Xenocode enables developers to distribute Silverlight-based
applications without the need for installation of the Silverlight
runtime or administrative privileges. The Xenocode Silverlight Sandbox
lets users run popular Silverlight applications, including the
Microsoft Silverlight Gallery and WorldWide Telescope, directly from
the Web without installation.
The Xenocode application virtualization and streaming technology
allows software to run instantly from the Web, without installation or
hassles, the company said. Xenocode takes only minutes to deploy and
works with existing applications, Web sites, server infrastructure and
Unlike traditional hardware virtualization and remote presentation
technologies, applications deployed with Xenocode have virtually the

reside in isolated "sandboxes," allowing software to run side-by-side
without conflicts or modifications to the host device. Xenocode
requires no setup, configuration, clients, or device drivers and runs
legacy software seamlessly on Windows Vista and locked-down desktops.

virtualization technology eliminates the need for administrative rights
and software installations.
"We are excited to bring comprehensive support for Silverlight
technologies to our developer and application delivery products," Obata
said. "Xenocode gives Silverlight developers the ability to deliver
applications powered by this next-generation technology to the widest
Xenocode supports both Silverlight 2 and the current beta version of Silverlight 3.
