Silverlight 5 Installers Available for Download

Jason Beres / Wednesday, January 04, 2012

Last week we posted updated installation packages which target the new Silverlight 5 SDK & runtime.  The following products have installers for Silverlight 5:

  • NetAdvantage for Silverlight Line of Business
  • NetAdvantage for Silverlight Data Visualization
  • NetAdvantage Reporting

 

NetAdvantage for LightSwitch does not have a Silverlight 5 option, and will not until Silverlight 5 is supported on that platform. 

To get the latest installers for Silverlight 5, you can log into MyIG and select the 2011.2 packages, or an easier route is to go here:

http://www.infragistics.com/downloads/default.aspx

And select the Silverlight 5 specific installer you need:

 

Once installed, you can use the Version Utility (located in the Infragistics Start Menu folder) to upgrade your app in the following steps:

  • Select Upgrade Options on Analysis results screen
  • Select CLR 50 from CLR drop-down, and then SL volume
  • Select Save & Analyze Again
  • Select the Custom Upgrade button.

 

Note: If you are coming from 2010.2 or earlier you will need to upgrade to Silverlight 4 first to handle the renaming of assemblies/controls that occurred in 2010.3.

Note: the Platform Installer will continue to install the Silverlight 4 assemblies.  If you want to use Silverlight 5 assemblies, you need to explicitly download the Silverlight 5 package from the list.

Silverlight Support Matrix

To ensure that your 2011.1 and 2011.2 projects run correctly with the Silverlight 5 runtime, we did the following testing:

2011.1 Silverlight 5 Support

2011.1 controls are not built with the Silverlight 5 SDK, we will continue to ship these as Silverlight 4 only controls through their support lifecycle.  We have however regression tested all of the 2011.1 controls against the Silverlight 4 runtime and Silverlight 5 runtime.

2011.2 Silverlight 5 Support

With the exception of NetAdvantage Reporting, the 2011.2 controls will ship with both Silverlight 4 assemblies and Silverlight 5 assemblies.

  • Silverlight 4 assemblies are tested against the Silverlight 4 runtime and Silverlight 5 runtime.
  • Silverlight 5 assemblies are tested against the Silverlight 5 runtime.

 

2011.1 NetAdvantage Reporting Silverlight 5 Support

  • NetAdvantage Reporting will only support Silverlight 5 from this point onwards. 

 

Future Silverlight 4 Support

  • Beginning with the February 2012 Service Release, we will only patch ship Silverlight 5 compiled assemblies for 2011.2.  Silverlight 5 Service Releases will be available as separate downloads via MyIG on infragistics.com.
  • When 2012.1 ships in early Q2 2012, we will only ship Silverlight 5 compiled assemblies, with the exception of LightSwitch, which will continue as Silverlight 4 until Microsoft updates the SDK and runtime.
