Silverlight 5 RC and the Networking Stack – DLL Hell?
Over the weekend I decided to upgrade to Microsoft Silverlight 5 RC. I’m currently working on two Proof Of Concept (POC) applications that use different web streaming products – one likes to remain neutral in the streaming space 🙂 Unfortunately I appear to be getting mixed results from running my two applications.
The results with Silverlight 5 RC (5.0.60818.0) and Application One:
- IE9 – Exceptions thrown that tell me I can’t connect to the streaming server
- Chrome – No issues here, connected. 🙂
- Firefox – No issues here, connected – slightly slowed than Chrome.
The results with Silverlight 4 and Application One:
- All browser’s work without any issue
In the case of application Two and Streaming Product B, I get real-time prices into the browser for a few seconds, and then all three browsers crash 😦
With a clean Win7 64bit machine, VS2010, VS2010SP1 and the Silverlight 5 RC tools I still seem to get issues with IE9. More investigation needed 😦
Interestingly, Lightstreamer’s demo appears to be find with Silverlight 5 RC – at least over HTTP, HTTPS maybe another questions
