The ‘beauty of the web’ is giving me problems with Silverlight 4 applications. I am publishing a new version of the application to the webserver, but IE9 is refusing to download (or even check?) for the new Xap file.
Looking at the Fiddler log, it is indeed not showing the request for the xap file:
However, when I look at the IIS log files on the server, there is no such request being logged.
When I do the same exercise using Google Chrome:
And there is a log entry in the IIS logs:
2011-03-18 11:19:33 188.8.131.52 GET /acos/ClientBin/Borealis.Acos.xap - 80 Euri\Rudi.Larno 184.108.40.206 Mozilla/5.0+(Windows;+U;+Windows+NT+6.1;+en-US)+AppleWebKit/534.16+(KHTML,+like+Gecko)+Chrome/10.0.648.151+Safari/534.16 304 0 0 217
Conclusion: IE9 FAIL
