XML Parsing Failed using samples

Jan 19, 2008 at 4:13 AM

I am trying to get slide.show 1.1 to work. I have tried both in FF and IE 7.

When I run any of the samples included I get an error and no display.

The error I get from Firefox is XML Parsing failed: line 370 from slideshow.js.

Any suggestions? I have tried deleting the DocType but get the same error.

@ksorbo, can you please paste the contents of your configuration and data XML file(s) in this thread? It sounds like there's a typo in one of them. I'm confident that I'll be able to point out the issue, since all of the samples work in Firefox.

Also, on the unrelated Firefox issue you mentioned, deleting your DOCTYPE is only a workaround to the issue described here. Please read the last post in that thread.

I get the same problem if I open the file with IE6.0 directly from my file system. If I run the sample via IIS on my local machine it works fine. Based on these results I imagine that some of the moving parts in the solution need to be processed by an app server ... Unfortunately I haven't really studied Silverlight in any detail to figure out which parts :-)
