    Silverlight toolkit greyed out

    Hi guys
    I'm trying to enable silverlight to a asp.net website. However, my silverlight toolbox is greyed out in my asp.net website. I downloaded the silverlight 4.0 toolbox from here:http://silverlight.codeplex.com/
    I downloaded the april 2010 version. Then tried to add it to my toolbox and it won't add. I do not see any System.Web.Silverlight refrence anywhere.

    Now I can run my silverlight app in my asp.net website. If I add my .axp file to the ClientBin directory, then add the silverlight.js file to the website project.

    In my aspx file I add this:
    Code:
     <div id="silverlightControlHost" style="width:100%; height:100%;" >
            <object data="data:application/x-silverlight-2," 
                type="application/x-silverlight-2" width="50%" style="height: 500px;" 
                height="100%">
    		  <param name="source" value="ClientBin/clock.xap"/>
    		  <param name="onError" value="onSilverlightError" />
    		  <param name="background" value="white" />
    		  <param name="minRuntimeVersion" value="4.0.50826.0" />
    		  <param name="autoUpgrade" value="true" />
    		  <a href="http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=149156&v=4.0.50826.0" style="text-decoration:none">
     			  <img src="http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=161376" alt="Get Microsoft Silverlight" style="border-style:none"/>
    		  </a>
    	    </object>
            <%--<iframe id="_sl_historyFrame" style="visibility:hidden;height:100%;width:100%;border:0px"></iframe>--%>
        </div>
    It still works. However, I can't use the <asp:Silverlight> control. When I try to add this to my aspx file I get an error.

    <%@ Register Assembly="System.Web.Silverlight"
    Namespace="System.Web.UI.SilverlightControls"
    TagPrefix="asp" %>

    Anyone have any ideas on why this is the way it is and how can I get teh <asp:silverlight> control? thanks.

    The <asp:Silverlight /> control was deprecated with the release of Silverlight 3. The method you're using above is the correct way to add Silverlight to a page.
