The Great Silverlight Competency Test #6

This is the sixth of twelve questions in The Great Silverlight Competency Test –  each of which I believe a competent Silverlight Programmer ought to be able to complete within no more than 1 hour.

Each of the twelve tests will appear on Monday, a viable solution will be provided 10 days later on the following Wednesday.

The solution I provide will tell you how to self-score your own solution (each on a scale of 0-100), and at the end I’ll try to provide a metric for the entire experience.  25 points for each bug you find in my code!

On the honor system you may post your scores into the book giveaway and I will give one of the top scorers a copy of the book. (Microsoft employees not eligible, void where prohibited, yadda yadda).

Please feel free to help one another by discussing the problem, ideas and questions in the comments for each exercise.

    Hi. Just go to the search box in the upper left corner of this page and type in Competency. They’ll all come up for you.

    Christopher, I wish i could help you here, but the best bet would be to contact Microsoft Technical support and let them know you have an installation issue.

    Best of luck with it.

    Thanks for posting these tests Jesse. I have the first post and this post. Can you please send me links to 2-5. After studying SL for a couple of months I am anxious to see where I am at.

    Hello, I have found the good link to contact someone who could help me about Windows server 2008; I can not install it, it make all the things to install and at the end, whe files are copied, it tell me that files required are missing and it can not continue, so I just can restart it again and again.
    I do not know to read the stack wich could give you some clues I mean but if could even help, it will be great, sincerely.
