I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but since it's a ASP.NET web application I'm using a Silverlight control in, it seemed appropriate!
I'm really new to using Silverlight, I only checked it out because I wrote an upload usercontrol for multiple files, and it was easy and effective.
So my question is: Is there a way to "host" silverlight directly in the application, or on the deployment server? (Windows Server 2008 R2 x64) Or does the user have to have Silverlight installed in order to use my control?
There will be quite a few people using the control once or so, so having them install a plugin just for that would probably make me choose not to use the Silverlight lib (eventhough it works great).
Any ideas/help? Would be much appreciated!

It would be no different if you used Flash or some other client side plugin. I say, don't worry about it. Installing Silverlight is plainless compared to Flash.

Thanks for the reply, yeah I suppose you're right - I'll leave it up and see what the users say after a few weeks
