Silverlight: Out-of-Browser Settings (with error resolving)

This article will give you basic idea about “Out-Of-Browser” settings under Silverlight:
Just want to give some information regarding these settings.

These are the Softwares/Tools I'm using:
  •  MicrosoftVisualStudio 2010
  •  .net framework 4.0
  •  Silverlight 4.0

Basically, we run our Silverlight project under default settings i.e. application running on our browser with link as http://localhost:3906/..........
If we want to run an application outside the browser then we can follow these steps:

  • Considering name of the project as “SilverlightOutOfBrowserAppAMTDW” and just showing one label and one image under application for simplicity.
          Solution Explorer -> SilverlightOutOfBrowserAppAMTDW 
                                        -> right click
                                        -> Properties

Silverlight -

                     This window will open after following the above steps:

Silverlight -
Out of Browser Settings

  •       Enable the settings:

Silverlight -

  •       Now click on the button “Out-of-Browser Settings …” :
                Below window will open now:

Silverlight -

  •       CheckBox:“Require elevated trust when running outside the browser

Silverlight -
Enabling Settings

  •   Now after running, your Silverlight Application will look like this:
Silverlight -


But if you want to view your application under browser again, then you may face some problem, the same is discussed below (with it's solution).


If you undo the changes done before then your application will run under browser but the address bar will show the following ( not localhost):

C:\Documents and Settings\amt.dw\My Documents\Visual Studio2010\Projects\SilverlightOutOfBrowserAppAMTDW………………

Error under above:
While working on Silverlight application you may get into some problem.
I went through the same condition and resolved it after trying different ways (at the end succeeded in solving)
This article will give you a general idea about the error which may occur if you want to go to the same situation which you were in the initial stage.
If you want the above application to run again as under browser then even after undoing the changes, you may not get the desired result. 
The project will run under browser but will run like this:

C:\Documents and Settings\amt.dw\My Documents\Visual Studio2010\Projects\SilverlightOutOfBrowserAppAMTDW……

For running under browser (i.e.….as http://localhost:3906/.........can be viewed under browser address) follow the following step:
->  Solution Explorer
->  SilverlightOutOfBrowserAppAMTDW.web 
->  RightClick
->  Set AsStartup project.

Now save and run your application.
