Silverlight 3.0 has an optional dependency. The Auto-update feature requires Windows Update Agent (WUA) 3.0 to function properly.

Silverlight supports the following set of fonts: Arial, Arial Black, Comic Sans, Courier New, Georgia, Lucida Grande/Lucida Sans Unicode, Times New Roman, Trebuchet, and Verdana. To develop a web application that supports other fonts, at design time you need to add raw dependencies for the font files to the component. To ensure that when the component is built, the appropriate font components are linked to the respective font files. Set update settings for Silverlight to Never check for updates to prevent end users from installing updates directly.
Windows Logon is required in order to enable playback of protected content (DRM playback). Playback of protected content will not work with MinLogon.
