But one point is important. If you don’t have .NET 3.0 framework installed on your new server, you may have to add a new MIME type for the website which hosting Silverlight. Otherwise the Silverlight will just refuse to work and show no clue what’s wrong.

Start -> Run -> type inetmgr to open iis manager.

Then rigth click on your site and click properties. After that choose tab Http Headers and there you will see button MIME Types … click it and add xaml in textbox.
