    Hi saadi,

    The problem is that the Silverlight application cannot get the list of files on C:\Images\, because its working in a sandbox and doesn't have permission to read the local file system. You should create a WebSite and make it give you the images. I'm attaching an example how to achieve this.
    Hope that helps.

    All the best,
    Miroslav Nedyalkov
