  • I have downloaded and installed the tools on my work PC but would like to install it on my home PC that is offline. Where can I Download the Silverlight 3.0 Developer Runtime?

    Thanks.

  • Not clear on what you mean by "Developer Runtime". If all you're looking to do on your home PC is execute the applications, then you can simply go to http://silverlight.net and install the runtime from there.

    To develop applications you'll need the tools and SDK, which you can get at the link above. I'm not sure if there's a package available for offline installation, however.
