Playing with IronPython again

It's been quite a while I haven't posted anything on this blog. I was too lazy to write. Now that I regain the composure, try to write again.

I have tried IronPython 2.6 before. It was presented in Python User Group Singapore somewhere last year which captured my attention. The IronPython made it easy to play around with .NET and Silverlight stuffs -- which not easy for me as I haven't play with .NET stuffs for quite sometime. It worked well that time. Recently when I want to run the ipy.exe interpreter, I came into certain problem. I was running it on Vista box, but the application crashed after I started, after around 30 seconds waiting for nothing. I try to do some ordinary "dance" like unistall-install, with no luck.

Today I gave it a try again, and eventually it worked after I installed the .NET framework 4 and Silverlight 4 from the download site. I wasn't sure what I missed, nevertheless now it works.

I tried some stuffs with Silverlight only to remind that I need a XAML editor to edit forms. I tried to download and use kaxaml from http://www.kaxaml.com, but haven't had much luck. It installs well, but didn't run quite well.
