Limitations of .XBAP web application


The WPF/E branch of WPF is designed for Internet delivery and to be platform independent
XAML Browser applications (XBAPs) are a variation of a WPF application which can run over the Internet. However, there are considerable restrictions on XBAPs:

- XBAPs will only run on windows machine.

- XBAPs require Version 3.0 of the .NET Framework installed on client machine.

- XBAPs require Internet Explorer 6 or 7

- Standard on Vista but requires a custom install on Windows XP

- Because XBAP applications run in a Browser (in the partially trusted Internet Zone), they are denied certain functionality

- File I/O is denied

- Access to the Registry is denied

- XAML is missing crucial HTML features.

For now, it can be concluded that WPF can be used for the application which displays the information not for inserting/modifying the data.
