FYI – refreshing a Silverlight XAP file

Something that will save you some hair and time, I know that I have very little of the former left. No, really – most of my hair left me in my twenties.

Anways, I was experimenting with a Silverlight application on my  hosting provider, and I would make a change, upload the XAP, and refresh the browser, but nothing would happen. I would close the browser tab and reopen it, and the change I just made wouldn’t appear.

That was because I needed to open a whole new browser, not a new tab. After I opened the new browser window, then my changes were displayed. I would have liked to have remembered that earlier in the morning and saved myself an hour, but this time the lesson has really sunk into my brain.
