Enable running application out of browser” checkbox.

If you want, click the “Out-of-Browser Settings” button and enter in the details for your app.

Build your app and you’ll notice a new file has been created to contain the OOB settings.

And that’s all there is! No more messy xml crap to have to alter by hand.

Hi,

I have installed SL 3 Developer Runtime and SL Tools for VS2k8 SP1. But in the SL project properties, I am not finding that option. Please help. 11/11/2009 11:00 AM | Gopal

Good article, annoying to have to change it all manually. 9/2/2010 3:03 PM | OpenStack

When virtue and modesty enlighten her charms, the lustre of a beautiful woman is brighter than the stars of heaven, and the influence of her power it is in vain to resist.
