Debug Out Of Browser (OOB) Silverlight apps

An installed (OOB) Silverlight application is supposed to run the same as in browser, but sometimes you might want to debug it.

First you could attach VS to the sllauncher.exe process, but there is easier:

  1. Run your application in the browser and install it OOB.
  2. In the Silverlight project properties go to the “Debug” tab and select “Installed out-of-browser application”.
  3. In your Solution set your Silverlight project as the  Startup Project.
  4. Hit F5 and you’re now debugging the OOB app!
