Hi Jim

Yes I'd agree with that thinking.

If we could get this working though there would be some great possibilities opened up :)

Kind regards

I have removed the references to System.Data, so that should help out a bit. I'll take a look at the StringDictionary next. From what you mention, we may want to look for a temporary work-around until Microsoft ships a newer Silverlight since they are planning to support StringDictionary eventually.

Hello Jim

The Silverlight runtime is a subset of CLR - it's only 4.5Mb downloadable.

I've looked at the NMS assembly so far.

References to (which aren't used anyway and are only there because VS adds them by default) need to be removed because that is not supported in SL.

After that point there are just two functions that won't compile in the Utils.URI because they uses System.Collection.Specialized.StringDictionary which again is not in the SL runtime. According to some doc StringDictionary is meant to be there in Beta 2 but it's not :)

I might roll my own StringDictionary to close this off. Then I'm hoping ActiveMQ.dll will be as painless - which would be great.

kind regards

I have not tried this, but the compiler seems reasonable. My understanding is that the Silverlight runtime is not the same as the CLR 2.0. You would need to need to compile them to target the Silverlight target runtime. Let me know what you are able to come up with, and I can possibly look into adding it as a compile option. Or if you can modify the NAnt build scripts and submit a patch, that would be great.

Hello all

I've been thinking about Silverlight and decided tonight to try my NMS client assemblies in a Silverlight 2 Beta project. The IDE complains that the assemblies were not built against the Silverlight runtime.

Has anyone tried this before??

If not, I'll go ahead and report back :)

kind regards
