Hi their,

Just thinking loud here, but can we be able to host this application online like on facebook, personal hosting or something?

I see on facebook that their is a application called but it is no way closer to what Family.Show is like.

I downloaded twice the source code for Family.Show 2.0 as well as 3.0 but I am just not sure enough as to where to make the change as the dot

Did any one else had the similar thought?

yeah, can we able to decode/transform the application into web-based application ? and host it in personal hosting ? I was build a website for my big family, and now I am searching design for my family tree. I have been searching over internet, and I found this sample, and I think this application is very best ever for family tree. Anybody can help me ?

WPF applications can be made into a browser application so I tried to make a viewer which you can use through a webpage.  I had sucess at getting a viewer to work, however, it's not possible to get this to run on the web as a true browser application due to certificate, trust and security issues.  You can run the thing in debug mode, locally, but on the internet, it won't work.

Silverlight is also a no go area as Silverlight does not include all the required resources that Family Show needs to run such as System.IO.Package.  Even the new 3.0 Beta version doesn't support packages.  Silverlight is a subset of WPF so generally you can convert Silverlight to WPF but not so easily the other way around!  Silverlight would be a possibility if you rewrote the the program bearing in mind Silverlights more limited feature set.

I'm not an professional so I expect a business/company could probably do something about the signing and certificates but for me, I'm afraid I'll have to give up.
