Silverlight deprecation in Dynamics Marketing

Note: From Silverlight deprecation affecting digital asset management in Dynamics Marketing

Microsoft Dynamics Marketing uses Silverlight to deliver digital asset management capabilities, such as uploading, marking up, or annotating files. However, the Microsoft Edge browser and the version 45 release of Google Chrome (expected in September 2015) do not include support for Silverlight. Deprecation of support for Silverlight in these browsers will result in the loss of some digital asset management capabilities.

Users can continue to access Silverlight components for digital asset management capabilities by using Internet Explorer 11, Firefox, and Safari, as these browsers still support Silverlight.

Plan is to replace the application components that use Silverlight with HTML-based components over the next few months. In Dynamics Marketing 2015 Update 1.2, the application will support HTML-based components for use in browsers that no longer support Silverlight, which will give users the ability to:

  • Upload files
  • Search, retrieve, and access files and folders
  • Access folders and attachments related to any entity record
