    I am using PerformacePoint in SharePoint 2010 – and the site is using BI – PowerPivot Gallery (SilverLight 3.5 Carousel ..)
    I had another Silverlight applicaitons built in SilverLight 4.0.
    On client (Windows 7.0) over the Internet – it seems that I have a conflict switching between Silverlight 3.5 and Silverlight 4.0 (need to uninstal 4.0 run time and install 3.5 … or vice versa ..) did not test all.
    What is your experience? Help before I start testing.
