: My silverlight app gets an error on a windows 7 enterprise 64 bit OS. From a school network it will load but it wont access a sql DB. It will work from my laptop in the school and I have the same access rights.
I spoke to the tech in the school and he claims it isnt a permission thing and also my asp.net app works. That asp.net app connects to the same DB on the same school environemt that the silverlight app doesnt.
Both of the application are hosted on an external site of course.
It must be these WCF calls issue.
THis isnt making any sense to me as on XP it all works fine.
Problem is I tried this on a few computers and silverlight does work . It is only when calling the database it stalls with the error.
I can run SL app without WCF no problem on the computers.
