Silverlight Out Of Browser – OOB Application with setup icons and everything else..

Silverlight Out Of Browser – OOB Application with setup icons


There is a small issue that I faced while I followed the above article where the OOB settings didn’t allow me to view my icons from the resources folder even after setting the “Build Action property” of images as “Content”. So Jeff’s blog helped me out to do the manual way by configuring the

“OutOfBrowserSettings.xml” file to tweak the feature manually.

My OutOfBrowserSettings.xml finally looked like

<OutOfBrowserSettings ShortName="OOBApp Application" EnableGPUAcceleration="False" ShowInstallMenuItem="True">

<OutOfBrowserSettings.Blurb>OOBApp Application on your desktop; at home, at work or on the go.</OutOfBrowserSettings.Blurb>


<WindowSettings Title="OOBApp Application" />



<Icon Size="16,16">Resources/abstract_04q_16X16.jpg</Icon>

<Icon Size="32,32">Resources/abstract_04q_32X32.jpg</Icon>

<Icon Size="64,64">Resources/abstract_04q_64X64.jpg</Icon>

<Icon Size="128,128">Resources/abstract_04q_128X128.jpg</Icon>



More information on tweaking these properties could be found at
