    unable to add System.windows.Forms dll into silverlight 4.0 project

    Hi Everyone,

    I cudnt find dll in this locationl(system.windows.forms) C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\Silverlight\v4.0.

    So I tried to paste dll from location C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework\v4.0

    and while adding dll into siverlight project by add reference Im getting the following error message,
    "you can't add a reference to system.windows.forms.fll as it was not built against the silverlight runtime.silverlight projects will only work with silverlight assemblies"

    So where to get dll for silverlight?

    Silverlight is a different UI framework from Windows forms. You should use XAML to create your UI. Do you need a specific functionality in Windows Forms that is not available in Silverlight?
