Silverlight gives the error "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hello, I'm new to SharePoint 2010.  I have an SP2010 environment up and running.  When I click on a link that activates Silverlight, I get an error that reads "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage".  The Server is on a different domain. When I use remote desktop to access the server, I can open up the same link using IE and I can see the content no problem. An example would be from the calendar page.  If I choose a date and select 'add', the browser fades and I see a 'loading' screen.  Then the next screen I get the error.  If I follow the same process on the server using remote desktop, everything works. What could the problem be?

Showing Designer error for Silverlight App when trying to access resource which contains code e.Resu

Environment is: Silverlight 4, VS Studio 2010. Designer is showing error in a Silverlight App when trying to access a resource as below. And there are no build or runtime errors. Extensive research found that, in the "InvestorsProvider" class I am using wcf services, which has a callback method. In the call back method I am using this statement "this.MyProperty = e.Result" where e.Result is ObservableCollection. If I remove the e.Result it is not showing any designer problem. <UserControl.Resources> <local:InvestorsProvider x:Name="investorsProvider"></local:InvestorsProvider> </UserControl.Resources> Here is the error System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException [Async_ExceptionOccurred]Arguments: Debugging resource strings are unavailable. Often the key and arguments provide sufficient information to diagnose the problem. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=106663&Version=4.0.50401.0&File=System.dll&Key=Async_ExceptionOccurred at System.ComponentModel.AsyncCompletedEventArgs.RaiseExceptionIfNecessary() at SilverlightApplication9.ServiceReference1.GetInvestorsCompletedEventArgs.get_Result() in C:\Documents and Settings\mennis\my documents\visual studio 2010\Projects\SilverlightApplication9\SilverlightApplication9\Service References\ServiceReference1\Reference.cs:line 115 at SilverlightApplication9.Inves

Silverlight enabled web service security error

I tried to create a SL enabled Web Service by following the example from the Microsoft link: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc197940(VS.95).aspx When I got to step 6 to test the web service that I created (View in Browser), I got the following error:  Security settings for this service require 'Anonymous' Authentication but it is not enabled for the IIS application that hosts this service. My IIS is located on my local machine with Windows Integrated Authentication and Anonymous access unchecked. After checking the Anonoymous access checkbo, I still got the above error. I have read other post on the Internet that Silverlight uses BasicHttpbinding but the settings in the web.config file was created by Visual Studio 2010 (running .NET 4.0), so I didn't think I need to mess with it. The following is the section from the web.config: <system.serviceModel>   <behaviors>    <serviceBehaviors>     <behavior name="">      <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" />      <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false" />     </behavior>    </serviceBehaviors>   </behaviors>   <bindings>    <customBinding>     <binding name=

"Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" from IE7 - ASP.NET Development Server Error?

Dear everybody, I've just installed Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 on Windows Vista Ultimate. I created "New Web Site" and Started Debugging the page to see the blank page rendered. To my surprise, IE 7.0 displayed an error message saying: "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". I spent some time investigating and here is the result: The page going to be rendered assumes port 49791: http://localhost:49791/WebSite3/Default.aspx The ASP.NET Development Server operates under different port no: 49793 After changing the url above manually to use the port of ASP.NET Development Server, the webpage gets renderred correctly: http://localhost:49793/WebSite3/Default.aspx ASP.NET Development Server uses dynamic ports. I noticed that Debugging process always assumes port number lower by 2 than the real port number of the ASP.NET DevSer. Therefore Debug process never runs and displays the page. I do not want to manually edit the local host URL after every page rebuild, so my question is following: How to make the "Start Debugging" function to use appropriate port of the ASP.NET Development server? How to make Visual Studio to open the page being debugged? To mention couple of things I tried: I reinstalled Visual Studio2008, tried to disabled IPv6 as some threads recommen

Hi all,

After installing Visual Studio 2010 and Silverlight Tools for VS 2010, I tried to generate a new Silverlight project and got an error in the xaml designer. 

None of the .xaml files generated by VS can be opened in design mode.

I have the KB30319.348 installed. The error is reproduced below:

Error while using Silverlight class library in .NET 4 Client Profile project


Failed to figure out where to post this problem.

I have two projects in solution: Silverlight 4 assembly and Console application targeted .NET 4 Client Profile. There's an interface in Silverlight assembly which has a return value typed IEnumerable<IPEndPoint>. In console application I'm trying to implement this interface. I have the following error compiling console application project: 'PeerToPeerNameResolver' does not implement interface member 'INameResolver.Resolve(string)'. 'PeerToPeerNameResolver.Resolve(string)' cannot implement 'INameResolver.Resolve(string)' because it does not have the matching return type of 'System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<System.Net.IPEndPoint>'

I've never defined my own class IPEndPoint, nor IEnumerable<T> interface. How can I get rid of this error? Method code is 

		public IEnumerable<IPEndPoint> Resolve(string name)
var peername = new PeerName(name, PeerNameType.Unsecured);

Serving Silverlight Apps from Windows Mobile

Even if mobile dev is not my every day work, thanks to the .Net Compact Framework, it's still .Net programming.

Here is the scenario:

You come back home, you have a windows mobile phone wifi capable and you want to quickly get access to your phone pictures from your home network.
You just activate the Wifi, run my app and then browse to the provided link from any computer on the network.

Building a 3-Tier App with Silverlight 3, .NET RIA Services, and Azure Table Storage

Silverlight 3, .NET RIA Services, and Windows Azure Services Platform makes a 3-tier Cloud application easier to build: Silverlight 3 as presentation tier, .NET RIA services as the business logic and data access tier, and Windows Azure Table as the data storage tier. The sample application in this article demonstrates the architecture with a simple Survey application with all these technologies working together from Windows Azure.

Silverlight Simple Animation

Silverlight has several built in techniques for animating controls. Many of these technologies are particularly useful for creating simple animations meant to decorate a web page with eye catching movement that draws the reader's attention. In this post I will skip over these decorative technologies, and instead show how to create a simple animation using a technique similar to those used in many games.

Silverlight Slideshow Viewer for SharePoint

This series will walk through the Building Blocks that I have created to demonstrate and improve the SharePoint end user experience. I have been using many of these techniques in my developer focused demos for SharePoint 2010 (and in some cases SharePoint 2007). My plan is to use this post series to distribute my code and provide more detail on the why and the how of many of my code samples

Easier Silverlight Development against SharePoint

I have been spending quite a bit of time lately working with Silverlight 3 and SharePoint. One of the first big shifts for me is that Silverlight Development is Client development. Silverlight runs in the browser, but it runs on the client, so no SharePoint Object Model code. You have to access all of the goodness that is SharePoint through its web services.
