Unhandled Error in Silverlight 2 Application

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


Recently I could not access WebPages using Microsoft Silverlight.

When I try to access the pages and load those to my Internet Explorer, the following error message is encountered.

Is this due to any internal problem of Silverlight?

Unhandled Error in Silverlight 2 Application


Hi Edger,

This error occurs when the Silverlight mime types for the websites you are trying to access, are not registered. Hence the internet information service is unable to send files to the browser. To solve this problem, go to the following site and follow the given instructions: errors in silverlight.

Otherwise,the problem could be a result of you having a slow internet connection. You can check that. If you are on a wireless network, just check the strength of the bars. If the bars are only saying two or three that are occupied, then the internet connection is definitely slow.

If it is a cable network, ping www.google.co.ke and see how many packets are being transmitted per second.

Hope this helps.

Check the problem first, then if the webserver is setup properly to its host in the sliver light application. You need to type this:

.xaml application/xaml+xml

.xap application/x-silverlight-app

.xbap application/x-ms-xbap

Choose the virtual directory or default website in the IIS ; then open the context menu and chose the properties and select the HTTP-headers tab, and just simply click the button labeled ; files type in the MIME Map section ; then choose the New type and type the extension from the above field and then the application type the MIME type field.  After done, click and ok ; then click again to apply the main menu.  If you're done, restart your computer if required.
