Open Silverlight OOB on url, if installed – Education Career Blog

Is there anyway to make the OOB version of my Silverlight app open(if installed) when i go to <— where the Xap is loaded.

Just like a irc client opens when i go to irc://servername

but instead of prefix can my app open the OOB version if
App.Current.InstallState == InstallState.Installed
when it’s loaded in the browser?.


As of Silverlight 4 there is no way of launching oob application from the url. Irc and other applications can register custom url protocol handler to launch themselves from url. If you can create native application and install it on user’s computer you could use it as a launcher for your oob application.
