So I’ve done my first (very rough version) of my Silverlight Launcher.
This application allows you to run any silverlight application locally on your desktop.
The difference between this application (and running under the file system) is that you can make network calls. I’ve include a Digg Sample to prove my point.
At the moment the application is restricted port 1234 however I will expand this in the future. I will also talk about the source etc in the future.
If your silverlight application needs to talk back to your web server (then you should use an absolute http reference for your WCF call in your silverlight application, and have clientaccesspolicy.xml or crossdomain.xml server).
In my sample application try searching for Apple i haven't put any exception handling
I’m gonna be taking this application a lot further in the future
P.S. If you run in Vista you need to run this as an administrator (in future i will do the prompt)
