A way to eliminate the foreign language Dlls in Silverlight
Posted by robkraft on April 27, 2010
If you compile silverlight projects you may notice that you get 8 non-english language versions of your DLL. Although this causes no major harm, I personally prefer not to create them because it takes time, it clutters up the results of my nant build output, and I don’t need them. To eliminate the the eight foreign language DLLs from your build process, go to your silverlight libraries folder which is probably C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Silverlight\v3.0\Libraries\Client, and delete the eight subfolders (de, es, fr, it, ja, ko, zh-Hans, and zh-Hant). With the Visual Studio 2010 install, it looks like you also need to delete the same subfolders from C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\Silverlight\v3.0.
