Hello Experts,

I have developed one web application using silverlight 4.0. Now the requirement is to launch desktop application (could be third party or any platform) from the silverlight browser (mostly IE). Moving further I am planning to establish a communication (TCP/MSMQ) channel among them to communicate. The desktop application may or may not be installed at client side.

So is it possible to achieve this ?

thanks in advance....:)

If you are running the Silverlight application in the browser, it is not possible at all.
SL runs under high security constraints and thus it is not possible to run anything outside of the browser.

Silverlight out of browser applications[^] run with elevated privileges and there might be some opportunity to launch a desktop application though Oout of browser (though I have never tried it).
