I see always a black slide show!!

I am really despaired, because I tried to run the 2 in 2 different approaches, but I always see a black rectangle:

System: WinXP SP3, IE8, Silverlight 3 installed.

Download: "Slide.Show 2 Release (Silverlight 3).zip", "Slide.Show 2 Source (Silverlight 3).zip"

I am working locally on my PC without Internet.

1. I tried it from scratch following the description "Slide.Show 2 Quick Start Guide.pdf" step by step. I copied file "Vertigo.SlideShow.xap" to the same directory of the file "default.html".  It does not work!

2. I tried to run the "Simple" example. Before I adapted the path of the file "Vertigo.SlideShow.xap" from value="../ClientBin/Vertigo.SlideShow.xap" to value="Vertigo.SlideShow.xap" and copied the file "Vertigo.SlideShow.xap" in also to the same directory of the file "default.html". It does not work!

What do I make wrong? Do I need the IIS when I am working locally?

Thanks a lot in advance for advice....

Hello again,

I found out, working lcoally is the problem! When I copy the samples to my provider server and call it over the Internet it works fine.

What do I have to do that the slideshow works locally (no Internet connection) in my browser?

Were you able to find out how to run it locally?

I had this problem, then I tried debugging the page rather than just browsing it. It worked, and after that it worked when browsing. Weird!
