    I downloaded the RadControls for Silverlight and am evaluating them.  I cannot preview a single example project.  When I open the project in Visual Studio or Microsoft Expression and press F5, it builds and starts the browser which then gets an error.  The error is always "Failed to Download a Platform Extension" followed by a zip file.  The ZIP file is always located with the HTML file that was used to start the project.  For example, if I browse to %Teleric Install Dir%\Demos\Examples\Scheduler\Bin\Debug and start TestPage.html in Firefox or in IE, I receive the error for System.XML.Linq.Zip which is in the same directory.

    How can I try any of these examples out?

    Hi Paul,

    When you open the examples in Visual Studio please make sure that the Examples.Web project is set as startup project.

    This should fix the error.

    I am having the same problem but Examples.Web is unavailable. I guess it's because i don't have csharp installed with my VS2010?

    Hi Kim,

    Do you open the ExamplesVB_SL.sln file from the <RadControls for Silverlight intall folder> \ Demos folder?

    Best wishes,

    The example solution is way, way too big and takes about 10 minutes to compile and run. it would be much, much better to have a seperate solution for each project (control) to make it easier on us to get these samples up and running with just the components we are evaluating or implementing.

    That is not an acceptable solution as most of the time we need to use a single project as the base for an app build and we can not do this in this case.  Please explain how we can get this error ' Failed to download a platform extension: System.Xml.Linq.zip' out of the the sample Map.Silverlight.

    Thanks,
