SilverLight Toolkit and Windows Phone 7

If you attempt to use the SilverLight Toolkit on the Windows Phone 7, you might get the error “Could not load file or assembly". Apparently the issue arises from a bug with running dlls signed with certs other than Windows Phone certs.

For now the only way to continue building apps is to remove the certs on these dlls.

Instructions for doing this can be found at: http://bit.ly/aODiLV

Note: you might have to run the following command before attempting to run the script on that site:

set-executionpolicy unrestricted

(the command set-executionpolicy remoteSigned, did not work for me). Also, remember to start your command prompt in Admin mode on Windows 7.

I had trouble with the instructions at the given link, but I managed to use DockPanel and WrapPanel from the Silverlight Toolkit for Windows Phone 7. I made my own instructions in an effort to be helpful: http://dalebarnardonwpf.wordpress.com/
