    Hi Stuart ,

    We use RadUpload for Silverlight and you should have this plugin installed. The same applies for each other application that uses Silverlight.

    Why not use RadAsyncUpload and allow it fallback to ASP.Net upload if necessary?

    Hi all, It seems that Sitefinity is a department of Microsoft. They always ignore that not each customer likes Silverlight, or not each user is allowed to run Silverlight at his computer. Also Sitrfinity PITS does not work with iPads ..... Stupid customers have to take it or to leave it .... Robert

    I do have silverlight installed and can't upload through the library interface (can only do it one at a time through the content edit module).  I can access the library and when I click "upload documents" I get a grey bar and nothing else.

    If it makes a difference, I'm on a Mac running Firefox 4 (but I've tested in Chrome and Safari and neither works).  My colleagues on PCs have had the same issue.

    Hi Ray,

    You need to configure your IIS to support Silverlight applications by adding following MIME types

    Extension MIME Type
    .xaml application/xaml+xml
    .xap application/x-silverlight-app

    Those are added by default in Windows 2008 but not in Windows 2003


    Kind regards,
    Sonya
