Maybe Socket Bug in Policy Code in Silverlight 2 beta 1

Michael Schwarz on Saturday, March 8, 2008

In my last post [1] I wrote about how you can use sockets in Silverlight 2 beta 1 [1]. Well, when publishing my application to a Internet domain the code didn't work. I always get a socket exception: error code 10013, access denied. I have put an example online at [2].

I'm following up with the people who wrote the policy code and see what's going on here. You'll get a message here on my blog [3] when there is a fix for the source code or a work-around. Well, Silverlight 2 beta 1 [4] is beta software, so we are collecting missing features and bugs during this time.

Update: see my blog post [5]about how to get rid of that problem.
