Installing Jan Tielens’ Silverlight graphs to a MOSS Server

Standard

I read Jan ‘s blog quite often, and last week he came up with this great (free) Webpart (here) to display a graph of any list in your Sharepoint site.

3a) create a VBS file containing

if WScript.Arguments.Count
3b) execute
ADDMIMETYPE.VBS .xap application/x-silverlight-app
