Hi All,

I checked through the existing posts but I couldn't find an answer to this one:

In a Prism Silverlight OOB application, is it still necessary to call CheckAndDownloadUpdateAsync to detect and download any updates to the (main) XAP file?

Or is this handled by the Prism framework? I did not find that method call in the Prism source code either, so I am not sure if this is handled in a different way.

The Prism Library does not provide a means to handle updates in Silverlight OOB applications. If you need to detect and download updates to the XAP file, you should call the aforementioned method, as you would do with any other Silverlight OOB application.

I hope you find this helpful.
